Request A Test Offers 10% off of Lyme Disease Testing in August 2014
Date:8/4/2014

Brecksville, OH (PRWEB) August 04, 2014

This August, Request A Test, a leading national provider of direct to consumer lab testing, is offering 10% off of all testing for Lyme Disease. To take advantage of this discount, customers just need to use promo code LYMED10 when placing an order. Summer is upon us and with everyone spending more time outdoors, the risk for illnesses like Lyme disease is significantly higher. Lyme Disease is spread through tick bites and can cause serious health problems if left untreated. Blood testing for Lyme can help a person identify an exposure so they can work with their doctor to be treated as soon as possible. Request A Test offers a number of testing options for Lyme Disease such as the IgM antibodies test which can be used to detect a recent exposure or the popular Total and IgM Antibodies test which can help distinguish between recent and past infections. Both of these antibody tests include an automatic reflex to a Confirmatory Western Blot test to verify any positive or equivocal results. Through Request A Test, anyone can order blood testing for Lyme Disease without the necessity of making a doctor’s appointment for a prescription or getting approval from an insurance company. Testing is affordable and easy to order and customers have access to 1000's of convenient lab sites across the country. The ability to order their own testing allows people to take charge of their health and become aware of potential medical problems before they become more serious.

Lyme Disease is contracted through exposure to the Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria which is commonly spread by Black Legged Ticks also known as Deer Ticks. While Lyme disease is not the only disease spread through tick bites, it is the most common. According to research conducted by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), as little as 10% of Lyme Disease cases are reported. Part of the reason for this is that many people fail to realize they have even been bitten. The ticks which spread Lyme secrete a numbing agent which causes many people to not even feel the bite and the ticks themselves can be as small as the head of a pin. Many of the early symptoms associated with Lyme Disease are common to other conditions such as the flu. These symptoms can include fever, chills, headache, or fatigue. The most distinctive indicator of Lyme Disease is a round “bulls-eye” shaped rash around the site of the bite. However, some people do not develop this rash or may have it in an area of the body that is difficult to see. If left untreated, Lyme Disease can cause severe joint inflammation and arthritis, facial paralysis, numbness in the arms and legs, impaired memory and irregular heartbeat. In some cases fatal complications can arise from damage done to the heart, lungs, and nervous system. Prompt treatment with antibiotics can cure Lyme Disease in most people but early diagnosis is key. The CDC recommends a 2 step blood testing process to screen for Lyme Disease. An initial antibody test which looks for IGM antibodies for a recent exposure or IgG antibodies for a past infection is commonly done first. The antibody test is typically followed up by a Western Blot test to confirm any initial results that come back positive or indeterminate. Neither test should be taken as definitive on its own. It is always important to follow up on positive test results with a doctor.

“Summer is a great time to focus on the health risks posed by Lyme Disease,” says Noelle Perez, founder and President of Request A Test. “We hope people who are at risk for Lyme Disease take advantage of this savings opportunity to get tested and take the first step in protecting their health.”

The chance to save an extra 10% on Lyme Disease testing is only good through the end of August 2014. Use promo code LYMED10 when ordering any test from Request A Test's Lyme Disease category to save.
