My ana was 1:160 and it was enough to gain attention from my DR ( that was 4 years ago). I recently met with my DR and he actually told me that many docs do not take ANA into consideration when diagnosing Lupus because ANA is so unreliable. He said that it can change (go from pos to neg) he said he treats patients usually based on past ANA test and also current symptoms that they have.
Hope that helps.
