The crux of effective rheumatoid arthritis management is early diagnosis and early initiation of DMARD therapy. Because no definitive diagnostic test for rheumatoid arthritis is available, proper diagnosis is based on a combination of clinical, laboratory, and radiographic findings. Early diagnosis is crucial so that an appropriately aggressive treatment regimen may be instituted early and irreversible damage may be limited. The ultimate objectives of treatment are to halt disease progression and maintain the patient's function.
