Another Update on Sjogrens and Kidney Lab Work

First, I believe the cellcept is bringing my sjogren titers down. I will hear back from MUSC next week on my course of action. I think they will want to increase my dosage. My ANA titer went from 1:1280 to 1:320 ....Pretty good! My Rhuematoid factor was over 2200 and now it stands at 225.8. SSA is 709 SSB is 874. I am not sure what these were previously. Everything is still high, but better!

Now....my hemoglobin is down to 10.0 and my hemacrit is 29.8. LOW!! So my procrit injections are back to once a week. I am dragging my butt from lack of energy. This is why I hav not posted as much lately. I know I will feel better in 2 or so weeks. They are checking my iron levels in 4 weeks too...I may also have to supplement the procrit injections with iron.

I'm glad things are moving along. I think when you up your injections again, it will make a big difference!
