Your quest for answers is a good thing.
The results of your blood work need to be compared to the numbers on YOUR lab sheet. Each lab has a slightly different "normal" range and that range is posted with each lab result.
Labtestsonline.org is a good place to get info about
labs, but you won't likely see the range of normal. Some of these anti-body tests can be whacko one day and not so bad the next. They don't always indicate degree of symptoms either. Very frustrating. But, because you have the positive anti-bodies, you will have a head-start learning about
Sjogrens so you could recognize the symptoms. Actually, the symptoms sneak up on you sometimes and the patient doesn't even realize they are dry until it becomes painful. Make sure to keep all of your dental hygiene appointments because dry mouth can cause tooth loss before you are aware there is an issue.
Hopefully someone more knowledgeable about
Sjogrens will see this post and give you more info.
