Re: Positive ANA AB Titer with Nucleolar Patter??

Boxermama, in post #23, you mentioned alkaline phosphate. Was it high or low, and what might each suggest? You should add to your To Do list.

I know, your list keeps expanding. But that really is the best way to get your arms around this & to sense whether you're getting appropriate medical input. (I didn't ask the right things, I didn't know any better, plus my worst years were mostly pre-internet. You have better avenues now, luckily.)

I've read that the C3 and C4 serum complements can depress in lupus, I'm not sure about MCTD/UCTD, but it kind of feels possible b/c those are "crossover close cousins"? Maybe someone else has insight?

I'm glad you found us. Please keep at it & touch base when you can. Bye, Vee
