Re: Help with Lab Results
Well, I'm just a patient not a Dr, but the high titre ANA usually indicates that an autoimmune process might be looked at, although it can be caused by many things other than one of the classic AI diseases such as RA or lupus.
RNP antibodies are seen in Mixed Connective Tissue Disease, Lupus, and specific types are associated with Sjogren's.
The Parvovirus is also known as Fifth's disease. I can't remember off hand whether IgG or IgM represents current infection and the other past infection. It is usually a mild childhood disease that many don't even know they have, but I believe that it can be associated with a type of arthritis and also miscarriage, but you really need to consult a physician on that. The arthritis can be treated and miscarriage can also be avoided by treatment as well. I think about half of adults have had this disease, so it is a very common NON-std mainly childhood disease, although adults can get it, too.
Anti−dsDNA Antibodies are associated mostly with lupus.
Of course, symptoms have to be present for any diagnosis of disease to be made.
So a primary Dr. or Rheumatologist might be even better to take a look at these labs and your specific symptoms to rule in or out another AI disease in addition to hypothyroidism. Some patients can have very mild forms of these diseases and run through the spectrum to severe cases.
