C3a is normal
Cd57/cd8 absolute: 68
Cd57/cd3/cd8 absolute:45
Nevasive on Western blot

Can anything elevate C4a (other than mold) Is this chronic lyme?

Also positive for ebv, parvovirus, hhv6, mycoplasma, chlamydia, and Coxsackie. Can these viruses elevate C4a this high?
Thanks for any info.

hi @Clerner. some say that high C4a and normal C3a means Lyme but I think it just means chronic infection with something or a number of things.

if I were you, I would send away for the LTT ESLIPOT test for Borrelia from Armin Labs to check to see if Lyme is a factor.

Thanks, good advice. I will look into that. So, the western blot still can be false negative?
well...I can tell you that I had every test imaginable for years in the USA..Including the Igenex panel, which they say is NEVER false negative and possibly false positive....but I was negative on every single test...until I had the ELISPOT
