Understanding Anti-Nuclear Antibody (ANA) by IFA - End Point Titer in Asansol


What is Anti-Nuclear Antibody (ANA) by IFA - End Point Titer in Asansol?

An Anti-Nuclear Antibody (ANA) by IFA - End Point Titer, a blood test available at an affordable price with Tata 1mg labs in Asansol is used to detect the presence of antinuclear antibodies (ANAs) or autoantibodies that target the nuclei of cells in the body. These antibodies can mistakenly attack the body's own tissues, leading to autoimmune diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, or Sjogren’s syndrome. 

An Anti-Nuclear Antibody (ANA) by IFA - End Point Titer test is typically suggested when a doctor suspects an autoimmune disorder due to symptoms such as joint pain, fatigue, skin rashes, light sensitivity, or inflammation. Also, it may be advised if there are risk factors such as aging, obesity, and a family history of autoimmune diseases. No special preparation is required for this test.

What does Anti-Nuclear Antibody (ANA) by IFA - End Point Titer measure?

An Anti-Nuclear Antibody (ANA) by IFA - End Point Titer test checks for antinuclear antibodies (ANA) in your blood. These antibodies, different from typical ones that fight off invaders in the body, can attach to structures inside the body’s own cell nuclei. If ANAs are present in the blood, it may suggest that your immune system is overly sensitive, causing inflammation against your own tissues and possibly indicating autoimmune diseases.
