New Round of Bloodwork

7 posts in this topic

Saw a Sclero Specialist last week, all the tests except scl-70 are back (how convenient).

 

ANA is now 1:640 Speckled (2 previous tests were 1:160 Homogeneous) Hmmmmmm

 

CRP is now elevated, previously high normal

 

Anti-CCP is now normal, previously elevated

 

AST slightly elevated

 

 

What a crazy disease :)

Received the call this morning from the doctor, how nice to hear from him personally :)

 

Scl-70 is 111, or high, normal is <20

 

My first Scl-70 at a different lab had different ranges, it was high at 8, normal <1, wonder what the difference is, it would be nice to compare apples to apples.

 

He also mentioned that my ANA had 2 patterns, speckled and nucleolar though the nurse originally told me speckled only, he said they ran it twice.

 

Starting Metho in a few weeks, hope it helps.

Hi there,

 

Thanks for posting your results. I was told recently that having labs done at the same place really helps the doctors compare results as time goes on.

 

What kind of Methotrexate have you decided to take, the injection or pill?

Hi kathy,

 

I just wanted to say that my blood work is speckled and nucleolar also. My ana is 1:1280. As of last July I was Scl-70 negative.

 

I have tried the Methotrexate and did not have any results from it. I have heard about a lot of people it has helped. I hope you do well on it.

 

Hugs,

Nina
