Has anyone had abnormal blood work due to your autoimmune disorder? I've researched it some and found that platelet levels can be affected by autoimmune disorders, as well as other things.

Oh yes Tim. Platelet levels are affected by inflammation. My lupus diagnosis was done with a blood test and was positive.

I ask, or warn others because when I banged my head last February I didn't clot fast enough and ended up having a stroke. Just another thing of autoimmune sufferers to consider if they are ever injured. Get checked on!

Holy cow Tim... I just googled it and had no idea. Thanks for the info.

That's really interesting, Tim. I've never thought about it affecting platelets but that makes so much sense...
