My mother is 55 years of age. For the past 5 years she has been suffering from some form of arthritis, knee synovitis in the left leg. She feels a burning sensation in the foot. It becomes severe when she is not taking calcium. She doesn't feel any pain but feels weakness, shaking and lack of agility in her left leg only. She has taken extensive treatment from experienced doctors in Delhi but she doesn't feel satisfied. She has decided to drop all allopathic treatment and switch to Ayurveda. She does not take a balanced diet and doesn't stick to a routine. Please advise what we should do as in continue with the allopathic treatment or shift course. Thank You.

Very difficult to satisfy patients who are immune to good counselling and who are not willing to take control of their health in own hands. You might take a rheumatologist opinion if you haven't already. The question is what is an exact diagnosis, if its osteoarthritis, none of the medications are great, only exercise and weight control is best. If its something else or another form of arthritis, there may be some decent treatment available in allopathy. Best wishes.

It all depends on type of arthritis. I am assuming you have osteoarthritis, that is wear and tear arthritis. In that case probably exercise, physiotherapy is best way to control things. Rest everything including allopathy, ayurvedic, homeoapathy etc all are gimmicks rather than any thing conclusive. Yes all will ahve some sort of pain relief benefits, but nothing will prevent progression. Exercise might keep you fit and prevent debilitation in the long run. If it's another type of arthritis, than its a different story altogether Best wishes

My mother is suffering from osteoarthritis in both knees. Doctor has prescribed some medicine but said that it's incurable. Surgery is the only solution. So can you suggest what could be the next step. My mother is 60 year old with 65 kg weight and 5 feet height. She is suffering from this condition from last 6 year. If. I go for surgery then what will be the total cost and whom should I chose to do surgery as there are so many doctors cloning to be a good knee surgeon. I have heard that operation are not successful in knees. Patients have to suffer a lot after operation so please guide me with all available options.

I am no surgeon and I have no vested interests in surgery. My job is to avoid surgery in most cases. But your appears to be a candidate for surgery. Surgery by a good surgeon is not cheap. We use surgery as alast resort when everything fails, but at 60 complications in good hands are very less, success rate is high (>99.5%). Even in 0.5 % they might not get complete relief, but still they are much better than before. Most doctors themselves 60 with bad knees will and do undergo knee operation. Better quality of life and much better mobility, these are best years of elderly life, I would advise not to live in pain with same when knee replacement makes a world of difference. Unfortunately very difficult to suggest a surgeon. You will ahve to dig around, take 2-3 opinions. Best surgeons are often expensive, but probably worth the money - expect on average ~ 2.5 lcas per knee. But in decent settings and not big coporates one can probably get it done under 1.75 lacs each knee. But again you will have to check on your own. Best wishes

On my left hand at the base of the thumb and towards the edge of my finger is aching constantly. On getting an x-ray of the thumb area my orthopedic surgeon reports that I am suffering from osteoarthritis and it is a degenerative process which can not be cured and I should depend upon pain killers through out my life. I am aged 75 years without any health ailments like B.p./diabetics and heart problems. I am strict vegetarian and a regular walker covering 10000 steps and walking 5 miles a day and also doing yoga and meditation early in the morning. My diet consists of green leaves, vegetables of all varieties fruits, nuts, milk, honey and wheat. Can you suggest me any remedy for my ailment. Thanks in advance.

Not sure if he has talked about carpometacarpal arthritis or osteoarthritis of thumb base joint? There are better options - Use of a splint like thumb spica spint (can see on amazon) - Injecting involved joint with steroid (safe and usually effective) - Hand therapists may be able to suggest wax baths and other exercise (occupational therapists - OT) OT specialists also helps to suggest good mesures on hand funtions to minimise pain USe of a gel like volini twice day might be hepful use of painkillers in short courses is not bad, effeective and decreases any inflammation Sometimes pain might appear to be due to osteoarthritis, but there might be other causes being missed Depending on various scenarios and diagnosis treatment plan can be formed Take a second opinion and if possible consult a rheumatologist best wishes

Can I have suggestion on foods I can eat and foods to avoid when dealing with rheumatoid arthritis. Thanks.
Eat healthily, take your medicines no other advice works or required. Don't believe in specific RA diets, they don't help. Junk food is bad for the body, as it is for RA. If you feel something is causing your RA to flare, avoid it. But most times wrong perpetuated myths give you psychological belief that certain foods cause arthritis, which has no conclusive evidence whatsoever. Best wishes

Knee replacement might only be an option. Depends on if any inflammation still presents in knees. Steroid injection in knees worth a try, cheap and can last for 3 months

Is Uric acid 8.2 very dangerous? My dad is taking lasilactone and adalactone! Are they the reason for high uric acid?

Is Uric acid 8.2 very dangerous? My dad is taking lasilactone and adalactone! Are they the reason for high uric acid?
Not really, high uric acid is itself is not a big problem. 'Lasi' part in lasilactone (furosemide) can increase uric acid a bit. I will only worry if he had gout. Slightly higher uric acid might also be due to poor diet and exercise, rather than drug alone. Sometimes other diseases like diabetes can also cause increase uric acid. Show a Rheumatologist if in doubt. Read about 'gout and matchstick analogy' that might explain a lot of things to you. Best wishes for your father.
