Hi My name is Laurie,
I have been having problems with digestion which started out as heartburn, then went to severe diarrhea, then I developed very dry mouth and eyes so in November my GP did a test for sjogrens but only an SLE profile C the sjogren's Anti-ssb was 1.0 with a range of 0.0-0.9 not a huge elevation, now she believes that it may be lymes instead so she did a CD57 and all bands are absent the only thing out of range is the abs.cd8-cd57+ lymphs it was low at 48 range is 60-360 my % cd8-/cd57 + lymphs was 3.0 range 2.0-17.0 Please help any imput of what to do would help. I have since convinced another doctor to do more extensive bloodwork like an ANA, RF, ESR, and repeat SSA, SSB for the sjogren's.
