Guestpost: Pregnancy & Parenting with Arthritis Survey Results

Image
In the fall of last year, Laurie Proulx from the Canadian Arthritis Patient Alliance (CAPA) wrote a guest post for The Seated View about their new project on pregnancy and parenting with arthritis, of which she is the lead. She introduced the survey and asked my readers to help provide information on these topics. Today, Laurie is back with the result of the survey. Take it away, Laurie!

Demystifying Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatment Options

Image
With spending so little time with our rheumatologists, we often don't get an opportunity to ask questions and that can create a lot of fear around treatment. My new post for HealthCentral clarifies the options so you can get more specific in the questions you ask. And that will help you make better decisions about treatment:

"Your rheumatologist has just rattled off at the names of a number of medications. All these multisyllabic words sound like a foreign language -- how will you know what is the best treatment option for you? Let’s demystify RA meds, so you can make better decisions."

You can read the rest of the post on RA treatment options on the HealthCentral RA page.
