Ok, here's my lab work. Now, my doc is kind of wacko...I posted before about how she is taking her sweet time to get me into a specialist, ''thinks'' I've got lupus, and is pushing the anti malarias on me WITHOUT confirmation of diagnosis.
Anyway, I don't think she took enough testing to give any sort of diagnosis, to me...these results could be what they are due to Hashi's, which I do have says my most recent saliva testing...
ANA Positive (thats all it says)
Anti Nuclear Titer 160 dils (what's this mean? dils...does it stand for something im not catching..thats all it says, I thought they were written differently.)
Anti DNA(DS) Negative
RA screen Negative
C Reactive Protein 0.032mg/dl ( with no reference range)
These are the worst results I've ever tried to make sense of...Normally I get reference ranges with them, these have none.
Also, my potassium came back slightly low and she blows it off.
I've noticed low magnesium through a doc whom checked it RBC, low calcium once through an ER visit for arm pains and now twice slightly low potassium through ER results.
Is it possible to have all these levels low? I thought with low mag, you had high calcium, and so forth? SHould I supplement them all at once, or start slow with magnesium, adding potassium, then calcium once the magnesium starts absorbing to avoid my heart going nuts?
Deficiencies!!! This is what docs should look for, ya know? Can't low mag, calc, and potassium cause MANY lupus symptoms..namely the muscle pains..
THanks a ton, fill me in, I appreciate it.
If it werent for these kind of forums, patients would never take their health into their own hands, and many would go undiagnosed for years, or improperly cared for.
