Hi lovebitesyou.

The Antinuclear antibody (ANA) test when postive-usually when the titer
is higher than 1:80- and the pattern shows minute speckles  it is normally associated with SLE, Sjogren syndrome & scleroderma.
Note that this test is only indicative.
Diagnosis of the above conditions must meet the diagnostic criteria  from various lab test results and clinical findings.
Hope this helps.
