Arthritis is a disease of the joints that strikes adults particularly those in their golden years. This condition, however, has been observed to strike the younger ones in recent years.
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis affecting millions of people worldwide. It affects the protective cartilage located on the ends of bones particularly in the hands, neck, lower back, knees and hips. A study done by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showed that in 2005, 13.9 percent of adults aged more than 25 years and 33.6 percent of people more than 65 years old suffered from osteoarthritis. While there’s no cure for this condition, there are treatments available that help slow the progression of the disease and relieve pain.
Thanks to various supplements available on the market today, people suffering from arthritis are given hope and relief of their joint pain. One of them is Finitro Forte Plus, a nutritional supplement especially developed for people with joint problems.
A representative for Finitro said “We want nothing more than for science to be able to say ‘we’ve done it, we’ve cured this problem for everyone, now and going forward,’ but the reality is that medicine is not there yet. The whole reason we exist to try and give people a means to manage their pain until a permanent solution is found.”
“In the meantime, studies like the one done by the EULAR are good, because they provide science with the steps needed to keep working for a cure, and they provide those suffering with simple, safe advice on the best way to mitigate their pain. Until we have a definite, solid answer to this ailment, the more eyes on it, and the more safe suggestions for its treatment, the better,” the Finitro representative added.
A major international study published in the Eular Congress News that covered 23 countries and more than 3,500 rheumatoid patients pointed out the need for physicians to consider the effects of obesity on rheumatoid arthritis when creating development management plans for their patients. The study found that an increase in body mass index (BMI) was closely linked to increased disease activity. For this reason, the researchers encouraged physicians to give lifestyle and weight loss advice to their obese patients particularly during the consultation stage. [Read more…]
