Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm a Consultant Rheumatologist and I am reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
Your ANA is positive
Now can you explain why you had it done so that I can help you further ?
Do you have thyroid function test done as well?
Any symptom other than the hair fall?
Thanks for the details
If you have no other symptoms then you should not worry
Some 5-10% of healthy individuals can have a positive ANA
The things to look for is any other symptoms like rash,joint pain,palpitations,oral ulcer etc as in that case you will need further evaluation
Positive ANA at time can be seen in immune mediated hemolytic anemia as well and must be considered as possible cause of your anemia
Please do let me know if you have any other question
There are various types or pattern of ANA which can be seen in various conditions but as I said if you don,t have any other symptoms so nothing to worry at all
So it is already within normal limits
So you should just wait and see if you develop any other symptoms
Alright so I think nothing to worry at all for this positive ANA
If done please leave a 5-stars feedback rating
You are welcome
