RNP (ribonucleoprotein)

4 posts in this topic

I just joined the forum right now. I happened to read a message where someone had asked a question on RNP and if it was MCTD?

 

My question is this, if anyone knows the answer. My RNP showed only 1. So does anyone really know what that means?

Hi, Postie. First let me welcome you to the Forums. I hope you will find it a good resource for information and support. I used the Search Forum button in the purple toolbar and found this thread dealing with the same question. I do not know if this is the one you were reading, but in it Janey and Jeannie give some good links to follow through on:

 

Question on RNP blood work

 

As for the actual values, I don't have any personal experience, but perhaps someone else can share their own.


Warm wishes,

Jefa

Hi Postie,

 

Welcome to the Forum!

 

I'm not sure what "My RNP showed only 1." means. A positive result to an antibody test is usually expressed by a titer ratio, but the '1' might mean a positive result for antibodies to only 1 protein. We do have a good page on Antibodies, though it's always best to check with your doctor before reading too much into test results. (Every time I've done that, I've needed to refill my prescription for Anti-Confusion pills!)

 

Again, a warm welcome and best wishes,
