Doctors Challenging the Use of Igenex


The next time your doctor or any doctor challenges the use of Igenex for Lyme testing ~ use this information:

(1)  Is It Really FDA Approved?

FDA does not approve companies.  FDA does not "approve" health care facilities, laboratories, or manufacturers. 

http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm047470.htm

*******************************************************************
(2)  The Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA) regulations include federal standards applicable to all U.S. facilities or sites that test human specimens for health assessment or to diagnose, prevent, or treat disease. 

(Interesting note) ~> CDC, in partnership with CMS and FDA, supports the CLIA program and clinical laboratory quality.

(3) Igenex IS CLIA approved !!!!

Any Questions????

(This is not disputing that other labs may be used.  This post is in support of those who want to use Igenex, showing that it meets all the same requirements as other labs ~ Only difference is that Igenex lives and breathes tickborne testing day after day for over 20 years ~ THERE's THE ANSWER TO THE CHALLENGE!!!)
