ANA 1:80

I've had a few connective tissue/autoimmune symptoms for the past 6 months.

My ANA has been positive at 1:80 for the past 3 tests (over 3 years). CRP and Rheumatoid Factor all normal.

It's been suggested I might have undifferentiated connective tissue disease (http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/334482-overview).

The diagnostic criteria states-

"....In order to fulfill the criteria for UCTD, antinuclear antibodies must be present, along with a disease duration of at least 3 years"

At 1:80 is this considered 'present'?

Thanks.
