Do many of your docs use the CD57 test?

They say this test is useful for diagnosing chronic Lymes, indicating recent infection? Do only certain labs use this also? Mine came back at a "3" with a popular lab?

Hi!
My doctor used this test along with the Igenix panel. Mine came back in the 30's which is indicative of lyme. He said only Lab Corp has the patent on the CD57 test. Good Luck.

Re: Do many of your docs use the CD57 test?

Hi rachelle01.

My LLMD uses the Stricker panel (CD57) as a tool for diagnosing Lyme. Mine was zero - yikes!

I haven't had it tested in a while but it sure would be interesting to see what my levels are now that I feel a bit better.

Peace and health to you,
Mickie
