Customer Question
Hi. My daughters...

Hi. My daughters blood work just came back with an ANA of 1:80 speckled. Should I be worried

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

She is a 3 sport athlete so is often very sore...but other than that ok

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Why was this test run?

Because I was digging on google because she told me thought her hair was thinning. I went to the doctor and she ordered it more because I was worried
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I would rather do this via computer as I am at an ice rink :)
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 8 months ago
Many normal people have a positive ANA. That is why this test is kind of dangerous to run. It should be monitored but a low titer is not really concerning without signs of lupus. Hair thinning can be from a lot of things. Is this helpful?

Lol on the ice rink. See a doctor while sitting at an ice rink. Isn't technology grand? :)

Is 1:80 considered normal...as doc said it was borderline positive
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 8 months ago
I agree. Super low titer. I would say borderline normal. Should be monitored over time

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
