I don't think so, but a good rheumy should recognize that titres come and go as does the disease activity of AutoImmune diseases. I am pretty sure that plaquenil has a good reputation and drs. know they shouldn't diagnose or UNdiagnose anything based on one normal or abnormal lab report. Fish Oil has alot of good studies to back up it's benefit. I know she just found a rheumy, but is there any chance she could get a second opinion before she stops the plaquenil? If she were my daughter, I'd try and find a rheumy affiliated with a big teaching university with a big rheumatology department.
God knows, even if I don't....
