Can any one tell me exactly what the cd57 panel is,
I never heared of the test cd57 panel till today, i wondered if its worth getting this test done..
 
I have an appointment with my gp on friday, and im trying to go with loads of tests i want doing, 
 
where do i need to be tested for this, does it have to be a certain lab.
 
 
 
The other test i wondered if i may think be worth checking for is the Chlamydia Pneumonia..
 
Im trying to get tests done that fit my symptoms
 
Thanks  :-)

Someone can probably clarify this - but the way my dr explained it to me (in basic terms) was that it's a measure of the strength of your immune system. The higher the number the better. If your immune system is weakend by fighting infection your CD-57 numbers will be lower.

I could be wrong, but this was my basic understanding of it .
