About the Test

Our Systemic Lupus Blood Test Profile is specifically designed to support the diagnosis and management of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). This comprehensive test panel includes vital markers such as Full Blood Count, Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate, and specific antibodies like ANA and Anti-dsDNA, providing a detailed insight into your immune system's activity and overall health. Administered at London Blood Tests, this profile is essential for those seeking thorough and expert care in monitoring Lupus.

What's Tested?

  • Our comprehensive Systemic Lupus Blood Test Profile is meticulously designed to assist in the diagnosis and monitoring of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). This detailed profile includes a series of essential tests that evaluate various aspects of your health related to Lupus. The profile encompasses the following tests:

    • • Full Blood Count (FBC): Assesses general health and detects a wide range of disorders, including anemia and infection, which are common in Lupus patients.
    • • Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR): Measures the rate at which red blood cells sediment in a period of one hour, helping to detect inflammation associated with Lupus.
    • • Uric Acid: Evaluates uric acid levels in the blood, which can be an indicator of kidney health—a concern in Lupus.
    • • Rheumatoid Factor (RF): Identifies the presence of RF, which is often elevated in autoimmune diseases like Lupus.
    • • Anti-Cyclic Citrullinated Peptide (Anti CCP) Antibodies: Helps differentiate Rheumatoid Arthritis from Lupus when joint symptoms are present.
    • • C-Reactive Protein (CRP): Another inflammation marker that can indicate flare-ups in conditions like Lupus.
    • • Antinuclear Antibodies (ANA): Crucial for diagnosing Lupus, as these antibodies often target the nucleus of cells.
    • • Anti-double stranded DNA (Anti-dsDNA): Highly specific to Lupus and useful in assessing disease activity.
    • • Antibodies to Extractable Nuclear Antigens (ENA): Targets specific proteins within the cell nucleus, aiding in detailed Lupus diagnosis.
    • • Anti-Cardiolipin Autoantibodies: Important for detecting antiphospholipid syndrome, a common complication of Lupus.

Our tailored tests will help you discover health insights to assess your wellbeing.
