Osteoporosis, Mineral Metabolism and Arthritis

Ahmed M Elmesiry

Bone gives the potency and hardness of the skeleton in addition to play an important role in the storage of calcium and other mineral salts. It has a rich blood supply, contains connective tissue of cells in a fibrous organic matrix soaked in inorganic bone salts [1]. Bone is reported to be negatively feigned by several diseases as well as the therapy itself such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, ankylosing spondylitis and spondyloarthritides, and osteoarthritis [2]. The clinical importance of the bone is still not fully defined as most patients do not examined for bone densitometry in routine orthopedic work. This review focuses on the problem of osteoporosis and mineral metabolism in relation to different arthritis conditions. We must take in consideration that greater understanding of this problem will increase the health care level and rheumatic patients live.
