Hi guys just wondering what it means if you have a LUPUS anti coagulant test done and what the results would show? i know i have had more than this done (they took sooo much blood) but this one sounds really important.
thanx

Hi :)

The lupus anti-coagulant test is one of the tests that can check for APS (otherwise called Hughe's syndrome or sticky blood). It is important in that around 30% of lupus patients may also have APS. It is usually quite easily treated but the symptoms can be relatively severe if it is left untreated.

Many people here take one baby aspirin a day for APS and that is sufficient to keep things balanced.
