Need more data : This will depend on more information that I have at this point. then ANA could be negative if only a binding essay was used rather than an immunofluorescent assay. You may fulfill criteria for lupus anticoagulant . You will need to have your physician clarify these tests which Lab did them and how accurate they are.
