What does high RNP antibodies mean?

I had another ana done last week and it was positive again. I had one about a month or so ago and it was positive (ANA Direct), on this one, it also showed antibodies, RNP Antibodies normal results are 0.0 - 0.9 and mine was 7.3 high. I looked in the above posts and couldn't find anything on the RNP. My anti-dna (ds) was normal, so was smith antibodies and Sjogren's Anti−SS−A and Sjogren's Anti−SS−B. Could the RNP indicate Lupus or positively indicate auto-immune disease. I do have the symptoms w/out question. My doctor hasn't seen the results since I ordered them online. I have no idea what this means.
