Tick-borne Diseases

As infections with Borrelia are often accompanied by coinfections, they should also be taken into consideration. Coinfections complicate the diagnosis and treatment because they often evoke a more complex symptomatology. The co-pathogens can cause very specific, but also unspecific and “overlapping” symptoms.

In order to better detect these pathogens, Dr. Armin Schwarzbach has developed a coinfections checklist. The analysis of the checklist enables a better targeted selection of necessary laboratory tests for coinfections. This preselection prevents expensive panel testing for our patients.
Our team will gladly help you with the optimal selection of our tests depending on your individual symptoms. Here you can find our automated coinfections checklist and lyme checklist.
