Re: Dr. suspects lyme, no symptoms?
Hi febu2, welcome to the board!
I am very sorry about your miscarriages.
Many people are bitten by ticks without knowing it. They are tiny, they inject a numbing agent so you cannot feel them on you, and they often go in hard to see places.
I am not familiar with these tests, hopefully someone else is. Different labs have different ranges for the CD-57. You may want to get a Western Blot test done by IgeneX Lab in Palo Alto, CA. This test lists a series of numerical bands with a + - or IND after each one. IgeneX usese more sensitive testing and lists more bands on the Western Blot. Some bands are specific for Lyme disease.
Besides Lyme disease, ticks can also transmit several co-infections including Babesiosis, two types of Ehrlichiosis (HME & HGE), Bartonella, and Mycoplasma. Many people who have Lyme are co-infected. It is important to be tested for these by a Lyme reputable lab.
Have you had your thyroid checked? I believe thyroid disorders can cause miscarriages. I suggest having the Free T3, Free T4 (besides the T3 and T4) and thyroid antibodies tested in addition to the normal panel. They are not usually done but are necessary for a comprehensive view.
Do not give up, you will find out what is wrong. Hang in there okay?
