Id appreciate any feedback on the cd57 and if anything else can cause it to be low

because Im reading it all points to lyme and co-s but then I read from Dr shoemaker that it can mean mold exposure

Like yourself, I hear that Lyme and mold are the two primary culprits. There were some people who said HIV, but it turns out that there's research that shows HIV actually causes "an expansion of CD-57 cells."

Unless of course, you have HIV2, but there's been less than 20 reported cases of that in the US, so highly, highly unlikely.

I'd say if you've got a low CD-57, you definitely have spirochettes, and you may have mold exposure. Interestingly enough, Lyme and mold exposure can cause remarkably similar symptoms.

If you think mold might be your problem, try taking chlorella- it will help that dramatically and clear it from your system.

HIV is associated with a below 60, CD57 because of the fact that a person with HIV has reactivated HHV-6. So it's the HHV-6 that lowers the CD57 level, not the HIV. "HTLV-1 & 2, HIV-2, mold exposure & sever, renal failure are also associated with below 60, CD57 levels. That is all that I am aware of, IDK, there might be more?

guys, is it safe to day HIV is not a possibility then with low cd57? I mean

hhv 6 is what makes it low with HIV

Honestly I heard of hhv 6 but dont know what it is exactly.

how would I for sure know if mold exposure was really behind all thats ailing me?

i do have sensitivity to antiobiotics.Maybe this is why

The HIV virus kills the T-Cells & HHV-6 kills the NK-Cells. HIV can not do it's job & kill the T-cells unless HHV-6 kills the NK cells 1st. The 2 work side by side together.

Regardless, if you think you only have LD or not, I would still get tested for HHV-6/HIV/HTLV-1 & 2, just to be on the safe side. Most insurances will cover the testing.

FYI: HHV-6 is reactivated Roseola
