Re: double stranded dna test
Your first question: I think there are two different measuring systems for ANA. (1) The first is a simple ratio, like the 1:40 you mentioned. I *think* some experts consider 1:30 (and above) to be high. (2) In the second measuring system, the number doubles for each dilution. Examples: 1:80, 1:160, 1:320, 1:640, 1:1280, etc. I *think* some experts consider 1:1280 (and above) to be high.
Your second question, on anti-ds-DNA levels: I'm sorry but I've never seen what's considered high.
Did you get your results back yet? Hang in there! Sincerely, Vee
