Hi guys. Can anyone give me any more information on low C4 levels? Mine have apparently been steadily dropping and are now 0.08. The Rheumatologist has put me on 50mg prednisolene but after being on it a week and a half I'm not noticing much improvement. In the past it has taken a couple of weeks for steroids to kick in so I'm still hoping, but my Rheumatologist wants me to go on Azathioprine next week if there's no improvement. I'd really appreciate any info on reduced C4 levels and being on Azathioprine. I'm obviously reluctant to go on another immunosuppressant drug but if the risks are greater to leave it then I don't have much choice I guess. (My Rheumatologist has not discussed the drug with me but wants me to go on it before I see him. GP was unable to give me any understanding of C4 levels and the implications). Thank you guys x
