... agement. I have reviewed the list of 11 things they look for to diagnose lupus. I definitely have some, but not all the time. I am worried that the higher the ANA the more likely that tissue damage is going on. I know that my liver function was slightly out of the normal range. Who knows? ... (4 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)

... Before starting with my questions and concerns about my daughterís condition, I would like to thank all the wonderful people on this board who helped me learn by posting their questions and concerns about lupus. My deep appreciation goes to VeeJ and Ladybud who have been tirelessly helping everybody for so long with their wealth of information and with such kindness. One... (35 replies)
... It can be positive in autoimmune hashimotos: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1765977 If there was a connective tissue disease present as well, most people are going to have something more to prove so. Your WBC or RBC could be low. Platelets might be messed up. Inflammatory markers (ESR, CPK) may be elevated. There are a bunch of different blood tests that can be done... (2 replies)
... From my knowledge, and I am not a doctor, is that if you have a positive ANA and a high Double stranded dna..your are at a higher percentage of having lupus. I suggest you call your doc and ask. I have a call into mine. ... (2 replies)
... joint aches and hair loss. I had a physical where my thyroid antibodies were very high, my t4 was low., and my ana was 1.5. I went to a rheumotologist to rule out any other possible issues. The rheumotologist told me I had hashimotos. .. ... (2 replies)
... hi everyone, i'm hoping for some advice as i'm convinced i have lupus. my doctors are now at the point where they wont order any further testing and they have completely ruled out lupus as a diagnosis. since getting ill in November with aches and pains, fatigue and a transient facial rash i've had several FBC's all normal with no inflammation markers, 3 ANA's all negative &... (12 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)

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...

... 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)
