... After negative 3 negative ANAs I've now got a positive one 1:80 nucleolar. But noone contacted me about it.

... is considered positive, just how positive depends on the doctor interpreting it I suppose. I do know though that your ANA can change from day to day even, that's why people can have one reading at one draw and a different one at another. ... (5 replies)
... Tammy, I think there are at least two measuring systems for ANA, so you should ask which was used. There's a titer system in which 1:80 would be low, but there's an International Unit system in which it wouldn't be.

... Hi, Katie: Being 19, I imagine it's tough suddenly feeling sick when you've been so active. I was diagnosed with SLE at age 21, and my thoughts are with you. You said you could call the doctor's office today to explain the positive test results from 2/20. Did they explain everything? I do know that symptoms, and a series of tests (over time) are done to diagnose... (3 replies)

It can elevate in a variety of autoimmunes, but it can laso elevate simply due to a passing infection, virus, or family tendency. To give you an idea of where 1:80 falls on the ANA scale, 1:40 is the lowest level that gets reported. Next is yours = 1:80. Then 1:160, 1:320, 1:640, 1:1280, and... (3 replies)
