What is the difference between Osteoporosis and osteoarthritis?

Osteoporosis and osteoarthritis are sometimes confused because their names sound the same. But these illnesses have different:

  • Symptoms
  • Diagnosis
  • Treatment

People with OA do not often have osteoporosis. Because some of the medicines used to treat RA cause bone loss, people with RA may get osteoporosis. Bone loss in RA may also occur as a direct result of the disease.
