     Nearly 60% of people diagnosed are under age 65. Arthritis typically affects people over 40, but it can happen sooner, especially if you've had a joint injury.

    Being overweight may lead to arthritis of the knees because of the increased stress on the joints. Genes may also play a role: Middle-aged and older women with a family history of arthritis have a particularly high risk. So, even if you are young, you are at a risk of developing arthritis.
