Arthritis prevention diet

Arthritis is an immune system ailment, characterized by inflammation in tissues that cover joints.  Deformations can develop, particularly in areas that bend, such as knees, ankles, finders, wrists, elbows and shoulders.  The neck and back can also be affected and become inflamed, which can cause pain in the bones and spinal cord.  It can appear suddenly or gradually from an infection, genetics or as a result of growing older.

There are different types of arthritis, but we’ll discuss the most common types: osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

This type of arthritis is related to aging.  Overtime, with the use of joints, cartilage that is found near the bones begins deteriorating, and the area that was protected and soft, becomes rough, causing bones to begin to rub together, which leads to deformations in the joints that hold them together.

Tendons, ligaments and muscles that surround the joints become weaker, the tissues become inflamed and the joints begin hurting.  Osteoarthritis is generally present after age 40 and affects women three times more often then men.

Rheumatoid arthritis
This is a type of inflamed arthritis that attacks the membranes and tissues that surround the joints.  The body repairs the damaged tissue with scarred tissue that impedes the joints’ movement.

The whole body is affected, with affects such as fatigue, weight loss, fever and pain.  Generally, this appears in people under age 40, including kids.  Twice as many women suffer this type of arthritis as men.  Youth rheumatoid arthritis affects thousands of kids under age 18, and is six times more present in young girls than young boys.  It is generally associated with physical or emotional stress, poor diet or bacterial infection.

Another form of arthritis is gout, which generally affects people who are overweight or that consume too much protein (most form red meat) or alcohol.

It generally causes pain in fingers and toes.  Crystal deposits of uric acid appear and create a sensation of heat and intense pain.
This ailment affects men tour times as much as women.
