As a medical negligence attorney, I am often consulted about various medical conditions and recently the topic of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) came up. What is RA and how does it differ from other forms of arthritis? What type of doctor do I need to see if I suspect that I have RA or have a family history of RA? Is the condition treatable or is it a progressive disease with no reasonable outcome? All very legitimate questions and ones that need to be understood.

I am pleased to report that there is a support network and an advocacy team that can help you and direct you to reliable scientific answers to these questions. The Rheumatoid Arthritis Support Network is a new organization committed to raising Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) awareness. They are doing this by ensuring health resources worldwide have the most accurate and well-researched arthritis information available.

What is Rheumatoid Arthritis?

RA is a chronic inflammatory disorder that typically affects the small joints in your hands and feet. Currently, there are about 1.5 million Americans diagnosed with RA. RA is a systematic disease, which means in severe cases it can affect your major organs such as the heart and lungs, raising the risk of heart attack by up to 60%. By increasing awareness of this disorder and making user-friendly resources available, it is our hope that visitors to our website will share this resource so that millions of Americans will have the best opportunity to understand their prognosis, and improve their quality of life!

In this modern era of high tech information, we still remain concerned about patient safety and the need to educate and to prevent disorders from going without proper treatment. At Mishkind Kulwicki Law Co., L.P.A., we truly care about making sure that patients know as much as possible so that they can actively participate in their own healthcare and not rely on others who may be too busy to listen.

I believe the website will provide you with valuable quality of life information on this important topic. We encourage our readers to invite their friends and family to bookmark and check out this website. You might want to touch base with Emily Turner, Awareness Advocate at Rheumatoid Arthritis Support Network, for further information and tell her Howard Mishkind sent you.
