Could a few people please help me interpret my test results?

    Hi Everyone, this is my first post :)

    I'd like to know which band represents what and what the specific positives and negatives mean, but I can't seem to find any websites or anything that can help. Anyone want to offer any insight?

    IGG- Result Positive
    18 kDa -
    22 kDa -
    23-25 kDa -
    28 kDa -
    30 kDa -
    31 kDa IND
    34 kDa IND
    39 kDa ++
    41 kDa +++
    45 kDa +
    58 kDa -
    66 kDa -
    73 kDa -
    83-93 kDa

    And then the IGM (what IS the IGM?) came up negative.
    The only positive was band 58 (What IS band 58?).

    OH and before I CD 57 was 44.

    Thanks everyone, hope you all are well!

    9 cross-reactive for Borrellia
    12 specific for Bb
    18 specific for Bb
    20 cross-reactive for Borrellia
    21 unknown
    22 specific for Bb, probably really the 23/25 band
    23-25 outer surface protein C (OspC), specific for Bb
    28 unknown
    30 unknown; probably an outer surface protein; common in European and
    one California strain
    31 outer surface protein A (OspA), specific for Bb
    34 outer surface protein B (OspB); specific for Bb
    35 specific for Bb
    37 specific for Bb
    38 cross-reactive for Bb
    39 is a major protein of Bb flagellin; specific for Bb
    41 flagellin protein of all spirochetes; this is usually the first to appear after a Bb infection and is specific for all Borrellia
    45 cross-reactive for all Borellia (sometimes people with Lyme who have
    this band positive also have the co-infection Ehrlichiosis)
    50 cross-reactive for all Borrellia
    55 cross-reactive for all Borrellia
    57 cross-reactive for all Borrellia
    58 unknown but may be a heat-shock Bb protein
    60 cross reactive for all Borrellia
    66 cross-reactive for all Borrelia, common in all bacteria
    83 specific antigen for the Lyme bacterium, probably a cytoplasmic membrane
    93 unknown, probably the same protein in band 83, just migrates differently in some patients

    Your CD57 is very low too. Welcome to the Die Lyme Die Club! This is what we call our little club here. There is some good information here on this board.

    Do you have an LLMD to treat you? I wish you well in your treatment. Many of us are getting better, but it's not been easy!!
