Ana positive c3c low and low phosphate no symptoms of anything does this mean lupus or since ANA was nucleolar scleroderma or not necessarily auto immune issue?

In brief: Why the test?

If you don't have symptoms of anything, why did you have the test in the first place? Tests should be ordered when there is a reasonable suspicion of disease through the questioning and physical examination.
Having a positive ANA alone means nothing.

In brief: Immunity

Our immune systems are aways fluctuating and also vary between individuals.
A positive ANA without symptoms means nothing. A certain percent of the normal human population generate autoantibodies such as the ANA without having an autoimmune disease. This test show never be done for "screening," but rather, only done to verify a suspected autoimmune disease.
