Congress addresses rise of arthritis in UAE

At the Emirates Rheumatology Conference, which will be held from 10-12 of October as part of the 3rd annual Rheumatology Exhibition and Congress, doctors will be stressing the importance of education and awareness and also paying special attention to the role lifestyle management plays in fighting the disease.

Increasing rates of obesity, diabetes and metabolic syndrome in the United Arab Emirates, illnesses of an inactive and overeating society, are having a negative impact on those who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis.  While the link between obesity and rheumatic disease may be commonly known, certain environmental conditions such as heat and humidity can also have an adverse effect on rheumatoid arthritis.

“This is an increasing problem in the UAE and people need to be more active and lose weight in order to manage the pain and control the symptoms,” said Dr Humeira Badsha, consultant rheumatologist at Al Biraa Arthritis and Bone Clinic (ABABC) and secretary of Emirates Society for Rheumatology.

 The Emirates Rheumatology Conference will cover the latest in developments and treatments for rheumatic diseases in the region, featuring international experts covering an array of conference topics including pain management, osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, joint replacement, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and other connective tissue diseases.

Trade visitors have unlimited access to the exhibition, which will be held at the Al Murooj Rotana Hotel, Dubai.
