Hi All,
Just wondering what LLMD's are saying now about the CD-57 test.  Your answers are appreciated!
Thanks, KO
2001 symptoms started:
Tingling in fingers and toes both sides, not tested at that time for LD
2007 Summer tested pos. WB, diagnosed with LD, tested neg for co-infections thru Igenex
Abx - Doxy 100mg 2x/day for 3 weeks (before diagnosis)
Amoxicillin 1gm 2x/day for 1 month
Amoxicillin 1gm 3x/day with Probenecid 500mg 2x/day  5 months 
Currently on Dr. Zhang's protocol

Hi KO-LD.  From what I understand, not all Lyme doctors run this test.

Mine still uses it. My daughter and I were both 36 and one son was 56 and the other 120 in February. Our Dr. put my daughter and I on NK Stim and said even the 120 was considered lower. I believe our first goal is to get over 200.

I agree with Ticker though. not all Dr.'s use this test. My first LLMD didn't.

Mine was 360 at my sickest. Now after treating 2 years, I just got back my new CD 57 and I am now 205. Sigh

My doctor told me if you have bartonella, this test will read normal.
