Hi, can you please tell my why my blood tests came out NEGATIVE when I've had SLE for approximately 35 years? I don't know if being on prednesone is the reason.
Thank You

I had this happen to me after 15 years of positive tests. My doc's response was it didn't mean that I don't have lupus. The next test was back to positive. He blames the lab.
