World Arthritis Week (WAW) is a global awareness-raising week..

We would have a monthlong awareness campaign through the entire month of October.

Todays talks will be on Immuno Suppressants / Nutrition Talk & Ankylosing Spondylitis

  • The drugs work by suppressing a patient’s overactive immune system which attacks its human host. The current advice for patients is to continue their rheumatology treatments and this advice remains unchanged. Any patient thinking of changing or stopping their medication should discuss this with their rheumatologist as the benefits of remaining on therapy are still thought to outweigh the risks.
  • While the number of people with arthritis is growing, the need for accurate information on nutrition and exercise is as well. Following a healthy diet and physical activity recommendations is essential for treatment, to maintain quality of life, and may help with prevention.
  • Ankylosing spondylitis (pronounced ank-kih-low-sing spon-dill-eye-tiss),  or AS, is a form of arthritis that primarily affects the spine, although other joints can become involved. It causes inflammation of the spinal joints (vertebrae) that can lead to severe, chronic pain and discomfort.
