Can Other Conditions, Such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Affect Osteoporosis?

There is a link between osteoporosis and other conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

If you have rheumatoid arthritis, you may treat it with medicines that can trigger bone loss. Your pain and stiffness may also keep you from exercising, according to the NIH.

Bone loss associated with rheumatoid arthritis is usually seen in areas near the affected joints, according to the NIH.

Talk to your doctor for more information about how rheumatoid arthritis and other conditions can affect osteoporosis.
