Hi to you all I'm new and hoping that you may be able to help, I went to doctors in April with lots of symptoms of lupus and doctor requested ANA bloods etc. The results came back as 1:1600 with homogeneous pattern and a DNA binding autoantibodies reading of 1IU/ml <9 and he explained to me that he thought that I had lupus and referee me to a rhumatologist. He has ran the test a further 2 times and they have come back the same , I went to see him yesterday and he told me that the high ANA was nothing to worry about I hadn't got lupus and to carry on taking naproxen " if that helps" and he doesn't need to see me again! Does anyone think that I need to see a new doctor I think I do but I'm concerned that I'm just wasting people's time but on the same grounds why did my doctor think I had it ? I have been back to see my doctor and his answer to me was " well I would have thought you would be pleased you haven't got it" I'm so confused any advice fearfully recieved
