A high IgM titer represents active Lyme. Band 23 is specific to Lyme, which strongly suggests Lyme. CD57 is low, therefore suggestive also of Lyme. WA1 is high, also, meaning I think Babesia...

Low Vitamin D suggests you should be supplementing Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol).

Strongly recommend you show these results to a Lyme-Literate Physician or Naturopath...they can help you understand the significance of these results and recommend treatment options.

Usually, either mepron or malarone are given to treat Babesia.

I noticed that your cortisol is high...was this an AM plasma cortisol?
You have to be careful because you can have a normal or high AM plasma cortisol level and then it can be low noon and PM.  You might want to ask for a 24 hour saliva or urine cortisol test.  this will give you a better picture of what your levels are all day.  If the cortisol level is high all day then you want to think about tumors that affect adrenals. 
Also have you had your ACTH tested?
