Uncertain: These test results don't add up to a straight forward answer. However, I would be concerned about the possibility of recurrent primary hyperparathyroidism. You should take Vit D to eliminate Vit D deficiency as a cause for high PTH levels. Once this is done, if you still have high PTH with high calcium levels, you have recurrent primary HPTH and will need surgery again. ...Read more

Crp was high now normal. Sed rate elevated. Ana+w/speck pattern. Thyroid ok. Metabilic and CBC and urine ok. Little low vitamin d... Any idea?

Crp was high now normal. Sed rate elevated. Ana+w/speck pattern. Thyroid ok. Metabilic and CBC and urine ok. Little low vitamin d... Any idea?

Labs mean little: CRP and sed rate vary greatly for no obvious reason frmo day to day. A majority of americans run a low vitamin d due to our diets & habits. My one concern is if the ANA is at a high-titer, which warns of lupus or a variety of other possibilities, but labs mean nothing apart from the history and physical exam. ...Read more

Many possibilites: First fix the easy stuff, vitamin (e.g. 50,000 IU weekly of a good quality Vit D3 from sheep lanolin), sort out & resolve the anemia & get better quality help worthy of your trust. Many possibilities for ESR, including: infections, e.g. osetomyelitis, bacterial endocarditis, abscess, tuberculosis, also multiple myeloma, giant cell arteritis, etc. Use Google, do your homework & http://goo.gl/3TdWh0 ...Read more

What is implication homogeneous ANA 1:320, compliment 4 high 44, sed rate and c-reactive protein often elevated and vitamin d low?

Several causes: The vitamin d is probably a seperate problem and should be treated by a supplement. The other lab you reported can be a sign of an autoimmune disease as well as many other diseases. You should discuss the cause with your doctor. ...Read more

Wrong approach: Sed rate is worthless on a fishing expedition. You need to address your vitamin D deficiency with diet, supplements and/or sunlight. Low spot cortisol means nothing unless there's a reasonable suspicion for Addison's. If you are cycling, estrogen levels aren't the key. Trusting glucose and other basics are OK. Organic illness, if present, will be revealed on history and physical. ...Read more

A positive ANA test, vitamin d deficient, anemia, body aches, and high sed rate. Could all of these symptoms be caused from celiac?

A positive ANA test, vitamin d deficient, anemia, body aches, and high sed rate. Could all of these symptoms be caused from celiac?

No: Celiac disease can cause vitamin d deficiency and anemia, but it's not associated with a positive ANA test. Most patients with celiac have a normal sed rate. Vitamin d deficiency is often associated with myalgia. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease, and having one autoimmune disease increases your chances of having another one, such as lupus, which can explain your posiitve ANA and body aches. ...Read more

More than one issue: You did not state your age or gender and it is difficult to tie all the findings together without a physical examination. Vitamin d is the easiest to deal with, about 1/3 of the population has low vit d levels, and you can correct that with an over the counter supplement. Rest of the finding suggest and autoimmune process, but you need to consult a physician for a thorough evaluation. ...Read more

What can cause low vitamin d , high sed rate positve ANA  daily headaches fatigue joint pain slight vision chance and loss of balance?

Make diagnosis: Those are a lot of things and they may or may not all be connected. Certainly with an elevated sed rate and a positiveana test are concerning for an autoimmune condition, such as lupus, would be a concern. I would encourage you to continue work up with a rheumatologist and ultimately the single or multiple diagnosis made will aid in treatment and prognosis discussions. Thank you. ...Read more
