Re: what blood tests should be done to check autoimmune?

There is no one blood test which can check for autoimmune diseases- there are actually thousands of autoimmune diseases possible- MS cannot be checked by Blood work; however blood work is often done, to check for defiencies of things (vitamin defiencies) and to rule out other disesaes. If you start reading up on disorders such as Lupus or Rheumatoid Arthritis, youll see what I mean.
