Is there any blood tests that just show how well your immune system is working? I don't know if this is too broad of a question but I sure would like to know at what level mine is functioning. I feel like I'm losing the battle with one of these bugs and am thinking if my immune system was sharper I'd be in better shape by now.

some doctors use the CD57 test. When I was tested my number was 280 which was normal so my doctor thought that I had not had LD for very long or it would be low. Maybe you could ask your doctor about it.

Your IgG levels and T-cell levels will show  how your immune system is working. Here they call it your "immune status."  D
