High ANA Level (1:1280) but normal homocystine (9.25)
I am hoping someone can shed some light on my questions. I was dx'd with MTHFR in 2009 after the first pregnancy loss. Further testing showed that my ANA level was 1:640 in February 2009, then in November 2009 it jumpted to 1:1280. My homocystine level was around 10.7 (normal, but my OB says it's slightly elevated) in Feb of 2009 as well. In December of 2009 my homocystine level went down to 9.25.
I have been to a rhumatologist and a hematologist and neither can give me an answer as to why my ANA is so elevated? I have been tested for Lupus, RA, Thyroid disease, etc...but they are all negative. I also have a folic acid deficiency. I feel fine, but it upsets me that after all the research I have done, the doctors (nor I) can find an answer. The Rhumatologist informed me that even though I tested for a high ANA level and my results show no AI disease, that I still have to be categorized in that level?
Has anyone else had this issue?? Any help or comments would be greatly appreciated!
