An "ana" is a blood test used to screen a person for the possibility of several autoimmune diseases. It is important to remember that this is a screening test and a positive result only indicates more testing may be warranted. No blood test is perfect, and getting to a diagnosis is usually much more complex than drawing blood and looking at a number ...Read more

Positive Ana and dsdna. Retest showed neg ana and dsdna, but low c4. What does the low c4 mean? Were first results false positive?
Complex: sample handling, timing and transport are important, the process is delicate and constitutes multiple steps at different temperatures, and the results are interpreted in context with the clinical picture, just ask your doctor / rheumatologist for interpretation, if just suspicion, observation and follow up are the way to go for many clinicians, wish you wellness ...Read more

Pos auto ab tests: You are describing positive tests for auto antibodies. The differential diagnosis can be extensive. I am assuming a rheumatologist has ordered these tests? You need f/u with them to educate you what they mean, what further tests may need to be done and review your symptoms. Proper rheum DX is not based only on test results, but exam findings and symptoms of patient. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What do these mean? lupus anticoagulant weakly present at 1.30; positive ANA Test 1:40 speckled pattern; negative anticardioliptin and beta2
Not much: A weakly present lupus anticoagulant and an ANA of 1:40 are common in the general population, and usually not an indication of an autoimmune disorder. You should visit with the physician who ordered these tests to review them with you however. A test alone does not give any answers. Doctors will need both a patient's history and tests to determine further management. ...Read more
