Rheumatoid Arthritis is the most common type of autoimmune disease that affects about 0.92% of the adult population in India. It is a chronic inflammatory disorder that can affect more than one joint. In some patients, the condition can damage a wide variety of body systems including the skin, eyes, lungs, heart, and blood vessels.
