Hi!
A single high or close to high test is not of much diagnostic value. Usually the series of tests are repeated several weeks later to determine whether the lupus anticoagulant or lupus antibody is transient or persistent (risen since the last test). If it rises you will need other antibody tests to confirm lupus. Please consult your doctor regarding this. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
