What is rheumatoid arthritis

The health problems of the people in the world are increasing one after another. With the recent rise of non-communicable diseases, heart disease has also emerged as a complex problem.

It is also important to know about rheumatoid arthritis. It is also commonly known as Mango, Arthritis in the Terai, Ragan in the Karnali region and Khardchuro in Arghakhanchi.

What is rheumatoid arthritis?

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic heart disease that occurs in adults and in old age. Arthritis is a condition in which the joints of the body and other related organs (bones, muscles and the nerves that connect them together) become sore, swollen and the joints cannot function properly.

The disease, which affects about one percent of the total population, is estimated to affect around 250,000 people in Nepal.

How does it happen

Despite various researches and investigations, the exact cause of this disease has not been found. According to scientists, human genetics and various environmental factors play a major role in causing this disease.

In rheumatoid arthritis, there is swelling of the lining around the joint. Due to this, the crunchy bones around the joint are destroyed within a few months and the structure of the joint deteriorates.

This is how to recognize

Rheumatoid arthritis is one of the major causes of joint pain in Nepali society. In the early stages of the disease, the joints of the hands and knees (especially the fingers, wrists, elbows, elbows, knees and ankles) become sore, swollen and sore.

In the mornings and afternoons, cramps in the hands and knees make it difficult to hold a glass of tea, stitch, open the tap, open the door, and even pull the circus at night.

If the disease is severe, it can lead to low-grade fever, anemia, lumps in the hands and knees, red eyes and pain, and swelling of the heart, lungs and other parts of the body.

Infections of the organs such as pneumonia, skin and urinary tract are more likely to be complicated as the body’s immune system is weakened in this disease.

Long term effects

If not treated properly in time – as the arthritic arthritis progresses, the joints of the knee and ankle will be damaged, bent, deformed, and jammed.

In some cases, the disease may disappear for a long time and reappear. The pain may increase or decrease over a period of time.

Rheumatoid factor

Rheumatoid factor, commonly known as RA factor, is a type of protein found in the blood of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, which is caused by the body’s own immune system.

This protein, found in the blood of about two-thirds of patients with the disease, can sometimes be found in healthy people and in patients other than baths. Therefore, just because a rheumatoid factor is positive does not mean that you have a heart attack. It is not necessary to do this test again and again as it is only helpful in diagnosing the disease.

Treatment of rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis, like diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease, is a chronic disease that cannot be completely cured. The main purpose of bath treatment is to reduce the inflammation of the joint and prevent it from deteriorating and to prevent the decline in the efficiency and productivity of the patient.

Various medicines, physiotherapy and some other home remedies are also used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. In some cases, joint surgery may be required. Rheumatoid arthritis is mainly treated with disease modifying and anti-inflammatory drugs.

If only one joint is infected, the swelling can be reduced by injecting steroids directly into that joint. Depending on the severity and nature of the disease, various medicines that reduce inflammation and control the disease and prevent possible complications may need to be taken for a long time and possibly for a lifetime, depending on the severity and nature of the disease.

Biologic drugs (such as TNF, ALFA) may need to be used in the event that the medication does not work or if you have a severe heartburn. Although somewhat expensive, biologic drugs are more effective than oral medications. Regular health check-ups and blood tests are needed to see the improvement in treatment and to assess the harmful effects of the drug and the complications of the disease.

Many sore and other swollen joints need adequate rest. Regularly soaking in warm water can also reduce pain and implants. But to prevent joint jam, as soon as the pain and swelling of the joint subsides, you should start moving the joint and getting enough exercise.

Food and rheumatoid arthritis

Patients with rheumatoid arthritis need a healthy and balanced diet rich in calories, protein and vitamins. Such food is also essential to avoid the long-term effects of the disease on the body and the possible harmful effects of the drug.

In our society, various foods are believed to increase the disease, but no scientific basis has been found. Smoking can increase the risk of rheumatoid arthritis, reduce the effectiveness of the drug and even cause various harmful effects, so it should be avoided. Likewise, it is important to avoid alcohol as it can increase the harmful effects of drugs.

There is no scientific basis for the use of C, the use of electric oil and alcohol, or the use of various herbs.

Although various alternative therapies, such as naturopathy, acupuncture, and acupressure, provide temporary relief from joint pain, they do not help much in controlling the disease and preventing possible complications.
