Thanks Patty for the response.
Actually, i went to the doctor for just a simple check up. Nothing in particular.
I had normal blood work done and my liver test came our abnormal (ALT). It was kinda high. So, when I called the office to get the results, she told me that it was high and wanted to see me again to run more tests. At this point she ran a bunch of things which included the ANA test.
When I called, she told me about it and informed me about Autoimmune Disease, etc. I went in to see her and she asked me questions about any possible symptoms. Everything was no. I mentioned the Zantrex use and being cold and usually having a low body temperature (97.6 is my usual temp).
I went back in and had more tests and one was for Lupus. She called me and told me that all was negative and that we would just continue to monitor it. That's when she informed me about her colleague who had a high ANA like mine (1:640).
Question...if your antibodies are the "team" that is supposed to be fighting bacteria and viruses and normally you strengthen your immune system by being healthy, taking vitamin C, etc...doesn't this negatively affect you if you have Lupus/AI, because you are strengthening the team that ultimately is hurting you?
Trying to figure this whole thing out.
