In brief: Low Vit D, others OK

None of these tell if you have autoimmune disease (ad).
You have low d, which increases risk of autoimmune disease, heart disease, cancer etc.- most adults need 5-8000 iu of d in fall ; winter for optimal levels- see http://bit.Ly/1gnxnk0 ; http://bit.Ly/1ekkvkv normal uric acid shows you don't have gout. Esr is often high in autoimmune disease but you are on already on meds for ad that lower esr.

I'm not sure why you are on 2 powerful immunosuppressive drugs if they don't know if you have autoimmune disease! A high ESR is a sign of autoimmune disease but other things can cause this. If you stopped your meds and the ESR became high that would be a sign of autoimmune disease but still not definitive- auto-antibodies show autoimmune disease.
