I'm 23 male my ra factor is 100 positive my ccp is 16 negative , sed rate 12 negative, and crp .13 negative can high blood fats cause + ra factor?
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, rheumatoid factor is not a specific marker for rheumatoid arthritis. It can be positive in many situations, including recovery from infection. High blood fat per se is not a cause of +RA factor. ...Read more

Need more info: WBC = white blood cell count. An elevation in WBC (leukocytosis) is commonly due to an infection. Other potential causes include an inflammatory process, which is consistent with an elevated sed rate. WBCs can also be elevated because the body is stressed from some other cause. What may be causing this depends upon how high the WBC has been, and which of the 5 types of WBCs are elevated. ...Read more
My 3 year old son has poor (weight) growth. He has high platelet count, very high sed rate, very high bun/creatinine ratio, high bun and very high iga?
I'm not sure what's: Causing ur son's condition but my best guess is there's some form of bone marrow and immune deficiency causing his symptoms. I presume he has been worked up by a hematologist.

My 3 yr old has a very high neutrophil count, very low lymphocyte count, high sed rate, low hematocrit. What could be going on with him. Repeat labs?
Infection: The shift to neutrophils and away from lymphocytes occurs during the early stages of fighting an infection or fighting a bacterial infection. The sed rate is a nonspecific marker, that could be up w/infection, or lots of other things. The low hct doesn't fit well, unless just barely out of normal. In any case, at 3 yrs old, needs close exam by pediatrics. ...Read more
Lots: A high sed rate can indicate infection--say on a heart valve, pneumonia, etc. It can indicate inflammation in countless (almost) types of rheumatism--rheumatiod arthritis, lupus, etc. Certain cancers can cause high sed rates. It is a very non-specific test. It tells you something is probably going on, but not what is going on. ...Read more
Not diagnostic: The sed rate is a weak adjunct to a rheumatologist's history and physical exam. At your age, i wouldn't get excited about this, and would also urge you to keep in mind that it's a hard test for the lab to do correctly. The fact that it's not extremely high is one of many pieces of information that will be used in making a call for or against an inflammatory arthritis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
