... hi again just a quick update, immunologist rang wednesday morning and did explain that given my symptoms the blood results and a strong positive dsdna, in her opinion this was all pointing toward lupus, however as i was referred by rheumi she said it was up to the rheumi to diagnose and she had sent her an urgent fax, as i did not have an appointment until January she advised...

... Your next set of blood tests will be helpful. The photos of your red arms and chest area are significant and should be shown to your Dr. It is possible a skin biopsy with immunofluorescent studies would be helpful for diagnosis. The rashes of lupus are so varied, and sometimes they are only a "blush" of redness or red splotchy spots like on your chest. The immunofluorescent... (6 replies)
... Hi & welcome. Rheumatologists use a set of 11 criteria established by the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) to assess patients for lupus. You may find the criteria in one of the "sticky posts" (permanent info posts) located aright bove the user threads. Generally, but not always, you must meet 4 or more to sustain the diagnosis; but they don't have to be met... (3 replies)
... Welcome KM to the boards. I think we can help you. You do have several symptoms suggestive of lupus, plus two tests that support the diagnosis. 19 is not very high on the dsDNA, and many people with lupus have low numbers like this and do not have kidney involvement. This level fluctuates some, but for reference sake, some people have anti-dsDNA in the 100-400 range when they... (3 replies)

Of course that's all subjective. At first, I didn't see how I could have lupus because I just... (18 replies)
