Subject: intro and question re ANA

hello! I am waiting for my consult with a rheumatologist. Long story short - I have had "buckling knees", sore knees, sore and stiff hands, and a slightly high ANA count. My doc said something to me that makes no sense - that the range for ANA is 1-15, and mine is below 10. But I dont see that range in anything on the internet. I see "titres" on the internet, things like 1.180, etc - but whats this 1 to 15???? THANKS!
