Test Details & Preparation

  • Rheumatoid Factor test is done to help diagnose rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

  • Rheumatoid Factor test is performed when you have joint pain and fatigue that your health care provider suspects may be due to RA.

  • A blood sample drawn from a vein in your arm for a Rheumatoid Factor test.

  • No preparation is needed for a Rheumatoid Factor test.

  • In those with symptoms and clinical signs of rheumatoid arthritis, the presence of significant concentrations of RF indicates that it is likely that they have RA. Higher levels of RF generally correlate with more severe disease and a poorer prognosis.

  • A negative RF test does not rule out RA. Some people with RA will have very low levels of or no detectable RF. In these cases, a CCP antibody test may be positive and used to confirm RA.

  • Positive RF test results may also be seen in healthy people.
