Weight Loss for Quality of Life Improvement for Those Obese Persons with Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is sometimes aggravated by too much body weight. A recent report in the Clinical Rheumatology Journal shows that obesity diminishes the quality of life for those with rheumatoid arthritis. Therefore, it appears that weight loss programs directed at obese persons with rheumatoid arthritis may be a feasible service for weight loss or bariatric centers to offer.

The journal report indicated that even when adjustments are made for factors such as age and sex, obesity was shown to be an independent factor in lowering the quality of life for those with rheumatoid arthritis. Therefore, in their marketing campaigns, bariatric or weight loss centers should consider emphasizing the benefits of weight loss for those obese patients who also suffer from rheumatoid arthritis.

Hi there. Wow! These facts are great. I have learned a lot from it. On the other hand, I just want to ask you if you have heard about Julianne Kennedy's report on weight loss surgeries. I assumed that you will be interested in it. You can download it after you enter your e-mail address. This means that you are not required to click some ads or do things irrelevant. The report has made me realize on how weight loss has become a major issue worldwide. Click
