Hey Debbie!

Did your ANA show a pattern? (speckled, etc) WOW your Sed rate is really up there right now, definitely some sort of inflammatory thing going on! With your symptoms and this blood work it will definitely get you some answers in time. Did that Rheumy call you back?? What a bone head if he didn't. Sheesh!!

The Aldolase test is a muscle enzyme basically, you were right on that one. The test measures the amount of muscle damage (in some rheumatic diseases, damaged muscles release certain enzymes into the blood). These tests also can show how effective medication has been in reducing inflammation that causes muscle damage.

With you, I wouldn't think twice about that one, because your level was only slightly lower than normal. If it was high, the above things that I mentioned would explain it :) Hope this finds you well, I hope that the Rheumy gets his crap together here!! Love ya :)
