How long for ANA results?

I had my third ANA test done over a week ago and have yet to get results. This is similar to my first test, which was quite high. My second test had the same result yet took only two days to get the report. That was two years ago.

I was looking at old results recently and noticed the marked difference in doing the tests. I am pretty sure the lab does this one daily. I am mostly curious about this because I was told the first time it sometimes takes awhile. But after noticing a two day turn around, I am really wondering why there is such a delay.

Re: How long for ANA results?

ANA's usually only tae as long as normal labs to be done. It didn't take long (about a week) maybe you should call the doc or lab place and see about it!

Re: How long for ANA results?

I did eventually phone the office and the results were in. When I got a printout, it showed the report took about a week. I just didn't get any phone calls because my dr was away at the time. Strange that it can take two days on one occasion and a week on others though.
