Osteoarthritis is an inflammatory arthritis. This disease usually begins slowly, over months or years. The most commonly affected joints are the knees, wrist joints and hip.
Gout is a disease associated with the metabolic disorders (often hereditary) and in 9-10 times more common in men than in women. Gout attacks usually affect only one joint, this can be the knees or elbows.
Rheumatoid arthritis occurs in young patients and affects multiple joints, often brush.
Osteoarthritis can occur due to various factors, including abrasion of joints, which occurs over time. With the aging, the joints "wear out" due to the constant, long-term friction. Osteoarthritis is very typical for the elderly people. Rheumatoid arthritis can originate due to failures in the immune system. Gout is the result of constantly elevated levels of uric acid in the body.
Symptoms of osteoarthritis include swelling, changes in the structure of the joint that cause pain, damage and loss of joint function. Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis include redness, swelling, pain and loss of function, as well as damage of the joint. Gout is characterized by inflammation, severe pain in the joints and redness of the joint.
How should we treat arthritis?
You can use different methods to support the joints and improve their condition. It can be tires, bandages, wiring. Support for the arch of the foot and heel cushions can lower stress on the joints and relieve pain.
Moderate physical activity will reduce pain, make joints more flexible and improve overall health. The amount of physical activity depends mostly of the degree of the disease. In any case, you should reduce the amount of stress. Physical activity will help you to fight with stress. Patients that suffer from obesity should lose weight, as overweight causes pain in the knees and the joints of the pelvis. People with arthritis should avoid foods rich in animal fat and protein as well as alcoholic beverages.

– Violations of purine metabolism in children.
– Urate nephropathy with impaired renal function (renal failure).
Symptoms of arthritis may also vary depending on the form of the disease and its type, but the pain in the joints is the inevitable companion of any arthritis.
