Hi, I wonder if anyone can help?
My GP recently ran blood tests to look into my ongoing issues of tiredness, headaches, skin rashes etc, as per my previous posts. ANA and RF came back normal but lupus anticoagulant came back ‘weakly positive’. I am aged 45 with no history of clots, but my GP referred me to rheumatology as they weren’t sure of the significance of this.
When I saw the rheumatologist he said he didnt know why had run that test anyway and said it doesn’t need to be repeated as it was only weakly positive. Is this correct? I thought it was standard to repeat it after 12 weeks? Or should I just accept what the rheum has told me.
Thanks in advance!
