Well, sure it's hard to prove you have Lyme. It's hard to prove other illnesses as well. I won't say all LLMDs are infallible, but if one has given you a clinical diagnosis, that is really 'proof'.
I am pasting below a bit of a piece on CD57 from Health Centers of America. Altho this does not help me w/ the other numbers given on the test.
Test interpretation: Low CD57 occurs in chronic Lyme or when the disease has been active for over 1 year. The count reflects the degree of infection. It is not a diagnostic test but is used as a marker for Lyme being active. Test done by LabCorp.
