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.

Vi på Elsa älskar forskning och tror att en välinformerad patient är en starkare patient. Relevant information ökar nyfikenheten för RA.
