... doctor I had been feeling off. Run down, anxious, and having some neck and body aches... I was worried about my thyroid. My blood work came back with a positive ANA 320. My TSH was 4.4 and he said it wasn't my thyroid. I was then sent to a Rheumatologist yesterday and had more labs and an exam. ... (2 replies)
... h your levels, as that can change depending on type of test done and lab. It is important to know how high the dsDNA antibodies were both times, and how high the ANA was in Dec. ... (2 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)
... 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)
Ana 1:80

... Other findings beyond ANA would be required to be diagnosed with any of the AI's. ... (4 replies)
... Welcome to the boards! Yes an ANA of 1:320 is significant. The lowest level positive is 1:40, then 1:80, then 1:160, then 1:320. In the clinical setting of pericardial effusion, which occurs generally as a result of pericarditis (inflammation), it is probably related. Pericarditis is one of the more serious manifestations of lupus. Your Dr's will likely diagnose that disease... (1 replies)
... I have a pericardial effusion of unknown cause. My ANA result is 1:320 while my autoimmune disease specific testing is all negative. Is this significantly above the normal level? Does it mean anything? (1 replies)
... Hi. Sinus tacchycardia is an elevated heart rhythm. Re specific autoantibodies. ANA 320, RF (elevated on a couple of occasions), Anti-CCP (normal). Thyroid (normal), ankylosing spondylitis (negative). I am not sure about anything else. But the rheumy did not find any other abnormalities in 2012. Right from the very beginning the rheumatologist could not fit my... (13 replies)
... So, livedo reticularis IS a rash, and I would take some good photos of it when it is present, since it comes and goes. Mine always is most noticeable after I shower before I warm up. Your Dr is ignoring a positive result on your ANA. If the livedo rash doesn't change her mind, I would seek another rheum. Not acknowledging titers below 1:320 is just wrong, and I wonder how many...

... Your ANA is reported on a newer system for screening. ... (5 replies)
... Hi & welcome. I'm sorry you're under the weather & not getting speedy answers. AI's can take awhile to diagnose, unfortunately. Here are things that came to my mind as I read your posts. Re: your ANA of 1:320. ANA is positive in multiple conditions, not just lupus; so when it's positive, more specific tests for "ANA subtypes" are usually run. Did you get a copy of your... (4 replies)
... First, I have to admit I have been creeping this site for a couple weeks :) I went in a couple weeks ago for extreme fatigue, muscle/joint pain and tingling/nerve pain in my hands and both big toes. The labwork showed a low ferritin of 7 and I was referred to a hematologist. CBC, thyroid all normal. B12 was on low end and MMA was slightly elevated. ANA was 1:320 and... (4 replies)
... Hi, Katie. ANA is a general test, so it alone can't diagnose any condition(s). 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)
... ite rare so they don't usually do the extra antibody tests for it without symptoms like Raynaud's, even with a nucleolar pattern. They are far more accurate than ANA patterns. ... (27 replies)
... Hello, I was wondering if anyone can comment on my test result. Rheumy said she was very suprised that titer was positive 1:320 and that it may be false positive. She thinks my symptoms are more Fibro related(diagnosed Fibro 10 years ago) and that the patter of Nucleolar is not usually Lupus but Scleroderma and she has determined that I do not appear to have any symptoms...

... Either way, I think we can get you started on your ANA question. ANA by itself can't diagnose anything, for several reasons. ... (6 replies)

... Kehop, I hope you don't have lupus. Good news is that (1) ANA is non-specific & can elevate simply due to a passing virus or infection, or due to a family tendency, etc. And (2), in the world of autoimmunes, I believe 1:320 is a pretty low ANA. And (3), if you were fighting an infection, etc., perhaps that's why your WBC is a little low?---You could ask your specialist. ... (2 replies)
