Your longevity guide to Rheumatoid Factor. Gain deeper insights into your health.

Mito Health provides comprehensive biomarker analysis covering 67 key biomarkers. Our detailed reports offer insights into various aspects of your health, helping you make informed decisions.

What is Rheumatoid Factor?

Rheumatoid Factor (RF) is an autoantibody produced by the immune system.

An autoantibody is an antibody that mistakenly targets and attacks your own tissues, instead of foreign pathogens. RF targets your normal IgG antibodies, which normally help you to fight off infection from pathogens. This aggravates inflammation and tissue damage. 

The presence of RF indicates that the immune system is acting against the body itself, which is often a sign of autoimmune disorders.

How it’s related to your healthspan

RF is closely related to your healthspan, because its presence in the blood can indicate a higher risk of autoimmune diseases. 

These chronic autoimmune conditions can lead to significant pain, disability, and a reduced quality of life. Furthermore, persistent inflammation and autoimmune activity linked to high RF levels can increase the risk of other health issues, such as cardiovascular diseases.

A common autoimmune disease associated with RF is rheumatoid arthritis. In rheumatoid arthritis patients, elevated levels of RF are associated with more severe disease activity, joint damage, and an overall poorer prognosis. 

Thus, monitoring and managing RF levels is crucial for identifying autoimmune conditions early and implementing effective treatments, which can improve health outcomes and potentially extend your healthspan. 

How to optimise your Rheumatoid Factor levels

Optimising RF levels involves strategies that aim to reduce autoimmune activity and inflammation, and thus, minimise the amount of RF your body produces.

Nutrition plays a key role; adopting an anti-inflammatory diet can help manage autoimmune conditions. This includes consuming foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids (such as fatty fish, flaxseeds, and walnuts), antioxidants (found in fruits and vegetables), and avoiding pro-inflammatory foods like processed foods, refined sugars, and trans fats. 

Regular physical activity, especially low-impact exercises such as swimming, walking, and yoga, can help maintain joint function and reduce inflammation. 

Adequate sleep is essential, as poor sleep can exacerbate inflammation and autoimmune activity. 

Stress management techniques, including mindfulness, meditation, and relaxation exercises, can help lower stress-induced inflammation.

Why is health screening important?
