Re: sorry if off topic

Blue is correct about neg and positive ANA. I would like to just add, that your ANA can be positive one time and negative the next and vice versa. Also they use to do an ANA test with titers, which would tell you what you tested more positive for, like lupus or scleroderma etc. I don't know if they test in titers anymore. My rheumy doesn't, it is some other test that is suppose to be more accurate. Of course once they test in titers I guess they don't need that specific of info again.
