Can You Die From Rheumatoid Arthritis?

By June 25, 2013

Follow me on:

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic disease. It is not generally considered a fatal or terminal disease. Except for one important fact -- rheumatoid arthritis is linked to a higher risk of complications that can be associated with death. Life expectancy is reduced in rheumatoid arthritis patients, largely due to these complications.

Does every rheumatoid arthritis patient develop one or more potentially fatal complications? No, but the risk is higher than for people without rheumatoid arthritis. Learn more in Rheumatoid Arthritis and Death.
