Hello lybrate-user, it is ok if you cannot walk empty stomach in the morning. But you should then walk in the afternoon or evening time, atleast for 30 -45 minutes. Also restrict your carbohydrate intake like rotis, rice (once a week, in lunch only), breads, aloo, fried foods. For knee pain, you should increase your calcium intake - have milk, curd, paneer, soybean, pulses (dals), green leafy vegetables, oatmeals. Restrict sugar, sweets, fried foods. Have lots of salad, fruits, vegetables. Drink water - 10 -12 glasses daily. You can also join our telephonic weight loss programs where we will plan your daily diet according to your food habits & lifestyle.

What is Rheumatology? Who is a Rheumatologist? What is Autoimmune Disorder? What is Arthritis?

DM - Rheumatology, MD - General Medicine

What is Rheumatology? Who is a Rheumatologist? What is Autoimmune Disorder? What is Arthritis?

What is Rheumatology?

Rheumatology is a field of medicine, which deals with diseases having joint pain, arthritis and other related symptoms. It derives its origin from word ‘rheumatism’, which means anything related to joint or body pain.

Follow this link below for more information

What is Arthritis?

Arthritis means joint pain associated with inflammation (redness, warmth and swelling). All joint pains are not arthritis.

 

All joint pains are not arthritis.     

 

Most rheumatology diseases are a particular type of arthritis. However, depending on disease type, they can affect any organ of the body. Thus, they can be serious diseases too. They even affect children and young people.

Rheumatology diseases are autoimmune diseases

Rheumatic diseases are often autoimmune in nature. Autoimmune diseases are diseases,  where a part of one’s own immune system automatically starts  acting against itself. It is unknown why this ‘auto’ ‘immune’ activation causes problems only in a few. Note, it is not the low immunity, but over active immunity, which is the problem. Over active immunity loves to hit joints, this is why most rheumatic diseases have arthritis.

Who is a Rheumatologist?

Rheumatologist is a physician doctor, who is specially trained to investigate & treat various types of arthritis and rheumatic diseases with medicines. They are also commonly known as ‘joint pain or arthritis’ doctors. They are different from orthopaedic doctors, who are surgeons. However, both type of doctors need to work together, at times, to treat some patients.

It is necessary to start treatment early if you suffer from rheumatic illness. As immunity is  over active in these diseases, the medicines used to treat these diseases regulate and sometimes suppress the immune system. Early effective treatment helps prevent serious joint damage and can help save life in serious rheumatic disease.

Your father may be having osteoarthritis left knee. Kindly mention his height and weight. Osteoarthritis, or degenerative joint disease, is one of the oldest and most common types of arthritis. It is characterized by a breakdown of the joint's cartilage. Cartilage is the part of the joint that cushions the ends of bones. Cartilage breakdown causes bones to rub against each other, causing pain and loss of movement. Osteoarthritis can range from very mild to very severe, and most commonly affects middle-aged and older people. It affects hands and weight-bearing joints such as knees, hips, feet and the back. Ayurvedic treatment of Osteoarthritis not only prevents further deterioration in the joints but also rejuvenates damaged cartilages. Vata-alleviating treatments through specific herbs are also suggested for lubrication and strengthening of joints. Lifestyle changes- Avoid carbonated drinks, preserved and packaged foods, and dry or cold food items. Choose foods that are easy to digest and warming. Excessive use of joints and underuse are both problematic, so get some exercise each day, but do not overdo it. Try exercises that are easy on the joints such as walking, swimming and yoga. Keep your weight at an optimum level, neither too overweight nor too underweight. Do not withhold natural urges (such as burping, urinating, releasing gas, etc.) Home Remedies Use warm sesame oil to massage stiff and painful joints in the morning. Massage improves blood circulation and reduces inflammation and stiffness. Put one teaspoon of fenugreek in a cup of water and set aside overnight. Then next morning, mix well and drink. Boil 10-12 slices of ginger in 8 cups of water for 5 minutes and let it steep for another 10-15 minutes. Drink this tea at a warm temperature throughout the day. If you find this useful, you can always consult me online via Lybrate!

Hi, Ms. lybrate-user, I am not sure who made a diagnosis of RA in you. RA levels are very borderline in your case and they are not high enough to make a diagnosis of RA. But having said that many Ra patients have negative tests too. You have psoriasis. The arthritis associated with psoriasis is called psoriatic arthritis. It usually is diagnosed clinically, by history and patient examination and test alone is not sufficient. Also, understand that psoriasis of the skin is itself an autoimmune condition. It doesn't require any test, we can diagnose it by just looking at the skin. Rheumatology deals with autoimmune disorders. Unfortunately, most autoimmune disorders are complex, there is not a single blood test. Many immune blood results (like RA test) can be positive in normal patients. A diagnosis can only be made with proper, history and examination along with relevant blood results. I get many patients in my OPD with positive blood results of autoimmunity, but they don't have the disease. So I hope you understood why a specialist should see you before you do or interpret any results. Since rheumatology deals with autoimmune disorders mostly, Rheumatologist and clinical immunologists are one and same in India. We mostly use the word rheumatologists rather than immunologists in India. If you have trouble finding rheumatologist in your area do let me know Regards Best wishes.

I am an initial stage patient of rheumatoid arthritis and lupus (named as RHUPUS - RA+SLE. I am having medication for last 6 months now. The bone joint pains have reduced tremendously. SLE should be also in check. Though I would not know. My question is - how will I know that my disease is in check. Also for how long I have to take medication. This is important as the medication has severe side effects on my digestion system. So much so that I am on daily medication by A Gastro specialist. Also I have reduced the dosage from 200 mg to 100 mg of my RHUPUS medication as the doctor prescribed dosage had unbearable side effects on my digestive system. Is all this ok or I am doing something wrong. As ever thanks for all your help and guidance. Best regards.

Hello, as there are several meds involved in typically treating rhupus, it's impossible to answer your specific question without more details. But I can give you a basic understanding of what your disease is. Rhupus is basically SLE, but with the arthritic features of RA. The best way to see if the arthritis is controlled is via symptoms and intermittent X-rays or sonograms of the relevant joints. SLE though is quite different. Clinical features along with certain lab tests like esr, ds-dna titre, complement levels, etc help to assess disease control. An important caveat is that absence of symptoms is not equal to disease control, rather low degree smouldering disease is possible, hence do not modify medication without a rheumatologist's advice, to prevent long term complications. Remain active and exercise regularly while keeping a positive mind as the treatments available today are excellent. Tc.

Contrast Fomentation (Hot and Cold). Contrast bath---It is a form of treatment knee is applied warm water followed by the immediate application of the knee with ice water. This procedure is repeated several times, alternating hot and cold. Note that the treatment should always end in the ice water, as heat will induce the body's inflammatory response, while cold helps to decrease inflammation.

Rheumatoid Arthritis - How to Manage its Pain?

Pain Management Specialist, Mumbai
Rheumatoid Arthritis - How to Manage its Pain?

Arthritis is an autoimmune disorder wherein, the immune system of the body attacks healthy tissues within the various joints of the body. This causes inflammation of the joints, leading to multiple problems in them. One common issue with all the problems is pain. Thus, managing pain with rheumatoid arthritis is one of the most important facets of the treatment. More than the deformities or other problems, it is the pain that limits your capabilities. Some techniques for the management of pain are mentioned below.

  1. Pain medication: This is the obvious and first choice to avail if you need to reduce pain. There are many types and levels of pain medications which can range anywhere from being mild to very strong. However, this isn’t an option that should be considered lightly as you may have a tendency to develop a dependency which can border on addiction. Also, many of them harm the hepatic and renal system of the body if used beyond a certain period. Thus it is advisable to use this prudently.
  2. Weight management: In many cases, the pain is exacerbated by obesity. It has been noticed that obese or overweight people tend to suffer more from arthritis pain as the added weight tends to add pressure on the joints. Thus, one of the best ways to reduce a significant amount of pain would be to reduce weight through dieting and limited exercises that don’t strain the joints. However, it is easier said than done as a person in pain cannot usually exercise! So, the best strategy is to visit a pain specialist / interventional pain physician and get your pain controlled. Thereafter, start the exercises and reduce the weight effectively.
  3. Medication for inflammation: Inflammation of the joints is the primary symptom of this disorder. Inflammation is also what causes the pain within the joints. Thus, treating the inflammation with relevant medication has also been known to reduce pain. This is usually the first option to go to for relieving arthritis pain. The catch point here is also the side effect profile of these drugs.
  4. Changes in Diet: A few type of foods, especially certain fish found in colder waters are a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are very good at reducing inflammation within the joints. There are also certain food items which may be bad for your arthritis pain as they may aggravate inflammation and it is better to avoid such items altogether. Some examples of such items would be sugar, alcohol, white flour, processed meats, gluten rich foods among others.
  5. Massages: Whether it is a self-massage or from a therapist, it is a great way to encourage circulation which can help reduce inflammation and work as a pain reliever. A therapist would also know certain specific techniques to relieve arthritis pain. However, most of the times, improper massage shall do more harm than good.
  6. Interventional Pain Procedures: These may often be the most cost effective and usually the only option to reduce pain. These include joint injections, neurotomies, radio frequency therapy, laser therapy, ozone therapy, platelet rich plasma or anti-inflammatory injections.
  7. Other therapies: Some other therapies include heat and cold compress, acupuncture, wearing supportive wears and braces among others to encourage circulation and reduce pain. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation also helps to relieve pain by stimulating the affected nerves in the joints with the help of a low voltage electric current.
