Blood work?? And ana
I got lab work back yesterday the doctors fax has been broke so the lab fax it to me. When I was diagnosed I had all types of anti bodies even one you only have if you have had a blood transfusion which I haven't. My current labs was negative for Ana does this mean my lupus is gone? If so why do I still feel like crap? I'm confused on what this means.
ana means anti nuclea antibodies.
to have a negative test means they did not find any in the base reading.
if they find some, then they work out how diluted the sample must be before they cannot find any.
the higher the reading, the more diluted the sample.
all that the test shows is that something has happenned to your body to reduce your ana at the moment,
(not that you cannot have them again).
