Hi, I am Canadian and find the policies regarding treatment varies quite dramatically. Here, even if you have a drug plan medical services (MSP) determines when a Rheumy can prescribe Biologics. I have seropositive and very severe RD, My CCP antibodies are at 300. I was diagnosed in July 2015. I have been seeing Rheumatalogist, Neurologist, Opthomolagist etc ...and endless tests still in progress. Autoimmune diseases are very complex and overlap, many of us have multiple conditions concurrently. My Rheumy is American. I am 55 yrs old and she is without question the most companionate caring Doctor I have ever met. My wish for each and everyone of you is to find someone you trust and please follow recommendations regarding treatment. These conditions can affect your entire system. Not only joints. I think there is no reason to not try any natural remedy if it helps but do not stop treatment without first examining the possible. On sequences.
