I recently went through my medical history as I have been Very disheartened and frustrated by GPs and my case...
Although these results may span years, I wonder if they are helpful still and whether they show a bigger picture. Of course it'd be best to have recent results for my C4 but good luck with that lol...
So here's my results:
Anti-Thyroglobulin Abs 484.8 <115 in December 2016
Immunoglobulin A 4.6 g/L (0.7-4) in January 2017
C4 220mg/L (200-500) in 2009
Please note I'm looking back through my history as I've had hypothyroid symptoms since early 1990s when I was a teenager. And earlier signals of struggling immune system even in the 80s with a severe bout of glandular fever when I was 8 yrs old...
My dr agrees the thyroid antibodies could be Hashimoto's. But he dismissed the IgA result because it wasn't flagged by my previous GP (during a celiac test) despite it being slightly out of range. But I found online high IgA can be an early sign of Lupus or RA (which I have some symptoms of...)
Low C4 test - I was never told about this result as it was Just in range. But I found online it can be a marker of autoimmune disease too.
But what fascinates me is these 3 things (thyroid antibodies, IgA and C4) are all globulin-related... what does this mean?
Thank you for any insight xx
