Abstract

There are at least 60,000 juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JA) patients in the United States. Although poor growth has been reported, few studies have related it to dietary deficiencies. We report results of a pilot study in which children whose weight and height were decreased had diets deficient in calories, calcium, and iron.
