... Now it is possible, since you have SSB and symptoms that over time other antibodies may become positive. Thats because having 1 autoimmune is like being a host to a party, it sends out invites for the others. Not always true, but possible. ... (6 replies)
... nysue, I'm just a patient but I think your labs and symptoms could be suggestive of lupus, but only depending on your lab levels. To put your lab results into context, you really do need the reference ranges. Also, there are OTHER tests typically run when lupus is suspected, so you'd want to know what ELSE was run. Could you procure hardcopy of your labs? To illustrate.... (28 replies)
... Also, some people have a somewhat elevated ANA due only to aging, to a family tendency, or to a passing bacterial or viral infection. ... (8 replies)

... She is going to retest in two months. She said this could be a false reading. I'm not sure why she said that because my ANA was the same last summer. ... (8 replies)
... Retired, I understand being upended by the word "lupus". I was, too. I headed to the library & borrowed hardcovers with greater detail that you can find online. From them I was able to see if I did have lupus (and I'd had a whole slew of on-off symptoms since early childhood), that even so, it was likely on the milder side. Why? Because my major organs were OK. Yes,... (8 replies)
... Thank you both for your positive words and the information you have provided. I am trying my best to stay upbeat and positive. Last year at this time I was (by my definition) a perfectly healthy person living my life. I ate right, exercised, didn't smoke and had a drink once in while. In February is when all the visits to the ER started and in April I was diagnosed with... (8 replies)
... Retired, I tend to agree with Vee in that if you have no symptoms, you probably don't have an illness at this point, and may never develop one. These autoimmune diseases are weird in that symptoms may precede lab evidence, labs may precede symptoms or even occur by themselves in the absence of illness long term. Antibodies by themselves don't make a diagnosis. I certainly do... (8 replies)
... Hi Vee, Thank you so much for this information. I have no symptoms of Lupus other than these numbers. Unfortunately I feel that I have no faith in my doctor and once I get retested and get my numbers back (Feb 20th) I am going for a second opinion. This has completely upended me as the more I read about Lupus the more frightened I become. I am 58 and feel like if I get... (8 replies)
... I guess we can rule out drug induced lupus if you're not on any medications. I found this bit of information which is interesting: The Anti-ssDNA can be positive in the following... Positive (percentage refers to sensitivity) Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (30-70%) Mixed connective tissue disorders (MCTD) Sjogren's Syndrome Scleroderma Polymyositis But it's not specific....

... My doctor never mentioned drug induced lupus; only the word lupus. I do not take any prescription meds. I take several vitamins that are recommended for fibromyalgia. Magnesium, CoQ10, curcumin, D, C, fish oil, B12, probiotics, cranberry, and E. Thank you so much for your input. (8 replies)
... Hi there. I'm sure one of the more knowledgeable members will be able to confirm if this us usually true or not, but i thought that ss-dna was common in drug induced lupus? What medications are you taking if you don't mind me asking? I did a little bit of research on this for myself so may be able to help a little bit :-) (8 replies)

... Just got a call from my doctor's office stating that my lab results showed ana 1-160, WBC 2.9, and vitamin D 19. Lets just say...... that I hate lupus!!! (1 replies)

... write back before now! Anyhow, ANA is only a general test that can be positive in a wide variety of conditions, not just lupus. The ANA test involves doing successive dilutions, and inspecting the sample at each point to see if "fluoresced material" still shows up. ... (1 replies)

... Hi blessedbeauty, I thought I would reply through this thread because I don't know how to message people, but I have crohns (for 8 yrs starting at 15) and am being tested for lupus now too. I had a positive ana at 1:160 but they say that it could also be from remicade, I'm awaiting more specific results too. This past year I've also had joint pain in hands (unusual for... (1 replies)
