Rheumatic Fever can cause severe problems to your body. From a simple infection of the throat due to certain streptococcus (strep throat), untreated cases may develop to rheumatic fever, and repeated incidents may advance to problems on your heart valves. It could be a life-threatening matter once it involves the heart. The heart, as we all know, is a vital organ, responsible to supply blood rich in oxygen and nutrients to every cell, tissue, and organ in the body. By the time its function is disturbed, the whole body could really be affected, and the health of the individual would suffer. If you, or a loved one, are suffering from rheumatic fever, this book guides you through the causes, tests, and available treatment options for this life-threatening disease.
