Hi there, I have sjögrens syndrome and mild lupus but my double strand DNA was neg, my ANA was 1:640 with speckled pattern. How can it be mild lupus?

Questionable: No one knows what lupus really is, so it's defined in terms of a checklist. A certain total number of findings allows the diagnosis to be made. The real question is, "do we treat, and if so, how? " good luck -- sjogren's alone is quite a challenge, and often runs with lupus or lupus-like illness and gives its own positive ana. ...Read more

Hi, I'm worried about Lupus. Waiting to see specialist. Double Strand DNA is 5, noted as indeterminate. ANA is 1:640. And eGFR is 85. Joint pain.

Lupus is possible.: The specialist will be able to help you to see if your symptoms, in combination with that blood test results, would be consistent with lupus. Lupus is a rather nebulous diagnosis, with many nonspecific symptoms in combination. Joint pain alone does not give us that diagnosis, and blood testing is not considered diagnostic but more circumstantial. ...Read more
