    Emmy, I'm no expert on test. But reading it over and looking online at information. Looks as though you could be positive for Lyme and Babesia.

    My doctor will not run the cd57 on his patients, beings anything could make them low. such as any bacterial or viral infection. BUT all doctors are different.

    Are you seeing a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor? (LLMD) If not you need to search one out and get to them. They will go solely on your clinical symptoms and not on test. ONLY a true LLMD can treat these diseases properly.

    Hope you find answers soon.

    Jodie

    Emmy what symptoms are you having?

    Who ran these test on you, I mean are you seeing a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor?

    Many doc's do use the CD57. Just meant my doctor doesn't.

    To rule in or out Lyme, you truly need to see a LLMD. Many do not take insurance, so we have to pay out of pocket. But it is so worth spending time on other tests, and being ran through the ringer. No matter what you have besides the Babesia, it needs to be looked into.

    Many Lyme doctors go solely on clinical evaluation, and many use Igenex Lab, in Palo Alto ca. But then again, you still can come up with a false negative. So the reason to get to a knowledgable doctor in Lyme and co-infections.

    Babesia needs treatment also. That other doctors don't treat like a specialist will.

    Hope you find the help you need.

    Jodie
