Arthritis diet: Three vegetables reported to make arthritis symptoms worse
RHEUMATOID arthritis is a long-term condition that causes pain, swelling and stiffness in the joints. Reports have linked certain vegetables to worsening symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis - what does the evidence say?
Jun Hashimoto Foot/ankle problems remain important issues in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients. Although forefoot deformity generally takes a major place in surgical treatment, concomitant mid-hindfoot deformity is also commonly seen. In this situation, it can be easy to overlook that mid-hindfoot deformity can also induce or exacerbate clinical problems behind the forefoot events. Thus, the relationship between mid-hindfoot deformity/destruction and physical activity/ADL was investigated. Radiographic findings of 101 lower limbs (59 patients) were retrospectively evaluated. Alignment parameters in the lower extremi...
THE NHS estimates that more than 400,000 people in the UK suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, a condition characterised by debilitating swelling and pain in the joints. One telltale sign in the eyes could signal onset of inflammation, according to an expert.
Intern Med. 2021 Sep 18. doi: 10.2169/internalmedicine.8031-21. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTIntestinal mucosal injury that develops as a complication of tocilizumab (TCZ) is usually associated with diverticulosis. We herein report a rare case of TCZ-induced intestinal mucosal injury in the absence of diverticulosis. A 74-year-old woman suffering from rheumatoid arthritis started taking TCZ. Six months later, she complained of hematochezia and abdominal pain. Colonoscopy revealed multiple ulcers spreading from the cecum to the transverse colon but no diverticulosis. These lesions were cured at three months after the disco...
Evid Based Complement Alternat Med. 2021 Sep 7;2021:5523870. doi: 10.1155/2021/5523870. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTAccording to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Aconiti Radix Cocta (AC) is clinically employed to expel wind, remove dampness, and relieve pain. We evaluated the antirheumatoid arthritis (RA) activities and underlying mechanisms of AC. The chemical constituents of AC were analyzed by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) using three reference compounds (benzoylaconitine, benzoylmesaconine, and benzoylhypacoitine). The anti-RA effects of AC were evaluated in adjuvant-induced arthritis (AIA) rats by hind...
CONCLUSION: Key elements of the patient perspective on remission in RA can be captured by NRS pain, fatigue, and independence. Although this study did not find conclusive evidence to improve the current definition of remission in RA, the information from these instruments adds value to the physician's assessment of remission and further bridges the gap between physician and patient.PMID:34538513 | DOI:10.1016/j.semarthrit.2021.07.005
ConclusionThe prevalence of positive RF in brucellosis patients with arthralgia was critical, nearly one-third of patients had RF positive. Elderly men brucellosis patients with arthralgia, wrist joint pain and elevated CRP were at high risk of positive RF. It is reminded that physicians should focus on differential diagnosis during clinical diagnosis and treatment, especially in brucellosis-endemic regions.
CONCLUSION: Therefore, the natural COX and LOX inhibitors may be used as alternative medicines for the management of pain and inflammation due to their less toxicity and resistivity.PMID:34533441 | DOI:10.2174/1386207325666210917111847
Conclusions: The majority of RA patients had favourable outcomes and low costs. However, a large group of patients was distinguished by chronic pain, disability, and fatigue not unambiguously linked to disease activity. The highest healthcare costs were linked to high disease activity or comorbidities.PMID:34511040 | DOI:10.1080/03009742.2021.1944306
