Hello All. Blood tests in April showed a positive ANA (titre 1:40 homogeneous pattern), which my GP ignored. Another ANA test done by the gastrologist a few weeks ago also showed a positive ANA (titre unknown, waiting to go for full results). The gastrologist has written to my GP asking him to refer me to a rheumatologist and I am going to see him today to follow up on this.
Bloods for TSH in April were 1.1 (0.30 - 5.00 min/L). I am aware that this is not a very accurate test.
I'm still struggling with B12 (it appears to have stopped working) and it looks like something autoimmune may be going on but because of the cross-over symptoms, it's quite difficult to sort out exactly what!
My questions are: would it be reasonable and appropriate to ask my GP to run a full thyroid screen and a full adrenal panel? And is there anything else that I could reasonably asking him to test, prior to further hospital appointments?
