  1. Last check(last fall sometime) my b12 and folate were fine. He did check my iron and it was fine. My potassium is technically normal, but lower than my cardio wants(I'm on q med that depletes it). Last time I had a full and extensive panel run was years and years ago. I recall my copper being high...
  2. No anti-sm(lupus)? Yes, anti dsDNA is for SLE(lupus). No ENA panel,anti-RNP, anti-SS-A, anti-SS-B, anti histone, scl-70, etc? I'd ask for a referral, if you feel that there is something going on. I think that would be a logical step because of the positive ANA and lack of investigation. 1:640 is...
  3. My MCH is always high too. Have some other oddities but doc always say labs are great as well. I dont think they ever really bother with the MCH. I'm also in testing and showed negative on the same ones you did. My IGA is fine though. As far as the other tests, maybe your girls GI can order or you...
  4. Blood work in so far- Tissue Transglutaminase IgA Ab 7/18/17 <2 U/mL Comment: Negative 0 - 3 Weak Positive 4 - 10 Positive >10 Tissue Transglutaminase IgG Ab Reference...
  5. Have you not been sent to rheumatology to further investigate the positive ANA? A positive ANA alone can't diagnose anything but it does warrant further investigation and more blood work, ie lupus, RA, scleroderma, etc depending on symptomology. There is also an anemia of chronic disease which...
  6. I do not partake in alcohol so that is not a factor. I will add that 5 years ago I had a MRI of my hip which revealed an incidental finding. I was rushed over to oncology to rule out cancer in my femur. I had a MRI 6 months later which revealed a stable area in my bone marrow. In the end the oncologist...
  7. Just to keep this going in case someone later on is in a similar situation- I did my bloodwork today. I don't have all of it back yet of course but do have some. My RBC is normal for the first time in over 13 years. It's the lowest number that normal can be on the ref range. My transferitin...
  8. I read that. I'm going to do the blood work tomorrow, but will keep my current diet(what little there is) until all is said and done. Just in case.
  9. Yes to the sleep. I was diagnosed with idiopathic hypersomnia after a sleep study with a MSLT. Can't do energy drinks as i have another issue that causes tachycardia. I do not dream, ever. And yes I am diagnised with polyperiphrial neuropathy of unknown origin plus patches of skin that has no feeling...
  10. Just got a call from nurse. Dr will do blood work. Anemia panel, CBC, and Celiac Panel, Antigliadin Abs, and Human ttg. That's what in my file as ordered. Will go tomorrow to do those. Are those the right ones? No idea what celiac panel means, just what's listed in there.
  11. Thanks. He noticed the flattened mucosa during my colonoscopy so that's why he decided to check. I had a EGD two years ago but no biopsies for that.
  12. So never had blood tests. Did a repeat(5 yr) colonoscopy after polyps were found on previous colonoscopy(rectal bleeding due to fissure, 8 colon polyps non cancerous, ulcer and few other things). One biopsy taken of terminal ileum due to flattened mucosa. This one showed melanosis coli(rarely take...
  13. Thanks. I'll call on Monday. Dr said 2 weeks before results of mine, so maybe this Friday but might be next Monday before I hear any results. Going to try her pedi first, but if denied will try my GI.
  14. I was already having a colonoscopy for other reasons. Had polyps before so was on a 5 yr repeat. Dr saw something in terminal ileum and took biopsies.
