What is Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Rheumatoid Arthritis also known as RA, is an autoimmune disease that causes the body to attack healthy cells, primarily focusing on the synovial tissues within the joints. Joints become inflamed causing damage to the joint tissue leading to chronic pain, stiffness, deformities, and long-term disability. Multiple joints can be affected by Rheumatoid Arthritis at a time. Symptoms often manifest bilaterally, meaning both sides of the body are affected.

Joints most often affected include:

  • Hands
  • Wrists
  • Knees
  • Feet

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a systemic disease, and can affect other body tissue, systems and organs such as:

  • Lungs
  • Heart
  • Eyes
  • Skin
  • Vascular system

The specific causes of RA are unknown, but some factors can increase the risk of developing the disease, like:

  • Genetics
  • Age, RA can begin at any age, but chances are higher after 60 years of age
  • Sex, women are two to three times more likely to develop RA than men
  • Smoking, and early life exposure to smoking
  • Obesity

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic condition, but with the proper treatment, remission is possible.

How Can Rheumatoid Arthritis Be Treated?

Treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis is most successful when the condition is diagnosed with in six months of the onset of symptoms. Early diagnosis can slow progression of the damage caused to joints and bones.

Medications prescribed for RA vary depending on symptoms, severity, and how long a person has been living with the disease. Patients who are experiencing moderate to severe RA may have difficulty taking oral medications or find that oral medications simply are not working for them. In these cases, doctors will prescribe infusion of intravenous medications.

Infusion therapy or injection medicine is administered directly into the bloodstream. Providing faster, longer- lasting relief from symptoms than oral medication. Treatment duration and frequency depends on the severity of the disease and the medications being administered.
