ANA is Anti Nuclear Antibodies and is something that they do a blood test for to test for you "auto- immunity" levels
The ANA (anti-nuclear antibody) test looks for antibodies to your own body cells. It is positive in many of the autoimmune disorders, such as lupus, but can also be found positive without any illness at all (a false positive).
