I'm new. My ANA is 1:320, but none of the antibodies show up (such as SSA, DS-DNA, etc.) and my doctor says it is probably due to the inflammation in my gut causing a secondary lupus-like syndrome. Is this possible? Can a Lupus-like syndrome be caused by inflammation in a specific spot in the body (such as the small intestine)?
