This last week I went in for extensive bloodwork. Starting at baseline for where I am, I needed to know what kind of surprises would be in store for me as I make my way to health once again.
As I mentioned previously, the diagnosis of RA caught me off guard, and I’ve never been satisfied with. Now, I’m doing my due diligence and researching everything I can. I’m altering my diet, my sleep habits and my exercise routine.
As of right now, I’m looking at the following markers:
- Rheumatoid Factor: 25.3 IU/mL (Above normal range of 0.0-13.9)
- C-Reactive Protein: 4.33 mg/L (above normal range of 0.00-3.00)
This is the starting line. This is where I begin my quest to heal myself.
