Dragon Claw aims to provide information, community and support for registered users.  The site is designed to minimise the stress and anxiety felt by many carers and patients suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus and Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA), diagnosed as medium to severe.  We use the term Rheumatoid Disease (RD) to cover the three diseases and to de-emphasise the term ‘arthritis’.  The term ‘arthritis’ is both misleading and fails to denote the wider aspects of the disease.

Please note, this site is not a medically accredited site and does not purport to provide medical or diagnostic advice.
