Treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis

A chronic case of arthritis, the rheumatoid arthritis, is an inflammatory disorder that initially affects the joints and spreads to other body systems. In addition to joints, the other parts affected by this disease are eyes, skin, lungs, blood vessels and heart.Rheumatoid arthritis is an auto immune disorder, that occurs when the immune system mistakes the body tissues to be a foreign body and attacks it. The tissues affected is usually the ones lining the membranes around the joints. The joints affected by this disease appear red and swollen with severe pain during movement. The inflammation that develops around the joint, thickens the membrane effectively destroying the bone and cartilage with time.

In other words, you are at a greater risk than a normal person. Age, smoking, obesity, environmental exposures to certain kind of metals like asbestos are some factors associated with the disease. Studies show that women are at greater risk of contracting the disease than men.
A case of rheumatoid arthritis can be diagnosed by conducting blood and imaging tests. Blood tests look for the rheumatoid factor, anti-CCP antibodies and an elevated rate of C-reactive protein. X-rays, ultra sounds and MRI scans help to track the progress and severity of the disease.

Alcohol Consumption can be Injurious to Your Joints..

Orthopedicians say they are seeing heavy drinkers with avascular necrosis (AVN), a disease that kills the bone tissue in the hip joint due to interruption in blood supply. This eventually damages the bone and the joint.
          The hip joint is a ball and socket joint. Too much of alcohol can affect blood supply. And without blood, the bone tissue die. The patient can develop symptoms such as pain in front of the thigh, knee, lateral part of the hip or groin. Most patients with AVN are men in their thirties or forties. They have all been drinking heavily for more than a decade. Reports says doctors diagnoses 10 regular drinkers with AVN a month. Almost all of them undergo hip replacement. 40% of AVN patients an orthopedician treated were heavy drinkers. Too much alcohol consumption is linked with AVN. If you are a smoker or into steroids for asthma or other treatment, your cumulative risk of getting disease is more. Those who come at stage I or II of the disease are treated with either medicines or a minor procedure like bone marrow injection.
     Studies have shown clear links between alcohol intake and AVN, but nobody knows how and why it leads to the disease.
