How about Ana screen positive, Ana titer (ifa) 1:80 Hi, and pattern speckled?

In brief: How about it?

Up to a quarter of women your age have an ANA (immunofluorescent antibody) at a low titer like yours with a speckled pattern.
If there's a question of whether you have lupus or one of its relatives, it's a piece of information to note and file for future reference. A negative ANA would rule several things out. Your result proves nothing positive. Best wishes.
