Negative ANA
Nov 28, 2017
... All ranges I found online were much smaller than this. ... (0 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)

... In the labs you posted the anti dsDNA is significantly elevated and that test is very specific to lupus. Could you please repost the rest of the labs with the reference ranges in (). These vary somewhat lab to lab, and would help in evaluating whether neg or positive. Thanks! (9 replies)
... Everything was within normal ranges except for the C reactive protein and it was barely within the high parameters. ... (9 replies)
... ANA is very non specific. DSDNA & Anti -Smith are more specific although not often positive in lupus. Im curious if you have the referance ranges available in the other antibody tests (anti dsdna, rnp, anti smooth muscle, etc) or if they were flagged high? Those are the more specific antibodies to lupus, sjrogrens, scleroderma, etc etc. (9 replies)
... Labs and reference ranges differ, but my lab would consider 19 to be negative. ... (3 replies)
... La, antiribosomal P, antierythrocyte, ANCA, antilymphocyte, antiplatelet, antineuronal, and rheumatoid factor. Specificity for these "fuzzy AB's" ranges from good to fair to poor. ... (7 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...

... Leslie, if DS DNA range is < 1:10, then 1:40 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. Btw, I believe anti-ds-DNA can elevate in people who *don't* have lupus, because of infection, etc.---so I'd ask about that, too. ALT relates to liver;... (18 replies)
... VeeJ, thank you so much for replying. Let me see if I can answer any of your questions. Yes, I got copies of everything. You would be amazed at how much I have. Literally, it is 8-10" thick, or more! I was gonna give you the ranges, but... ugh... I JUST realized that my OB/Gyn still has everything. She is a new OB/Gyn. I told her everything I've been experiencing & to my... (18 replies)
... in deep breathing is likely to be pleurisy, one of the critertia on the list of 11. If you get your other lab results, feel free to post them with the reference ranges for comment and help in interpretation. I hope your Dr. will go ahead and do anything additional she can now to avoid the wait. ... (8 replies)
... Katie, hi. I'm always curious about rashes because I had one for years (episodically) that many local dermatologists failed to diagnose, despite doing multiple deep-punch biopsies. It turned out to be a lupus-specific rash called SCLE, the annular form, meaning NOT one of the two listed in the diagnostic criteria. (Only discoid and malar are included in the criteria.) Have...

... dsDNA test entirely than mine was! Therefore I think you best move is to request a copy of your labs. And if there are no reference ranges printed, ask your dr. to provide those ranges. ... (18 replies)
... 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)

Ana positive
Oct 25, 2010
... Hi guys, I have a positive ana test twice now and my doctor wants me to see a rheumathologist. ... (8 replies)
... up at 2in the morning trying to read up on what these results mean. I was hoping that since all of her other bloodwork was within normal ranges, that maybe this ANA result was just a fluke. ... (4 replies)
... Teresacar, You seemingly have a few things going on that unfortunately *probably* don't shout out a single answer. Obviously, I'm just a patient; but based on what I've read & experienced, here are some reasons lupus is so hard to diagnose. * There's no single test (or tests) to prove or disprove lupus. Instead, the systemic form is Dx'ed by meeting at least 4 of 11... (10 replies)
