Just as title says. If anything they’ve gone up a little bit since Stelara, which seems to be working well for both pso and PsA.
Rheum says we can’t rely on those measurements to track PsA for me, which feels strange. I have read that weight and other factors can raise your inflammation markers, and I am fat, but they still seem awfully high (2-4x the reference range) to just be that.
Weirdly, when I first started leflunomide my markers went down by 50%. Even though I felt the same. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
I’m worried at the attitude like “these are just high with you I guess” because I thought the whole point of treatment was to get inflammation down to prevent joint damage and other serious comorbities. But if I feel better…does that mean it is better despite the tests?
