    Re: Lupus or what?

    TinaV,
    Thanks for your reply.......I am being treated with meds for SS but haven't been diagnosed "officially" with it. But with all the other symptoms I was wondering if Lupus was a possibility. Especially with the aching and swelling in my joints and the ulcers in my nose. I have been diagnosed with autoimmune hemolytic anemia but I don't think that is causing the aches and my nose ulcers one of which I've had for six months and can't get it to clear up. Thanks for the help. Lisa

    TinaV - The first time they were elevated I wasn't taking medication and they aren't elevated all of the time. I have read in Dr. Wallace's book that they can be elevated due to medication, alcoholism or even lupus itself. And I'm with you, I don't drink much either; it tends to make me feel ill even just one drink. I've not heard of the Transp...enzyme. The only thing that I know of that's been elevated for me is the ALT & AST.

    I think it's simply called "The Lupus Book" by Dr. Daniel J. Wallace. It has been very helpful for me.
