C4a and C3a are "complements" tests.
We've had a few posts on these the last 4-5 years.
C4a when elevated means there is something going on, but pretty hard to pinpoint and there are mixed theories on what they mean. It does not mean mold or lyme for certain, and there are many ideas as to what can set these off.
My C4a was 55,000 at its highest tested (that's right) about
one year after lyme ABX, but shortly after treating Candida again. Then it lowered to 1400's from Paleo diet alone in three months. Figure that one out.
Had initial lyme symptoms late 80's, then again and with bullseye early 90's. Ended ABX for Lyme in Jan 2016. Flares ended after. Rebuilding / fine tuning / fixing muscles since then; member "10 Percenters Lyme Club" (90% healed). Twenty years of Hashimoto adds to the enjoyment. New project: improving protein, immunoglobulins through better nutrition via gut health.
