Hello everyone!
I'm new to the forum!  Woo-hoo!
I have had JRA since age 2 (I'm 42 now) and now have Lupus.  My doctor's office called and said I have an ANA of "1.6" but after researching,  I don't know what that means.  Does anyone have a doctor who uses this verbage and if so, does it mean 1:160 or 1:640?  I have put in a call to the office for clarification, but probably won't hear before Monday.  However, this is the kind of thing that weighs on my mind if I don't figure it out!!
Just curious and would appreciate any help or advice!!

Once in a while someone will come along with strange numbers like that, but I don't know if we've ever figured out how that relates to the normal titer measurements usually reported.

Try not to worry about it -- it won't change between now and Monday, and it isn't something that will hurt you between now and then. Patience is our friend!
