From 5.00 pm      Joint pain – Do I have rheumatism?

It doesn’t  always take swollen joints to diagnose rheumatoid arthritis. In an early stage of RA, disease specific autoantibodies (ACPA) could be present in the blood increasing the risk of disease. Based on a blood survey this can be checked within minutes. We will inform about the disease and the possibilities and chances of early recognition.
