    Hi everyone,

    I had some tests done with Prof De Meirleir in Belgium some months back. I have now received the results and thought that I would post them here as any thoughts on them would be much appreciated. They are as follows:

    Test Description Result Reference Range

    C4A Serum Level 740 20,00 - 1400,00 ng/ml

    CD57 Absolute Count 29,7 60,00 - 360,00 cells/ul

    Cytomegalovirus 0 0,00 - 50,00

    EBV 0 0,00 - 50,00

    Elastase expression 131 0,00 - 150,00

    HHV6 5,4 0,00 - 50,00

    HHV7 0 0,00 - 50,00

    Perforin mRNA expression 364,5 250,00 - 750,00

    Rnase L Cleavage Assay 0,11 0,00 - 0,50

    IL-10 serum 0 0,00 - 5,00 pg/ml

    IL-12p70 serum 1,57 0,00 - 5,00 pg/ml

    IL-1 beta serum 0,00 0,00 - 3,00 pg/ml

    IL-6 serum 2,45 0,00 - 5,00 pg/ml

    IL-8 serum 37,76 0,00 - 15,00 pg/ml

    MCP1 23,46 0,00 - 165,00 pg/ml

    MIP-1 BETA serum 23,48 0,00 - 155,00 pg/ml

    TGF-BETA1 serum 0,00 0,00 - 290,00 pg/ml

    TNF serum 1,01 0,00 - 6,00 pg/ml

    Prof De Meirleir's footnotes were as follows:

    Presence of anaemia (not microcytic)

    Increased sedimentation rate

    IGFBP3/IGF1 ratio high

    Melisa : normal for nickel and mercury

    Immunobilan : normal

    Immunophenotyping : high % CD8+ T lymphocytes

    CD57+ lymphocytes : low in number

    Cytokines in the serum : increased IL-8

    Urine neurotoxin test : negative

    Faecal microbial analysis : overgrowth with enterococcus, streptococcus, prevotella and eubacterium, undergrowth with bifidobacterium and lactobacillus.

    Anyway sorry about the length of this message, just wanted to get it all in there.

    Take care

    He suggested a diet low in fructose and lactose.

    Also Erythromycin, Clarithromycine, Enterol, Nexavi,r Creon and Hydroxycobalamin.

    Sorry about my first post with the test results, they turned out very squashed together so appreciate they will be very hard to read for some. I did try to edit the msg but it didn't make much difference.

    Take care

    Thanks for this. What did de Meirleir propose to do?

    Prof De Meirleir suggested the treatments I mentioned above. When I went to Belgiun to be honest I was hoping that I would test positive for some infections and would maybe be able to start treatment for these.

    What's weird is that over here in Ireland I tested positive for an active CMV infection but they won't treat that here. I had just presumed that I would test positive for it over there also but I didn't.

    Anyway I'll take the antibiotics he's suggested and see how that goes.

    Hope everyone is doing pretty ok today

    Take care

    This sounds great. The antibiotics to knock down the enterococcus and streptococcus. The Creon to increase bile salts to smoke the Prevotella, the Enterol I suppose is a prebiotics to increase good gut bacteria, the Nexavir for sleep and immune regulation, and the B12 - is that by injection and how much? Did he prescribe any probiotics?

    Please let us know if this helps you.
