I just got a call with my CD-57 results. It was 34 (LabCorp). My first CD57 which was done 1 1/2 years ago before treatment started was a 76, I was taking Cat's Claw for Tendinitis for 6 months before I was diagnosed with LD. Cat's Claw is suppose to boost your CD-57 results, and I think my first results were higher because of that reason. I have been on Dr. Zhang's for 6 months and have seen some improvements. I was hoping to see a number that reflected that. I am discouraged at this point.
2001 symptoms started:
Tingling in fingers and toes both sides, not tested at that time for LD
2007 Summer tested pos. WB, diagnosed with LD, tested neg for co-infections thru Igenex
Abx - Doxy 100mg 2x/day for 3 weeks (before diagnosis)
Amoxicillin 1gm 2x/day for 1 month
Amoxicillin 1gm 3x/day with Probenecid 500mg 2x/day 5 months
Currently on Dr. Zhang's protocol
