Just got my results for my CD 57 panel. The number is 16 normal range is 60. Has anyone else had this test? And what can I do to get my immune markers back up.

Cd-4 I've heard this is a better indicator

katie, the CD-57 is not well regarded by everyone. Some say that it's not reliable.

Personally, I think that the CD-57 is still a good lyme-specific marker.

When co-infections are heavily involved in the illness, then results seem to be skewed.

Mine has been consistently low and I suspect lyme to be my main issue.

The only thing I've seen loosely purported to raise CD-57 counts is Rice Bran Arabinoxylan Compound (RBAC) also known as BRM-4 and MGN-3.

See my previous posts.

I guess a better question for you now is: how are you feeling?

He no longer uses the CD57 test. Some of his sickest patients had high numbers and some of his best patients had low numbers. Not a reliable marker.
