Anti-dsDNA (Double-stranded) Antibodies Blood Test
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
Anti-dsDNA antibodies are produced when the body cannot differentiate foreign invaders from its own healthy tissues.Hence, it is essential in diagnosing systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), an autoimmune disease wherein the immune system attacks healthy tissues by mistake. This disorder can be genetically acquired or can be caused by hormonal imbalance, environmental influence, or particular medications.
Symptoms of SLE
- Extreme fatigue
- Hair loss
- Mouth or nose sores
- Sensitivity to light
- Skin rash
- Swollen and painful joints
- Purple fingers and toes when stressed or cold
Why should you get tested?
Managing the symptoms of SLE can be done more easily if you get tested as soon as symptoms show up. Severe symptoms develop into complications that involve vital organs such as the heart, kidneys, and lungs. Without proper treatment, SLE can be fatal.
