Yes can be a possibilty.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into your problem I would suggest you that since your anti TPO antibodies are high and XXXXXXX is 1:320 positive it is a definite indication that some autoimmune process is going on . All the autoimmune diseases are somehow interrelated to each other .

Thus there definitely exists a possibility that your XXXXXXX can be positive due to your autoantibodies against thyroid. May be you had autoimmune thyroididitis at some point . Plus the pattern is speckled which is very non specific and can be positive . I would advise you to get an ENA Profile done which can throw some light over this . But since you have no symptoms like oral ulceration , photosensitivity , rash etc . the likelihood of lupus is very less.

Take care.
