Another day, another tragic story of organ damage from #herbals:

27/F with #psoriasis of her face, trunk and limbs for 10 yrs. Now this is a tough disease to get, especially for a young woman. Appearance affected, social stigma attached, no easy cure but can be controlled..
Initially consults dermatologist, counselled, started on topical agents, but visible change takes time. Not satisfied and seeking "cure" without "side effects" they approach local practitioner who prescribes herbal formulation to take daily - which she dutifully does for 10 yrs
During a routine evaluation for unrelated back pain, a serum creatinine done is 8.1 mg/dl- shockingly high! Further evaluation and a kidney biopsy reveals interstitial fibrosis in the renal cortex s/o Aristolochic acid nephropathy!
Here is the cheeky little culprit 👇

Patient and husband doubtful. Hears fatty liver disease can lead to #cirrhosis. Seeks advice from #Ayurvedic practitioner nearby #home since #Herbal #DRUGS = safe. Assures complete #cure through #Ayurveda. Prescribes multiple #medicines, advises almost all foods restriction.
3/n
Lets look at medicines. #tablet APFIL. Packet mentions ‘for liver #diseases’. Which liver disease? There is #alcohol related, #hepatitis B/C, #NAFLD, primary biliary #cholangitis and more causes. Nine #herbs extract combo - clinical #evidence on safety and benefit ❌

Was it actually insensitivity? Three among these are approved by @UPGovt for non #COVIDー19 cases. This is more because of the scare of events that follow discovery of a +ve patient having crossed path in a pvt setup. Pvt sector should be encouraged, not scared in this crisis Image
Confusion described here visible in reaction of administration to discovery of a #COVIDー19 case in pvt hospital. The center may be sealed, all staff may be quarantined in a remote school without even water and clean toilets. Or there may be just sanitization. Confusion prevails Image
Unfortunately, @MoHFW_INDIA guidelines spread more as warning, less as help. I wish @PMOIndia ensures mathematical flow chart about SOP for pvt sector. Everyone should know the risk from his action, and how to manage it. Till then innocent lives might continue to be lost.

T1: Thread on data analysis & representation emerging from cognitive bias associated with research studies involving serious malpractice in #altmed #naturopathy #ayurveda #AYUSH research, i.e. no placebo controlled, no blinding, incorrect statistics, no error bars on mean data.
T2: From the recent article published at @AltNews Science on dengue and papaya extract pill called Caripill altnews.in/is-caripill-th… we evaluated the two clinical trial studies in India given by pubmed
T3: The first study had serious misrepresentation of data : while there is no way to find out the raw data & conduct statistical analysis, I replotted the figure using Mean +_ standard error of mean given in the results section. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/27739…
