good dr

HI ALL HAVE JUST HAD A VERY NICE DR WHO I HAVE NOT SEEN BEFORE RING ME TO GIVE ME MY ANA RESULTS I WAS EXPECTING THEM FOR AWHILE YET.

he told me that my level was elevated from the 18 that i had before to 24 i don't know whether this is considered to be a high level anyway my rheumy appointment is being brought forward, i was admitted to hospital last week because i was feeling poorly and my eyesight had gone weird plus rash on my legs. the things we have to go through.

thanks for listening or rather reading

  • Hi - sorry you are so poorly. Are you sure it was ANA rather than rheumatoid factor, ESR or CRP? I ask because I know that these all show in this way whereas my ANA was elevated at 1:320 recently and I think it's usually broken into two numbers - could be wrong about this as I'm not very knowledgeable about ANA yet but it seems there is ANA which is very non specific and then ENA profile which is the more relevant one to diagnoses. Have you been diagnosed with Lupus already or are you waiting? Good that your appointment is being brought forward. Best of luck. Twitchy
