with an elevated Ama indicating autoimmune problems doesn't that suggest I am reacting to something
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 months ago

an elevated ANA and bright red cheeks needs more testing

you need more blood testing to check for lupus

you may need to see a GI doctor

and get a colonoscopy and upper endoscopy scope procedure.
