Thanks, that is helpful. The "positive" dsDNA test was not highly elevated, so I suspect they will just retest it later on. The reference range (normal) at this lab would have been <39.2 and my level was 54.95, which they classified as {H} and "positive". Seems to me that this is not real high though, and probably falls in the borderline area? I have some of the other diagnostic criteria, but not sure exactly where I would fall in there... It was actually a podiatrist who did the blood tests - how important would it be for me to see a rheumatologist at this point?
Thanks again!
