Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder, where the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks its own cells – in this case, the cells that line joints.
Having an autoimmune disorder could increase the risk of developing other autoimmune conditions, like coeliac disease.
Coeliac disease is a lifelong condition, triggered by a reaction to gluten. Gluten is the name for proteins found in wheat, rye and barley.
