... Im so very confused also as ive got a negative ANA but consistently high positive anti DSDNA and positive chromatin both specific to SLE. ... (5 replies)
... First let me say I am sorry you have been sick for so long without having been tested for lupus long ago. It's quite common for ANA to fluctuate between positive and negative, which invariably causes confusion, sometimes even for the Dr. ... (5 replies)
... I'm new to the whole lupus/MCTD thing, but I recently had a ANA panel done with ELISA and all of that and I tested positive for ANA & Anti-DsDNA, as well as extremely low vitamin d, low red blood cells, low hemoglobin, & elevated platelets. My doctor really suspects of me having lupus because of all of my symptoms and I have at least 7/11 of the diagnosis criteria, but she... (5 replies)

Negative ANA
Nov 28, 2017
... Hello, all! I wanted to come here and see if anyone has any insight into what could be going on with me :). My ANA came back negative, but my primary dr had also ran a dsDNA test which came back at 276 IU/ml. He says heís not worried about that because the range my lab gave was 200-300 borderline for antibodies to dsDNA, 300-800 moderately positive, and over 800 as virtually... (0 replies)

... Kooze, since you are just getting diagnosed and have not started any treatment, it's normal to feel frightened and just want to escape the reality of having a chronic illness. Unfortunately it will not just go away, but you can feel better in time with appropriate treatment. The meds used to treat SLE take some time to work, and a combination may be needed depending on how you... (1 replies)
... Hi everyone, I'm new, 42 years old from Australia. The last few months have been a roller coaster. Resulting in a diagnosis of SLE and lymphocytic vasculitis. ANA speckled 1:320 first test 1:80 speckled second test Positive biopsy for facial rash as lymphocytic vasculitis Anti dsDNA positive C3 high reading C4 low Urinalysis trace blood and low specific gravity...

... I'll mention it to one of my doctors! My neurologist originally wanted to prescribe it to me for my migaines but I'm allergic to NSAID's so he didn't. I've been in so much pain, I decided to risk an allergic reaction & have been taking naproxen and so far, haven't had any adverse reactions. I'm just nervous about taking more of it because i'm worried about an allergic... (5 replies)
... I do hope you get an appointment soon. If you are not on rx naproxen, you might ask your pcp for it. Since it is helping some, the rx dose is more than double the OTC dose, and insurance may cover the rx cost. It's 500 mg twice a day instead of the 220mg you get OTC. Please keep us posted on your progress. (5 replies)
... thank you so much for replying! I have been put on the cancellation list & my PCP did mention she would call and see if I can get in quicker, but every time she has done so it hasn't helped much. I've been taking naproxen which helps somewhat, but not a lot unfortunately. It is definitely a relief finally getting answers, because I had always suspected lupus but no doctor ever... (5 replies)
... opinions on what a borderline positive dsDNA test might mean in my case. I don't have a diagnosis yet. ... (6 replies)
... I'm New here and hoping someone can help me out. I had my blood results come back with a Positive ANA and Positive dsDNA. I don't see a number for the ANA but the dsDNA shows 19. ... (3 replies)
... Docs cannot figure out what is going on. Positive dsdna and negative ANA. I have pain in my arms that feels like my arms are on fire!! ... (18 replies)
... My Rheumatologist says that he wants to monitor me every 6 months to a year because my dsDNA is positive. ... (7 replies)
... I have none of the 11 symptoms you listed, maybe I have one since my dsDNA is positive. That's why I'm so puzzled. ... (7 replies)
... Your next set of blood tests will be helpful. The photos of your red arms and chest area are significant and should be shown to your Dr. It is possible a skin biopsy with immunofluorescent studies would be helpful for diagnosis. The rashes of lupus are so varied, and sometimes they are only a "blush" of redness or red splotchy spots like on your chest. The immunofluorescent... (6 replies)
... Hi & welcome. Rheumatologists use a set of 11 criteria established by the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) to assess patients for lupus. You may find the criteria in one of the "sticky posts" (permanent info posts) located aright bove the user threads. Generally, but not always, you must meet 4 or more to sustain the diagnosis; but they don't have to be met... (3 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)
... Thanks Vee! I was reading all of the pinned posts for a week before I joined as a member. I had high cholesterol, but all of my bloodwork and urinalysis results were normal except for the ANA and dsDNA. Quest has any dsDNA below 10 IU/mL as negative, and above that is posetive. Of course that's all subjective. At first, I didn't see how I could have lupus because I just... (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...
