Bel Marra Health supports recent research that shows the tie between obesity and rheumatoid arthritis.
In a study published in the journal Arthritis Research and Therapy, the association between obesity and rheumatoid arthritis was examined in a study population consisting of patients positively diagnosed with arthritis.
The study consisted of approximately 196 patients who were examined for joint pain and other risk factors for cardiovascular disease such as insulin, blood glucose, and cholesterol levels, as well as body mass index.
The results of the study showed that rheumatoid arthritis was associated with an increased risk of obesity. The excessive weight of these study participants may be due to the pain caused by rheumatoid arthritis, which decreases their capacity to engage in physical activities and exercises that are generally considered as effective measure to lose weight.
The risk of obesity in these rheumatoid arthritis patients also increases the likelihood of developing insulin resistance, which in turn may affect the control of blood glucose levels. Sept 2011)
