cd-57 test.....

I called my doctor's office and asked what my cd-57 result was, she said it is 60. What is the normal range? I would have asked my LLMD, but I was told that she doesn't come to the phone unless it is life threatening.
If you don't mind me asking, what is your cd-57?

Thanks,
J

Hi J -

The paperwork I have on CD-57 says 60 on the lowest end of the range but "chronic lyme" would be way under that. It also says that patients "cured" would have a count above 180. So, at least that gives you an idea (I hope). 60 is pretty low! Mine was 119. I've almost given up on being "cured" though. This has all been too damn much and the medical community certainly hasn't helped....

Hope that helps you though!

Take care and God bless, Andy

Re: cd-57 test.....

I'm sorry bill, I forget alot these days....are you dx'd with lyme?
When was your cd-57 119? At time of diagnosis? I guess I'm trying to find anything I can to back up this lyme dx. For some reason, it's just hard for me to believe that what's going on with me is really lyme. Even tho LLMD said she sure it is.

Take care,
J

Re: cd-57 test.....

3love... The range for the cd-57 test is 60-300.. I just had mine done recently and it was 42.. From what my dr. says is that I shouldnt worry they have seen people in the single digits and that they arent that concerned just yet with it.. People with chronic lyme or re-occuring will be below 60.. healthy people are normally between the 60-300 range.. he also says that with treatment it goes up.. but usually chronic lyme patients he finds stay around the 80-100 mark even when they feel better.. so if your at 60 dont sweat it to much it will only go up with treatment..

I was diagnosed with Lyme by my PCP in August of 2006 and then got a positive result with IGeNex (even by CDC standards on the IgG) in December. I did about 6 months of Doxy x 200/twice a day and then 2 months of IV Rocephin - I believe it was too low a dose though. I am pretty sure it was 1 mg/unit whereas most people I hear say the needed dose is 4 mg/unit. My "LLMD" also said he suspected Babesiosis but never had me tested for it.

My CD-57 test was done in early May.

I've had some nasty back problems lately and have been taking a muscle relaxant for it. So, I am not sure how much (if any) of my fog has lifted. The neurologist I saw a few weeks back told me Prozac was causing my tremors but I don't agree. I've been on Prozac for a long time and the tremors just started to be really obvious in the last few months.

At this point, I just don't know which way to turn. My wife has her hands full with our 1 1/2 and 3 yr olds so she can't really "advocate" for me much and I am not thinking very clearly on my own.

Anyway, I hope you get the help & results you need soon.

Take care and God bless, Andy

Re: cd-57 test.....

Not sure where you had your CD57 Test done. The 2 main labs that do it, have different ranges.

I had mine done at *******.

There the range on my sheet states 60-360 for normal. Mine was 360. Go figure that one. That was even before I was on any abx's!

Re: cd-57 test.....

That's odd. 360? I thought your cd-57 was supposed to be low if you have lyme?

Later,
J
