Scl-70 is 111, or high, normal is <20
My first Scl-70 at a different lab had different ranges, it was high at 8, normal <1, wonder what the difference is, it would be nice to compare apples to apples.
He also mentioned that my ANA had 2 patterns, speckled and nucleolar though the nurse originally told me speckled only, he said they ran it twice.
Starting Metho in a few weeks, hope it helps.

Thanks for posting your results. I was told recently that having labs done at the same place really helps the doctors compare results as time goes on.
What kind of Methotrexate have you decided to take, the injection or pill?

I was giving methotrexate pills, hope they work

I just wanted to say that my blood work is speckled and nucleolar also. My ana is 1:1280. As of last July I was Scl-70 negative.
I have tried the Methotrexate and did not have any results from it. I have heard about a lot of people it has helped. I hope you do well on it.
