Both the tests should be run at intervals of at least six weeks to get a clearer picture of whether there is a chronic problem. Antiphospholids can cause a variety of problems that wouldn't constitute a formal diagnosis of APS, such as cognitive difficulties.
Many of us take a low dose aspirin as routine prophylaxis even if there is no evidence of APL ABs, given the current great concern over the very high rate of heart and arterosclerosis problems in women with lupus compared with well women, specially young women.
Some of the meds we take have beneficial slight blood thinning effects notably Plaquenil.
