ANA Test

What is the Antinuclear Antibody (ANA) Test?

An ANA test is done to detect the antinuclear antibodies in the blood. Antibodies are produced by our immune system in order to help our body fight against infections. But, that is not the case with antinuclear antibodies. These antinuclear antibodies attack the normal cell of the body, especially the nucleus of the cells. 

The positive ANA test normally indicates that the immune system is active against our own body cells i.e. an autoimmune reaction. However, this is not necessarily the case as some healthy people also have ANA test results. 

ANA test in Pakistan is a special diagnostic test. A doctor would normally recommend an ANA test in case of any suspicion of autoimmune diseases or disorders such as lupus, scleroderma, or rheumatoid arthritis.

A doctor would recommend an ANA test if you have the following symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle Pain
  • Joint Pain
  • Swelling
  • Butterfly-shaped red rash (It is a symptom of lupus)

Why is an Antinuclear Antibody (ANA) Test Conducted?

An ANA test is conducted in order to diagnose and detect autoimmune disorders such as:

  • Autoimmune Hepatitis (It is an autoimmune disorder that causes rashes, joint pain, poor appetite, fatigue, nausea, and especially an inflammation of the liver.
  • Lupus (It is a chronic disease that affects different parts of the body).
  • Scleroderma (It is a rare disease. It affects blood vessels, joints, and skin).
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis (It is a condition that affects hands and feet. It causes swelling and pain in them).
  • Sjogren’s Syndrome (One of the rarest diseases affecting the moisture-making glands of the body).
  • Autoimmune Thyroid Disease (This disease affects the thyroid gland and thus causes hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism).
  • Dermatomyositis or Polymyositis (This autoimmune disease causes inflammation, weakness, and pain in the muscles. It also causes a rash on the body).

How to Interpret the Antinuclear Antibody (ANA) Test?

When the antinuclear antibodies are present in the blood, the ANA test would be positive. But, the positive result does not mean that you are suffering from a disease. Even healthy people without any disease also have ANA positive tests, especially women who are above 65 years of age.

The ANA test result would also be positive as a side effect of certain medications or diseases such as cancer or infectious diseases.

Your doctor would recommend further tests upon the suspicion of any autoimmune disorder. The ANA test is just one test that can help your doctor in diagnosing the cause of your signs and symptoms.
