I tested positive for this strain. Was curious if anyone else has and their treatment?

I was just talking w/my LLMd about Babesia Duncani (WA1) because suddenly after 4 years of treatment (of Lyme and Bart) out of nowhere I had a questionable babesia test result.

Some people say this strain is harder to treat the Microti, but he said there is no difference in treatment and one is no harder than the other to treat.

Treatment is the same as Babesia Microti - which is with Zithromycin (or Biaxin) WITH Mepron or Malarone. It is good to add Artemisinin into treatment too. Treatment should be at least 4 months or until symptom free.

I was worried about the harder to treat thing. I was told that this is one of the factor that has been hindering my ability to move forward. I kind of have been stuck with some strange symptoms. I am pretty worried that I was pregnant when I had this. It is hard to figure out when I was infected b/c I have been chronically ill most of my adult life due to Crohn's. My daughter is asymptomatic with the exception of night sweats.

I also was concerned about it being harder to treat that is why I asked right away. I consider myself fairly asymptomatic except for night sweats now and then, which I have had for years and always thought was hormonal. It likely could be the reason I am not moving forward too.

Your daughter should be tested. I have found most mom's with lyme/co-infections have kids who have it too. I hate saying that, but it is better to know and to treat it when they are young, kids get well. My son had Ld at 7 and 17. Both times he got well. At age 7 he was probably undertreated so I believe that is what caused a relapse ten years later. I have no idea if I passed it to him or if we were each bitten. I didn't get sick until 4 years ago when he was 16...he actually got sick first.

I was only tested for Microti, tested negative, and made my greatest progress on Mepron/Zith (though I may have accidentally been taking double doses, still not sure).
