Understanding Arthritis: The Silent Menace Within by Dr. Omondi Oyoo

In Understanding Arthritis, Dr. Oyoo makes a spirited effort to demystify a disease many of his clients-and most Africans-are only now coming to terms with its destructive impact if left unattended. In simple language, he talks about arthritis in children, Rheumatoid arthritis, Reactive arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Gout, and Lupus. What you find in this book is a case of how each type of arthritis presents, its diagnosis, its treatment, the foods required for its management and education. Life can be lived better by understanding how this disease behaves!
