I have written before and pushed to have my follow up visit with the Rheumy in a week or so...
Here is a question that I am not finding clarity on:
Can a high ANA value as 1:1280 (this time, less last month), homogeneous (where value 1:40 as negative and below) ever be as a result of my already diagnosed hashimoto's thyroiditis? I see in many places that it could be, but not such a high value.
I have other indicators of 93 value on DNA Antibody (where 0-9 is negative).
Also is it a concern that my labs show low values for Vitamin D. Is this affecting the almost "lupus" diagnosis. (Doc wrote he thinks it is lupus on my lab work).
My IgM was 505 (48-271 mg/dL).
Wondering if the thryoiditis could be sending my body into overdrive. Confused!
PS Made an appt with chronologist as well as my throat is very achy, swollen.
