  • Have you ever had an EBV infection? Epstein-Barr Virus causes mono which, in many cases, seems to significantly lower a person's immune system. A friend of mine had it as a child and it took him a DECADE for his body to start functioning normally again- he was sick every other week with something or other. Have the doctor check for EBV antibodies just to play it safe. EBV can also cause a condition known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. You mention surgery- what kind of surgery was it? If you had an organ transplant, for example, you are on immunosuppresants which keep your immune system "injured" to prevent organ rejection. Diet is extremely important- make sure you eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, and consult your doctor about adding a multivitamin like Centrium to your diet. Exercise is also good for the body and boosts the immune system. Taking too many antibiotics for infections can, in fact, weaken the immune system because the medications kill EVERYTHING, not just the bad bacteria. You may have an inflamatory bowel condition which is preventing nutrients from being absorbed adequately. Have a complete blood panel done to check for any kind of major abnormalities.
