Rheumatoid Arthritis Sufferers More At Risk Of Reduced Kidney Function
(EMAILWIRE.COM, July 27, 2015 ) Orlando, FL -- Rheumatoid arthritis is one of the arthritic conditions that is continually making many people suffer. This condition does not just cause pain and discomfort, but also reduces the quality of life of sufferers. Unfortunately, it appears that there are more disadvantages to having the condition.
Rheumatoid arthritis sufferers are believed to be more at risk of reduced kidney function. People often complain of experiencing pain caused by RA. However, they need to consider that there may be something else worse than pain.
According to the recent study published by the American Journal of Kidney Diseases, individuals with rheumatoid arthritis are nearly 5 percent more prone to reduced kidney function than other people. A reduced kidney function is one of the signs of having a chronic disease. While 5 percent doesn't appear high, Eric Matteson, M.D., believes it is significant. Matteson is the chair of the rheumatology department at Mayo Clinic, and he also added that it is a big deal, considering there are about 1.5 million individuals who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis.
"Individuals with rheumatoid arthritis are resorting to various remedies just to achieve pain relief. Life would become more difficult if they also suffered from kidney disease," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
Chronic kidney disease is characterized by the gradual loss of kidney function, which eventually leads to kidney failure. It can develop due to a number of conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, inflammation within the kidney, and autoimmune processes. There were previous studies that suggested the high risk of kidney disease among RA sufferers is due to their exposure to certain medications and chronic inflammation.
Researchers analyzed the records of individuals with rheumatoid arthritis and evaluated their kidney function. It was found that 25 percent of individuals with rheumatoid arthritis and 20 percent of those without the condition developed moderately or mildly reduced kidney function over 20 years. It was also found that the sufferers who had high levels of inflammation within a year after their RA diagnosis were also more susceptible to developing reduced kidney function.
Nowadays, people are getting smarter in taking care of their health. There are many things that people do to increase their immunity against a variety of ailments. There are also many rheumatoid arthritis sufferers who take advantage of natural remedies, such as curcumin supplements. Curcumin is a key ingredient of turmeric and is popularized by the therapeutic ingredients it contains, namely the antibacterial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties (amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI/).
