Thanks for your enquiry to Helplines. The kinds of things the blood tests cover may include:
inflammatory levels (esr/crp)
white blood count
We are not qualified to interpret the numbers - and the normal ranges vary according to your medical history/age etc so we would advise against a public discussion of the numbers someone else should be aiming for in their treatment, as these vary.
Your rheumatology nurse and consultant can go over your figures and help you understand the aims for your particular treatment regime.
I hope they are able to give you more detail.
If you email your name and address to [email protected] we can send you some articles on this too.
hope that helps
