In a Debate:

#Ayurveda scriptures don’t hv any MODERN MEDICINE TERM like #Psoriasis, #autoimmune diseases & u claim that u treat it??

#Ayurveda scriptures also don’t hv any term like MAN - tomorrow you’ll say how m I treating a man?
It’s ur problem that you think
that SCIENCE can be discussed only in ENGLISH language, but SCIENCE was actually discussed in #Sanskrit centuries ago.

Ok, then where is Psoriasis & it’s treatment discussed in #Ayurveda.

Under the topic KUSHTHA(कुष्ठ)

So u do the LEPROSY treatment 4 #psoriasis 😂
When did I say this?

U said na KUSHTHA, KUSHTHA means LEPROSY, that’s it…


Then what is KUSHTHA as per Ayurveda ??

As per Ayurveda, KUSHTHA means:
“कुष्णाति वपुः इति कुष्ठम!”

I don’t understand it, explain

#Methotrexate is the nr1⃣drug of choice for Rheumatoid #Arthritis.

MTX's history is eventful, and deserves a 🧵

🔹It started with childhood leukeamia
🔹Sleeping Beauty in the 1960-70's
🔹Awakened by Hoffmeister
🔹FDA👍1988 and 🔝 in the 1990's

1/🧵 #RheumTwitter #MedTwitter
The start:
🔹1948, Dr Farber treated 5 children with #leukemia with Aminopterin, an anti-folate & precursor of #MTX, with outstanding results

🔹1951, first positive results of Aminopterin in #RA & #Psoriasis pts

Despite this, Aminopterin was aborted in RA

2/🧵 #RheumTwitter
MTX enters:
Due to difficulties in manufacturing, Aminopterin was modified and MTX was created.

🔹1962, positive results with MTX in both RA and #PSA

🔹Next 10 years: MTX was extensively studied in #psoriasis but halted in #RA

🔹In RA, MTX becomes the Sleeping Beauty👸💤

@AADmember here's what I'll tell my patients about #ZORYVE (#roflumilast) cream: It's used once a day for the treatment of #psoriasis in people 12 years or older. About 39% of patients achieve clear or almost clear skin with ZORYVE (roflumilast) cream after 8 weeks of use.
The most common side effects (occurring in 1-3% of people) are diarrhea, headache, difficulty sleeping, nausea, pain at site of application, and infection. Only apply ZORYVE (roflumilast) cream to your psoriasis, and wash your hands after application.
DO NOT USE ZORYVE (roflumilast) cream if you are pregnant or breast feeding or if you have moderate to severe liver disease. The use of ZORYVE (roflumilast) cream with drugs that inhibit CYP3A4

EL ÓRGANO MÁS GRANDE del cuerpo es… ¡la piel! 🖐🏼🦵🏻👩🏻

Y al estar en contacto directo con el ambiente es un sitio inmunológicamente muy activo

Así que hoy les hablaré un poco sobre sus aspectos básicos 😁

#Skin #Immunology #Derma

La función principal de la #piel es la de ser una barrera entre nuestro interior y el exterior 🛡

Cuando esta función no se lleva a cabo adecuadamente aparecen enfermedades como la #dermatitis atópica, #psoriasis, ictiosis, dermatitis por contacto, etc 😖

El funcionamiento adecuado d la piel implica una comunicación constante y d una precisión exquisita entre #células inmunes y no inmunes. Por mencionar algunas:

No inmunes: queratinocitos, fibroblastos, #adipocitos,etc

Inmunes: Células dendríticas (DCs), #macrófagos, etc

Ich möchte euch von einem jungen Patienten aus der #Dermapraxis erzählen, nennen wir ihn Tobi.
Tobi hat seit Jahren eine schwere Schuppenflechte. Große Teile seiner Haut sind gerötet, verdickt und mit einer Schuppenkruste belegt. Das alles juckt und schmerzt auch manchmal.
Er ist überwiegend zu Hause, geht kaum raus, hat keinen Job, trifft sich nicht mit anderen. Es ist ihm alles unangenehm. Er trägt nur lange Kleidung mit Kapuze und sogar Handschuhen. Er schaut auf den Boden.
Er hat vor Jahren mal eine Therapie mit Tabletten bekommen, die er nicht vertragen hat. Sein damaliger Arzt meinte, dann könne man nichts machen.
Danach hat er keinen Arzt mehr besucht und auch nicht woanders nach Hilfe gesucht.

The Gut #Microbiome is implicated in the pathogenesis of inflammatory arthritides & other health conditions

Gut dysbiosis is a broad term relating to an 'imbalance' of gut microbiota associated with an unhealthy outcome

I find this an interesting topic with several unknowns

🧵 Image
"Gut inflammation is strongly associated with #Spondyloarthritis (SpA), as exemplified by the high prevalence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and the even higher occurrence of subclinical gut inflammation in patients with #SpA."… Image
"Gut #Microbiome composition differs across regions and ethnicities, changes over time, and can be influenced by multiple factors, including, among others, diet, lifestyle, hormonal cycles, disease, comorbidity..."

Never underestimate the healing power of food, and discipline.
How taking responsibility of my own body and general health changed my life.
A thread. Image
I was diagnosed with #psoriasis around ten years ago. I went to so many specialist, and among the common phrases, there was "it's not reversible", "you have to learn how to live with it", and "your life won't be the same".
I never payed much attention to it back then, mostly because I had only some scalp redness. Time went by, and this was me a couple of years later. I was in such denial, that I would unconsciously avoid looking at myself in the mirror. ImageImageImage

A thread.
Investigating the extent of acceptance worldwide of the role of @Bioconlimited's #Itolizumab in the treatment of #Psoriasis - a disease that afflicts upto 2% of the population. I conducted a search on PubMed.
The search strategy was:
((Psoriasis[MeSH Major Topic]) AND (systematic review[Publication Type])) AND (itolizumab[Text Word])
Yielded 2 results. To be continued soon Image
I'll pick this threade up now.
One of those papers was a Cochrane review. Reliable, authoritative and influential. It always pays to check Cochrane Library for a review first. Image

OK #hospmed19, I had told myself I wasn't going to make another #tweetorial until next week to give myself a break, but I can't help but be motivated by all the amazing #tweeps at this meeting. Long story short, here's a #medthread on #PSORIASIS!

#MedEd #FOAMed PC:@dermnetnz
More and more, we are recognizing psoriasis to be a systemic disease. Aside from the psoriatic #arthritis we all know and love, there is more convincing evidence that psoriasis is linked with #cardiovascular disease and risk. As such, #multidisciplinary care is important!

There are many different variants of psoriasis. The most classic is plaque psoriasis, described commonly as "salmon colored plaques with micaceous scale."

Q: Ever notice how psoriasis doesn't really get impetiginized/superinfected but eczema does? Why do you think that is?
