Lupus Tests Back - Questions

Hello all,

So we have tests back. The only things that were positive were the Anti-Histone which was extremely high and then the Avise CTD test showed this below:

Ana IgG 25 units (normal <20)
HEp-2 cell Fluorescence Titer: 1:256 (normal <1:80)
CB-CAP: BC4d - B-lymphocyte-bound C4d -172 Net MFI (normal <61)

Doctors diagnosis because its a male 46yo, sudden onset and taking Hydralazine that is it both DILE and SLE....which he said he has never seen before. All others on the Avise tests are negative (Anti-dsDNA IgG, Anti Smith IgG, Erythoyte C4d, Anti-SSA Ro, SSB La etc all negative).

Not sure what to make of this. Thoughts anyone??
