Hi Tulip, my names carol, I don't think we've met I'm out of town until tomorrow. Anyway sadly that new ANA of yours does not nessesarily mean you are getting better. People have lupus that dont always have a possitive ANA. All that means is you may not be in a flare right now. My ANA is 1:2560 the past 2 times is was taken. once I felt like crap and the next time I felt good but it didn't change. You'll find that peoples ANA are all over the board. It's only one of many test to give you a diagnosis. That's why you can't go by ANA alone. I hope this helps a little and I look forward to getting to know you
