I got a call from my rheumy yesterday. She says I have AAT deficiency...and I need to see a pulmonary specialist and a hematologist. I have been having loss of appetite, weight loss and just thought it's lupus or Sjogren's related. Can't tell anymore what's causing what. But I guess AAT is inherited...but I still have to ask is this lupus or Sjogren's related? The symptoms are so close. And autoimmune effects the liver and lungs as well...I'm confused. Does this mean I'm adding another illness to this list of mine? My goodness
