Here is another reason to lose weight if you have AR …
Patients with early RA who are overweight may be less likely to achieve rapid control of the disease.
Nancy Walsh at MedPage Today reported that research published in the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases suggests that individuals "diagnosed with early rheumatoid arthritis who were overweight were less likely to achieve rapid control of the disease." The researchers found that "those whose body mass index (BMI) was 25 kg / m2 or more at the time of diagnosis had a 33% lower chance of achieving a low activity of the disease in 3 months than those of normal weight. "The data indicated that" at 6 months, they had a 51% less chance of achieving this status. "
Comment: Yes, I know I sound like a broken record, but obesity aggravates everything.
