Dr Pamela Mangat's Places of Practice
Rheumatoid Arthritis: an expert approach
Rheumatoid arthritis is a type of inflammatory arthritis that affects 1% of the population. In keeping with many autoimmune conditions it is more common amongst women. It is thought to arise through a complex interplay of genetic and environmental factors, which lead to activation of the immune system and inflammation of the lining of the joint. This process results in redness, warmth, pain and swelling of the joints. The treatments we use in rheumatoid arthritis aim to suppress the inflammation, thus improving symptoms and also crucially preventing progressive damage to the joints. The inflammatory burden in rheumatoid disease is associated with osteoporosis and increased cardiovascular risk, it is therefore important to screen for and address risk factors for these conditions also.Read full article
