... I won't go into my whole history, but briefly here is a little. I'm a 55 Y.O. male who has always had a sunshine sensitivity. Sometimes breaking out in horrible hives and having to stop exercising and taking benedril for the rest of the day. This has occured intermittantly since I was a teenager. I have been having classic migraine with aura for about 10 years and am fatigued... (3 replies)
... and a positive high anti ds dna at 38..I think it said over 9 was considered positive. I have zero symptoms of lupus and am now scared to death I have lupus. Could this mean anything else? ... (9 replies)
... Can someone tell me what a DS (double stranded) Anti-DNA result of <10 means? That's all the info I have. (2 replies)

... I did see my PCP today and he said yelp looks like lupus and that my dna ds was on the upper end of mild level and with all the other testing, lupus is finally showing itself. ... (5 replies)
... Yes , it was the results by crithidia ifa testing. The only other abnormal was the high RNP and Ana of 1:160 speckled pattern over the year. I did have a skin biopsy which showed maybe indication of lupus. Like I said the rheumy just said udct even with the high RNP, but now said probably lupus. So Vee, would a 1:320 dna ds ab like really high when the normal is below 1:10?... (5 replies)
... Hi All, I'm a 26 year old female who has been experiencing achy joints and a weak feeling in my legs for the past few weeks. I went to the doctor who ordered bloodwork, which came back normal except for the following: WBC 11.0 (Normal is 4-10.5) ANA Direct Positive - There was no number provided, it just said Positive Anti-Chromatin Antibodies - 1.8 I was negative...

... Deana, I actually think (but I'm no doctor) that the multiple high anti-ds-DNA tests are saying something important. This is one of the KEY & DEFINITIVE tests done for SLE, after all. You need to get someone to explain why it's NOT being interpreted as lupus, at least in my utterly non-medical mind. To contrast your tests to what mine showed---mine was a trickier... (21 replies)

Please help

... Hi! I was hoping maybe someone could help me here. I'm scared and waiting to hear from the rheumatologist a office to schedule. Very new to all of this. I had some bloodwork done to rule out rheumatoid arthritis and now my dr is referring me to a rheumatologist. The "asap" on the notes is alarming to me. It's difficult to find any actual number values online to see where... (8 replies)
... This is my first post! Hoping you all can help me with your experience & knowledge! So I won't get into the many details, but I've had extreme joint pain & fatigue and had my first visit with a rheumatologist last week. My ANA is a high positive, and it looks like my results are in- Anti-Dna (ds) is just 1 out of 0-9. And my Smith antibodies are 0.3 out of 0.0-0.9. My anti-ssa... (3 replies)
... Hi. Do you have hardcopy of the labs, or were results read over the phone? My lab prints out-of-range vs. in-range values in separate columns. For anti-ds-DNA, my lab uses these ranges, BUT there's no guarantee your lab uses the same. For something this important, I'd ask the doctor for hardcopy. < 25, Negative; 25-34.9, Equivocal; 35-99.9, Weakly Positive; 100-200,... (2 replies)
... Hi. Why not get a copy from your GP of the labs that showed high DNA? Then start a personal file, and maintain it at least while going thru the evaluation process. Then you'd know which kind* of DNA, the value + hopefully the reference range to make sense of the value. (* BTW, anti-double-stranded-DNA is redolent of systemic lupus, whereas anti-single-stranded-DNA suggests... (6 replies)
... Hi. Sorry but I've only seen my own anti-ds-DNA results that look different: straight numbers, no ratios, no method specified. I think your best option is to ask your rheumatologist to explain. But I strongly doubt that "some" elevation "guarantees" future kidney problems, so hang in there on that worry, OK? Also, if your serum BUN and creatine ae normal, and urinalysis... (5 replies)
... Hi. I didn't quite follow your first sentence. Were those the findings for anti-ds-DNA (anti-double-stranded DNA) on a "Crithidia immunofluorescence test"? Crithidia may be an older test with substantial pitfalls; ELISA may be more common today....? (I'm not knowledgeable on the various generations of these tests, so I hope others who know more will comment.) Was anti-RNP... (5 replies)
... Hello Everyone To start at the beginning In sept 2012 had a positive anti dna ds of 18; nucleolar pattern 1:160 homogeneous pattern 1:160 The Rheumatologist says I do not have any of the symptoms and therefore he does not think I have lupus. He thinks the above numbers are on the borderline and may not confirm lupus. I had a hip bursitis which healed after... (1 replies)
... I had tons of blood work and I think they are all ok except for two. The anti dna ds test came back as 4. ... (0 replies)
... Just got back on the computer and printed my lab results. Rheumy did not do a ANA, but instead it was an anti-DNA (DS)Ab Qn and that was <1. He did anti RNP, Smith (ENA)Ab, Antiscleroderma-70 antibodies, Sjorgrens anti-SS-A and anti-SS-B, Antichromatin antibodies, Jo1 Ab, Centromere B Antibodies. Like I said in the previous post, all have a range of 0-9 and mine results... (14 replies)
Lab Results

... Thank you so much Vee for taking the time to answer my question. :angel:I am sooo frustrated, and your words were like a (((hug))). I have an appointment with a very good Rheumatologist, but it isn't until April. He has a long waiting list. :( The only labs that my doc did were the Anti DNA ds and Sm/RNP Antibody. She wouldn't even have ordered that if I hadn't asked. She... (6 replies)

My titer was 1:80 and speckled. Have numerous symptoms like Lupus and was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 99. Had a handle on that but this last year the fatigue, aches and pains, brain fog,...

WHat happened to send me to the GP first of all was, I ran a fever for 5 straight days with no other symptoms, once the fever broke in the middle of the night I woke up with this weird rash all over my body and my hands wore swollen and stiff, went to the DR and he tells me he has never seen a rash that looked like that!
