Could Lyme disease cause high lymphocyte count in small intestine and food intolerances?

Could Lyme disease cause high lymphocyte count in small intestine and food intolerances?

No: I'm confident here. Lyme disease is both a real entity and a "pop" / "fad" diagnosis. There are normally a lot of lymphocytes in the small intestinal mucosa, though having a lot in the epithelium itself is more suggestive of gluten enteropathy or a few other entities. If you've got lab support for your gluten allergy (which also has "pop" proponents), this is your explanation instead. ...Read more

Low cd57 and Lyme disease related?

Low cd57 and Lyme disease related?

In some cases but...: Noted lyme specialist raphael stricker discovered that many lyme patients have a low cd57 count (this is a subset of a type of white blood cell called natural killer cells) and that the level often increases as patents improve. However, not all lyme patients have low cd57 counts. A low cd57 may be supportive of a lyme diagnosis but a high level in no way rules it out. See my comment for more info:. ...Read more

I have been diagnosis with Lyme disease but my doctor thinks my hip pain is unrelated because my sed rate is zero and CRP is also low. Does this make sense?

Yes: Yes, it makes sense. Don't fall into the trap of blaming every ache and pain on lyme. I would try taking a yoga class since you are so young. With that said, medicine does not have a lot of absolutes and if the pain progressed over months, I would proceed to an mri. ...Read more

My husband has elevated liver enzymes and an enlarged spleen. He was bitten by a tick about 4 yrs ago and was treated for Lyme disease with a zpack.?

My husband has elevated liver enzymes and an enlarged spleen. He was bitten by a tick about 4 yrs ago and was treated for Lyme disease with a zpack.?

Needs evaluation: Not all tick bites cause lyme, but if he got lyme a z-pak is not adequate treatment so he likely has chronic lyme. Ticks can also transmit babesia, bartonella, rickettsia & other serious infections. These might be causing his problems & his problems might be unrelated to the bite. He needs a thorough medical evaluation including a doc knowledgeable about lyme & co-infections. See www. Ilads. Org. ...Read more

Let me help: A small, red bump may appear at the site of the tick bite. This small bump is normal after a tick bite and doesn't indicate lyme disease. However, over the next few days, the redness may expand forming a rash in a bull's-eye pattern, with a red outer ring surrounding a clear area. ...Read more
