Arthritis in Men
Arthritis is the inflammation in the joints which affects one or multiple joints. There are a hundred different types of it, each having its own causes and solutions. However, the two most common types of arthritis include- osteoarthritis (also known as OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (also known as RA). The symptoms for arthritis tend to develop over time, but in some cases, may appear suddenly. And arthritis is more commonly observed in people over 65 years of age, but they also might develop in young adults, children and teens. Arthritis is more common in overweight people, which explains the reason why men are likely to suffer from arthritis.
Causes of Arthritis
Cartilage, a firm but a connective flexible tissue in the joints, protects them by absorbing any pressure or shock falling on them, when the joints are subjected to movement and stress. Any reduction in this volume of this tissue tends to cause some form of arthritis.
Normal deterioration of the cartilage causes osteoarthritis. Joints more often than not are prone to an injury or an infection and this can trigger the natural breakage of the cartilage tissue. OA is hereditary and if your family has a history, the tendency of you getting it is that much higher.
On the other hand, rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune ailment where the immune system of the body attacks the tissues. These attacks tend to affect the fluid producing soft tissue, synovium which is useful in nourishing the cartilage and lubricating the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis destroys the joint eventually leading to destruction of the bone and the cartilage present inside the joint. The precise cause of what triggers RA is not known, but it is being linked to the genetics of humans.
Symptoms/Signs of Arthritis
Stiffness, swelling and joint pain are the most commonly seen arthritis symptoms. Arthritis also affects the motion range, along with causing redness of skin, in and around the joint area. In case of rheumatoid arthritis, one might feel tired and might experience a loss in appetite triggered by the inflammation of the immune system. RA might also trigger anemia and severe Rheumatoid arthritis can cause permanent joint deformity, if untreated.
Diagnosis/Identification of Arthritis
Arthritis is diagnosed by the doctor using a physical examination where he checks for limited motion range of the joints, presence of fluids around the joints and occurrence of warm or red joints. Doctors also frequently use imaging techniques like MRI, CT scans or X-rays to analyze the image of the bones and the cartilage produced.
