my titers (or lupus part II)

I just got my lab results in hard copy. I thought I would post them to see if any of you can make more sense of them than I can:

ANA: Positive
TITRE: 1:160
PATTERN: Homogeneous pattern
Speckled pattern


  1. I'm pretty sure that your weakly positive ANA titer could mean absolutely nothing. They have to correlate it with clinical signs and symptoms.

    You do not want this disease.

  2. Thanks OMDG; you're right, I do not want this disease.

    What I really want is some explanation for why I feel so lousy.

    The psychiatrist I have been seeing for 2 years says that he has no idea what is causing my symptoms and that he is now "fishing" for an explanation.
