I have noticed unexplained bruising on my thighs (currently a total of 5 bruises). I have tested with a positive ANA (low positive) and have suffered from muscle pain and fatigue for the past 5 years, with no firm diagnosis. I also have had unexplained blood in my urine, but have had a full work up on my bladder (CT and cystoscopy), with no material findings (my mother also has this). A full CBC run just a few months ago was normal, except for the ANA. I have also tested postive for the Smith antibody and am positive for MTHFR. Is this bruising possibly related to an auto immune condition? Does the MTHFR have an impact? I am not on any medication, but do take a B12 and folic acid daily. I also took a very small dosage for predisone about 4 weeks ago, to help relieve inflammation from a back injury (twisted too much in yoga). Not sure if the predisone could cause bruising so much later?

I was just recently tested for the MTHFR Mutation gene by my hematologist/oncologist, the test came back POSITIVE FOR ONE COPY OF THE A1298C MUTATION, what does that mean and how will that affect my currently blood condition called ITP (Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura)? Will I need to make lifestyle changes?

I m seeing an endocrinologist about my thyroid. My thyroid looks rough in the sonar gram. I was told it was damaged by antibodies and it is most likely not reversible. I did not feel good on T4 medication (levothyroxine, 75 mcg tablets) so I stopped taking it after 30 days. I had blood drawn today for testing my TSH, Antibodies & my thyroid levels and am waiting for results. Is that true? And why can t I take iodine (kelp) supplements? I was told it would be toxic to my thyroid.
