... Hello, After years of complaining of stiff joints and fatigue, my rashes, dry eyes and dry mouth are pushing me closer to a diagnosis. Thought for sure my blood work would show + for Sjogrens Antibodies, but it didn't. Now I'm thinking lupus. Could someone please take a look at my labs and tell me what you think? It seems like I got flagged for a little bit of... (1 replies)
... Looks good! However, the explanations that I've found about ANA testing don't use anything called "isr" and the values look completely different.... Can anyone explain this to me? ... (1 replies)
... It can induce anti dsdna antibodies in patients when on anti tnf's, it can also induce ANA positivity as well. When the drug is discontinued the anti dsdna bodies can fall back into normal range. ... (7 replies)

... My ana came back strong positive 1,280 homogenous. ... (7 replies)
... Thanks for your note. See my comments below... :) Thanks! Appreciate it much! (29 replies)
... Hi, I've been posting on Cancer forums but am moving now to the Lupus forum. I just saw a Rheuma this past week and have my follow-up sched for next Monday. My history is a bit long... -Got sick mid-July 2014 w/abdominal symptoms (diagnosed/hospitalized w/ UC/Gastritis 2012). Started low-grade fever Aug 2014. -saw Gastro: she says UTI, puts me on Cipro. Cipro gave... (29 replies)
... The good news is, the only thing that has been out of range is AST, which isnt necessarily liver specific but has been at potentially chronic levels if it is from my liver. ... (11 replies)
... I understand your disgust. So I hate saying this, but rheum's approach seems by-the-book and "correct" to me, especially since your last RF was still in the negative range... and I can't even guess about your previous ANA & anti-DNA (you didn't state those). For lupus, rheums do need to see a certain number of findings, per the established ACR criteria. (You may find those in... (7 replies)
... Based on that, I still suspect that it's possible that a reading of 13 could be a tiny bit elevated yet nowhere near the range that worries most rheums. For example, the author of one book only really worries at a certain level. ... (4 replies)
... Welcome KM to the boards. I think we can help you. You do have several symptoms suggestive of lupus, plus two tests that support the diagnosis. 19 is not very high on the dsDNA, and many people with lupus have low numbers like this and do not have kidney involvement. This level fluctuates some, but for reference sake, some people have anti-dsDNA in the 100-400 range when they... (3 replies)
... Once ANA is positive, rheums run tests for specific autoantibodies called "ANA subtypes". ... (7 replies)
... ANA Screen IFA POSITIVE ANA Pattern 1 HOMOGENEOUS ANA Titer 1 1:40 Reference Range <1:40 Negative 1:40-1:80 Low Antibody Level >1:80 Elevated Antibody Level My PCP ran blood work on me b/c of my symptoms. This is what we got back. I am going to my first rheumatologist appointment tomorrow. Just wondering what all this means. Any insight would be greatly... (4 replies)
... Hi. Now I'm really curious. What did your rash all those years ago look like & feel like? Do any of the rashes described in the "sticky post" on skin problems ring bells? I'm curious because I've never had a malar, either. I had 8 years of the annular form of SCLE, and didn't that befuddle my suburban doctors! The two SCLE rashes correlate strongly (but not 100%) to the... (18 replies)
... Hi, Kaypee, and welcome! If your lab uses the same ranges mine does for anti-ds-DNA, then your results = 32 are in the "equivocal" range. My lab uses the following: < 25 is negative 25 to 34.9 is equivocal 35 to 99.9 is weak positive 100 to 200 is positive > 200 is strong positive I've read that it's possible to have slightly elevated ANA & anti-ds-DNA yet NOT have...

... You might ask to get it and the ANA repeated. ... (18 replies)
... would seem to be fairly elevated. But since your lab uses a different range than mine, I think asking a rheum who knows how to interpret "Crithida titer" results is your best bet. ... (18 replies)
... RDW 16.1 high range 11. ... (18 replies)
... my overall Ana was positive but she said that she doesnt get concerned unless it it above 3. It is all so confusing to me. ... (21 replies)
... You really need to have a diagnosis, not only for everyone's understanding, but so you can get on treatment and feel better. Please look back at your ANA result and the reference range next to it. It is not a titer if it is 1.8, and that sounds like a positive result. ... (21 replies)
... DNA antibody of 8, even though it falls in the negative range may be significant as well, as most people have zero. It is found in lupus and relates at higher levels to kidney involvement. ... (7 replies)
