In my opinion your test results means you have an autoimmune disease , it is not definitely Rheumatoid arthritis
I recommend rheumatoid factor and anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP) antibodies tests to confirm

Good Luck

It is an indicator of autoimmune disease but not specific ..

hi
this report is not indicative of rheumatoid arthritis.
RA factor and CRP needs to be checked.

ANA test means that your body contains antibodies attacking it … Mean you do a autoimmune disease

Rheumatoid arthritis do have a diagnostic criteria basedvon clinical examination and some blood tests..
