... Hello all, I am brand new to this forum and just got diagnosed with Lupus last week. Some background info: I have hypothyroidism--on meds and under control--but didn't show Antithyroid antibodies (TPOAb). Had my 1st pregnancy followed by miscarriage in March (5 months ago). Six weeks ago, I was perfectly normal and healthy. Then, I woke up one morning, with the left... (3 replies)

... sitive in a variety of conditions, not just lupus. And it can also be positive due to a passing virus, aging, etc. So your GP makes sense when he says elevated ANA doesn't prove lupus. ... (6 replies)

... When I emailed the doc she said that 42 is low and not to worry, but now I have the ana that came back. I just feel that there is something other than fibro going on with me. ... (7 replies)
... ANA of 1280 is considered significant, I think... but ANA may be positive in multiple conditions, not only lupus. ... (3 replies)
... next month, but in the meantime I'm curious if anyone has any thoughts about what this could be. GP say a negative dsDNA means I don't have Lupus, and that the ANA could be a false positive? ... (6 replies)
... Hi Sjogrens Yes. With the little understanding I have of the ANA 1:1280 is that there are numerous causes for this count and not all relating to LUPUS. There are a number of variables. I am going to be patient and wait for more tests. Will post the results, when I get them. I will have a better direction then. Cheers. (19 replies)

... Anyway, with an ANA that high, there's a very good possibility of connective tissue disease, but not necessarily Lupus. ... (19 replies)
... lovesunshine, I don't know why you can't see my posts...? The whole point of my original post was to tell you I had the same ANA titer and have NOT been diagnosed with Lupus -there are many other causes for an elevated ANA, and not all of them are as serious as Lupus or the other connective tissue diseases.

... Hi Thanks also for your reply. I have no rashes, itches or skin irritation ... yet. From what I have read, the 1:1280 count can be due to a number of factors. I guess I need to show due patience and wait for more tests. Cheers (19 replies)
... speckled pattern. I was on plaquenil and prednisone, and my last ANA was also negative. I am convinced it is from the medicine. My Dr. also sais it usually does not turn negative. ... (5 replies)
... Thank you so much for the reply Vee! I will look over the sticky posts and see what I can find. I was able to get a copy of my lab results and my ANA shows >=1:1280 Speckled. Other notable results were the slightly low Vitamin D (the labs agree with you, normal being above 30, but my doctor was looking for 50 or more) and the low WBC count (3.5, the results show 3.6 is...

... Oh, and according to the sticky on this thread about diagnosing criteria, I have ONE of the 11: arthralgia. According to the testing criteria, I tested positive for ONE of the Lupus criteria: high ANA. How then could my doc say I have Lupus? (3 replies)

I was diagnosed with Sjogren's a year ago based off of very similar symptoms (extreme fatigue, joint pain and swelling, hair loss, IBS symptoms, muscle pain, dry/flaky skin, mouth sores, nose bleeds, migraines that are increasing in frequency and a long list of other things). My initial blood work was highly suggestive of Sjogren's -... (6 replies)

... alled and left a msg stating the results were "interesting" and she was sending us to a pediatric rhuematologist. We have an appt in a few weeks. I looked up the ANA tests and what the results might mean. And, I'm scared to death for my daughter. If all of her other blood work was normal, wouldn't that help rule out lupus? ... (4 replies)
