Just because your labs are normal, or close to normal, that does NOT mean you don't have Lupus. This is a mistake Drs who are NOT rheumatologists and are NOT experts on Lupus tend to make. Lupus is diagnosed BY SYMPTOMS.
I can't stress this enough. Anyone who wants to question your diagnosis because of labs doesn't know what they are talking about
And because your labs are normal, that doesn't mean your disease is "under control" either!
