Arthritis incidence expected to rise

June 5, 2007

The number of U.S. patients with arthritis is expected to rise from 46 million to 67 million in 2030, the Centers for Disease Control reports. Of those 67 million, the medical condition will limit activities for 25 million, according to CDC projections. Obesity could make arthritis even more common and new treatments might lower arthritis-related disability. The CDC says arthritis likely will rise nationwide by 2030 except in North Dakota, West Virginia and Washington, D.C., where the population is expected to decline.

The American Heart Association issued eight new recommendations to help reduce congenital heart defects in babies. The recommendations include actions women can take before becoming pregnant include:
- Take a multivitamin that contains folic acid.
- Get preconception and prenatal medical care.
- Get screened for diabetes. If you have diabetes, manage it carefully during pregnancy.
- If you have PKU (phenylketonuria, which results in developmental deficiency, seizures and tumors), talk to your doctor about proper nutrition during pregnancy.
- Review any medicines, including over-the-counter drugs, with your doctor.
- Avoid contact with people who have the flu or other feverish illnesses.

Avoid exposure to organic solvents, found in products including paints and lacquers.
