I'm 1 of 50 million Americans living with an immune system that mistakenly attacks/damages healthy tissue (rude). During #AutoimmuneAwarenessMonth we strive to promote better understanding of these complex chronic conditions. Follow me as I share my journey this month. Image
2) It takes an average of 4.5 years and 4 physicians for patients to recieve an autoimmune diagnosis:
-Many conditions mimic others
-Lab tests are not always definitive
-Symptoms flare and dissipate frequently
-Diseases often appear in clusters
3) This is me at 32, a month before I woke up 1 day + couldn't walk. Days later I couldn't bend my fingers. Bilateral pain/swelling + fam history of #rheumatoidarthritis prompted labs. Sky high CRP, ESR, rheumatoid factor sent me to a #rheumatologist.

#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👸💤

Sigue el ciclo temático #LaFiebreDelOro, sobre los colores del #oro y dorados en el arte, para el #TwitterCultural.

El #oro ha obsesionado a la humanidad y sus culturas, como en el #ArteAntiguoEgipto.

Y como ejemplo: la máscara de #Tutankamon.

Sigue⬇️ Image
La Máscara del faraón #Tutankamon, Dinastía XVIII (1334-1325 a.C.), fue realizada por artesanos y artistas desconocidos, y es una de las piezas más conocidas del #ArteAntiguoEgipto.
Realizada en oro, oro batido y piedras preciosas, se exhibe en el Museo de El #Cairo.

Sigue⬇️ Image
¿Por qué de oro? Porque es el metal inalterable y eterno por excelencia, y se pensaba que la carne de los dioses era de oro, sus huesos de plata y pelo de lapislázuli.
La máscara, de 3.000 años, se encuentra en buenas condiciones aunque ha perdido algunas incrustaciones

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..."

Do you know all of these nuances of #pleuraldisease? Why is an #empyema distinct from a complicated #parapneumoniceffusion? What is #contarinisyndrome #explosivepleuritis #chyliform #pseudochylous? Are all #chylothorax milky? #pccm #pulmcrit #pulmonary
#pleuraldisease is fascinating and nuanced. First step is #lightscriteria which give favor to finding #exudates which tend to be more urgent. You only need one criterion, which maximizes #sensitivity. Meaningless statement: "It's an exudate only by protein." One criterion=exudate
(Like on Tinder, the more criteria you require, the more you narrow your pool, compromising sensitivity for specificity.) Transudates I will skip over. Most common #exudate is #parapneumoniceffusion #PPE. If there is or is likely to be #pneumonia, it's PPE. Next task is to...

One of the most upvoted comments on my #ACR21 plenary was "Why are we still doing observational studies on risks of #steroidsinRA? Given unavoidable confounding, shouldn't we just focus on clinical trials?" I responded in-platform, but thought the topic called for a🧵also. 1/
First of all, clinical trials on this topic are very important, and, when well-designed, will almost always yield results more reliable than those of observational studies when powered to look at common, short-term steroid side effects. 2/
However, many steroid-associated AEs are low-prevalence & require long-term followup to detect. MACE, major fractures, sepsis, VTE, etc. It would be very difficult to power an RCT to reliably assess effect of steroid use (esp. low-dose) on these outcomes. 3/

Seguimos la quincena temática sobre el #ArteAntiguoEgipto para el #TwitterCultural.

El ciclo de la vida y la muerte es fundamental en la cultura del antiguo Egipto y lo representaron de diversas maneras en todas sus artes, y una de las bellas es #LaBarcaSolar.

#LaBarcaSolar es todo un símbolo para la mitología egipcia: significa el ciclo del día y la noche, la vida y la muerte, el trasiego del gran dios creador #Ra por los cielos a bordo de su barca #Mandjet.

¿Por qué la metáfora de la barca? Porque Egipto es el Nilo.

En ese viaje infinito de #Ra por la noche, navega por el inframundo en otra barca, #Mensenktet, en la que navega hacia el nuevo amanecer.

Durante la travesía del inframundo, Ra (el creador, el orden) lucha contra el caos: la eterna guerra entre la luz y la oscuridad.

I deeply relate to this. After almost dying of ❤️ failure from #Lyme & being told by 11 “top” docs that in spite of my tick bite, bullseye, & classic symptoms, I could not poss still have it after a short course of doxy. Well, I did. 1/
And after the 12th doc saved my life (thx @StevePhillipsMD), I wrote my story in @HuffPost. I didn’t think anyone would care. But they did. The editor called & asked me to keep writing about this scandal as so many ppl were reading my story. 2/…
So I kept writing and began hearing from people all over the world, including a nurse from Ghana, who used my story to guide them back to health. I even interviewed celebrities who had gone through it like Daryl Hall. 3/…

¿Qué aplicaciones de Realidad Aumentada #AR y Realidad Virtual #VR podemos usar para CREAR contenido en #educación?

Si te interesa CREAR y no solo interactuar con contenido ya creado, este es tu 🧵⬇️ #hilostic

En este hilo vamos a ver cómo la #AR y la #VR pueden ser herramientas para CREAR contenido con nuestros alumnos/as y hacerles protagonistas de su aprendizaje. Ideal como producto final de un #ABP (Aprendizaje Basado en Proyectos).
Yo tengo experiencias inolvidables de creación de contenido con mis chicos/as.

"Apadrina un monumento" fue un ejemplo de ello.


Diseñamos una web y una aplicación móvil con las investigaciones que realizamos de la Península de la Magdalena.
