Anti Double Stranded Dna
My double stranded DNA is 6 which is "indeterminate" what does "indeterminate" mean when it comes to this test?
Hard to say: The results need to be evaluated in the context of the clinical picture. What symptoms led to the test being ordered in the first place?
Lupus.: Systemic lupus erythematosus can be associated with dsdna antibodies, although these can be seen with other autoimmune disorder of overlap.
Just diagnosed with lupus due to double stranded dna. My ch50 was 350 though. Usually this is low in lupus. What could this mean?
See rheumatologist: Serologic lab results in patients suspected as having lupus can be tricky to interpret. If you have not done so already, see a rheumatologist for a full evaluation. He/she can review your entire picture including the history and physical and can discuss the significance of the various lab tests.
Hello. I have a positive double stranded DNA test result (anti-dna (ds) ab qn of 29 with positive being above 9. Ana is negative, what can this mean?
Abnormal tests: Best to discuss this question with the doctor ordering your tests.
Would bloods for autoimmune screen ANA double stranded DNA ENA anca still show positive if there had been an autoimmune response even 6 years ago?
See below: You also have to take in account that these panels frequently have false positives and assays vary from lab to lab. It is has been estimated that up 30% of all anas drawn are false positives. Only your doctor or your rheumatologist can interpret these results in context with your history and symptoms.See 1 more doctor answer

I had a positive ana, double stranded dna, and I believe smith's antibodies. I also had a butterfly rash at the time. Besides lupus, what could it be?
Probably Lupus: A butterfly rash is often seen with lupus, but could also been seen with vitamin deficiency disorders like pellagra or connective tissue disases like dermatomyositis. However, the positive ANA and smith's antibodies most likely indicate it is lupus. You should see your physician to be properly diagnosed.See 1 more doctor answer

Specificity: Nuclear antibodies are antibodies directed against the contents of the nucleus of the human cell. There are several types of nuclear antibodies including those directed against histone, chromatin, nuclear proteins, RNA and double stranded dna. Ds dna is specifically associated with systemic lupus erythematosus.
Incomplete info: About the only blood test that specifically refers to double stranded DNA is a test for antibody to double stranded DNA and is a marker for systemic lupus. By itself it is not diagnostic of lupus. If lupus is a consideration, you may consult this site: http://lupusresearchinstitute. Org/lupus-facts/lupus-diagnosis For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats.

Sle: You most probably have lupus but I would try to go see a specialist make sure.
