Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/07/2016 -- Rheumatoid arthritis is one of the most painful and debilitating conditions nowadays. Many sufferers even live a reduced quality of life due to the condition. In addition to pain, there are many other undesirable consequences of having the condition.
According to Canadian research, RA sufferers are 50 percent more susceptible to diabetes. Diabetes is highly prevalent nowadays, especially in the United States. There are several risk factors of the condition such as obesity or excess weight.
Individuals who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis are already living a reduced quality of life due to pain. Those with diabetes also have struggles due to the condition. When people suffer from both conditions, life could be extremely difficult.
"Fortunately, there are remedies available nowadays that are thought to be helpful to sufferers," said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
The Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases publish a study that found individuals with rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, or other autoimmune forms of arthritis are more at risk of developing diabetes by 50 percent.
Researchers review the database of British Columbia and concentrated on the medical records from 1996 to 2006. It involved thousands of people with RA, psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis and those without rheumatic ailments.
The researchers tried to determine the level of diabetes risk involved. It was found that the risk of diabetes increased by 50 percent among those with rheumatic disease.
According to Daniel Solomon, M.D., the study author from the Division of Rheumatology, Brigham Women's Hospital, diabetes risk may increase with age as well as one's body mass index (BMI).
Individuals who are at risk of the condition should take measures to lose extra pounds and maintain a healthy weight. According to Dr. Solomon, inflammation in RA could potentially be linked with insulin resistance.
It is imperative that people should take measures to regain their health and increase their immunity against RA and diabetes. There are actually several ways to reduce one's risk of these conditions. One is to simply maintain a healthy weight.
Nowadays, the use of pain medications has been extremely popular among individuals with arthritis. However, due to the side effects associated with their use more and more people are resorting to natural alternative for these medications.
One of the most popular natural remedies for arthritis nowadays is glucosamine. Glucosamine is a widely used supplement by arthritis sufferers and athletes. It is believed to help reduce pain and improve one's mobility.
The most recommended glucosamine supplements are those that have other natural ingredients such as methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), which fights pain and inflammation (www.amazon.com/Glucosamine-Sulfate-Supplement-2000mg-serving/dp/B0126ZF0B0/)
