My wife 48 has raised anti ccp antibody reading is 21. what does it mean please?

See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, the level of the antibody in your wife is barely above normal and may not be clinically relevant. In general, it is a marker of rheumatoid arthritis.
