Obesity in Rheumatoid Arthritis Patients Hastens Disability
Severely obese rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients experienced more rapidly progressing disability than overweight patients, says a study on adults with the condition. The disability was not due to signs of arthritis like the amount of inflammation in their joints. Also, the weight loss that occurred after the patients enrolled in the study was also associated with worsening disability, possibly as a sign of frailty.
