Only 1 in 5 Seek Treatment for Raynaud's

Sep 24, 2015 12:16 pm

October is Raynaud's Awareness Month according to the Raynaud's Association (http://www.raynauds.org), and a whopping 80 percent of sufferers are not aware they have the disorder and do not seek treatment. The Raynaud's Associations estimates that Raynaud's affects 15-30 million people (5-10% of the population).  By contrast recent publications suggest the prevalence of primary Raynaud's is 4.85%.
