There are 2 types of arthritis, an autoimmune disorder where a person’s immune system attaches its own tissue whereas the other type is largely due to joint “wear and tear”. RF ( Rheumatoid factor) test is primarily used to diagnosis rheumatoid arthritis whereas ESR ( Erythrocytes Sedimentation Rate) is used to assist with diagnosing conditions that can cause inflammation. Rheumatoid factor is elevated in patients with chronic and acute inflammation. Symptoms include stiffness and swelling of the joints, nodules under the skin and evidence of inflamed joint capsules on X-ray report.
