Preventing osteoarthritis thanks to knowledge of your DNA

Osteoarthritis is a progressive disease in which the amount of joint cartilage lost is greater than that produced. The quality of the cartilage also deteriorates and the lubricating membrane (synovium) in the joint becomes thinner. As a result, shocks can no longer be absorbed effectively and bones can grind against each other, which causes pain. Inflammation can occur as a secondary problem, resulting in a joint becoming hot, swollen and stiff.

Osteoarthritis and heredity

The risk of osteoarthritis is determined to some extent by hereditary factors. To date it has been scientifically proven that a number of genes play a role in this. On the basis of your DNA it is therefore possible to see clearly whether you have an increased or reduced risk of osteoarthritis.
