Is any drug of R. arthritis like Medlor responsible for high blood sugar? What shall you suggest to cope both high sugar level as well as pain of arthritis.

Yes, I think medlor is a steroid and can cause increase blood sugar. Why not talk to your Rheumatologist. We do start steroids in RA at very low doses and gradually stop it as other drugs take over. Steroids at start are very cheap and effective way to control RA, hence we use it, But all good rheumatologist will try to stop them in long run, when other drugs take over and steroids are no longer needed. I hope this helps. You can also visit arthritis and Rheumatology (arthritisrheumindia dot com) india website for more information. Best wishes.

Which is the best Ayurvedic doctor to be consulted for rheumatoid arthritis in Pune (I live in Wanowrie, Pune)?

Which is the best Ayurvedic doctor to be consulted for rheumatoid arthritis in Pune (I live in Wanowrie, Pune)?
I will not recommend ayurveda in RA for many reasons Allopathy is best for many reasons. Ayurveda and homeopathy have no new drugs designed to treat RA. Everything is very old. RA can lead to joint destruction which is irreversible if not controlled well at start. This was the case 20-50 years back when all so called ayurveda and homeopathy drugs where available. Early treatment is the key in RA. There is ‘window of opportunity’ in early RA (not our invention, but a recognised term :). This window is open for 12-24 weeks after RA starts. There is decent evidence that if RA patients are properly treated during this window, they are less likely to have joint damage or might need much lesser treatment in the future. Many patients miss this window for a ‘unproven’ natural treatment. Most claims of successful natural / ayurveda/ homeopathy therapies on internet or real-life are fake or misguided. Many patients with mild disease at start will feel better with anything, but they will worsen without proper treatment in future. There is almost no government or medical organisation in the world, which endorses use of natural / ayurveda / homeopathy therapies exclusively for RA treatment. Yes, they might recommend healthy diet, exercise, herbs, acupuncture etc, but just as add-on to allopathic treatment. A research on any drug should be good quality and repeatedly show similar results. At any point an approved RA allopathy drug will have anything ranging from 50 to more than 100 papers. No natural / ayurveda / homeopathy therapy used in RA has consistently shown such results.

My bhabhi aged 34 has rheumatoid arthritis and nail are going to black slowly slowly. What is the reason?
Difficult to say. Depends on what drugs she is on. Is she taking hcq / hydroxychloroquine? It can sometimes cause black pigmentation. I don't think it should be anything serious. Do let us know accordingly.

Polyarthritis needs diagnosis as to what is causing it or what is exact type. Many arthritis can present as polyarthritis which basically just means arthritis in many joints. Please show a rheumatologist.

Rheumatic fever can have polyarthritis, but it usually occurs at very young age. Most arthritis first occurring at 23 years of age is not like to rheumatic fever. Aso can be positive in many patients just like that. Please visit rheumatologist or let us know if I can help.

It cannot help by medicines at least. Eat healthy, exercise well and take your RA medicines by rheumatologist. Basic ayurveda philosophy is to live healthy, for RA allopathy is only best option. Best wishes.
