Doctors for Sarcoidosis in Unaki, Hubli-Dharwad
ratings and reviews)
Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease in which granulomas or clumps of inflamed cells are formed in various organs. Sarcoidosis results in the organ being inflamed. The trigger is the reaction of the immune system to presence of virus or bacteria. Symptoms are:
• Weight loss
• Joint pain
• Dry mouth
• Nose bleeds
• Abdominal swelling
Symptoms of Sarcoidosis vary with the organ that is affected by the disease.
HOW IS SARCOIDOSIS DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosis of Sarcoidosis is a little tricky, because the symptoms are similar to many other related diseases. The general physician performs an examination of lymph nodes, skin bumps or rashes, listen to heart or lungs and check for enlarged spleen. A chest X-ray, chest CT scan and a lung function test confirms diagnosis of Sarcoidosis.
HOW IS SARCOIDOSIS TREATED?
There is no cure for sarcoidosis, but the disease may get better on its own over time. Many people with sarcoidosis have mild symptoms and do not require any treatment. Treatment, when it is needed, is given to reduce symptoms and to maintain the proper working order of the affected organs.
Treatments generally fall into two categories -- maintenance of good health practices and drug treatment. Good health practices include:
• Getting regular check-ups with your healthcare provider
• Eating a well-balanced diet with a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables
• Drinking enough fluids every day
• Getting six to eight hours of sleep each night
• Exercising regularly and managing your weight
• Quitting smoking
