Here goes. all my bloods are fine, for Lupus but I have a positive ANA at 1 in 400. the gastroenterologist says that it is non specific and that a lot of women have this!
well, i understand about all this 'false positive' stuff, when you are a healthy specimen etc and the other way round, never testing pos when you are sick as a parrot.
I am the latter, sick as a parrot and already diagnosed with sjogrens and he can say it means nothing, my Ana is raised more than it is not! or at least 50/50 very few bloods have been taken and it is usually raised.
Anyone have any opinions, espec this one of its not unusual in women!
I am well past the menopause, it has paused...actually ceased!!
