... I have an appt. to get a second opinion for my infertility next month and I will bring all this up with him as well. Hopefully he'll agree to test me for the antiphospholipid antibody syndrome. Is this just 1 blood test? ... (6 replies)

... Good morning. This sounds very frustrating, as many of us here have likewise experienced...! Have you read the diagnostic criteria for lupus? You may find the 11 in one of the "sticky posts" above the user threads. Generally, but not always, you must meet at least 4 to sustain a diagnosis of SLE. They should be considered "permanent", i.e., envision checking each off, once... (2 replies)

... and the pattern just show how strong the antibodies are and what part of the cells the antibodies are attacking. Some people test positive even when they don't have an autoimmune disease if they're fighting off certain infections. ... (6 replies)
... DNA with a negative ANA. Just to note, you can still have children if you have APLS, they don't all end in miscarriages. A miscarriage is just a red flag to test for this. I never understood why people who miscarry, aren't automatically tested for this. ... (6 replies)
Ds DNA @ titer 20
Oct 26, 2012
... Hi. Apparently anti-ds-DNA can vacillate: it can be higher just before, or at the start of, flares; and once it turns positive, it stays positive. I don't know that it's a titer test, though (sorry), you'd have to ask. Unfortunately, if the reference range on the report says >10 is positive, then >20 appears to be solidly positive, but you should confirm with someone familiar... (3 replies)

... Hello, I had a simular experience with my GP. He ran an 'ana' and it was negative, but I still had alot of other symptoms, so he sent me to an RA Dr. He also ran an 'ana' and other test. IT came back positive. He did tell me I had FM and could or couldnt say if I had 'lupus'. All my first BW like DNA DS, SS-A and SS-B for Sjogren's was (-). I too have alot of the... (2 replies)

... Hold onto those test results for dear life! My doctors didn't tell me about a positive result I had years ago. Mine was 151, hardly a low positive but I had no idea!! ... (6 replies)
... I just got some blood test results and am confused. I have a negative ANA but a positive DS DNA test. I read that the DS DNA is highly specific for Lupus, but that you should have a positive ANA test, also. I also had low RBC and Hematocrit. Thoughts? ... (6 replies)
... Melissa, very *high* anti-ds-DNA points strongly to lupus, but *slight* elevations are possible in some other conditions. In fact, a very high finding would fulfill one of the 11 ACR criteria. But without the reference range, it's impossible to tell how high yours is; so when you discuss your findings with your doctor, you should ask for the range & ask how high he/she deems... (5 replies)
... Hi. Do you have hardcopy of the labs, or were results read over the phone? My lab prints out-of-range vs. in-range values in separate columns. For anti-ds-DNA, my lab uses these ranges, BUT there's no guarantee your lab uses the same. For something this important, I'd ask the doctor for hardcopy. < 25, Negative; 25-34.9, Equivocal; 35-99.9, Weakly Positive; 100-200,... (2 replies)

Anti ds-dna ase
Oct 21, 2003
... I remember having a blood test done a while ago when I was being worked up for something else, and the test said something about being positive for anti ds-DNA ase, and I know this is an antinuclear antibody, but does it mean that I'm going to get lupus at some time in my life? Or does it just mean that I had inflammation or something? My aunt has lupus, scleroderma, and... (1 replies)

... Lori, Where lupus is a possibility, I think elevated B.U.N. and creatine in bloodwork are signs kidneys aren't filtering properly. (I just reread your original post & realized you said those values were NOT QUITE out of range.) And urinalysis includes checks for "urine casts" and for protein in the urine, which are also signs of abnormal kidney function. Have they... (6 replies)
