Blood tests done for rheumatoid arthritis, positive or normal?
I’m a 37 year old female and got some blood tests done for rheumatoid arthritis and just got the results back online but I want to know what a .26 ana quarantine result means is that positive for ra? Or normal?
In my opinion your test results means you have an autoimmune disease , it is not definitely Rheumatoid arthritis
I recommend rheumatoid factor and anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP) antibodies tests to confirm
It is an indicator of autoimmune disease but not specific ..
Which joints are painful ?
this report is not indicative of rheumatoid arthritis.
RA factor and CRP needs to be checked.
ANA test means that your body contains antibodies attacking it … Mean you do a autoimmune disease
Rheumatoid arthritis do have a diagnostic criteria basedvon clinical examination and some blood tests..
