Re: Just got test results
Hi, EOliva. I believe anti-Ro is seen in lupus, in Sjogren's syndrome, and serum C2d* deficiency (* one component of immune response); so your dr. presumably will evaluate you for all three. You can find the criteria used for lupus in the sticky posts (permanent info posts) at the top of the thread list. For Sjogren's, I think the most definitive test is a lip biopsy. I don't know how that serum complement deficiency is diagnosed, though---maybe bloodwork?
I had elevated anti-Ro & a raft of chronic problems, and was diagnosed with subacute systemic lupus ("subacute" meaning no major organ involvement). Plaquenil & strict sun avoidance have helped a lot, so here's hoping you likewise get answers & improvement soon! Let us know what happens next, OK? Sending you warm wishes, sincerely, Vee
