Hola, buenos amigos!
If you speak Spanish and have arthritis or know someone who does, ReumatoIDEAS is for you!
Some of your favorite “Wellness with a Side of Life, Please” blog posts are translated into Spanish and shared on this new blog, so that we can reach even more readers who live with arthritis or rheumatic illness.
Did you know that:
“The Center for Disease Control (CDC) just released findings from a recent study on the prevalence of arthritis in Hispanic populations living in the United States—the first study of its kind using nationally-representative samples of seven specific Hispanic and Latino sub-groups, including Puerto Ricans, Mexicans, Dominicans, and Cubans.
Published in the Feb. 18 issue of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, the study presents key findings about the specific nationalities. Of the estimated 3.1 million Hispanics/Latinos with arthritis,
At least one in five people in each sub-group report a significant arthritis-attributable effect (including severe joint pain and activity or work limitations).
Puerto Ricans reported the highest prevalence (22 percent), which is similar to the prevalence for non-Hispanic whites (23 percent) and blacks (22 percent)
Cubans/Cuban Americans report the lowest prevalence at 11.7%.
Mexicans report the highest work limitations.
Puerto Ricans report the most joint pain and highest activity limitations.”
We hope that you will get the support that you need from the Arthritis Foundation, and hopefully you will continue to learn more about arthritis not only with Wellness with a Side of Life, Please but also with ReumatoIDEAS.
Estar Muy Bien,
What’s YOUR weapon against arthritis?
