Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This guide makes coping with and understanding the disease easier by outlining its causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatments. The book also suggests exercises and gives advice on dealing with the pain and change in lifestyle arthritis causes." — Science News

Book News Annotation:

This guide for patients and their families presents practical information about living with rheumatoid arthritis. It describes the physical features of the disease as well as its psychological, emotional, and functional effects. A sampling of topics includes protecting the joints, beginning an exercise program, understanding disability benefits, finding information on the Internet, and participating in clinical trials. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

A trusted guide and an invaluable resource, Living with Rheumatoid Arthritis offers practical advice for the millions of people coping with this painful disease. Now thoroughly revised and expanded, in a second edition, this book brings readers up to date with the latest methods of diagnosis and treatment.

Building on their accessible explanation of the disease and its causes, the authors describe the essential components of care: medication, joint protection, physical activity, and good nutrition. They provide a wealth of new information on medications, including biologic response--modifiers, alternative and complementary approaches, and treatments for osteoporosis (which often accompanies rheumatoid arthritis), and they describe safe and effective ways to cope with pain, stiffness, and fatigue. The book helps readers understand their own emotional responses, as well as those of family and friends, and, because the disease often entails lifestyle changes, it provides practical advice for achieving as normal a life as possible.

With the latest information on medication, nutrition, and resources (online and off), this volume is a complete and comprehensive guide to the management of a difficult disease.
