"ACE Chlamydia levels" -- anyone heard of it?
My niece took a fistful of papers to her doctor because she has rosacea, chronic bronchitis/asthma, chronic sinusitis, and what looks to me like GFA. I highlighted the appropriate passages.
- never looked at them,
- explained that chlamydia is known to cause uterine and vaginal problems,
- said he'd heard of CPn, but that it had been too long for that to be her problem (I think he meant she's past the acute stage),
- said if she's worried about her rosacea, she needs to see a skin doctor,
- and generally made it quite plain that in this area of medicine, he knows not that he knows not, and likes it that way, thanks.
Anyway, she says he ordered an "ACE Chlamydia Level" test on one gram of blood. Anyone know what that is about?
