I might be having a fog moment, but at my latest visit my doc told me that my C3 & C4 complement levels had improved significantly. I *thought* he said this was because they have been coming down steadily over the past 5 months. But, when I looked it up, low C3and4 are associated with disease activity, not improvement. Maybe I started low and am going up and he just read it to me backwards.
I'm really confused. We use this as one of my primary measures to record my flares and now I'm not sure which way is up or down (pardon the pun!).
Have you experienced this? What have your docs explained about C3 and C4?
So confused ....
