I wonder if you can enlighten me to these results.
i am diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis, following palindromic pattern.
My blood test results show i am positive for rheumatoid factor, i have anti ccp with a value of more than 200. ESR is 12mm/hr.
I understand that ESR is normal. And it appears (from what i have read on internet - dangerous i know!) That the anti-ccp is pretty high.
Am i correct, and is there a correlation with it being high equalling more aggressive disease?
I am seeing my consultant in a couple of weeks and will of course ask him, but just trying to get my head round this at the moment.
