First off, even though the level for your RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis) Latex Turbid test was pretty high, I would suggest trying not to worry as this may cause unneeded stress.
Often individuals with rheumatoid arthritis can experience temporary inflammatory flare ups (which will cause the higher levels of rheumatoid factor) but these can often go as quickly as they came.
The Latex Test
The purpose of the latex test is a blood test used to test for the levels of rheumatoid factor in a patients blood. This is an antibody thought to contribute to the illness of rheumatoid arthritis.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an auto immune disease which causes inflammation in the joints such as knees, wrists and knuckles. It can be a painful disease which can reduce the function and move ability of these joints.
