I havent been feeling well lately and my rheumy and gp had some labs done. They did a double strand DNA test that came back greatly abnormal(80), does this indicate that I am having a flare, or just that I have lupus? I was diagnosed 4 years ago with SLE nephritis so I am confused because the information I have looked up on the purpose of the test is to confirm lupus, but I already know I have it. Other abnormalities include an increase in protien in my urine, elevated sed rate(39), low sodium(138) and low AST(9) on the comprehensive metabolic panel, and high immunoglobulin, my complement levels are still in normal range. Im going to see my gp this week but any clarification would help so much!!
