Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disorder that primarily affects the joints. It is characterized by inflammation in the lining of the joints, leading to swelling, pain, and stiffness, particularly in the hands and feet.
The exact cause of RA is not fully understood, but it is believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors that trigger the immune system to attack the body’s own tissues. RA can also affect other parts of the body, such as the eyes, skin, and lungs.
Treatment options for RA may include medications to relieve pain and inflammation, slow the progression of the disease, and prevent joint damage. Physical therapy, occupational therapy, and assistive devices may also be helpful in managing symptoms and maintaining function.
Preventing complications of RA may involve managing symptoms, maintaining a healthy weight, and avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. Regular medical care and monitoring can also help ensure early detection and treatment of complications.
