Hi, everybody. I am new and would like to know opinions on whether this is a serious indicator, and what else I need to look at, if anything.
My SCL-40 tests came back at 1.
I saw another related thread that asked about ANA and Anti-DNA Ab Qn was at 1, RNP and Smith is at less than 0.2.
As far as symptoms, I am experiencing fingers locking, pelvical joint stiffness and low bone density.
I am a male in late 30's.
However, please keep in mind that as a former Cushing's disease patient and type 1 diabetic, I have/have had a bunch of other things happen that messed/mess with my hormones and are also likely to be an underlying reason. For example, the fingers started to lock right after Cushing's ended.
Anyway: should I take seriously? Do I ask for a retest or head to the doctor? Does the borderline thing mean that I am ok for now or is anything above 1.0 reason to conclude I have it? Last, but not least, I have had many tests taken, so if you want to ask about any other bloodwork, please let me know.
