Antinuclear Antibodies (ANA) are antibodies that can be present in autoimmune conditions such as lupus. The presence of ANA can help diagnose these conditions.

iollo markers that associate with Antinuclear Antibodies (ANA)

Arachidonic acid

Arachidonic acid is an omega-6 fatty acid that can be metabolized into pro-inflammatory eicosanoids. Increased levels of arachidonic acid and its inflammatory metabolites may contribute to the production of autoantibodies like ANA in autoimmune conditions.

Docosahexaenoic acid

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an omega-3 fatty acid that helps regulate inflammation. Reduced DHA levels may promote an inflammatory state that facilitates autoantibody production and positive ANA results.

Eicosapentaenoic acid

Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is an omega-3 fatty acid with anti-inflammatory properties. Low levels of EPA may be associated with increased inflammation and autoimmunity, potentially contributing to elevated ANA levels.
