These antibodies are generated by the immune system to ensure that our body is free of foreign particles. An RA Factor antibody is present in our blood and it protects the system, but when it attaches to a regular body tissue it can damage it.

    What is RA factor testing?

    A rheumatoid factor is also known as RA Factor is a blood test that measures the amount of the rheumatoid factor antibody present in the blood. While there are healthy people that have a high level of a rheumatoid factor but mostly is it associated with various autoimmune diseases which can further impact the health negatively.
