1. What can I do to change my histone antibody level?
Talk to your health practitioner about discontinuing the potentially offending drug. When this is done, the histone antibody level should drop over time. Histone antibody levels do not respond to lifestyle changes.
2. If the level of my histone antibodies decreases, can I take my drug again?
No. The antibodies may drop to very low or undetectable levels, but a small amount will still exist. If you resume taking your drug, it is very likely that your symptoms and increased antibody level would reemerge.
