Thoughts? I just got this result. I have autoimmune disease already; Myasthenia Gravis and Small Fiber Neuropathy. But everything I have read online indicates this is suggestive of another autoimmune disease, most likely Lupus.

I have been in remission from Lyme (as far as I can tell) for almost a year, and only treating Babesia. I am currently on Amoxycillin as a prophylactic because I got bitten about a week ago.

Appreciate anyone's input.

I had the same result.

My LLMD said it was from lyme because it is an inflammatory marker, and that it would go down with treatment.

My result did improve with time, even if it's not negative.

I was recently diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroiditis.

Curious as to whether the blood draw for the test was before or after the new bite? I think it is possible the bite could influence the test results.

I had that test result when I was first dxd with Lyme. We checked it later and it was a normal result.

I had the same result. Still low positive but in remission from Lyme.

A double strand DNA test would confirm the Lupus diagnosis.

My DD had this also and it's from the Lyme.
