Just wanting some input and advice. I have just had bloods done and GP wanted to test me for Lupus, as I have the facial rash, painful achy joint and bones, fatigue and gastrointestinal issues. I got my bloods back this morning and I'm confused. My GP didn't explain anything just referred me to a specialist is rethumitoid or whatever it spelt lol.
It says the following abnormalities showed as follows..
- Weak positive ANA 1:160 speckled pattern
- Anti ds DNA Equivocal result of 13 - ESR above range 42
- Vitamin D below range 11
Then below in comments it says
As of 15/07/2011 ds-DNA antibodies are screened by EliA assay.
Positive EliA are confirmed by Modified Farr assay.
Reference: F Fiegel et al: Lupus(2010) 19: 957-964
A Antico et al:
Lupus(2010) 19: 906-912
The following results on this sample have been reported in detail, and
are reproduced here in abbreviated form for your convenience.
Can anyone help me understand this. I'm really confused. Am I get tested for lupus? If so what are the chances csuse I didn't even know that was a thing until this morning. 😕
