Osteoarthritis in Women

 

Did you know that arthritis is the most common and disabling condition in American women? Arthritis affects over 40 million Americans. The most common form of arthritis that affects the aging female baby boomers is Osteoarthritis. Experts estimate that about 27 million Americans suffer from OA and about 60% of them are women.

Why women? A woman and a man’s body are very different in many ways. Women’s hips are wider than their knees, and their knee joints are not aligned as straight as a man’s. Therefore, the alignment of a women’s body can lead to a high rate of knee injuries. Researchers also believe that female hormones can affect their cartilage. “Experts have found that the female hormone estrogen protects cartilage from inflammation; inflammation can lead to OA, but after menopause when a women’s estrogen levels go down they lose that production;” according to Yusuf Yazici, MD.

What exactly is Osteoarthritis? “OA, also known as degenerative joint disease (DJD) is a progressive disorder of the joints caused by gradual loss of cartilage and resulting in the development of bony spurs and cysts at the margins of the joints.”
The most highly recommended steps to living a healthy and active lifestyle with OA, is to get motivated and stay in shape! A small amount of exercise is always good for the body and the heart! Many people with all types of arthritis are searching for a more natural approach to help relieve their pain, rather than masking it with NSAID’s. Liquid Glucosamine has been in the spotlight for many years now and is highly recommended by many professionals. Liquid Glucosamine is designed for joint and cartilage protection and growth. Our bodies produce its own Glucosamine, but over time this production can slow dramatically.
