Anti ds-dna ase
Oct 21, 2003
... I remember having a blood test done a while ago when I was being worked up for something else, and the test said something about being positive for anti ds-DNA ase, and I know this is an antinuclear antibody, but does it mean that I'm going to get lupus at some time in my life? Or does it just mean that I had inflammation or something? My aunt has lupus, scleroderma, and... (1 replies)

... I will be extremely interested to see what the rheumie tells you. I too have suffered the same symptoms as you for two years, including a persistent rash. I had my rheumie appointment about two months ago and had a positive ANA at 1:320 with similar results as you.

... Deena, hi, again. I shed hair when flaring: breakage along hairline & generalized loss. I wear wide-brimmed hats of tight weave, good block, avoid midday sun, and take Plaquenil. (That's a first-tier drug appropriate for patients whose major organs are NOT under attack.) The ACR criteria are quite hard to fathom, even for some doctors. My local drs., including... (6 replies)
... Deena, Welcome! I'm just a patient, but NOT being photosensitive does NOT rule out lupus, based on what I've read. Speaking of reading, there are two excellent lupus hardcovers in most libraries & bookstores. Look for Dr. Daniel Wallace &/or Dr. Robert Lahita. Have you read the sticky posts (permanent info posts) at the top of the thread list? One of them contains the... (6 replies)

... Your bloodwork eerily resembles mine, as does your lack of a regular cycle, about two years prior to my sle DX.
