Hi, can you please help me understand results. Just received today.

Analysis Result Units Reference Range Chart

Haematology

5 Blood count

5 Leucocytes 8,10 Tsd./ul 4,00 - 10,40 [ .....*.. ]

5 Erythrocytes 4,34 Mill./ul 3,96 - 5,16 [ ..*..... ]

5 Hemoglobin 12,8 g/dl 11,6 - 15,5 [ ..*..... ]

5 Hematocrit 43,80 % 35,00 - 45,00 [ .......* ]

5 MCV + 100,90 fl 80,00 - 96,00 [ ........ *>

5 MCH 29,50 pg 26,00 - 33,00 [ ....*... ]

5 MCHC - 29,20 g/dl 32,00 - 36,00 <* ........ ]

5 Thrombocytes 363,00 Tsd./ul 176,00 - 391,00 [ ......*. ]

5 Differential Blood count

5 Neutroph. Granulocytes 67,80 % 40,00 - 75,00 [ ......*. ]

5 Lymphocytes 18,60 % 17,00 - 47,00 [ *....... ]

5 Monocytes 11,20 % 4,00 - 12,00 [ .......* ]

5 Eosin. Granulocytes 0,90 % < 7,00 [ .*...... ]

5 Basoph. Granulocytes 1,50 % < 2,00 [ ......*. ]

Borrelia EliSpot

1 Borrelia b. Full Antigen 0 SI

0-1 = negative

2-3 = weak positive

> 3 = positive

1 Borrelia b. OSP-Mix ! 2 SI

0-1 = negative

2-3 = weak positive

> 3 = positive

1 Borrelia burgdorferi LFA-1 ! 2 SI

0-1 = negative

2-3 = weak positive

> 3 = positive

The results of the Elispot tests indicate weak current

cellular activity against Borrelia burgdorferi.


Explanation of antigens:

Borrelia-burgdorferi Full Antigen: Borrelia burgdorferi B31

reference strain (Borrelia b sensu stricto)

Borrelia-burgdorferi Peptide Mix: OspA from Borrelia b.

sensu stricto, Borrelia afzelii, Borrelia garinii + OspC

native + DbpA recombinant.

Borrelia-burgdorferi LFA-1 (Lymphocyte Function Antigen 1)

Own body protein + Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto

(shared epitope). LFA1 can be associated with autoimmune

diseases: collagenosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis,

vasculitis. If positive or borderline positive look at:

ANA, CCP-antibodies, ANCA.

CD3-/CD57+ Cells

5 CD3-/CD56+ Flow Cytometry

5 T cells CD3+ (%) 65,70 % 62,00 - 80,00 [ .*...... ]

5 T cells CD3+ (absolute) 990 /ul 900 - 1900 [ *....... ]

5 NK cells CD56+ CD3- (%) 13,40 % 6,00 - 29,00 [ ..*..... ]

5 NK cells CD56+ CD3- (absolute) 202 /ul 60 - 700 [ .*...... ]

5 CD57+ NK-cells (%) 20,96 % 2,00 - 77,00 [ ..*..... ]

5 CD57+ NK-cells (absolute) - 42 /ul 100 - 360 <* ........ ]

The result of the CD57-cell count indicates chronic

immune-suppression, which can be caused by Borrelia

burgdorferi or other bacteria like Chlamydia pneumoniae or

Mycoplasma pneumoniae.

Ehrlichia & Anaplasma EliSpot

1 Ehrlichia/Anaplasma EliSpot 0 SI

0-1 = negative

2-3 = weak positive

> 3 = positive

The result of the EliSpot test indicates no current cellular

activity against Ehrlichia/Anaplasma.

Chlamydia pneumoniae EliSpot

1 Chlamydia pneumoniae-EliSpot 1 SI

0-1 = negative

2-3 = weak positive

> 3 = positive


The result of the EliSpot test indicates no current cellular

activity against Chlamydia pneumoniae.

Coxsackie IgG-/IgA-antibodies

3 Coxsackie-Virus IgG A7 (IFT) + 1:10000 < 1:100 [ ........ *>

3 Coxsackie-Virus IgG B1 (IFT) + 1:10000 < 1:100 [ ........ *>

3 Coxsackie-Virus IgA A7 (IFT) + 1:1000 < 1:10 [ ........ *>

3 Coxsackie-Virus IgA B1 (IFT) + 1:100 < 1:10 [ ........ *>

The specific Coxsackie-Virus Type A7/B1-IgG-/IgA-antibodies

indicate current humoral immune response against

Coxsackie-Virus Type A7 and Coxsackie-Virus Type B1.

The test system is highly specific for Coxsackie Virus

antibodies. Other Enterovirus antibodies (f.e. Echovirus

antibodies) are not detectable.

Well, as you noted the testing reveals a weak positive For Borrelia (Lyme) and for Coxsackie virus - just don't believe that it's a 'weak' infection though - it only means that your body is not producing enough antibodies to the bacteria to get a higher 'score'. The same goes for your other test results as well - Lyme infection lowers the function of the immune system, so the testing isn't as accurate as it needs to be. A negative test actually means nothing with these infections.

Do you have a LLMD?

woodymo, are these your test results?

I'm so sorry if they are. So you and your child both have lyme......

Now it is time for treatment.

Hugs of comfort. It is difficult having lyme and also taking care of a child with lyme. I see people here on the forum doing that and I can't imagine the strength it takes.

Woodymo the results of these tests would be similar to a pregnancy test showing a "slight" or "mild" pregnancy. The major failing of these tests is that they look for immune system response to bacteria that are very adept at avoiding such a response. It is time to do your homework, find a llmd and go to war against the critters. They are already at war with you.
Infected October 2015, diagnosed per lab - RMSF October 2016. EBV, Mycoplasma pneumonia. WB band 41 positive, Babesia positive. Bart symptoms.

Hi, thanks everyone. I'm a bit shocked but need to get on with it and try fight it off. Peteza, yes my child has it too. I'm waiting to so Consultant for her so hoping to book in now myself too. Thanks everyone.

Do you suggest anything to start the fight e.g. diet, nutrients, minerals. I have been going to a Kinesologist for my child, using Zinc,Silver, Clover, Vitamin D3.

Thanks again everyone x

On the diet I suggest the "common sense" diet. No sugar, no package stuff, no fast food, limited diary, limited white things ( rice, bread, potatoes), no alcohol. Basically a good clean diet.

Eat as organic as you can. I would do more fish than red meat. I think eggs got a bad rap years ago and I find nothing wrong with many eggs.

Balance is the key to everything. If you overdo anything, be prepared to pay for it.

Balance in life. Happy should outweigh the sad. Calm should outweigh the anxiety. And laughter should outweigh everything.

Laughing can heal!!! I totally believe it.

Start with a multiple vitamin. Make sure you are getting enough magnesium. There are many types so ask your kinesiologist which is best for you.


You are a Mom, so use that Momma Bear instinct that was given you. You will do fine.

And find people you can trust for advice. If you get a good vibe from a kinesiologist, go with it.

And don't forget to ask questions. I don't know how many times I didn't ask because I thought it was a stupid question.... I came to regret that.

Good luck and God bless. It isn't easy with a sick babe and you are sick too.
