Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, progressive and disabling disease where the immune system attacks the synovial lining to the joints and other organs. If RA is left undiagnosed , the joints can lose its shape and alignment, which leads to bone erosion and ultimately cause destruction of the joint and permanent disability. Rheumatoid Arthritis is also a systemic disease, which means it can affect internal organs of the body such as the heart, eyes and lungs. Rheumatoid arthritis has many physical and social factors and that can lower quality of life. It can cause pain, disability, and premature death.
