  • Yes, it is isn't it...we've been following her since the lupus diagnosis...hoping she'd help more to raise public awareness of lupus....now she's doing this AND helping to fund research πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸ

  • Hi Barnclown I've been looking for your response to me regarding bloods taken on Wednesday but couldn't find it - you asked me to get back to you.

    I looked them up on line :

    Rheumatoid factor level 1gG -

    result and normal Range are N/A

    ...................................................................

    ESR level on 2nd June 2016 were -

    result 14mm/h

    Normal range is 1-30mm/h

    ....................................................................

    ESR level 15th March 2017 were

    result 21mm/h

    normal Range is 1-30mm/h

    .....................................................................

    Plasma C reactive protein level

    result 19mg/L *

    normal Range this doesn't give a normal Range.

    ......................................................................

    Telephoned surgery I was told to have Plasma C reactive protein level done in another two weeks but nothing has been said about ESR level which has risen.

    Hope you don't mind my asking for your help. Thank you 😘😘

  • Hello toolie

    Sounds as if your surgery is thinking the PCreactive protein is the main concern. Once that test is repeated, do see your gp and ask him/her to explain these results including the increased ESR. And when you see Rheumatology ask again.

    I'm not expert at interpreting these particular results: my significant blood results tend to be to do with other blood elements' levels.

    Possibly others here can help more, so maybe put this into a post of your own? That way lots of us will see your question

  • Yeah that's my thinking too - I am not under a rheumatologist so can't ask them🀣 Just the doc and I will ask for a phone consult with her once I've had bloods back.

    Thanks for your post back to me and will put a general post up - I thought as people tend to read posts they'd pick up my post to you and respond. Take care have a good weekend. πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—
