Hi Guys: I have just returned from my immunologist appt. and all of my T-cells are low again along with the IgGs. Do any of you have this tested and does a Lyme doc concern himself with these results? I do not have a LLMD yet. Do they normally do these tests?? Thanks- D

Mine does, every three months -- but I'm not quite at three mos, yet, so have nothing to compare to original tests.

Dr says CD57 does not react significantly to treatment -- but CD4 can be used to monitor improvement, because levels react more quickly to treatment. Apparently, CD57 will rapidly rise AFTER treatment is longterm/successful -- but not enough, month by month, to monitor. So CD4 is it, I guess.
