I am curious...are you having any symptoms of lupus? I'm not being disrespectful to your mid-wife but I wonder what prompted her to test you ana to begin with!? I'm not sure about the numbers you mentioned, there are people here who will come along and be able to explain about the ana. I thought the ana was expressed in ratios. I have lupus with a negative ANA, so i've never really looked into it.
It is entirely possible to have an elevated ANA without any disease process. Again, if you are symptomatic...it's a different story. Keep an eye on this thread, someone smarter than me will come along!!! Judy
