Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis is a self limiting condition. But, by the time it leaves, the patient is crippled due to deformities & contractures & is demoralised. Medicines help in controlling the pain & inflammation. Physiotherapy maintains join mobility, prevents contractures & deformities & helps in locomotion.
Keep your moral up.
God bless you.

Foods that can keep your Uric Acid levels at Normal.


High uric acid levels in the blood stream can lead to a common form of arthritis called gout. To prevent gout, it is essential to maintain good eating habits and have proper medication. To reduce the uric acid levels in blood, you may need to limit intake of alcohol, sugary foods and reduce purine rich foods like meat, poultry, seafood and pulses. Vegetables such as cauliflower, asparagus, spinach, peas and mushroom also contain a lot of purines. Digestion of purine leads to the formation of uric acid. If uric acid is not eliminated normally which is seen in gout sufferers, it can build up in the blood stream leading to joint inflammation and pain.

Water   Water flushes out toxins including excess uric acid from the body. Have at least 10- 12 glasses of water daily.

Cherries    Cherries have anti–inflammatory substances named anthocyanis that help reduce uric acid levels. It prevents the uric acid from crystallising and being deposited in the joints. Cherries also neutralise the acids and help prevent inflammation and pain. 200 gms per day is very effective in bringing down uric acid.

Apple    Malic acid in apple neutralises uric acid and thus provides relief to the sufferers. You should consume one apple daily after a meal.

Lime    The citric acid found in lime is a solvent of the uric acid .The juice of half a lime squeezed into a glass of water should be taken twice daily.

French bean Juice    Another effective home remedy for gout is french beans juice. The healthy juice can be consumed twice everyday for treating gout or high uric acid.

Celery seed    This is a popular home remedy to lower uric acid levels in the body. Have celery seeds extract to get best results.

Berries    Berries especially strawberries, and blueberries have anti-inflammatory properties so include them in your diet.

Apple Cider Vinegar   Drink apple cider vinegar. Add 3 teaspoons of vinegar to 8 ounces of water and have it 2-3 times every day to treat uric acid.

Pinto Beans    A diet rich in folic acid can help lower uric acid naturally. Folic acid rich foods like pinto beans, sunflower seeds and lentils should be included in your diet.

Why do you want to go for knee replacement surgery? knee replacement surgery is the last resort if all necessary actions fail. First of all the diagnosis of knee pain has to be made. At the age of 52 years the most common cause of knee pain is osteoarthritis which can be diagnosed by an x ray. If it is osteoarthritis then along with medications few life style modifications are extremely important. You must avoid sitting on the floor, squatting, stair climbing, prolonged standing or prolonged walking, and you must do exercises for quadriceps strengthening. During walking you shoud use functional knee brace with hinge. If there is swelling rub ice for 15 mins 4 times a day. You can also modify your shoe to reduce pain in knee. Shoe modification is based on knee deformity. Most of the cases need shoe with lateral wedge insole for genu varus and calcaneovarus deformities. If all these measure fail to resolve your pain (provided the case is osteoarthritis) you can go for injections like steroid or high molecular weight hyaluronic acid before going for knee replacement surgery as mentioned earlier knee replacement surgery is the last resort. I answered for osteoarthritis knee, but first of all the diagnosis has to be confirmed. X ray knee joint, routin blood test and few special tests will help to get the doagnosis. Thank you.

I think your mother is suffering from osteoarthritis which is a type of arthritis where bones become weak. Both in knee and also in spine. And your mother is having migraine pain also. Need to check her blood for uric acid, ASO-titre, thyroid and blood sugar level. By proper and long continued homoeopathic treatment this can be goes away. Bt you need to treat for long. Soo you can contact me through Lybrate in private conversation.

Lybrate-user ji I think you have some injury to your knee while playing. First of all stop playing kabbadi. Give rest to your knee. And take some analgesics. Hopefully you should be alright in a week or so.

Hello. Lybrate user lack of exsercize result in bulging of tummy. Your all reports are normal slight increase in cholesterol will not be a reason to develop pcos but it may become cause of increasing fats. So I can suggest you that if you don't have time for exercise just do bending down (padpachimotanasan) twice a day it require less time. It will help you lot.

Avoid sitting Cross legged. Avoid Squatting- Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports Taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area Contrast Fomentation (Hot and Cold).
