Abstract

Rheumatic diseases are among the most health problems that exert economic and social burden on the general population. Patients' information based on the inclusion criteria were collected from hospital records in separate questionnaires, that were assessed in terms of age at the time of referral, sex, ethnicity, initial clinical manifestations, involved joints, presence of comorbid disease and extra-articular involvement. The study population was 3049 patients. The mean age of patients was 52.24 ± 12.99 years. 81 of the patients were female. The prevalence of osteoporosis (OP) was 22.00, Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) was 21.51, and Osteoarthritis (OA) was 16.59. Joint pain (OR 4.21, 95 CI 3.02-4.81, p < 0.001), BMI>25 (OR 3.83, 95 CI 2.01-6.79, p < 0.001), and Lack of physical activity (OR 2.34, 95 CI 1.14-3.75, p = 0.018) were risk factors of osteoporosis. It is recommended to control the known risk factors associated with these diseases, such as lifestyle modifications, and regular and effective exercise, as well as to review the associated risk factors, especially in women. © 2021 Journal of Medicinal and Chemical Sciences.
