Be sure to have dental check regularly to prevent chronic gingivitis. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

See your MD: The positive ANA and lupus anticoag may be associated with potential for blood clotting issues and clearly represent autoimmune disease potentially, of which the hypothyroidism may be a part.
