2183922 tn?1340289260 t always straightforward according to my best friend who has both discoid and systemic lupus. She is in remission. They found hers by a biopsy of the sking and not the blood tests. Also a good dermatologist that has seen the rash of lupus can help distinguish it too. Did the plaqenil (hydroxychloroquine) help your symtoms?
Avatar f tn The PTPN22 gene increases the risk of type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune thyroid disease, systemic lupus erythematosus, vitiligo. Alopecia areata often occurs in people whose family members have other autoimmune diseases, such as type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid disease, systemic lupus erythematosus, pernicious anaemia, or Addison's disease.
Avatar m tn sDNA is highly diagnostic of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and implicated in the pathogenesis of lupus nephritis (inflammation of the kidney caused by SLE). High calcium can be seen with SLE due to either the immune system targeting the parathyroid glands (extremely rare) or more commonly due to kidney problems.
Avatar f tn The homogenous pattern is associated with systemic lupus erythematosus and mixed connective tissue disease. The speckled pattern is associated with systemic lupus erythematosus, sjogren syndrome, scleroderma, polymyositis, rheumatoid arthritis, and mixed connective tissue disease.

Avatar f tn The systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) could be causing the symptoms you described. Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) can affect the skin, musculoskeletal, heart, kidneys and the brain. In lupus the blood counts (red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets) are low, positive antinuclear antibodies in the blood, increased sedimentation rates and increased C reactive protein. Diagnosis of Lupus is a combination of clinical symptoms and tests and there are '11' criteria.
Avatar m tn When internal organs are involved, the condition is called systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Both discoid and systemic lupus are more common in women than men. Common complaints and symptoms include fatigue, low-grade fever, loss of appetite, muscle aches, arthritis, ulcers of the mouth and nose, facial rash ("butterfly rash") and photosensitivity to light.
Avatar m tn What are the symtoms of both diseases that you wrote about (IgA nephropathy or Systemic lupus erythematosus)? He does have Diabetes, High Blood Pressure and blocked arteries in his heart.
Avatar m tn The common causes of passing proteins in urine are diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, kidney infections, kidney diseases,hypertension,systemic lupus erythematosus etc.I suggest that you should consult your treating doctor and clarify your concerns. Any test result must be correlated clinically. This is merely an advice and not a substitute for clinical examination. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. Hope it helps. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar f tn "A nucleolar pattern of the ANA is seen not only in SLE but also in inflammatory myositis and systemic sclerosis." - Rheumaknowledgy - Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) *** "C3 and C4 are blood proteins that are involved with the immune response. Lupus is a disease that involves immune hyperreactivity and thus levels of these proteins can be low in active lupus as they are consumed. C4 can be low without C3 also being low.
Avatar n tn Antinuclear antibodies (ANAs) are found in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and other connective tissue diseases. Anti SSA have been detected with high frequency in patients with Sjögren's syndrome. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Thanks for your reply. I am much relieved now.
1134424 tn?1308741291 The etiology of paraesthesia includes apart from vitamin B12 deficiency, alcohol intake, hypothyroidism, diabetes mellitus, malnutrition, trauma, connective tissue diseases like systemic lupus erythematosus, certain antibiotics, pyridoxine overdose, lyme disease, leprosy etc. you can try correcting the nutritional deficiencies and possible overdoses and alcoholism. Consult a neurologist for further work up and management. Hope this helps .Take care.
Avatar f tn Just to add, the non thyroidal illness condition is called by a few names in medical literature but most commonly Euthyroid Sick Syndrome (ESS) although other names can be used such as Non-thyroidal Illness Syndrome (NTIS) and Low T3 Syndrome. 'In SLE group, 20% had euthyroid sick syndrome, 20% had hypothyroidism (10% subclinical and 10% biochemical), and 10% had hyperthyroidism (5% subclinical and 5% biochemical).
Avatar f tn The changes can occur due to local causes like recurrent lung infections and sometimes due to cancer of the lungs. They can also be seen in systemic diseases like systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcoidosis and scleroderma. Further evaluation will be based on whether the lesion is changing in size and systemic symptoms. A PET scan and biopsy may help in evaluation. A biopsy facilitates a histologic study of cells, which gives you a definite diagnosis.
Avatar f tn Ultimately, in patients with kidney disease from systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus nephritis), a kidney biopsy may be necessary to both define the cause of the kidney disease as being lupus-related as well as to determine the stage of the kidney disease in order to optimally guide treatments. Kidney biopsies are often performed by fine needle aspiration of the kidney under radiology guidance, but in certain circumstances, a kidney biopsy can be done during an open abdominal operation. 8.
