Customer Question

I want to know what these results might indicate. My doctor called tonight and I missed the call. I have ILD specifically DIP and also fibrosis in a pattern the team can't recognize. He was going to start imuron but wanted to test for connective tissue diseases first... what do you think?

Hello and Welcome. Dr Saleem here. Well all is well except RA factor which can be found positive in normal people too sometimes, who do not necessarily have Rheumatoid arthritis. However keeping in view your ILD history it can be important as Rheumatoid may lead to ILD and might be the cause of your disease. ALDOLASE is raised in any disease causing liver or muscle damage, its just mildly raised here though.
