In the 2013 RA in America study of over 1,000 people, we asked participants how their RA had impacted their life. We looked at these data two separate ways: one was for people with sever RA (Stage 3 or 4) and the other was for those with mild RA (Stage 1 or 2). Although the impact is high for both groups, not surprisingly the impact of RA is greater in the more sever group.
