Hi Majid,

Bookmark and use www.Dynamedical.com - it has a WEALTH of information
for GPs on >2000 human diseases. Registration is needed but is FREE.
I'm sure that it covers ALL the main (conventional) data on
arthritis. I had not the time to check it for that.

IMO (without checking Dynamedical.com) some of the most important
causes , in order of importance, are: 1. Environmental factors, esp
cold & damp; 2. Trauma, esp joint trauma (very important); bad
posture, incorrect lifting methods, incorrect sitting, bad seat (in
long-distance drivers), obesity; 3. Diet: Mineral deficiency (Ca, P,
Cu, Mn, Se), vitamin deficiency (Vit D), food allergy/intolerance;
excessively high-protein intakes, gout, LV-GB problems; 4. Genetic
predisposition; 5. Immunomediated diseases; 6. Age mainly old age,
declining KI function; 7. Endocrine, mainly hypothyroidism; 8.
Psychological factors: fear, depression and anxiety

I would put your other factors as less important:
Medications, hypoglycaemic agents, diuretics and antihypertensives without proper control of dosage; agents that weaken kidney function
Infections, mainly upper respiratory and urinary or intestinal.
Blood glucose level, mainly low blood glucose level.
Blood pressure, high or low blood pressure for that particular age group.
Dehydration increase in sweating, diarrhoea.

Best regards,
