Physical examination half a year ago, rheumatoid factor 117.9, normal range 0 ~ 20. A few days ago, rheumatoid factor was 43.7, with a normal range of 0 ~ 15. Usually no obvious rheumatic symptoms. What does such an indicator mean? Very worried.
Rheumatoid, therefore, the index is high, and there may not be rheumatoid arthritis. However, if there is joint swelling, pain and limited activity at the same time, the rheumatology and Immunology Department needs to further improve the relevant examination, make a clear diagnosis and actively treat. At present, there is no need for special treatment, observe the changes of the condition, and recheck when necessary
If your normal condition is that the rheumatoid factor is a little high, it indicates that you have some rheumatoid arthritis, or some rheumatoid injury. If you have joint swelling and pain or some arthritis, you can timely cooperate with the doctor for anti-inflammatory treatment, or pay attention to keep warm, avoid catching cold and prevent some joint damage.
This is still a little high. It can be said that it should be considered as a rheumatoid arthritis. Of course, I don't know what specific symptoms and signs you have. If the symptoms are obvious, you can temporarily treat it with some hormones and penicillin for 3 ~ 5 days to see how the situation is. If you can control the symptoms, you can try to pay attention to your diet in the future
