🧪👨‍🔬A positive Rheumatoid factor is seen in ~70% of cases and anti-CCP in ~75% cases, so about 1/5th of the cases may be seronegative!!

So a good history and clinical examination is the king 👑

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

Refreshing that the Boston U report described in this article supports what many physicians tell me in the clinic 👉 Immunosuppressive drugs palliate inflammatory symptoms short-term...but can exacerbate many of these same symptoms over longer time…
2/2 The report found that #corticosteroid shots in the hips and knees may accelerate the progression of #osteoarthritis and potentially even hasten the need for #joint replacement surgeries in the long run
3/3 “While patients may report temporary pain relief from the #corticosteroid injections, injections may be detrimental in the long run...They may actually harm your knee or your #hip” - Dr. Ali Guermazi, Professor of radiology at Boston University School of Medicine

#FightingItOut Anyone with Osteoarthritis? Knees? I was advised BOTH knee joint replacement at 56 yrs seven months age. I limped everywhere. I decided to fight it out. Today, I walk 9-10 kms without limping. I cycle about 140-150kms a week. No medicines. Interested to know how?
#FightingItOut #FightingItOutOsteoarthritis
1. I simply wanted a doctor to tell me on my FIRST reporting for knee pain in 2014, at 54 yrs age, that 👉🏻if👈🏻 I strengthened muscles of legs ie thighs and calf & shin, they would reduce pressure on knee joint. NONE DID.
#FightingItOut #FightingItOutOsteoarthritis
2. I start my journey of pain & agony and how I recovered more than 80% & pushed knee joint replacement by at least a decade. A human body can stand only ONE knee joint replacement in life and the life of this replaced joint is 15 yrs.

Strength training and regular aerobic activity help prevent many chronic and degenerative diseases related to #aging.

Here are 5 #health benefits that strength training can provide to older adults...

1. Stronger Muscles

Stronger muscles protect the joints of the body. Muscle weakness can cause the hips, spine, and shoulder to be less stable and more prone to injury.

A stronger body can withstand the #stress of daily activities.

2. Chronic Pain Relief

Many #chronicpain issues are a result of muscle weakness and muscle imbalances.

Strength exercises can correct these imbalances to restore the function and integrity of the joints.
