Uric Acid - Arthritis Its Debilitating and Detrimental Effects
B>Arthritis: Its Debilitating and Detrimental Effects[/b] Did you know that Arthritis is one of the most disabling diseases? It's true! Arthritis currently affects more than 40 million Americans and that figure is expected to rise to 60 million by the year 2,020. It is imperative that you read this article and find out what this devastating disease is truly about. </br>

[b]Many People Mistakenly Believe that Arthritis is a Disease that Only Affects the Elderly

This simply isn't the case. Yes it's true that seniors, especially senior women, are effected the greatest by Osteoarthritis, yet the average age for onset of Arthritis is 47 years old, and sufferers are generally afflicted between the ages of 20-50. Sadly, even infants have been diagnosed with forms of Arthritis. </br> It is not necessary that only the learned can write about Arthritis Gout. As long as one ahs a flair for writing, and an interest for gaining information on Arthritis Gout, anyone can write about it.

Arthritis: What it Is[/b]</br> Basically, Arthritis is inflammation of the joints. There are currently over 100 forms of Arthritis and remarkably, that number continues to rise. The most common forms of Arthritis include: Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Gout (see our next article, "Symptoms of Arthritis" for more information). Osteoarthritis is the result of degenerative joint disease, or simply "wear and tear" on the joints. Rheumatoid Arthritis is the result of an over active Immune System that results in inflammation. Gout is the oldest form of Arthritis and is the result of too much Uric Acid. The Uric Acid deposits crystals in the joints, leading to "Gouty Arthritis". The joint pain, inherent to all Arthritis sufferers, is referred to as "Arthralgia". Not only are the joints susceptible to attack, but the surrounding muscles, tissues, and organs are vulnerable to the effects of Arthritis as well. In fact, Arthritis has been known to attack the heart, kidneys, lungs, and liver. </br>
  • The cost of Arthritis is not only measured in the loss of quality of life, but it is also measured by dollars and cents as well.
  • It is estimated that over $150,000 is lost by an individual over the course of a lifetime due to the debilitating effects of Arthritis.
  • This is totaled by lost wages, medical treatments, and the cost of medically based needs and care. </br>
