Dsdna negative
May 27, 2004
... Hello Everyone, My question is this my dsdna came back today negative less than 1:10, my ANA was positive 1:320 nucleolar pattern with anti-RNA, anti-RNP, and 4-6sRNA.

Still waiting ...

... plus i think the doctor maybe agrees its possibly lupus cos he ordered DsDNA and ANA tests the second time, rather than just ANA. Could someone tell me what a positive result for both of these are? ... (2 replies)
... I don't think that is considered high or low. I have a rheumie appt on Wednesday and I'm almost positive I will land in "maybe" land. ... (12 replies)
... So I have read your post and it sounds so much like me. I to have Crohns but I have almost every Lupus symptom and have had a positive ana. The rhemotologist seems to blame my Crohns rather than looking into lupus. Lupus and Crohns are known to be linked. ... (12 replies)
... not neccessarily. A small percentage of healthy young people have positive ana results without ever becoming ill with anything. ... (1 replies)
... Hi. One reason that rheumatologists don't move as quickly as we might expect is that they usually use the ACR criteria in evaluating for lupus. If you haven't read them yet, look for them in the "sticky posts" (permanent info posts). All "stickies" are located above the user threads. Generally---but not always---you must meet 4 or more of the 11 to sustain a dx of systemic... (8 replies)

... HLA's are human leukocyte antigens.. HLA b27 is more specifically checked for ankylosing spondylitis but can be positive in other auto immunes. There are other HLA markers for others but b27 is the one I hear most spoken of. ... (28 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...

... I would look at all other tests that were done, and be sure a complete workup has been done. You should have a CBC, urine, sed rate, CRP, chemistry panel, anti-Smith and anti-RNP antibodies, anti-phospholipid antibodies, plus complement levels. If any of those are missing, I would ask that they be run now to expedite getting a diagnosis and starting treatment so you can begin... (8 replies)
... Most people with Lupus will have a positive ANA, doesn't necessarily mean they have it because there are many diseases that will give you a positive ANA. That is why the other blood tests are ordered. The dsDNA or the antiSM is most always present with Lupus. Those cannot be ignored by a rheumatologist. ... (18 replies)
... I should have said that "positive" doesn't necessarily mean out of range, so check the reference range for the lab. A positive ANA might be just 1:40 which is neither here nor there. Make a list of all your health problems leaving nothing out even if you think it has no bearing. Check the ACR criteria and the Alternative Criteria lists. Also health history of close family...

... my daughter started this crazy autoimmune journey about 4 years ago at the age of 16. (atleast thats when we realized her years of "weirdness" were actually SOMETHING)After some strange knots and rashes and being hospitalized and put on rocephin and bactrum only to spike a temp of 105 and develop a bright red rash from head to toe she was referred to a rheumatologist. She had... (10 replies)
