... I've been scouring these boards since first getting diagnosed by my local PCP's office (including a rheumatologist) with having LUPUS and have found a tremendous amount of valuable information here and hopefully someone can provide me with some insight. After my diagnosis, I decided to go to a major hospital in the area that had an area dedicated to LUPUS for ongoing... (6 replies)
... is considered low positive but can be positive in several conditions, lupus and others. It is very helpful that the other antibodies will be tested, as they are more specific to point to a given diagnosis. ... (1 replies)
... It seems that the lad has emailed me my blood work results before I have seen the dr. Can someone please help me understand it? From what I have read it seems to refer to Lupus. I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis in 2009 and have been on Humira and Methotrexate. I stopped taking them in Feb 2016 because I lost my insurance due to a job loss. I moved to another state and... (1 replies)

... Thank you, Ladybud! That's how I felt about the dsDNA test results. I'm encouraged that my rheumatologist said he will monitor me closely due to high ANA. ... (9 replies)

... my symptoms, and my blood work from ER and Urgent Care. She said that there's stuff that catches her eye, but it's not enough for her to bite into. She said my dsDNA antibody from Urgent Care was positive and that tends to go with Lupus. However, she wanted to run more blood work. ... (20 replies)
... My doctors have suspected lupus for years but my results always came back indeterminate. I think this is the first time my dsDNA index came back positive. Unless the dsDNA index is directly related to the dsDNA result? ... (20 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...

... now. My MD and I are treating my post menopause insomnia and I'm hoping that will stabilize my immune system a bit. I was truly gobsmacked to read the ANA and dsDNA results. ... (18 replies)
... dsDNA is specific for lupus, so with that said, one positive test result doesn't make a diagnosis. This antibody is associated with kidney manifestations of lupus, so watching the urine may prove helpful. ... (18 replies)
... 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)
