Hi Debra,

When I go to the doctors on Tuesday how will they determine what autoimmune disease I have? Also, I was looking at my results and from the bloodwork and it says 187 for RF by nephlometry but negative under ANA screen. This makes me think that I don't have an autoimmune disease???

Hi S,

I'm sorry I did not see this until this morning. The fact that ANA is negative is a very good thing. That may rule out AI diseases like Lupus, Sjogren's others associated with ANA. If you show a positive lab to Rf, then there is a higher probability of RA. According to a book I have on the Rf lab test, the odds are 75% that it's RA but that leaves a 25% chance that it could be something else. That's why it's important that your Rheumatologist continues to examine your signs and symptoms. There are other criteria for a diagnosis. And remember catching any disease development in it's early stage is a very good thing. With a little work and medication it's possible to keep it at bay for years or forever.

I found a support board sponsored by the Arthritis foundation where you might find a few more answers and questions to ask your new Rheumatologist on your first appointment. Let me know if this is helpful and I'll make another post for this support community. I do seem to get a few clients with RA or at least the beginning stages of it.

One last thing....gluten sensitivity and Celiac disease are highly associated with RA. A gluten-free diet has been shown to reduce inflammation in the body...also reducing RA symptoms.

note:

Gluten has been associated with may other autoimmune diseases such as Type 1 diabetes, Lupus, Sjogren's, Rheumatoid arthritis, Endometriosis and MS. These diseases/conditions are inheritable and run along family lines. If there is an autoimmune disease in your family please make sure you are screened properly.

One more note of importance; many grains (wheat, rye, oats, lentils) are being sprayed with glyphosate, also known as RoundUp, as a desiccant just prior to harvest. In many cases leaving very high levels of residue of this herbicide and its metabolites in the foods many eat on a daily basis. I would highly recommend, if you are eating gluten containing grains or gluten-free grains, buy organic. Organic foods prohibit the use of toxic herbicides or pesticides, known to disrupt beneficial gut bacteria.
