I have seen this: While the +ANA is suggestive of SLE there can be other causes - other connective tissue disease, autoimmune thyroid disease, auto immune hepatitis to name some.

Decoupling: Allergic illness occur when allergens activate mast cells releasing biochemicals. Allergens interact with mast cells through ige antibodies attached to mast cell receptors. Each ige antibody is specific for an allergen. Ige lasts for months but ultimately degrades & must be replaced. Anti-ige blocks the replacement process. Mast cells become denuded of ige & can no longer respond to allergens. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
