Still time to complete our osteoporosis poll!

Are you over 45, have RA, (female/male) and were diagnosed before you were 45? If so, there's still time to take part in our poll:

A research paper from the States recently reported that people with RA were not being adequately screened and treated for possible osteoporosis, which is a risk factor for people with RA, and we want to get a feel for whether or not this might be similar in the UK. Our CEO, Ailsa, has also been invited to speak to staff at the National Osteoporosis Society (NOS) and will present the findings from this poll.

Thank you to all those who have already completed it. A number of people have asked for more information on this subject and we will put together an information sheet in the autumn with help from our friends at the NOS, so please bear with us. If you need urgent advice, please contact your GP or rheumatology team, or visit NOS at

Many thanks,
