Hi Stacy,

It's a common enough finding in Lupies along with ANA and symptoms as Clare said, and ruling other things out, it's very indicative of Lupus.

I was diagnosed with low Positive ANA (the highest it ever got was 1:160) to my knowledge, low C4, low C3, red cell casts and protein spilling from kidneys (no other cause found for that after investigation). They were the only abnormalities as far as blood and urinalysis went, I had no other antibodies and still don't. However I also had about 7 of the other criteria so it pretty well clinched the deal for me anyway. It was the criteria that really tipped the balance and made my diagnosis more specific.

How is your Cellcept going? Is it helping?
