Smooth Muscle IFA
Blood test "Smooth Muscle IFA" is quite raised, i.e. 80 Pos and sometimes 20 Pos whereas normal = <1/10 negative titre.
I have had tests for liver disease - nothing wrong. Why is this level raised? Is there anything else I should be checked out for?

Julie, the best would be to see a specialist physician because you will have to have more tests done. A single abnormal test with no other symptoms doesn’t have to mean that something serious is wrong, but it might be. Good luck.
