Additional Information

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease in which inflammation plays a major role in causing joint problems. Warmth and swelling in the joints, along with significant stiffness and pain, can make daily life difficult. Many people with rheumatoid arthritis also experience fatigue, low-grade fever, loss of appetite, depression, and muscle aches.

In this, the third edition of Living with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Tammi L. Shlotzhauer describes new findings about causes and treatments, including • New research on risk factors and triggers, including pathologic bacteria in the digestive tract, smoking, and exposure to pollutants and chemicals• Lifestyle and diet modifications that can help avoid potential triggers • How stress contributes to inflammation and other symptoms • Information about new biologic disease-modifying drugs • Promising research on biomarkers that may generate a personalized approach to treatment • Remarkable gains in reducing disability, hospitalizations, and surgeries

In addition to explaining the causes, symptoms, and treatment options for people who have rheumatoid arthritis, Dr. Shlotzhauer offers practical strategies for coping with the pain, fatigue, and emotional toll of a chronic illness. She provides new information on associated diseases such as osteoporosis, tips for finding safe and reliable information online, and information on how to get an accurate diagnosis.

This is a phenomenal book about Living with Rheumatoid Arthritis. A very appropriate title. The book explains everything from diagnosis to how to live as well and full a life as you want to have. You can have the best Rheumatologist doctor on your case, as I do, but to have this very well written book as your primer to this disease will help you to help yourself in every aspect of your life. The book explains medications, exercises for the body and mind, nutrition, ways to eat to fight inflammation, supplement guides as well as surgical procedures.
A good basic covering of the facts in life with RA, its symptoms and treatments. Kind of like what you would hope for if you were able to have several good long talks with your doctor. Clearly written by an experienced practitioner, with a lot of useful information but not too much medical jargon to loose the layman. As I move through my treatment, I find myself retuning to it to refresh on the medicines and other information, and pick up more of the detail. Not the last book I will buy on deal with my RA, but I am glad it was one of the first.
This one met my expectations, written by a local rheumatologist. Lots and lots of information that is helpful to me;, especially since it has be updated recently.
