Jane Seymour Lends Support to Recognise the Hopes and Achievements of People Living With Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
Date:9/22/2009

uch as getting up in the morning, going to work or caring for one's family can become arduous tasks.

Being a progressive disease means that RA can get worse over time, and eventually lead to permanent and irreversible damage to the joints, which could result in deformity and loss of independence over time, as well as a decreased ability to work, potential surgery and higher medical costs.(2,4,5,6) Studies have shown that early and aggressive treatment of RA may successfully stop disease progression, and enable people with RA to continue living a productive lifestyle.(4,7,8,9)

"Many people with RA expend so much effort on day-to-day living, dealing with the pain and fatigue, that they rarely have time to think about the long-term implications of living with RA," says Dr. Alejandro Olivé Marqués, Rheumatologist, Hospital Universitari Germans Trias i Pujol, Barcelona, Spain and speaker at the My Day for RA event.

"Fortunately, there have been significant medical advances in the last few years for people with RA. With the right treatment and support, you may not only be able to control your symptoms, but actually stop the disease from getting worse, allowing patients to continue living active lives and protecting their future."

My Day for RA was created by Wyeth Pharmaceuticals. For further information please visit http://www.MyDayforRA.com.
