Smoking, Obesity Make RA Harder to Control

Remission in RA patientscan be harder to achieve in those who are overweight or smoke, according to a recent study.

However, all three factors influenced how much symptoms improved over time. The most dramatic differences in symptoms were seen in patients who were overweight or obese and smoked, the study found.

New Research: Obesity May Reduce the Chance of RA Remission by as Much as Half

People withrheumatoid arthritis(RA) who are obese are less likely to achieve disease remission than their non-obese counterparts, according to a meta-analysis published in May in关节炎护理与研究。The review also found that obesity was associated with higher levels of disease activity and pain, suggesting excess weight may negatively affect overall outcomes in RA. This meta-analysis supports earlier research, including astudypresented at the 2015 annual meeting of the American College of Rheumatology.
