People Visit Rheumatoid Arthritis Specialists Less Than Expected
In a new shocking report, it has been concluded that about 60% of the Ontario residents suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, do not get in touch with a specialist in the hour of need.
This delay and the practice of not being able to access the doctor prevail, in spite of the availability of effective drugs and the knowledge of importance of early treatment.
The patients of Rheumatoid arthritis suffer from painful joint inflation, as it is a debilitating autoimmune disease. Toronto-based St. Michael's Hospital, the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences and Women's College Hospital unveiled the report.
The early detection and treatment of the disorder is very important, as, if not treated on time, it causes bone erosion, joint deformity and in extreme cases, disability. The report's lead author Gillian Hawker, Physician-in-Chief of Medicine and Rheumatologist at Women's College Hospital in Toronto said that the early treatment is stressed, as it is a chronic condition.
It was found that for females, the age, income and address, affects the time and the frequency of contacting a rheumatologist.
Also, the report suggests that females of child-bearing age go to see a rheumatologist less often, as compared to the 45 years old and elder females.
Surprisingly, the women of low-income group visited specialists more, than higher-income women.
