So i recently tested my th1/th2/th17 Balance

And It went Like:
Th1 771
Th2 52
Th17 69 (No reference values IT seems)

But:
Th1/th2 14.83 (ref 0.8-1.2)

Indicating my th1 system is horrificly active. What to do about this? I read ME/CFS is Most likely a th2 Shift. Does that mean i May Not have CFS? I am confused. Please Help me Interpret this.

let me guess, you barely ever get sick? but when you feel like a bit remission you get sick?
you didnt get corona or it was just a 2-3 day thing?

i have the same effect, for me i get better when sick. but corona i only had 1 bad day. and anothe 5-6 mild cold symptoms.

i recently read a paper that infection upregulates glyco pathways, making more use of sugar which is required for immune system. that kinda could have a effect for the energy producing system to. but i guess its a pathway the body doesnt want to keep up prolonged.

Did you find anything useful? I found that Doxycyclin once Made my Symptoms decrease but it wasnt reproducable. Apperently Doxycyclin and minocycline are antibiotics that are Not only antibiotic but also inhibit inflammatory pathways mainly of th1.

So maybe the effect came from there
