Hi, there. Rheumatoid factor is an important test. It is ordered when suspected on rheumatoid arthritis. However, it can be ordered when suspected on lupus or some other autoimmune disease. It is a form of blood test. It is important to distinguish autoimmune diseases from those who are not. Your mother should consult her specialist for more details. She shouldn’t be afraid of the test itself since it is only a simple blood test. I hope this helps. Bye!
