Just got the ANA results which was negative. I haven't had a comment from my dr about it.
She stated previously she would be apprehensive to diagnose an autoimmune disease with a negative ANA... I have read somewhere that it is only about half the people with Hashimoto's that has positive ANA?
Or does this mean the possibility of Hashimoto's is less and leaning more towards a cancer diagnosis?
I am going to have an ultrasound of my thyroid on the 10th April - I assume to check for cancer, goitre and/or nodules.
Does that all make sense?
How would you interpret above?
(I have had lots of other test done - listed in previous post - mostly euthyroid with T3 below range once. Low on ferritin despite supplements)
Waiting time is frustrating.
