A member asked:

What do elevated rheumatoid arthritis markers mean?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Blood test: To diagnose rheumatoid arthritis, a patient needs to have certain distinguishing criteria. Among them is a marker in the blood called rheumatoid factor. An elevated rheumatoid factor alone isn't enough to diagnose someone with rheumatoid arthritis but combined with other symptoms may aid in its diagnosis.
