Arthritis Screening with Lab work
Nearly half of Americans are likely to develop arthritis in at least one knee by the age of 85. For people who are obese, the risk is greater. More than 46 million U.S. adults-more than 21% report ever being diagnosed with arthritis; and their ranks are expected to swell to 67 million adults with doctor diagnosed arthritis by 2030.
Symptoms of Arthritis:
Joint pain and progressive stiffness without noticeable swelling, chills or fever during normal activities probably indicate the gradual onset of symptoms of osteoarthritis.
Painful swelling, inflammation, and stiffness in the fingers, arms, legs, and wrists occurring in the same joints or both sides of the body, especially on awakening may be
signs of rheumatoid arthritis.
A powerful diagnostic tool for arthritis is a blood test called a Rheumatoid Factor (RF). Most people with Rheumatoid Arthritis have antibodies called Rheumatoid Factors (RF) in their blood.
USA Medical Care offers a physician evaluation as well as a complete set of labs to rule out Rheumatoid Arthritis for only…………………………….. $75 (compare at $350).
