if you had a positive Ana blood test .how many days did it take to receive results by post from doctors?
if you rang doctors to ask about results how many days did you leave it?
i have spent 7yrs having all my symptoms dismissed by GPS as just anxiety.so when i come across lupus on the Internet and asked a new GP about it. i was so amazed to be listen to and taken seriously .that i totally forgot to ask how long it takes to get blood test results
on Wednesday 31st October at 9.00am i had blood test taken at a small hospital .i don't know if they test bloods there or have them tested at a larger hospital .
test i had done where
full blood count
iron and iron binding
glucose fasting rule random specimen
liver function test
thyroid function test
i read that some blood test take longer to process than others but it did not say which ones
doctors only send you a letter if there is something wrong with results .so i am not sure how long to leave it before ringing doctors for results
i have only had the thyroid test before .1st time for all the others
GP said that lupus does not always show up on blood test and that if they all come back OK then i can still go back and discuss things.
he did say if something does show up than .we will have to decide what we are going to do about it
i feel more positive about things after seeing this GP
