Hi there,
Do any of you out here have a low CD57 but feel great?
My Dr thinks that I no longer have Lyme and that I have a bioflim and has put me on a vegan low-fat diet. I have been on the diet for a month and have felt great. My tremors are gone, stomach pain gone, fatigue gone. I had him do a CD57 to see what my levels were and they are 46. He does not use this test as a diagnostic test in his practice. He is doing a repeat WB and PCR to see what they say--my last one was negative--two before that were positive. I just wanted to find out if it's possible to have a low CD57 and feel so good??
Thank you in advance for your answers!!

i think you just could have some candida and thats why the diet is helping with your symptoms. and yeah.. here are some ppl who feel good with a low cd57, if your cd57 is high, it doesnt mean that you feeling good, mine is about 200-390 and im not feeling good.

I stopped abxs about 1 year ago when I felt back to 100% after 2 years of different abx combos.

I had my annual physical last month, and my CD57 was 42, which is the lowest it has ever been. However, I still feel pretty good.

It may just be that LD and/or bart permanently lower the CD57 levels of some people.

I was on low fat vegan diet for the last 6 weeks, just stopped a couple days ago. I do believe it helped a lot. I herxed quite terribly two days in, had to back off for a couple days and go back into it slowly.

I was just tested two weeks ago and failed again with a score of something like 70, where it has been hovering for months.

The score has tracked, with ups and downs, fairly well, so I thought it was very telling for me. But to be at this point of health and what treatments I've done and still to fail, I'm not so sure anymore. I do still need some occasional herbs, so I know I am still battling. Maybe I'm just not there yet, but starting to wonder if maybe the score will not return ... but perhaps that really will still mean I am not at regular health ...

Some feel that below 60 indicates mycoplasma.
