Patient Comments: Antinuclear Antibody Test - Testing

Question:What were the results of your ANA test?

Comment from: Anna, 35-44 Female (Patient) Published: December 18

I am just finally going to have my ANA checked (amongst many other things that general practitioners (GP) I have seen over 14 years should've done). I had Graves' disease back in 1996, and had RAI (radioactive iodine) treatment in 1998. I was placed on levothyroxine in 2000. I lost count on the many GPs and being overmedicated, problems are just starting to surface.

I'm 19 years old and had a ANA value of 1:160 and just found out I have celiac disease. Stopped eating gluten and now I feel much better! No more stomachaches and hemoglobin levels went up so I am no longer anemic as well :)

My baby is 7 month I developed hand pain and swelling which I first attributed to carpal tunnel. Had ANA tested 1:160 with a double stranded DNA of 18 and sjogren of 5.5 . My doctor diagnosed me with LUPUS. I am getting a second opinion. Could this be a wrong diagnosis. I have no other symptoms hair loss, rash etc....

My test results were 1:400 to 1:800. doctors do not know whats happening and have no treatment plan for me. Always have to suffer giddiness and blurred vision. Also have menstrual problem. Recently im experiencing bad joint pains and now waiting for next appointment to do another test. i suspect my condition may have worsened.
