    What does high RNP antibodies mean?

    I Have Sjogren's Syndrome, Raynads

    I have an elevated level! I just wondered what this means? I was tested for Lupus & other I think they are referred to as Markers or something like that!

    Can anyone help me to understand or at least direct me to where I can find out? Thank you very much:angel angel:

    Re: What does high RNP antibodies mean?

    Welcome to the boards Angel Lady. The RNP antibodies are markers, when elevated, for autoimmune disorders. They are sometimes elevated at lower levels in lupus, and at higher levels, are often seen in Mixed Connective Tissue Disease, an "overlap" of 2 or more autoimmune disorders, By itself, RNP is not diagnostic of any specific AI disease, but is taken into consideration with the whole picture of clinical signs and symptoms and other labs that may point to a diagnosis. I hope that helps somewhat.
