Another risk factor is identified for developing the auto-immune disease rheumatoid arthritis, and experts are waving a flag at doctors to discuss it with their patients.
Doctors discuss the risks of developing heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and a host of other problems with their obese and overweight patients, but one more terrible disease is included in the melee of diseases… rheumatoid arthritis.
A recent study published in Arthritis Care and Research showed that people who are obese are more than 1.2 times at greater risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis.
Considering that other diseases already put a person at increased risk of developing auto-immune complications like RA, this risk factor is one that doctors are starting to take note of and include in the warnings to their obese patients.
