RHEUMATOLOGY

Rheumatology is a sub-speciality of internal medicine that treats diseases caused by faults of immune system. In simple language, our body has powerful immune system that fights against millions of bacteria and viruses but never attack against our own body. When immune system lost the capacity to differentiate between ‘self’ and ‘non-self’, autoimmune diseases (rheumatological disorders) develop. Arthritis (joint pain and/or swelling) is a common problem due to immune system dysregulation. Autoimmune diseases can involve any system of body like eyes, brain, lungs, kidney, gut, skin etc. Due to ground breaking research in Rheumatology in last few years, treatment of rheumatological disorders has changed drastically. Death rate, discomfort, pain and suffering due to diseases have decreased dramatically due to newer tests, medicines and awareness of Rheumatology.

Joint Pain and Joint Swelling

Muscle Pain, Muscle Weakness, Muscle Swelling (non-traumatic)

Skin thickening, Photosensitivity, Rash over face and cheeks

Repeated red spots over both legs

Dryness of eyes and mouth

Severe fatigue, Repeated mouth ulcers, Severe hair loss

Recurrent pregnancy loss or miscarriage

Repeated thrombosis in blood vessels

Blueish discoloration of fingers in winter or cold exposure (Raynaud's phenomenon)

Repeated ear or nose problem like nasal crusting, bleeding, repeated ear stuffiness, etc

A person who has done MBBS (5 to 6 years), MD in internal medicine (3 years) and DNB/DM in Rheumatology (3 years) is called a Rheumatologist. It is sad that there are only less than 30 seats of Rheumatology in all over India. Comparing to our population, these ratio is dangerously low. Always take treatment from degree holder and qualified Rheumatologist as many doctors call themselves Rheumatologist but do not hold any proper qualification. Even ayurvedic doctors, homeopathic doctors, physiotherapists and orthopedic surgeons sometimes call themselves Rheumatologists.

A Rheumatologist is trained in various arthritis and complex autoimmune multisystem disorders. If patient doesn’t go to a Rheumatologist, he or she will waste his/her few months in reaching to proper diagnosis. Second important thing is during this period, permanent damage to joints, eye, lungs and kidney can occur or sometimes patient can die as diagnosis and treatment both are wrong.

It is really sad that none of the government hospital of Gujarat operates Rheumatology department and this is true for most of the government hospitals of other states. Even Rheumatology OPD is run only in few govt. hospitals. On the other hand, most of the patients take treatment from ayurvedic doctors, homeopathic doctors and orthopedics as there is lack of Rheumatologists. Our centre holds first and only qualified degree holder rheumatologist in Vadodara.

RA - Rheumatoid Arthritis

It is common prototype inflammatory arthritis. Its cause is unknown. autoimmunity is an important factor in RA pathogensis. It is more common in females and average age is 40 to 60 years.

Obesity, smoking, environmental pollution and genes are few risk factors.

Early diagnosis, prompt treatment, healthy life style and regular treatment under qualified Rheumatologists can prevent joint damage/deformity and can lower suffering and early death.

death rates are as high as in diabetes mellitus (DM) and cardiovascular disease.

SPA - Spondyloarthritis

It is second common group of inflammatory arthritis.

Ankylosing spondylitis, reactive arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) related SPA, radiographic and non-radiographic axial SPA come under this group.

It affects young males. Chronic back pain that occurs more in morning, improves with exercise and does not improve with rest, is the 1st complaint for suspicion of SPA.

Patient may have red eyes, skin lesions, gut problems long with joint pain, back pain, heel pain and/or sole pain

It is strongly associated with HLA-B27, a gene that may run in family.

biological agents (anti-TNF) have changed the treatment algorithm.

Gout - prototype of crystal arthropathies

It is called king of diseases and disease of king.

It is the most common inflammatory arthritis world wide. It is associated with obesity pandemic and increased uric acid levels in blood (hyperuricemia).

Healthy life style modification is the cornerstone of treatment.

Intake of alcohol, tea, red meat, fish and other non-vegetarian food increase the risk for gout. More uptake of milk/milk products, green leafy vegetables, pulses, coffee, cherries actually lowers the risk of gout.

Gout is associated with heart diseases, kidney diseases, high blood pressure (HT), diabetes mellitus (DM) and many more diseases.

OA - Osteoarthritis

This is the most common arthritis world wide.

It is degenerative arthritis occurs in old aged people, more in females.

People usually have pain/stiffness in walking, climbing stairs and stiffness in joints after prolong sitting.

Knee joints are most frequently affected joints.

We still don't have good medical treatment options. Few medicines, exercise and few dos & don'ts can help to lower the pain and problems in walking.

TKR (total knee replacement) and other surgical procedures are the ultimate standard of care.

Fibromyalgia and soft tissue rheumatism (STR)

These are the condition where pain is the important symptom.

Patient usually complaints of pain in whole body. they usually have repeated pain in different parts of body or at same site repeatedly.

Increased pain sensitivity/alteration in pain processing is responsible for fibromyalgia.

Headache, poor sleep, irritable bowel syndrome, depression are few associated conditions/symptoms.

Another important and common cause for soft tissue pains & aches is Vitamin D deficiency.

Due to office culture, lack of sunlight and poor vitamin D intake in diet lead to Vit D deficiency a huge public health problem.

Patient may have repeated muscle spasm, neck pain, back pain, calf pain, fatigue, headache etc.

Proper diagnosis and treatment can avoid unnecessary investigations and medicines.

Osteoporosis

Low bone density and bone architecture is called osteoporosis.

Simply, decrease in bone quality and density make it vulnerable for fractures.

2 most common sites for fractures are vertebrae (spine) and hip joint.

Alcohol, DM, RA, few medicines, menopause, age, sex are few factors that can influence bone health.

DEXA (dual energy X ray absorptiometry) is the investigation necessary for osteoporosis diagnosis.

Newer drugs has changed the treatment scenario.

Our Portal

Arthritis clinic maintains clinical patient information including patient history in digital way which is called as Electronic Medical Record (EMR).

An EMR of patient can help specialist to track patient treatment/history in digital way which increase accurecy, efficiency and focus apporach to individual patient.
