The CCP antibody: First of all, the clinical presentation has to be compatible with ra. Testing merely confirms the clinical suspicion. The best test is the ccp antibody. The rf test is much more nonspecific. ...Read more

ESR is 9 mm/h and TSH is 1.03 mIU/L,. Does it mean no rheumatoid arthritis and no automimmune disease?

ESR is 9 mm/h and TSH is 1.03 mIU/L,. Does it mean no rheumatoid arthritis and no automimmune disease?

No: A low ESR may mean that there is no active inflammation but does not rule out the present of an autoimmune disease. On the other hand, if you have an active joint problem and the ESR is normal, then the problem would be unlikely to be an autoimmune issue. TSH is related to thyroid function and is not a gauge for autoimmune disease by itself ...Read more

If CCP antibody is positive then your doctor probably made the right diagnosis which is RA.

My ESR is 34, rf, aso &ana tests all are negative. I have joint pain in my finger, knee & toe. Mild swelling in 3 fingers at dip joint. Can i still have rheumatoid arthritis?

My ESR is 34, rf, aso &ana tests all are negative. I have joint pain in my finger, knee & toe. Mild swelling in 3 fingers at dip joint. Can i still have rheumatoid arthritis?

Possible: It is possible to have sero- negative ra, in which the rheumatoid factor assay is negative. It is also possible that you have another autoimmune illness, there are some overlaps in these conditions and the lab work doesn't always give an exact diagnosis. You should see a rheumatologist if your joint inflammation persists. ...Read more
