    Not particularly helpful is it to give a figure but not explain the meaning of it?

    As I understand it the normal range of Rheumatoid Factor level varies depending on how each laboratory conducts the test but, broadly speaking, a normal range is from 0.0 to 14.0.

    I think your daughter should go back to her doc and have a chat about this if she's worried.

    Thank you all for your replies I have passed this info over to my daughter. apparently she has an appointment also for hospital cos she is suspected to have carpel tunnel syndrome so she will have see dr soon after that for results of that.
