LNN Posted October 6, 2011 Report Share Posted October 6, 2011 To your question about if anyone had their kids come back negative on both - my answer is no. My son had elevated C4a, my daughter had elevated C3a. Both have elevated C3d - which confirms, in my mind, that their issues are infection driven. I think the fact the your son came back so low on both is important. You may look back later, once you've discovered more, and see that is was a clue. So I wouldn't forget it. But I also wouldn't use it as a confirmation that your son doesn't have a lyme or mold issue. If there were one test that could rule lyme in or out, we wouldn't have all the controversy. I don't recall your son's Igenex results. If they were only mildly suggestive, this seems to indicate you may need to keep looking for clues and maybe other or additional culprits for his OCD. If they were highly suggestive, I'd put less stock in the C3a/C4a results. I think you need to put every test in context with the results of the others, as well as response or non-response to particular treatments. Your son's reactions to treatments are far more telling than the experiences of anyone else's kids or the results of any single test. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
