Random Mayo Facts

scary LOTR moments

I was derping around the internet doing some research on the Mayo clinic and found some interesting facts.

It’s common knowledge that RA comes with all sorts of fun little add ons. However one of the largest complications of RA besides joint damage is heart failure. “Rheumatoid arthritis patients also have a 50 percent higher risk of heart attack and twice the danger of heart failure, Mayo researchers say.” In an effort to reduce this risk I have been attempting to do some cardio oriented exercises in addition to taking COQ10 supplements on a regular basis.

Regarding the prognosis of RA as a whole in how it affects ones life Mayo research states, “1 of every 5 rheumatoid arthritis patients is unable to work two years after diagnosis, and within five years, that rises to one-third. Life expectancy drops by up to five years.”
