Until someone with more knowledge of these tests comes along, you can read about them here:

The site Ides mentioned is a great one, there is also some really good information about the antinuclear antibodies (ANA) and Nuclear Antigens in the Lupus Resources link in my signature below.

Let us know if you have more questions after you check these sites out!

Hi Ang,

The test results always have a "normal range" given next to your actual reading. These normal values vary from lab to lab . . . so they are pretty important when comparing numbers.

A rheumatologist would be the best one to piece the puzzle for you. Not sure what type of doctor you are working with. I hope you find some good info at Labtestsonline.

Do you have any other questions???

Blessings!
