Re: Is this an autoimmunde disorder?? Please help!!

If you are losing weight and had ketones in urine, please be sure a blood glucose (sugar) has been checked to rule out diabetes. I would get a copy of all your labs thus far so you know exactly what tests have been done. You need not have a family history of AI disease to have one, but vitiligo is AI.The thyroid tests you need are the ones mentioned above. They are not part of a routine blood work-up, they are ordered specifically when thyroid problems are suspected.
