The drug LDN will increase ABSOLUTE T-Suppressor/Cytotoxic cells.
Awhile back, I took a Flow Cytometry blood test. To be specific, it was called Flow Cytometry, Peripheral blood, ACD T-cell subsets, Acquired Immunodeficiency.
The results showed CD8 T-Suppressor cells in the normal range. However, I was LOW on ABSOLUTE T-Suppressor/Cytotoxic cells. Therefore, I wonder if the low absolute number is the true cause of EC since it's associated with autoimmune disorders.
To investigate it further like a scientist, please ask your doctor to prescribe this blood test to see if you also have a low absolute number of T-Suppressor/Cytotoxic cells. I asked an infectious disease doctor what this meant at the time, but he didn't know. See, I asked him to prescribe a test that he doesn't usually prescribe or know how to interpret. If anyone knows what this result may mean, please explain.
"Suppressor T-Cells (also called T8 or CD8+ cells) suppress the activity of other lymphocytes so they don't destroy normal tissue."
I just read that people with low ABSOLUTE T-Suppressor/Cytotoxic cells may be zinc deficient since zinc helps to build them. Has anyone here taken zinc supplements. I know you need to balance copper with zinc in a supplement. In studies concerning this, zinc helped cut down infections and Antibiotic use.
