Is positive anticardiolipin and positive antidsdna needed for lupus diagnosis? I have positive Ana, WBC 4.20 skin rashes, plus arthritis in joints

Rheumatologist. Anticardiolipin antibodies may not be present in many lupus cases but Ana and antidsdna findings are common. Your findings are consistent with lupus, but the rheumatologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you about diagnosis and treatment.
