Hi everyone.....
My name is Kate, I am 34, married and a research technician at Edinburgh University. On Tuesday I got preliminary results back saying my CCP was above normal so have been referref to Rheumatology at ERI. Didn't think I was too bothered since it seems to be caught nice and early, but then when I told a colleague I found myself getting quite upset about it (doesn't help I am in pain almost constantly at the moment) :x
Can anyone give me an indication on the severity of CCP results? Mine apparently was only 3.8 (normal being 0 - 3) so I am guessing this is not too bad - right? :?
Look forward to getting some great advice from the nice people on here.... :wink:

    CCP I think I'm right in saying it means Cyllic Citrullinated Peptide it is found in the blood but I'm not a qualified person.
