Question Erica

Hello Erica,
I think that I didn't write my question down right. Could you please read this question? You seem to know much about ANA testing.
My ANA1 results came out as an 8 ANA results were a 1:40 titer.

I appreciate your help.
Thank you.
Take care and Gob bless
Have a great evening.

Re: Erica

Hi Michele,
Your ANA results as a 1:40 titer are normal. The ANA test measures the amount of antibodies in your blood that work against your own body. The results are given in titers. A titer is a measure of how much your blood sample can be diluted before the presence of antibodies can no longer be detected. Anything less than a 1:80 titer is considered a normal or negative result. As far as the Serum ANA I had thought that it was given in titers. I thought that possibly you meant that your Serum ANA was a 1:8 rather than your Serum ANA1 test read 8. I've never heard of a Serum ANA1 test, just the Serum ANA and again I thought the results were given in titers but I could be wrong. If I'm not wrong and it is read in titers then your results are normal as anything less than a titer of 1:20 is considered normal. If you have any other questions feel free to ask
