What is Autoimmune Disease? Dr. Ashish Badika

What is Autoimmune Disease? Dr. Ashish Badika, rheumatologyindore.com

A well-functioning immune system protects the body against disease and various infections. When the immune system fails, it starts destroying healthy cells, tissues, and organs without any purpose, or we can say mistakenly. These attacks, known as autoimmune diseases, have the ability to damage any region of the body, compromising bodily function and potentially posing a life-threatening hazard.

There are more than 100 autoimmune diseases. Some are well known to us, such as type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis, while others are rare and difficult to diagnose. With unusual autoimmune diseases, people may suffer years before getting noticed about the internal damage with no proper diagnosis due to lack of understanding. While most of these diseases have no cure or treatment, some diseases need close monitoring and may require lifelong treatment to ease symptoms.

Autoimmune diseases are affecting more people for reasons unknown. Likewise, the causes of these diseases remain a mystery.

Studies indicate that these diseases may be the result of interactions between genetic and environmental factors. Even lifestyle has increased the chances for these diseases. Some studies also indicate that gender, race, and ethnicity characteristics link for developing an autoimmune disease. Autoimmune diseases are more common when people are in contact with certain environmental exposures also.

One must be cautious of such diseases and must have a regular visit to their known physician & get the check-up done for such diseases.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Can Lead to Increased Risks of Heart Attacks - Dr. Ashish Badika

Rheumatoid Arthritis Can Lead to Increased Risks of Heart Attacks – Dr. Ashish Badika

Rheumatoid arthritis can increase the risk of heart disease as it is associated with inflammation that affects not only the joints but also the heart. If left untreated, it can cause active inflammation to spread throughout the body, including the cardiovascular system, which can increase the risk of heart attack or stroke.

Effects on the heart in people with rheumatoid arthritis, inflammation spreads to the blood vessels and leads to narrowing. Arteries supplying the heart with oxygen and nutrients can get blocked in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, even if they do not have significant CVD risk factors. This can lead to angina, heart attacks, sudden death, and heart failure.

People with rheumatoid arthritis have a higher risk of heart attack and are twice as likely to develop heart failure and peripheral vascular disease compared to people without rheumatoid arthritis. Patients with active rheumatoid arthritis also have a higher risk of heart attacks than patients with controlled diseases.

People must consult their doctor for rheumatoid arthritis as this disease is treatable but only if taken care of in its early stage. Ignorance may lead to unrepairable damages not only increased chances of a heart attack but also sudden death.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Early Aggressive Treatment Keeps Away From Long Term Complications

Rheumatoid Arthritis Early Aggressive Treatment Keeps Away From Long Term Complications

A generation ago, rheumatoid arthritis pain quite often prompted distorted joints and extreme inability. However, the danger of incapacity can be drastically diminished when drugs that modify the immune system are begun at the start of the illness. 

Rheumatoid joint inflammation happens when the immune system attacks joint linings (synovial layers). The joints feel warm, swollen, and painful. Muscle aches and weariness may likewise happen. The beginning can be sudden involving swelling in just a couple of joints. 

Early diagnosis of RA 

At the point when joint pain and swelling starts see a doctor. Relentless aggravation can prompt changes that harm bone, ligaments, and tendons. Medicine can slow or stop this damaging process. The intensity of early treatment is helpful in the reduction of this disease. The more extended the active illness endures, the less likely it will respond to the treatment very fast. 

Exercise is very important for the treatment plan. A physical therapist can plan an exercise program to strengthen muscles, increase exercise limits, and keeps you away from joint deformities.
