I had a natural killer cell function assay in December and it was 09 (normal range 8-170 LU). This was done at Quest.
He suggested taking a type of transfer factor, however, due to the expense, I declined.
I don't feel any worse because my killer cell function test is as low as it is, and in speaking to another LLMD, it takes a number of reasons why a person's immune system could cause them problems. He didn't seem too concerned, as all my blood work comes back normal and after 18 months of abx and having been off all abx for over 2 years, I feel almost normal...at least this is my new normal by which I function good on a daily basis, for which I am grateful.
Personally, I don't feel only this one test can determine how you are doing...how you are feeling, etc.
I could be all wrong, but it is just my own opinion.

Thanks, everyone, for all your help and wisdom, as always.
lyme ed, cant knew the official name -- cd57; Marian described it well. I was told that the range was from 1 to 300-something with normal, as Marian said, around 150. That makes numbers like cant and I have pretty low.
Marian, thanks for the suggestions about the resishi mushrooms. I think I'd started taking something with them but stopped for some reason (probably money).
lifeline, what you said makes sense to me, too, because I actually feel better than I have in a year...yet the count is worse.
My LLMD didn't seem to have answers, only to say that it was still an indication of Lyme still in me. As good as I feel, I have no doubt that's true.
