Hi Mindy,

I am thinking this is the newer way of reporting ANA, as far as I know anything under 100 is normal. There's another way of reporting and that's in titres which you will often see here. They double each time, 1:80 (low positive but enough for diagnosis if there are lots of signs of disease and criteria met), 1:160, 1:320, 1:640, 1:1280, 1:2560.

There's more to diagnosing than the ANA though and many of us were negative early on like you, then it changed. Is your doctor doing more follow up on you?

love
Lily
