It is usually passed down the family.
People don't die from arthritis. However atrthritis can lead to other conditions that can kill you or cause you to die younger then you normally would. these condition can be …the result of infections caused by damage related to the disease. there are also side effects to some of the drugs that are used to treat some forms of arthritis that can be deadly or at least toxic.
The problem with that question is that we don't know what actually causes arthritis. It is understood that some people tend to have a weakness in that direction and there is a…lso a genetic factor involved at times. The evidence however points not so much at what a person does to their joints, because some people get trouble with arthritis and some don't, even doing the same thing. It would seem that the weakness has to be there to form the problem in the first place and you cant tell until it becomes a problem.
Nearly every person on earth will be affected by some sort of arthritis during their life time from young people to older people. the older you get the more likely you are to …develop it.
arthritis in one form or another can strike just about anyone. The cause of most forms of arthritis is still not known so we can not predict where it may strike.
There is no place in the world where there is not some form of arthritis It is evenly spread.
It is caused by the inflammation in the joints. The more inflamed the joints are, the stiffer and more painful they become.
On average about one to two percent of any population is affected by RA with about 2/3rds of those being women.
There is no scientific evidence that location makes any difference to people that have arthritis.
Twins, drug-babies and people who click their fingers.
About 1 1/2% of the population of the world has RA
Ok I'm doing this reaserch project on arthritis but i can't find How many people per year suffer from arthritis?
The problem you are faced with is that there are over a hundred different forms of arthritis. The bigest one being osteoarthritis which is often associated with the results of… wear and tear or trauma. this is non inflammatory arthritis then you have inflamatory forms of arthritis like rheumatoid arthritis which is an autoimmune disease, a different disease altogether, there is also gouty arthritis which happens when there is exes uric acid in the blood and the list goes on and on. You will have to find out what the average is for every different form of arthritis. The one advantage in your favor is that arthritis of every kind is evenly distributed throughout the world with Usualy little difference between nationalitys.
It might be difficult, but they sign like everyone else, or use a simplfied version like ASL rather than SEL (a more exacting method).
Arthritis can be disabling, but it is not fatal. People do not die from it.
There are no real accurate numbers on this. This is partially due to employee privacy and partially due to medical privacy. An employee is not required to tell an employer… that they have RA. Between 15 to 20% of people with RA, when surveyed, state that it has no effect on their jobs. Many people do stay full-time employed after an RA diagnosis. When properly managed, a patient can potentially stay in the work force for quite some time. Occupational therapy is also available to extend the amount of time a person with RA is able to work. Many people with RA see employment as a way to keep going. In a recent survey of 700 employees with RA, 85% of them felt having a job helped them to manage their symptoms better. Unfortunately, about 50% of those surveyed felt it was a struggle to stay working. Also, 30% felt they may have to stop work due to related developing disabilities. In addition to pain, RA can cause fatigue and other issues. This does cause some people to cut back to part time. If the disease reaches the point that it is attacking other parts of the body or causing joint deformities, it may become necessary to leave. People with severe RA often qualify for disability benefits.
