Osteoarthritis: How Weight Loss Can Help?
At the present moment, the treatment for osteoarthritis does not exist. Nevertheless, health experts suggest several steps that can help you manage the disease and improve the symptoms.
The most important step is to keep a healthy body weight. Overweight and obesity is a risk factor for the development of knee osteoarthritis. Excess body weight also makes the symptoms of the disease worse.
Fat, an active tissue, creates and releases chemicals that promote inflammation. These chemicals may affect the development of osteoarthritis. Excess weight increases the load on the knee joints and this can help to speed up the breakdown of cartilage. It also makes the joints more likely to wear down and damaged. Simple lifestyle changes can help to lose weight and this in its turn usually leads to the reduction of overall pain and improvement of mobility.
