Need Help understanding my ANA test results
Hello, I went to a derm because I had noticed hair loss. I am a 39 year old female. My ANA came back 1:80 titer homogeneous. My Vit D was low @ 26 and triglyerides 153. I noticed that on the lab's own chart it shows 1:40-1:80 is considered low and anything greater than 1:80 is considered high. However, the lab still marked my level as "High". Researching on the internet I've seen different 1:80 noted as negative, low and high. So which is it? I have no other symptoms. No rashes, no joint pains. So all this is a surprise to me. Can this be a false positive? I had been put on Levaquin for 14 days a couple of months ago for diverticulitis. My blood work was done on June 13. Can this cause a false positive, drug induced autoimmune diesease or hair loss? I am so confused, scared and seems like I cannot get any solid answers. My internal med doctor says I don't have the appearance of someone with lupus. He also pressed on my joints and I had no pain what so ever. So what does this all mean? I appreciate any information you can provide. Thank you.
