Please See My Attached Results From My ANA And Blood

default
Posted on Sun, 7 Aug 2022
Question:
Please see my attached results from my ANA and blood test and advise me on what you think could be going on with me. Please keep in mind that I had COVID19 on February 5, 2022 and could this be contributing to any of my problems? I sent current ANA and past lipids tests. If I need to have any other blood work done please let me know. Also, I have Hashimotos and high blood pressure and high cholesterol, high sugar as well. I was in better shape when I moved to GA in 11/22/2021 but I got depressed because of the move and started eating any and everything and not exercising but now I'm changing that after this. I really need blunt advice not someone who is sugar coating things. Please help. Thanks

Brief Answer:
ANA test

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

An antinuclear antibody (ANA) test checks to see if you have an autoimmune disorder, a condition where the immune system attacks healthy cells. The immune system can attack any part of the body. It attacks the parts mainly made of connective tissue.

Joint affection can lead to a severe form of arthritis, skin can lead to itchy or deep scaling or crusty lesions, especially on the face. In some even the connective tissue in the heart can be affected leadig to heart failure secondary to valves damages.

Please re-send the report. It is missing here.

I shall see the report and advice on the same.
