I don't understand all this? Especially the RF being low, I have heard of high but never low.. And my rumey is 99 percent I have Lupus but have not diagnosed me yet, and just found that out because I thought he did.. Thank you...

Your RF being low doesn't mean anything other than it's below that particular lab's minimum threshold. And the min/max levels are just statistically based values using a selected group of healthy people.

Your A/G is low wrt to the min/max that you've supplied, but this low value isn't alarming. Do you have a chronic liver disease or have you been doing anything extreme wrt your diet?

You've mentioned in your other message posting that your current ANA level is 1:160 but was higher previously. The 1:160 level is considered a borderline low/normal, as you are probably aware. How much higher was it in the previous test?

My ana level was !;640 and wbc and rbc low and with a lot of other test.. And I don't get where my rf is <10 but the last one was 10.4? All this blood test and their meanings are so confusing...
