I have not yet had a blood test. (see my post in Newbie area).  For many years, I have taken pretty large vitamin supplements: A large daily multi w/ minerals, E, MEGADOSES of C & Betacarotene, garlic (supposed to be natural antibiotic), amino acid, B complex.  I take the C, E, &betacarotine doses at least 3X day, and the garlic 2X/ day.  Recently I have added fish oil, 1X/day.
I understand that antibiotic use before a blood test can interfere w/ the results. Does anyone have any idea if vitamins would interfere? Thanks for any info anyone can provide! (ps, obviously my vitamins are not helping now! Except that I never get a cold and hardly ever the real flu!)

Hi, about 1 1/2 years ago I was taking Cat's Claw for Tendinitis (I hadn't been diagnosed with LD yet).  When I had my first CD-57 it was 76 (Cat's Claw is suppose to raise your CD-57).  I just had another CD-57 done after treatment and it was 34.  I think the Cat's Claw was responsible for raising my CD-57 back then.
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
