Is There A Relationship Between Rheumatoid Arthritis And Osteoarthritis?

good afternoon, sorry to ask, why does rheumatoid arthritis cause osteoatritis? Thank you in advance

1 Answer:

Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Osteoarthritis is a disease of arthritis that occurs due to cartilage damage. In general, cartilage is in joints and serves as a cushion, to avoid direct friction between one bone to another. Due to certain factors, there is damage to this cartilage, which causes no more bone-to-bone protection. That is what causes the emergence of pain, because the shift between bones without protection.


Among the triggering factors for this condition are:

Age above 50 years
Suffer from other arthritis conditions, such as gout or rheumatoid arthritis.

Female sex
History of injury to the joint
Excessive weight gain
Heredity
Bone defect.
Work or physical activity that makes a person experience pressure at a certain point continuously


So it is true that rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is one of the factors that can trigger the condition of osteoarthritis. This is because RA is a condition of joint inflammation that occurs because the immune system attacks itself. No one knows why a person's immune system does this, but the result is a reduction in joint oil-producing layers, damage to connective tissue between bones (ligaments), damage to connective tissue with joints (tendons), and also damage to cartilage. This disease can make the joints lose shape, and with the destruction of cartilage, osteoarthritis develops.


In addition, if your question is in an academic context, this forum cannot be used as a valid reference. You should look for sources from literature or other references, and only use this forum as a trigger. So, hopefully answering your question.
