Hi. Just recently was diagnosed with MCTD. I was seemingly healthy with a mild case of Raynauds. I pushed my primary health care dr to test for ANA and they came back high positive 1:1280 & Speckled.
Then went to a rheumatologist at Mayo Clinic. More tests and now high RNP.

Im super scared and confused. I’m going gluten free, dairy free, mostly sugar free- soda & coffee free. Cutting way back on alcohol (not ready to cut it yet).
Hope this helps??!!
