Too much weight is undeniably an issue for patients who suffer from osteoarthritis and inflammatory arthritis, but unexplained weight loss in rheumatoid arthritis can be a harbinger of long-term poor outcomes. Study after study points to the detrimental effects of too much or too little weight in arthritis. In this slideshow, we highlight some studies that examine weight issues associated with various forms of arthritis. These studies, and more, will be presented during the American College of Rheumatology 2016 annual meeting Nov. 11-16 in Washington D.C.
