Yesterday I went to get the results from my Rheumatologist, and the test he did to see what stage of Lupus I have came back 1 positive and the rest negative. Which means that I have a slight case of Lupus, I am highly anemic, my thyroid level was low but not bad. But the 24 hour urine test for proteins came back as high proteins, not dangerously high to put into hospital. He put me on another medication with the others to treat the conditions of Lupus, Scleroderma and see if will stop the leakage in my kidneys. I will have to be monitored by doing future urine test, but for now I have to see him in 2 weeks to see if the medication is working. He did not want to send me to a kidney doctor to have a biopsy done yet, before the medication start to work. But he did mention if my primary care doctor wants to send me to a kidney doctor, it’s up to her.
The upside of everything is that I starting eating more since I am taking the steroids, my skin feels softer although I feel like I am always running a marathon. Now I know I have 3 auto-immune diseases and its a matter of treatment, control and adapting to my new life.
