Rheumatoid arthritis: Your tests are strongly suggesting rheumatoid arthritis. I do not know the range for RA latex for that specific lab, but if you have symptoms consistent with rheumatoid arthritis you most likely have rheumatoid arthritis. Talk to your doctor about the results and the benefits of a rheumatology consult.

See details: The ccp antibody is strongly associated with the diagnosis of rheumatoid srthritis. If the clinical picture fits, you have RA.
