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?
