... 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 &...

... 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)

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)

... 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)
... Hi. Thank you so much for your reply. I got some of my bloodtest results. But it's in afrikaans so I'm not if it's going to influence the abbreviations. Thyroid test for T4 and TSH was in normal range Anti-DNA Neg 8 Specific Anti body test Positive High 2.4 Anti-SM, Anti RO, Anti-La, Anti RNP, Sklerodermia, RNP/U1, SS-A, RO52, SSB, PM-scl, JO-1, CENP,...

... Thank you. I did read sticky notes. Although I am 22 year old caucasian male (which is quite rare to get this disease), a lot of the symptoms match. While having all symptoms listed above I've been also loosing hair at the hairline and crown. Doctor ordered some additional blood work: ANA titer, ANA with reflex cascade, vitamin B12, TSH, thymoglobulin/thyroid peroxidase ab ... (5 replies)
... Actually, those numbers are your actual results, not that amount lower/higher than the range. So both are significant enough to mean something. My guess is that your titer will come out at 1:160 +or- 1 titer. You can visit the lupus board and read over the sticky notes about symptoms, etc., to see if very many match how you feel. Some are more specific to lupus than others. (5 replies)
