    1. The Arthritis Diet: Foods to Avoid
    I will start this tip with a list of foods to watch out for. While there over 100 different kinds of arthritis, they all have one thing in common. There are one or more foods that the sufferer is allergic to.
    2. Celebrex and Vioxx Potentially Fatal
    Celebrex and Vioxx were approved for the U.S. market back in 1999 for the treatment of arthritis and other types of pain. Both of the drugs constituted a new class of drugs called Cox-2 inhibitors.
    3. Fueling up with Water: The New Twist
    We have always been told that drinking eight 8-oz. glasses of water a day is essential to good health. As well, we have always been told that drinking soft drinks, coffee, tea and other liquid substitutes is not the answer.

Arthritis and Aging: Avoiding Disability

By J. R. Rogers

Recently I was reading some studies about aging and found some interesting information. Basically, this article was talking about the “markers” used to test risk factors of disability.

This study was interesting because it focused on participants between 70 and 89 years of age. What the researchers were broadly looking at was “mobility.” That is, the ability of a person to maintain healthy lower extremity functioning. As you know, from the hips down we can get into serious trouble with arthritis.

The “marker” set was for the individual to be able to walk at least 400 meters. ( About 1,300 feet) What was significant was that this yardstick is used for (all) overall physical functioning and the risk of becoming disabled.

Arthritis and avoiding the trap

By now, you all know that I strongly advocate the use of a high-quality liquid Glucosamine and exercise. Of course, a sensible diet helps as I have said over and over again. And I can think of very few exercise regimens that are easier to maintain than simple walking. It does not take equipment. And, it does not take much time. What it does take is some commitment.

Of course, lower extremity strength affects balance and as you likely know falls is a frequent cause of disability. So, given the great benefits and the low investment in time I have to wonder why people just do not get out and do it.

The balance issue was also addressed in this study as well. Namely, it concluded that those who are more active tend to avoid this risky business of falls. And, that even the most senior participants matched up well with much younger counterparts in terms of avoiding disability.

To the point, a high-quality liquid Glucosamine and a small investment of time pays big dividends both in the short term and long term.

In fact, after reading this article I think I am going to cut this short and go out for a little walk myself.

See you next time.

8 Tips to Control Arthritic Pain

These past months in The Arthritis Chronicle, I've talked about my Eight Day Arthritis Ecourse that I had written.
