I'm sorry to hear about the plight of your grandmother. It is very sad when an elderly relative is suffering.


Actually, RA can develop at any age. I was diagnosed at the age of 45, and a friend's granddaughter was diagnosed aged just 10 years old. And while diet can help minimise symptoms, it's not always effective. Sometimes there are days when you just can't be proactive with RA - I know, I've had more of those kind of days than I can count.



I stated it 'usually' develops in old age, I didn't discount the fact it can develop in younger age. Your friend's grandaughter's case is extremely rare.

Rheumatoid arthritis is a modern disease, it was unknown among our ancestors. Bad diet etc has created these genetic mutations which are passed on through the generations.
