Christianmom Posted January 6, 2011 Report Share Posted January 6, 2011 I have been going to Dr. T for 2 months now for my DS. Lots of blood work was done and DS was found to be healthy except for a high AS0 (240), DNase (316), and streptozyme (100). Was diagnosed with PANDAS and has been on augmentin xr, biaxin, and omnicef. He was given a 5-day prednisone burst with 2 days of 80% improvement. Recently DS was on a 30-day prednisone taper with no change. Dr. T ordered new blood work (guessing that the strep had become resistant to the antibiotic and was therefore active again). The results were: mycoplasma 105, ASO 170, DNase 340, streptozyme 200 with everything else negative. I have an appoint on Friday and he wants to talk about these results and about possibly getting a Cunningham test. I don't mind getting the Cunningham test, but won't the results be inaccurate since he has been on so much prednisone and antibiotics? Also, does anyone have any idea why the 30-day prednisone taper didn't work when the 5-day burst did? Even if the strep was still active, shouldn't DS have gotten relief with the 30-days prednisone taper? Thank you. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
