... Has he run specific antibody tests beyond the general ANA yet? ... (11 replies)
... I just got the results of my third ANA test back this week. ... (11 replies)
... Hi ljs, I ,too, had some abnormal liver results although I don't have a definitive Dx of lupus. It seems I have a "fatty " liver which indicated to my gp that I consumed high amounts of alcohol. I may have a few drinks once a year. LOL As for the "cytoplasmic fluoresecence": cytoplasm is the stuff inside cells and fluoresecence means capable of producing light under some... (11 replies)

... And talk of that gp reminded me also that he was the one who was discussing the positive ANA with me and he said it in a way that it was fairly certain I had lupus developing. ... (11 replies)
... I think I've figured out what is meant finally. I did lots of searching and eventually found a description of ANA patterns where it mentions cytoplasmic patterns, which must be what is being described. ... (11 replies)
... Btw, the dr I saw this week didn't seem to feel ANA would be so high with just thyroid...she just didn't seem interested in further investigations. ... (11 replies)
... Ro, but I don't think my ANA ever turned positive. The Dx was the lupus "subset" called SCLE. ... (11 replies)
... more tests. I asked if the thyroid problem could cause the high ANA...she said possibly it could. Anyway, she ordered glucose tolerance test, thyroid antibodies, ANA and anti ds DNA. ... (11 replies)
... r around 25 years now, so over the last few years when I began getting symptomatic I've had my GP run test to make sure I didn't have it. Every time he's run an ANA on me, and it's be 5 times since '02, it's come back negative, no number just negative. ... (5 replies)
... Hi yesmetoo. I feel like I have a better understanding of this cf stuff now. I won't know reasons until I have further tests, if they happen to illuminate anything. Btw, I read somewhere online that something like 20% of adults have fatty liver at some point. I think it said this is currently due to so many being overweight. Hi VeeJ. You are probably right about the young... (11 replies)
... Not to get too chicken and egg on you ljs, but thyroid also causes weight problems, in my case an extra 12 kilos that would not budge despite a healthy diet. That too, is history once I started thyroid medication. (11 replies)
... Hi, ljs. You mentioned your youthful dr. & your concern that he didn't have years of experience in autoimmunes. Maybe that's an advantage sometimes? My "old-guard" drs. missed nearly every salient point. In contrast, I just saw a young (early 30's) dermie a few weeks back on an unrelated matter. On the basis of my medical history & description of the rashes I USED to get,... (11 replies)
... I just wanted to mention to you that I had some liver results out of whack prior to starting my thyroid medication. It really upset me (you know, when the doctor looks at you sideways and says "HOW much alcohol did you say you drink?"). It worried because I knew alcohol wasn't a factor and thought maybe that meant something really serious was going on. BUT after a few... (11 replies)
