Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

ANA (Anti Nuclear Antibody) Test is a blood test used to diagnose immunity to nuclear radiation. The test is performed on individuals who have experienced an exposure to radioactive material or have been suspected of such an exposure.

Some people who are exposed to radiation may develop a condition called antibody-mediated destruction of tissues (AMDT), which can lead to cancer. ANA testing can help identify people who are at risk and may need additional health protection.

ANA tests are typically only recommended if there are concerns about your immune system because of work or travel in areas with high levels of radiation. If you have had a recent exposure to radiation, it is important to talk to your doctor about the best course of action for you.

The normal range for ANA Test is typically considered to be between 0 and 15 units/ml.

1. Always consult a doctor before taking any test or embarking on a new health regimen.

2. Do not stop taking your medications without first consulting a healthcare professional. Many prescription medications can interfere with results of the ANA test.

3. Wash your hands thoroughly before and after taking the test. This will help to reduce the risk of cross contamination.

4. Avoid eating or drinking anything for at least six hours before and after taking the test, in order to avoid potential contamination.

5. Make sure to drink plenty of water while waiting for the test results, as dehydration can increase your risk of complications from the ANA test.

There are several ways to prepare for an ANA test. Patients can agree to have their blood drawn at home, which is the recommended method. Alternatively, they can have their blood drawn at a hospital by a technician trained in performing ANA tests. In either case, patients will need to provide information about the types of radiation they have been exposed to and when it occurred.

There is no one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to fasting for the ANA (Anti Nuclear Antibody) Test. Depending on the patient's individual medical history and current health, fasting may or may not be required.

The home sample collection is available for ANA Test.
