Hello Ladies, I went for my follow up this morning and got the results from my lab work .. almost all my results were abnormal !!
I had a high level of inflammation, so the Dr. recommends me to a Rheumatologist because she says she is pretty sure it is Rheumatoid arthritis.
I also had elevated liver enzymes which she said was probably from all the inflammation but she will be monitoring.
I am borderline diabetic ... i told her I don't want to take medication I will try and control with diet.
I don't drink alcohol so I don't understand the liver thing and I try to stay away from fried foods...
She did say I was premenopausal, but she said that has nothing to do the rest of the stuff going on , the only thing she did agree that was a symptom was the hot flashes which I don't get very often , she said that was because I'm probably done with menopause .
I am 51 and I had a hysterectomy when I was 40 so I shouldn't really have menopausal symptoms?
Can anyone tell me what a rheumatologist does to find out if it is or isn't arthritis?
