Ending the confusion that Rheumatoid Disease is a type of arthritis.
What if no one confused rheumatoid disease with just arthritis?
What if the world understood that people with rheumatoid disease (RD) are not hypochondriacs because they have so many health problems?
What if all of the effects of the disease were treated – and not dismissed or ignored?
Rheumatoid Arthritis Unmasked documents extra-articular disease through medical literature.
The facts in Rheumatoid Arthritis Unmasked shatter the myth that rheumatoid disease is just a type of arthritis. You will learn 10 key dangers that prove the historical term rheumatoid disease (RD) describes a complex systemic disease with arthritis as only one of its symptoms.
Patients will be armed to fight against becoming a victim of the RD mortality gap.
Doctors will know how to better diagnose and treat RD.
Friends and family will understand that a loved one with RD has a serious disease.
KELLY’S JOURNEY TO RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS UNMASKED WAS TYPICAL AT FIRST
Like most people diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), Kelly had no idea what she was in for. When years of suspicious symptoms turned into full-blown RA in 2006, her life changed in an instant. Instead of the strength and wellbeing she had cherished, she faced severe joint pain and endless battles with her health.
The struggles were made worse by the reactions of loved ones and neighbors who dismissed RA as a minor concern to be cured with Tylenol. Sometimes even doctors didn’t get it. She felt her symptoms were ignored, or worse yet doubted, at every turn.
She felt alone because she didn’t know anyone else like her. Even though her own grandfather had had RA, she realized now that she knew nothing of what he went through.
Like so many patients in the digital age, Kelly began to research her disease. And like many, she got to know other patients through social media and her blog. Over the years as she continued to study and her community grew, she began to see first-hand the bigger picture of RA as a disease – a disease that harms people and cuts lives short. It was unmistakable: rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is actually rheumatoid disease (RD).
Kelly had to share what she learned. She realized writing this book had to come before other projects or books she wanted to finish. Rheumatoid Arthritis Unmasked tackles the one topic that can address both the persistent minimizing of the disease and its tragic mortality gap.
e-patient Dave deBronkart: “I admire deeply your ability to collect information, express feelings, write clearly and compelling, and point to why it matters. That’s what the best change agents do, and you’re tops.”
Dr. Tessa Richards, Assistant Editor, BMJ Editorial: “I think we owe you many thanks for your leading example of how valuable it is to listen to patients and showing how much we can learn from them.”
Randy, living with RD: “Kelly is a true champion in every sense of the word and much of my knowledge has been a result of her vigilant research.”
Rheumatoid Arthritis Unmasked solves a primary problem for people living with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), the false impression that they are only fighting a type of arthritis.
You’ll understand how the fallacy of “arthritis” not only creates communication problems for people fighting RD, but also contributes to the devastating mortality gap by hindering needed clinical care and research that will lead to a cure.
Rheumatoid Arthritis Unmasked exposes the true nature of RD revealed in medical research.
Rheumatoid Arthritis Unmasked is more than a gripping account of the dangers of RD – it is a path for change. This book equips all RA warriors to guide their own medical care and safeguard their health. This book will arm you with facts that will save lives.

This book is the result of extensive research and years of experience helping patients one on one, while facing the challenges of living with rheumatoid disease myself. To bring you this exclusive investigation of the effects of rheumatoid disease beyond the joints, I read hundreds more research articles and scientific studies. As a result, I have a unique perspective to tell you the story that has never been told before, making this an exceptional book that finally sets the record straight.
This is the first book to ever document that rheumatoid disease (or RA) is not a type of arthritis – and that it is typical to be afflicted beyond one’s joints. It warns both patients and doctors of specific dangers to address.
Almost 600 footnotes. 250 pages. No fluff. This book is worth at least as much as any textbook – usually costing over a hundred dollars.
