In brief: See below

Lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the test is usually in the best position to do that.
The information you provided suggests scleroderma/crest. See this site for more info and discuss with your doctor. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/scleroderma/ds00362.

Although the information provided does suggest limited cutaneous systemic sclerosis ( or "CREST syndrome") it is important to remember that the ANA is not specific to this and can also be seen in rheumatoid arthritis, with certain medications or infections, or even in otherwise healthy people.
