Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disorder that typically affects the joints in your hands and feet. It is the most common inflammatory condition which affects about 1% of the world’s population. The symptoms generally surface after 40 years of age and are mostly prevalent among women. Generally, rheumatoid arthritis affects the lining of your joints, causing a painful swelling which ultimately results in bone erosion and joint deformity. Although no proper treatment exists at present to treat rheumatoid arthritis, doctors usually focus on controlling its symptoms and combating joint pain and damage.
