  • Redness of joints
  • Deformity of affected joints
  • Dryness of skin and various mucus membranes

Rheumatoid arthritis, Sjogren's syndrome, chronic inflammatory conditions, cancers, are some disorders that can be diagnosed with RA factor test. RA test results offer an insight into the immune status of a person. All the disorders stated above are types of autoimmune disorders. People who test positive for RA factor are likely to have a weak immune system.

Elevated levels of RA factor are known to be associated with chronic inflammatory conditions. Patients showing abnormal test results for RA test may be diagnosed with a variety of inflammatory disorders including diabetes, atherosclerosis etc.

A venous blood sample obtained from a vein the patient’s right arm is required for performing this test. The sample is stored in a container pre-filled with chemicals which will prevent blood clot formation. The sample is tested for the presence of RA factor using highly calibrated medical tools. Levels of RA factor above 15 IU/ml is considered to be diagnostic rheumatoid arthritis.

Along with RA test, other diagnostic procedures like X-ray of joints, CRP test etc., may also be required. Patients are advised to consult with their physician before undergoing the test. All restrictions advised before undergoing the test must be followed for accurate results.

Abnormal test results for RA test should not be neglected as this can have a serious outcome on the patient’s health. It is important to consult with a physician or a rheumatologist. Elevated levels of RA factor may affect cardiac tissue in long run if the condition is not treated. Therefore timely treatment of the condition is essential.
