Still on the search for help with my symptoms and still fighting a losing battle with the doctors to be tested. I finally persuaded the doctor to test for antibodies and the results are back but I could do with some help interpreting them if anyone is able to please.
I asked for a thyroid antibody test which I am presuming has been done but the results show a test for Connective Tissue Disease. Is that the same thing? I quickly Googled it and there is reference to autoimmune diseases such as Lupus and rheumatoid arthritis but I can't see anything specifically relating to the thyroid.
Antibodies tested for are: U1RNP (RNP70,A,C), SS-A/Ro (60kDa, 52kDa),SS
There are others, but does this mean anything to anybody??
Thanks in advance
