The latest data shows that more than 30 million patients in rheumatism in my country are the second roughly disabled disease after cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. From the perspective of incidence, women’s incidence is higher than that of men.
Why do rheumatoid arthritis diseases prefer women? Which types of women are more likely to suffer from rheumatoid arthritis? Let’s listen to the detailed answers of Director Wei Wei Song, the Department of Rheumatology and Immunology, the Guangzhou General Hospital of the Guangzhou Military Region.
Director Wei Song said that work pressure, lonely women, and fashion women are prone to rheumatism
“Evil qi invading the body, insufficient righteousness” causes rheumatism
Director Wei Song said that rheumatoid diseases are a common disease and multiple onset, which is more harmful to patients’ health. From the perspective of western medicine theory, the incidence of rheumatism is mainly related to immune disorders. In terms of rheumatoid arthritis, when the weather changes, for example, when the heat is turned to heat or to the cold from the heat, the body stress excessively reacts will cause the disease.
Chinese medicine calls the “wind, cold, summer, summer, wet, dry, and fire” in nature. These climate will not affect people under normal circumstances, but if the human body is in a state of low immunity, or for a long time In a special environment, then these 6 prostitution can easily invade the human body and cause rheumatism. “Traditional Chinese medicine calls rheumatism as a paralysis, ‘wind, cold, summer, dampness, dryness, fire’, which causes the main diseases,” wind, cold, and wet ‘. This climate is mainly manifested, so when the “evil qi invades the body, the righteousness is insufficient ‘, it will cause rheumatism.'”
Rheumatoid arthritis is one of the rheumatoid diseases, and most of the rheumatoid arthritis is now young and middle -aged. The onset of rheumatoid arthritis is mainly affected by the climate. “From the perspective of my consultation, patients from Guangzhou to rheumatism in winter will increase by 20%-30%. Women who breastfeed are more common. Women over 45 years of age have a ratio of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis as high as 65%. “Director Wei Song said.
Women’s rheumatism is high, which is related to keeping warm and poor constitution.
“Although rheumatoid arthritis is an elderly disease, in recent years, the people who have become younger have been younger, and the incidence of urban women has also increased compared with rural areas. The incidence of men and women is 2: 3.” Director Wei Song said , More and more young women suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. There are three main reasons: First, women’s own constitution and resistance are worse than men, and it is more likely to cause rheumatism. In the season, I like to wear short skirts and shorts. Sitting in the air conditioning room in the summer, the cold wind blows for a summer, the winter is cold, and it is better to carry the demeanor and the temperature of the limbs, especially the knee joints in the cold wind. Second, it may also have something to do with estrogen. High estrogen levels will also affect high incidence of rheumatoid arthritis. Third, because rheumatism is related to immunity, and women are more likely to suffer from rheumatism than men than men.
Stress, loneliness, and fashion women are crowds of rheumatism
Among female patients, teachers and accounting are mostly. The reason is that the work pressure and living pressure of the two occupations are much larger than other occupations. When some patients were young when they were young, they did not know that joint pain or swelling was the signal of the disease, and the cause was attributed to fatigue. Around menopause, when the entire endocrine system was fully disordered, the disease was manifested.
Lonely women are also prone to romantic diseases, because infection is an important cause of wind care diseases. Lonely women are often weak in immunity. Therefore, young single women, divorced women, widowed women, and women who live in marriage also belong to the high incidence. Essence
In addition, love fashion women are also one of the high -incidence people. They would rather have no temperature in winter to expose their joints to the cold wind. These improper living details will laid the root of the disease.
Director Wei Song reminded that patients with rheumatism must be found, diagnosed, and early treatment. Moreover, correct diagnosis, standardized treatment, and reasonable medication are the only way for patients with rheumatism to recover. In terms of treatment, they must be appropriate because of people, seeking diseases, and treating syndrome differentiation. This is the best shortcut for the recovery of patients with rheumatism.
