You are so right about our lab results always fluctuating and, as such, getting a diagnosis is always a crap shoot. Sometimes our lab results come back in the normal ranger because we are taking our medications. Sometimes they come back in the normal range because our disease has gone into a form of inactivity. But, normal range lab results DOES NOT mean that we do not have the illness, in spite of the fact that so many doctors like to tell us that.
I know that you are not asking to have this disease, but you do want definite answers and, unfortunately, that is something of a luxury for us. So, it is helpful to know that what is happening to us does have a name and that our lab results are telling us the status of that illness..not if we do or do not have it any longer.
So, in that respect, I am glad that some of your labs are in the normal range. Could you tell us exactly which ones came back 13.5? Was it the ANA??
Anemia is also something that is very common for most of us. Again, it is a symptom that can come and go. I hope that you can get you anemia under control. I wish you the very best
Peace and Blessings
