      Hello!.. SLE is diagnose mainly through blood tests. They check for ANA, dsDNA, anti-SSA, anti-smith, antiphosphlolid antibidies, ESR, CRP, C3 and C4 complements along with any physical symptoms you may be experiencing, like a rash, joint pain, swelling… and many other symptoms as SLE can attack any part of your body. But there is not one specific test that will tell you of you have lupus or not. They just combine blood results with your symptoms and kind of base it off of that.
