    No idea but here's a link to a site where some cytokines are explained (in relation to Lyme disease).
    IL-1B seems to have an impact on adrenal function.

    I also have slightly elevated IL-10 and that as far as I understand may be due to a raised Th2 response, which Lyme can induce to allow the bug to invade the body.
