I disagree- you can die from RA- generally from secondary conditions that develop because of it.   Example: If your SED Rate stays in the 40's for approximately 6ish months the rate of a heart attack goes up.  Then there is the possibility of developing Diabetes which is very dangerous also... There are myriad ways that RA can/ does end or reduce life span. These are unlikely but possible.  We just want our doctor's to be honest with us!
