Arthritis is a rheumatic disease that plagues most people beyond the age of fifty. Arthritis can be really difficult to live with, as the pain is so unbearable, it practically immobilizes the person. Literally speaking, arthritis is an inflammation of the joints that causes pain, stiffness, and swelling. It refers to a number of disorders such as osteoarthritis, gout, ankylosis spondylitis, systemic lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis. The problem is further compounded if the person is overweight, since excess body weight puts more stress on the weight bearing joints. When the cartilage cushion between the joints is destroyed, the joints begin to rub against each other causing stiffness, swelling, decreased mobility, and intense pain. Arthritis may be limited to only one joint or it may affect a number of joints like your hands, fingers, feet, arms, hips, and knees. The pain can be mild or severe depending from person to person eventually leading to joint deformations. Those suffering from rheumatoid arthritis may experience periods of remission.

Cholesterol has often been termed as the enemy, since high levels of cholesterol are often the culprit behind a heart attack or stroke. But the truth if the matter is, that our body needs cholesterol to function properly and carry out a number of important functions. Cholesterol is present naturally in the body in two types, namely LDL (low-density lipoproteins) and HDL (high-density lipoproteins). It is an essential fat which provides stability to every cell in the body. While both these types of cholesterol are required for the healthy functioning of the body, high levels of LDL also known as ‘bad cholesterol’ can lead to plaque build-up in the arteries. This can put one at risk of suffering from a heart attack or stroke. HDL: The well-behaved cholesterol HDL is also known as ‘good cholesterol’ or ‘well-behaved’ cholesterol. Compared to other cholesterol particles, HDL cholesterol particles are denser in nature and thus known as high-density lipoproteins.
