    Default Interpreting ANA results...

    "Interpreting ANA results is a bit like reading tea leaves" - Best quote ever.

    This is what my derm said when I explained that my results change between speckled and centromere. He refers to my SLE and Sjogren's as "brenda's disease". He says that everyone who suffers from AI disease has their own unique combination of symptoms - much like snowflakes.

    I love this doctor. He really takes time to listen to me and helps me to understand.

    Glad you've got a good doc, that's important. Especially one who can translate doctor-talk into normal-speak... |;^)

    I love that quote! I am so happy that you have a doctor who takes you seriously, who listens to you and who is willing to treat you and your symptoms. That, in and of itself, is half of the battle.

    Peace and Blessings
    Namaste
