What is the term given to the loss of bone that often occurs with age?
Gouty arthritis is caused when uric acid crystals, a waste product of the breakdown of proteins are deposited in joints. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease, a disease that is the result of the body's immune system attacking other parts of the body. There is no such thing as arthroarthritis. Osteoarthritis is caused by the wear and tear of joints that is a normal result of the aging process.
