Re: ANA normalizing

My 10 yr old son has AIH and has had a positive ANA since last year. His blood tests in August show his ANA is now negative as well as his smooth muscle is barely above normal now too. I have read that many people say that when they arent having a flare or are in a remission that the titers can come back negative. I believe some docs do antibody tests as well as other labs depending on the illness to watch for flare ups.... hope that may help you some. Mfife31
