Abstract

The objective of the study was to assess trends in functional disability (FD) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) vs individuals without RA. This retrospective population-based study included 586 patients with RA and 531 individuals without RA. Information on activities of daily living was obtained from self-report questionnaires. The prevalence of FD was higher in those with RA (586 [26%]) vs those without RA (531 [11%]) at RA incidence/index date (P<.001), with persistent excess over the follow-up and calendar time. Patients with RA had a 15% or higher prevalence of FD than individuals without RA in most age groups. Patients with RA have a higher prevalence of FD across RA duration, age, and calendar time than those without RA.
