Life expectancy of RA patients? I have studied that life gets reduced by 10 years and out of all deaths, half are due to heart diseases. How true is it?
Of course, a lot: Depends on at what age a person is diagnosed and how severe it is.

RA patients are also susceptible to infection, lung disease and maybe some cancers. One can not be precise about the years of shortened-life due to the disease severity and duration issues. Best wishes:) ...Read more

What are the effects of cholesterol, saturated fat and lack of fitness on someone with heart disease?
