Update on Tests

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone and hope you are all doing better than the day before.


My gallbladder is fine so it is not causing more than normal reflux so the medicationss should be working and I believe they are. My labs showed a very low vitamin D level which is probably why my bones have been hurting more and also why the fatigue is showing up again. Will start on 50,000 iu of vitamin D tomorrow and weekly until I see the rheumatologist again at the end of October to check the level again.


Don't know why my rheumatologist didn't check the anticardiolipins like she said she was going to with everything that was going on with my legs. It is not on the lab sheets they gave me and it is not like her to not do that and not tell me. Maybe it is not in yet and I will call next Tuesday to find out if it was done or why it was not done.


Thanks and wish you all well.



A happy heart is good medicine.

Good news on the gall bladder! I'm glad to see that your vitamin D was checked. All of us should have that checked out. Studies have shown a direct relationship to vitamin D deficiency and autoimmune diseases. Dave just post a study on vitamin D and lupus. Here's a link to several studies on Vitamin D, sunshine and Scleroderma. I certainly hope you start feeling better. Please keep us informed.

Thanks Serena and Janey,


From what I have been reading everyone should have their vitamin D levels checked. WOW I am amazed at what they have found out about it. Glad the gallbladder is ok too. Could not make it thru surgery right now, to tired and just feeling uneasy and not ok.


I am glad I found this site.


Thanks again, take care and feel the best you can,
