    hi

    I got my immune tests back and my cd16 is at 5 and my cd57 is at 50.

    I'm seeing a specialist soon but I've no clue what causing this. I've heard Lyme for a low cd57 but for the cd16 I'm not sure.

    How can I improve it?

    Thanks

    Is it normal that cd57 is low in cfs?
    Or does it just say that you have a chronic infection?
    Because this would be a reason to treat a infection; not a autoimmune cause as supposed....

    Here's a study that found elevated Cd57 expression.

    "Co-expression of CD57 and perforin significantly increased in CFS/ME"

    My cd57 count is 26 and I have no Lyme.
