Cpn Diagnosis (I think!)
Well after 20 years of searching for a diagnosis for Chronic fatigue and digestive issues, I think I finally discovered I have Cpn (and maybe Lyme disease and it seems another type of pnuemonia too). But I would like to learn more about the tests and be sure that I actually have Cpn. These are my lab results:
Chlaydia pneumoniae IgG: Result - 1:256 (critical abnormal) Ref range - <1:16
Chlaydia pneumoniae IgM: Result - <1:10 (Normal) Ref range - <1:10
Chlaydia pneumoniae IgA: Result - <1:16 (Normal) Ref range - <1:16
Is it normal for both the IgM and the IgA to be negative? Many people on the thread:
seem to have high IgA and IgG. My IgG seems a lot higher than the reference, but lower than others report.
The doctor I saw was very thorough and I had a bewildering array of other tests:
Lyme IgG/IgM Western Blot
Genetic tests for the C677T and the A1298C mutations
Chlamydia species tests
Babesia Microti IgG/IgM
Borella hermsi IgG/IgM
Mycoplasma pneumonia IgG/IgM
Maybe this list of tests will be helpful for someone else.
I was really ill over Christmas and spent a lot of time looking through this site as I was really desperate. There is a lot of really helpful info here - I am grateful for everyone who shares that. I got quite a bit better by going on a ketogenic diet. I put a post together that explains what helped me, in case it is helpful for someone else. It is at:
