LLP038: Living with Rheumatoid Arthritis

Back with another discussion on a very important and common autoimmune disease – Rheumatoid Arthritis. In my office quite often when patients were asked about their medical history some would check off that they have rheumatoid arthritis when they really meant to just say osteoarthritis. Its a phrase we hear a lot on television but very few understand the overall severity of the disorder. On our Facebook page it was one of the most engaged discussions we have had for the Lunch and Learn so I decided to bring it to the podcast today. 



In this episode you will learn:

  • What is Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Background information
  • Yes kids can get it too
  • Osteoarthritis vs Rheumatoid Arthritis 
  • Risk Factors
  • Signs/Symptoms
  • How is it diagnosed
  • Certain treatment options
