What Causes Rheumatoid Arthritis?

rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is a joint disease which can cause pain, swelling and stiffness in the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis spreads due to a faulty autoimmune response where your body will start to attack many different cells around your joints, thinking it’s a foreign organism. This can make many day-to-day tasks much harder and unpleasant to perform. Rheumatoid arthritis never stays exclusively in one place but can spread to other joints around the body quickly, and it does this by travelling through blood vessels in the body, this was shown in a study at the Kerckho­ff-clinic. Rheumatoid arthritis affects the synovial tissues in joints, these create synovial fluid which is needed for normal joint function. Your immune system then attacks this tissue causing severe damage to the synovial joints stopping them from creating the fluid necessary for normal joint function. Further studies have shown that the majority of Rheumatoid arthritis patients contract this disease from their genetics. In fact, 101 genetic areas have been identified that associate with the RA disease. You can explore more information on RA you can visit the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society or NHS site.

But what causes rheumatoid arthritis?

However, there is a large amount of research which pushes the idea that RA isn’t just contracted genetically. Several items we willingly take into our bodies can cause the onset of RA. One of the most notable causes of rheumatoid arthritis, especially in women more than men, is Hormones. Hormones can have a big effect on the development of rheumatoid arthritis. But, oddly enough, RA doesn’t develop during pregnancy but can develop shortly after birth. This shows some hormonal involvement and is why researchers believe that the cause of RA is partly hormonal.

Another factor which seems to affect the development of rheumatoid arthritis is smoking. Smoking appears to increase the chances of developing RA and shows signs that it can aggravate already present RA creating painful nodules on the joints in your body. Although cigarettes can have a positive product for those with RA, it seems to have beneficial effects on pain and joint tenderness. This suggests why such a large number of those who have rheumatoid arthritis are smokers and could find it hard to give up due to the pain relief it provides. Smoking can also create nasty flare-ups which, for a short period of time, will create a great deal of pain with possible inflammation in your joints. Rheumatoid arthritis commonly affects the area near bone and cartilage, so inflammation can cause a great deal of pain with even a small movement. A red meat-rich diet also has links to RA. Researchers suggest that a more fruit-filled diet will help to prevent RA, as rheumatoid arthritis is less common in those who have a high vitamin C intake.

How can Tenura help?

Tenura products are designed to help with joint stiffness and make everyday tasks simple again. One perfect example of this is our silicone jar and bottle openers. These high-quality devices allow you to create a strong non-slip surface around many different products, this non-slip surface will make lid and tops much easier to open. This is due to the strong non-slip bond our material creates with jar and bottle lids. This level of non-slip grip cannot be rivalled with normal household equipment, making Tenura jar and bottle openers a vital piece of equipment in the home.
