OK here we go...

I have had issues with my back and finally had a Dr do some tests on me.

I have a RF of 93 and the second test was 80.

I have read the higher the number the more severe the desease. BUT, how high is high. I know 93 is higher than normal, but is it VERY high or is that just a little high? What exactly is high?

More information.......

I also have high C- Reactive Protein and I know that means there is inflamation somewhere in my body... DUH! I could have told that that!

It is 1.29

The Bun / Creatinine sample was a little high, but that means I was a little dehydrated, so that is ok I guess. It was 23. That is barely higher than the norm of 22.

My main question goes back to the RF factor, but any information I can get is welcome.

Thank you!
