It is impossible to answer your question because you do not present your pertinent medical history such as symptoms, signs, current illness(es) and medication(s). We can't make the diagnosis base on these lab results which are abnormal but relatively nonspecific.

It is possible that you have lupus. Visit this site for information and it would be prudent to consult a rheumatologist. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/18634076/
