Managing Osteoarthritis in Primary Care

Osteoarthritis is the most typical reason behind musculoskeletal incapacity, affecting 5 million humans in Britain. by way of a long way nearly all of circumstances are controlled locally. a substantial percentage of sufferers self-medicate, whereas others are handled by means of a GP and the first healthiness care workforce. This e-book offers an outline of the , its factors and normal heritage.

Sample text

There is evidence that heterozygous individuals with reduced rates of galactose clearance may develop presenile cataracts (Skalka et a1 1980); probably their galactose consumption also RISK FACTORS IN CATARACTOGENESIS 35 affects the rate of opacification in such individuals. Both erythrocytes and lens express glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, and genetic variants which confer susceptibility to haemolysis under certain conditions may also confer a liability to cataract formation (Orzalesi et a1 1981).

Examples of data sheets are shown in our previous publications. ead of the household. The population was matched for age and sex (Clayton eit a1 1980, 1982, Bartholomew et a1 1980). , to be significantly different between the cataract and control populations are shown in Table 1. Overall differences between the populations are shown in Fig. 1. >- u z 2w 18 L1: 6 1 I in DISCRIMINANT SCORE FIG. 1. The two populations of patients and controls between the ages of 50 and 89 were compared by stepwise discriminant analysis using the SPSS procedure (Statlstical Package for the Social Sciences: see Nie et al 1975).

The x2 value shows slight mismatching, significant at the 5% level. While groups I, I1 and IIIM are matched, group IIIN has a very small excess of controls, and groups IV and V have a small excess of patients. The effect in the population comparisons is discussed in the text. These include calcium, cholesterol, total protein, albumin and fasting glucose levels.
