Diagnosing Rheumatoid Arthritis

According to Dr. Mascarenhas, rheumatoid arthritis is one of the most common forms of inflammatory arthritis treated in her practice. The condition tends to affect women more than men, with age of diagnosis occurring as early as the 20s or 30s and a spike in incidence among post-menopausal women.
