I have a positive ana, positive lupus anticoagulant, 386 value for microsomal antibodies. C3 of 113, C4 of 53. A rash on face could it be lupus?

I have a positive ana, positive lupus anticoagulant, 386 value for microsomal antibodies. C3 of 113, C4 of 53.  A rash on face could it be lupus?

Think about getting back to that fitness-focused lifestyle you had as a teen. ...Read more
