Post anti-DNA antibody

Can anyone tell me what this test means --my ana was 1.360 but I also have Hashimoto's --(thyroid autoimmune disease)--anyway my doctor did some further testing and my anti-DNA 0-99 normal range--mine was 68 what does this mean --I don't think I have lupus but should it be 0?

A high ANA indicates inflammation in the body. Your anti-dna is within the normal range. It's indicating that you do not have lupus. That is basically a genetic test for lupus. Mine happens to be positive now, but years ago it was negative. Maybe it just needs to be watched. Can't offer anything further medically, I just don't know.
