Because there is the potential for RA to affect not only your joints, the condition must be treated as a serious one. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease. This means that your immune system mistakenly attacks healthy cells.
If mismanaged or left untreated, RA can lead to your immune system attacking other parts of your body. This many include organs such as your lungs, your kidneys, and your heart.
With the right diet, physical therapy, and medication treatments, rheumatoid arthritis can be slowed and correctly managed.
Our team here at Haym Salomon Home for Nursing and Rehabilitation is very experienced at helping our patients manage their RA and achieve their best lives possible.
