How do you guys feel about an SS-A and an SS-B of over 500? 537 and 521
 
Can someone interpret those?

Anti-Sjögren’s Syndrome A (Anti-SS-A) (Ro)
Anti-Sjögren’s Syndrome B (Anti-SS-B) (La)

This test is for Sjogren's Syndrome (not sure if that was part of your question).

There is a web-site for Sjogren's . . .www.sjogrens.org/syndrome/diagnosis.html but it doesn't seem to give the values.

I hope this helps. On your lab-sheet, you'll see a range for normal values. . . depending on how the reporting lab is giving the values.

I hope this helps.

Do you have a follow-up Dr. appt???

Blessings!

I have the SSA antibodies and mine is 308, I don't have the SSB antibodies though. My rheumy said that titers don't really make a difference in these antibodies that positive is positive (anything over 120) which is probably why you can't really find anything related to the titers on the internet. SSA and SSB are called Sjogren antibodies however they are seen in Lupus as well. SSB antibodies are more seen with Sjogren's syndrome. Sjogren's can be primary (by itself) but its not uncommon to have secondary Sjogren's to Lupus. Hope this helps a bit.
