Arthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis
Arthritis is called joint pain. There are 100 types of arthritis, which have different risks and symptoms, but the most common are degenerative osteoarthritis, ie caries of the joints and the second type of inflammatory arthritis (the most common type of rheumatoid arthritis). Due to this, both the suffering and suffering comes more on the part of women. One out of every four women has arthritis. Osteoarthritis catches women at an older age, but their pain is much greater, whereas rheumatoid arthritis makes three times more number of patients than men.
While men suffer from pain in the joints of the hips, women suffer more in the joints of the knees and hands, which of course disrupts their daily activities to a great extent.
Women need to be more careful and safe. While their hormone fluctuations increase their risk, rapid increase in weight also increases difficulties.
A weight gain of one kilo in the body causes five times more pressure on the knees.
Why osteoarthritis occurs
The bones of our joints have a flexible layer of tissue called cartilage. It protects our couples from shaking during activities. When this layer is damaged, it weakens and the joints are less flexible, making their movements less comfortable and painful. Increased weight is one cause of cartilage damage and the other is an exercise-less, dysfunctional lifestyle. Osteoarthritis is caused by an infection or by damage to the cartilage. Among the reasons for rheumatoid arthritis, the immune system is reactive because only the cells and tissues attack the organs. It is a blood-related disease and can affect any organ, even causing 30 percent of the lung damage. Autoimmune diseases (including rheumatoid arthritis) need to be identified early. In addition to delayed limb deformity, permanent malfunction, joints being permanently gripped, sometimes life can also be at risk.
The diagnosis Medications (DMARDS) and exercise (physical activity) play a major role in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. If medicines are taken regularly, a balanced diet is exercised and then gradually the disease is controlled.
Medicines for a few autoimmune diseases are also discontinued, so the disease can be kept under control by gradually reducing some.
– Every patient or healthy person should exercise at least forty minutes every day. Better to play a physical activity sport like bandminton or table tennis everyday. Sports maintain the positivity of man to fight, win and stay in the game.
– Can also do walking, yoga etc. While exercise increases immunity, it also enhances the effect of drugs.
Eating balanced homemade food, distance from cold, stale, old and prized foods is beneficial for health.
