... Meaning what, does homogenous lean toward a diagnosis of Lupus or not? I have always had positive ANA's 1:320 with a homogenous pattern, but one tested negative, even though all the other tests were positive, so this immune system problem was thrown completely out of the window, and I am still very sick.

... Leslie, In a pamphlet that I got from my doctor's office (rheumatologists), it does say that the ANA antibodies can rise and fall depending on if you're having a flare-up (rise) or if it's in remission, the antibodies can disappear altogether.
