Mine is positive atypical discrete speckled pattern >1280.
You should do research on your result before seeing the doc. It can mean somethi g or nothing.
Man I wrote a detailed text and the connection dropped. The forum tool didn't save the content
Well, basically I was saying that I researched and found that 1:80, with the speckled pattern doesn't have much significance in almost all cases. And that 20% of people wihtout any disease have it positive up to 1/80. And that I got tested for many things, including Iga, Ige, Igg, Igm, complements, specific allergies, VHS, many inflammatory markers (one specific for arthritis). I don't have the results for Iga yet, but all of the others are ok, except Ige, that's tremendously high. But being very allergic since I was a kid and having allergy to mites explains why the Ige came at 1113.
I also told I was worrying about
CVID, but normal Igg and Igm, along with anti HBS for HBV present, the fact that I never had any lung diseases or otitis and that my son showed up with Coxsackie, and I did not get infected, means no CVID. I also can't forget that I have HPV and it never really "exploded". No warts, just subclinical very small lesions. That's evidence enough for me. If it wasn't, my pneumologist also told me to relax, after seeing my chest x-ray and the total absence of any symptons. I was also afraid of Lupus (I kinda still am), since my immunologist told me he would search for immunodeficiency and hyper immunity. But I have no symptons and no signs and my GI told me that this 1/80 could mean any inflammatory process happening and that it was surely my colitis (which makes sense, since it's auto immune). My immunologist says he wants to see all my tests to make sure my colitis is really auto imunne (he's a very experienced doctor. GI is very experienced too). As my GI is a very old man, with wide experience in many areas, he told me I shouldn't worry about
Lupus. I wanna hear the immunologist will say though.
After I told my GI that I followed his diet and that all my symptons went away he accepted to try and see how the bowel will behave in next few months. He was ok about
that because all of the inflammatory markers were very low and I am feeling ok. Let's see how it goes. I hope it works well in my case and changes that active instance. In my point of view, that'd be a cure (even though it's not really that).
You don't have lupus, do you?
