Pages: 1 2 3 Showing 1 - 20 of 60 for high ana titers. (0.009 seconds)


... I think 1/80 is considered a "low -positive". Mine was high - 1/10240 I'm not sure where "high" starts though. Also ANA titers are doubled; 1/80, 1/160, 1/320, 1/640, 1/1280, 1/2560, 1/5120, 1/10240 etc.... Remember that an ANA test is only one test; there are many other tests to diagnose an auto-immune disease. Good luck. (3 replies)
