... malar rash, but since dsdna is close to complements level and not "off the chart" I have no diagnosis and no treatment still. ... (11 replies)
... What I can say is with positive lyme tests is its good they treat that first, and see what happens from there. I know lyme can cause positive ANA, I dont know about dsdna though. ... (4 replies)
... Hi and welcome. This certainly sounds like an acute onset of something. With your current lab results, without exact numbers, it is premature to speculate. But your RA is negative. Your ANA and anti-dsDNA being + would raise suspicion of lupus, but how highly + would be very helpful to know. It can come on very acuteful and make on feel miserable, like you describe. Fatigue is... (4 replies)

... Im not sure if the complements were by bioplex, just the dsdna test I know for sure was for me in at least one instance, maybe two. ... (11 replies)
... although outside of the standard deviations is probably a positive, but its not insanely high. Anything with a positive value will read high on labwork. ... (11 replies)
... negative lupus, meaning their ANA never turns positive in spite of obvious and long term symptoms. ... (12 replies)
... I have lupus with possible ra. It's been a tough year. I lost my job and all my great doctors. I had to start the "doctor search" all over. It's been awful!!! I've been to a terrible rheumy that made me cry every time I saw him(3) times I just switched and found a new one. Fingers crossed this one will make me feel better. In order to see him I had to switch my PCP ... (0 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)
... 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)
... Mari, my anti-ds-DNA is likewise measured in IU/ml, but what gives it additional meaning: my labs include a footnote that parses the range. Here's my lab's footnote for anti-ds-DNA: < 25 = negative 25 - 34.9 = equivocal 35 - 99.9 = weak positive 100 - 200 = positive > 200 = strong positive Based on that, I still suspect that it's possible that a reading of 13 could be...

... y little "tiff" with the Rheum here in PA I called up my previous one and let him know what she had said. He had said that with SLE it is normal for the ANA and dsDNA to go back and forth and she should have relied more on my history. I also had asked this to other doctors and they said the same. ...

... Hi Ladybud! Thank you so much for your reply. I will update my post once I know what the DR is going to do. I sure hope he starts me on meds. I'm so tired of feeling like this. I know the meds wont take it all away but I hope it helps a little. At this point, every little bit helps, right :) Hope you have a wonderful day. (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)
... 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)
