Rheum-Autoimmune

Diagnosing rheumatic conditions can be challenging in the primary care setting. The signs and symptoms of rheumatic conditions, such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and scleroderma, are often non-specific and overlapping. Furthermore, lab interpretation can be confusing and time-consuming, often requiring multiple investigatory blood draws. Missing an early diagnosis can be devastating because rheumatic conditions can lead to serious organ damage when left untreated. True Health’s Rheum-Autoimmune test offering is specifically designed to streamline the diagnostic process for primary care clinicians.

Testing is Just the First Step

All too often, patients who are diagnosed with rheumatic conditions have been living with the disease for many years. Time matters because these conditions can severely impact a patient’s quality of life. In fact, 50% of patients with rheumatoid arthritis become work-disabled within the first ten years of the disease.4 Early implementation of a treatment plan can greatly improve a patient’s quality of life. This is why providing timely diagnoses and treatment is critical.

Health Management

How True Health Helps

Once a patient begins a treatment plan, monitoring and support for rheumatoid conditions is essential. This is where our health management program comes in. Our health and wellness professionals can help patients understand what their rheum-autoimmune lab results mean for them. Then, they can help patients follow specialized rheumatoid-focused lifestyle plans, which may include disease-specific nutrition guidelines or range-of-motion exercises. Our first priority is helping patients lead healthier, more comfortable lives.
