The value is not too high. With a history of "many miscarriages" and a positive anti-cardiolipin assay I would recommend you see a high risk OB/GYN to see if they agree treatment should be instituted. In light of the history and the positive test value it sounds like treatment would be warranted but this is best determined by a high risk OB/GYN.

I hope this helps.

Let me know if I can help with anything else.
