Re: Blood Labs strangly stated? By percentages?
Hi. To me, these seem like footnotes to remind physicians to which condition various autoantibodies correlate, and how often each is seen in that condition.
Your first example may mean that 40% to 60% of people with SLE, at some time in the course of their disease, test positive for anti-ds-DNA.
Your second example about neo-natal lupus probably means that some antibody is seen in 100% of cases. (My guess would be anti-Ro.) What neo-natal lupus is: some babies are actually born lupus, passed to the infant across the placenta.
But where your "absolute" test values are, gee, good question! Very weird. Are any pages missing?
This is guesswork on my part, but I've also had labs that contained this sort of autoantibody statistics on the final page(s). I hope you can somehow locate your REAL results. Bye, Vee
