... Hi. I think my doctors would also deem an ANA of 1:640 meaningfully elevated. But to fully understand your anti-ds-DNA of 12, I think you need the reference range used by your lab.

... An ANA of 1:640 is moderately high. I don't know who is downplaying that, but it is not accurate or fair to you. 1:40 or 1:80 may be considered low +, 1:160- 1:320 mod. +, and I consider 1:640 and above high +. Someone just doesn't understand or doesn't want to deal with referrals, explaining things, etc. That is sad, and I am glad you got results for yourself. Now you have... (11 replies)
