Elsa lets you become your own personal researcher by providing you with a better understanding around how lifestyle factors may affect your disease activity measurements for rheumatoid arthritis.

To support you from a scientific perspective, Elsa gives you access to data on rheumatic disease through the Riskminder foundation and scientific studies at Karolinska Institutet. Through this data you will be able to see, among other things, how the risk of rheumatic disease is affected by genetic, environment, and lifestyle factors. Lifestyle factors are of particularly great importance when it comes to understanding the effect of your medication against RA.

There is still a lot we don’t yet know about how lifestyle factors affect different individuals. Elsa is a new service that can help you better understand what matters most for you.

RA can strike at any age, despite common misconception, it is not a condition that is associated with ageing. We are kicking off #RAAW with this video of Phil, Tony, Fiona and Alice who were all diagnosed with RA, their ages of diagnosis span from 18 to 73. #AnyoneAnyAge
