That is not a correct reading. an ANA test has a titre result that will look like this:
1:40
1:80
1:160

and so on...Ask your doctor again about the results. Also, what symptoms is your daughter having?

my ana goes positive and negative. my daughters ana runs high and she has hashimotos thyroidism.

i think we just have to stay educated and change doctors until we find one that will truely help

i have lots of autoimune symptoms and symptoms of lupus - just because you have symptoms of lupus dose not mean you have lupus. it means you have a greater chance of getting it then maybe someone else does, but that  could be when you are 90??  that is what some stupid doc told me............sigh..........still trying to figure this out myself

good luck

My ANA level did all kinds of tricks too.  First it was 160, then 640, then neg.  I finally read on someone's post that you need to spend time in the sun before your lab work is drawn.  I had a appt. last July and knew it was time for her to do lab, so I spent about 20 min. in sun right before the appt. and my lab was 2,560.  Don't know what to think about the neg reading, but have read where that is a common thing too.  And you can feel really crummy and have a neg reading and on days you feel better, it will be really high.  So symptoms don't have anything to do with how the ANA level reads.

What is your ANA level?
