FACTS ABOUT RHEUMATOLOGIC DISORDERS

  • There are over 200 types of rheumatic and arthritic disease with arthritis being the second most common cause for time off work. Early diagnosis and treatment is therefore essential in ensuring that patients can control their disease.
  • Nearly 40 million people of all ages are affected by arthritis or a related disease that affects the joints, muscles and bones. These diseases can cause severe health impairment leading to death, but their impact is usually reflected in restricted activity, loss of productivity, increased utilization of medical services and the high cost of medical and disability expenses.
