Re: Worried and need your help in diagnosis

you don't mention your lab reference range for the tests in which you gave results. That gives meaning to your values. For instance, my crp at last test was 10 with a reference range of 0 to 10. That is a high normal value but still good. And is your ANA results in the form of a titre as in 1:160 or is it just 160? plus did they give you a pattern? As to the augmentin, it would be more the actual infection that might affect your CRP or sed rate than the drug as part of the bodies defense mechanism and may result in a temporary rise in those values. Autoimmune diseases are usually bilateral in that they cause symptoms on both the right and left side. If some sort of arthritis process is suspected, it might well be osteoarthritis, which is far more common than RA, or some other process associated with your diabetes, perhaps.
