Blood test results (ANA and DSDNA)

mkatemkate Member New Member
i was recently diagnosed with SLE.
My blood results show an ANA of 1280 and DSdna of 270. My rheumatologist mentioned that my results are quite high but I forgot to ask what is considered normal vs a high or mid range result....

what are other people’s results?

    I’d be keen to know the answer to this also. I had a positive test for ANA and going for my DSDNA blood test this morning so I should get my results back in a few days. 😢 I have also had a positive biopsy taken from my face which suggests lupus so I’m expecting a diagnosis for SLE.  😥 I also won’t understand how to interpret my results so hopefully someone can help us.

    Hi there. I too had an ANA test done around the time I was diagnosed. My doctor didnt tell me how high my ANAs were but she said they were elevated. Also when I was pregnant with my daughter before I was diagnosed, I was tested for Hiv and aids because its pretty routine with pregnancies to be tested and out of the three tests they did one was positive but of course they told me i did not have hiv or aids. Im wondering if the stress from the pregnancy caused a flare up which in turn caused that test to be positive. Its the only thing that makes sense because I was diagnosed with lupus 4 years after I had my daughter.
