What does a positive ANA 1:160 with speckled pattern mean?

In brief: Not much by itself

An ANA of 1:160 is a low titter and can be seen in healthy people.
The speckled pattern is commonly associated with lupus but is not enough to make a diagnosis especially when the titer is very low. Your doctor should look at all that is going on and help to determine if i is meaningful.
