Rheumatoid Arthritis | How to Diagnose RA | Third Age
 
02:59
Rheumatoid Arthritis is often hard to diagnose, particularly in early stages when symptoms seem like normal aches and pains. There are many diseases for which RA can be mistaken, so how does your doctor accurately diagnose RA? Symptoms of RA include: swelling, redness, or warmth in 3 or more joints. Experiencing pain or stiffness within the first 30 minutes of waking up also is a consideration when diagnosing RA. With RA, joint pain appears to be symmetrical, affecting the same joint in both sides of the body. Talk to your doctor about where specifically you are experiencing pain, stiffness, or swelling, and be prepared for questions on other symptoms, so as to rule out other possible diseases. During a full physical examination, your physician will conduct a gentle squeeze test on your hands and feet to test unusual discomfort. They will also feel for rheumatoid nodules under the skin near affected joints, and may conduct further testing such as MRIs, X-rays, ultrasounds, and draw blood or synovial fluid for lab testing. RA can take up to a few weeks or months to diagnose. Physicians will identify whether you are experiencing benign or aggressive RA to discuss the most appropriate methods of treatment.

Blood Test Could Predict Rheumatoid Arthritis
 
02:12
https://www.arthritistreatmentcenter.com Is it possible to predict who will get rheumatoid arthritis? Maybe… Blood Test Could Predict Rheumatoid Arthritis Petra Maria Longewag writing in the Maine News reported new research suggests, a simple blood test may soon help doctors identify a debilitating form of arthritis, much before the emergence of any symptoms, helping stop the disease from progressing further. According to the study, elevated inflammatory proteins called cytokines levels in the blood warn of impending rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The new study reports elevated levels of certain markers of inflammation i. e. cytokines and related factors can be detected in the blood stream, long before the development of rheumatoid arthritis or symptoms of the disease emerge. Solbritt Rantapää-Dahlqvist, MD., one of the researchers in a news release said these findings offer an opportunity for predicting the risk of developing RA, and perhaps, even preventing disease progression. Comment: If this result is validated, it could prove to be very useful. http://youtu.be/HBnKSLY5j20

Immune System Hacks: How Inflammation is Measured- Thomas DeLauer

Immune System Hacks: How Inflammation is Measured- Thomas DeLauer: We deserve to know how inflammation affects us. This quick educational piece will teach you! Learn more at http://www.thomasdelauer.com Inflammation is the body’s response to injury and infections and is essential in healing. This is how the immune system responds and delivers white blood cells and other things essential for getting well. When we have chronic inflammation, however, this becomes a problem. Chronic inflammation can lead to other diseases and can also be a signal of conditions in the body. But how can you know if you have chronic inflammation in the body? It is not always as obvious as bloating, and even when it is, the cause and treatment may not be clear. When a part of your body is inflamed that inflamed tissue will release extra proteins into your blood. These extra proteins can be found in blood tests and are known as inflammation markers. 3 common tests for increased protein: ESR, CRP and PV- ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate): A blood sample is taken and treated with a chemical so that the red blood cells will fall away from the clear liquid plasma. The rate at which the red blood cells fall is measured. When certain proteins are present they will cause the red blood cells to stick together and fall more quickly. Thus a high ESR rate shows that there is inflammation somewhere in the body. CRP (C-reactive protein): CRP is a substance that is produced in the liver. More CRP is produced when there is inflammation in the body. Increased CRP is tied to the increase of one specific protein and is thus a bit more specific than an ESR, but still does not reveal what condition specifically is causing the inflammation. PV (plasma viscosity): Similar to ESR, but used specifically for rheumatoid arthritis Evaluation of these tests over time acts as a signal to a doctor, and provides additional information about inflammation. ESR and PV change more slowly than CRP. CRP is affected by fewer factors than PV and ESR, making it a better marker for certain types of inflammation. Raised ESR, CRP and PV are signs of many infections, including: -bacterial infections -some cancers -Crohn’s Disease -rheumatoid arthritis -muscular and connective tissue disorders -infections post-surgery These are non-specific tests and further tests are needed to narrow down the specific cause of the inflammation. Doctors will often recommend these tests twice or more spread out over weeks to months to see how the levels change over time. As CRP changes more quickly it is often used to see how well a treatment is going. Lower CRP signals an improvement. Quantitative Immunoglobulins Test: Another test that is often run to find inflammation markers, is one that measures the levels of the three main immunoglobulins (IgG, IgA, IgM). Both high and low levels are markers of different conditions and diseases. Immunoglobulins are antibodies that are produced during your body’s response and play a role against bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms. This test is run when chronic inflammation is suspected or continuous infections occur. This helps to diagnose and monitor conditions. Used together and with other tests depending on symptoms and results, it is possible to diagnose and measure progress to treatment for many diseases, such as inflammatory bowel disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Understanding Treatment: When an area in the body is inflamed, COX-1 and COX-2 enzymes produce more prostaglandins (PGs), which play a key role in the inflammatory response. When you notice redness, swelling and pain, this is due to the prostaglandin response. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs work to block the synthesis of PGs and thus the pain associated with inflammation. Future therapeutic measures for chronic inflammation may look at PG signaling. PGs may play a role in both the formation and resolution of inflammation. Lifestyle changes such as healthy eating and exercise are key in reducing chronic inflammation. References: 1.

http://www.rheumatoidarthritistreatment101.com/ The diagnosis of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is done when there is persistent arthritis in one or more joints for more than six weeks. Usually, variety of tests are required to confirm the diagnosis. Type of arthritis is determined based on the child's symptoms over six months of illness. The treatment is based on the type of arthritis, and it's seriousness. Initially, medicine is given to reduce swelling and pain, along with physical therapy. Shots of steroid medicine may also be given in extreme cases. If these treatments do not help, surgery to correct the joint problems is the only solution.

8 Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis | Signs  of Rheumatoid Arthritis
 
05:26
8 Signs and Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis Rheumatoid arthritis is a serious autoimmune disease that attacks the joints and other body parts. But RA can be tough to diagnose. Symptoms can mimic other illnesses, or they may flare, then fade, only to flare again somewhere else. Lab tests aren’t perfect—you can test negative for RA factors and still have it. And X-rays don’t show signs until later on. Here are some tricky rheumatoid arthritis symptoms and hints that they’re due to RA and not some other condition. Hard to heal injuries It’s possible to think you have an injury—such as a sprained ankle that doesn’t seem to heal—when the symptoms are actually due to RA. This is more common in younger people, says Lisa A. Mandl, MD, MPH, assistant attending rheumatologist at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. Numbness or tingling in the hands What happens is that the swelling in the arm compresses the nerves going into the hands. The sensation is often worse at night. If you go to a doctor with these symptoms and don’t have (or tell him or her about) other RA symptoms, you may be diagnosed only with carpal tunnel syndrome. Foot trouble One area in which people often have RA-related pain or inflammation is the forefoot. Women often stop wearing heels and head to a podiatrist due to the pain. Some people with RA may also develop pain in the heel because of plantar fasciitis, a common foot disorder caused by swelling of the tissue at the bottom of the foot, near the heel. Eye problems People with RA are also at risk for Sjogrens syndrome, an autoimmune disorder that can cause dryness of the eyes, mouth, nose, throat, or skin due to inflammation that stops glands from releasing moisture, This can happen even in the early stages of RA, but it’s unlikely to be the only symptom. Most people with dry eyes head to an eye doctor to find out the cause, but Dr. Mandl recommends telling your doctor—even an eye doctor or other specialist—about additional symptoms you’re having in any part of the body. Pairs of achy joints One of the most predominant symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis is aching in the joints. People often think their pain is due to overexertion or osteoarthritis, the type of arthritis common in old age. This achiness can also be misdiagnosed as fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome (fatigue is another symptom of RA). RA joint pain is not fleeting; it usually lasts longer than a week. It can also be symmetrical, meaning both hands, feet, knees, or ankles will be affected at the same time. Morning stiffness Another characteristic of rheumatoid arthritis is stiffness in the joints in the morning. Again, this is also a common problem in osteoarthritis, which can cause pain after long periods of inactivity, like sleeping. The difference between the two is that osteoarthritis pain usually subsides in about a half hour. Stiffness from rheumatoid arthritis will last much longer, possibly for a good chunk of the day. The right kind of exercise can help alleviate stiffness for people with RA and osteoarthritis pain. Locked joints People with RA can sometimes experience locked joints, particularly in the knees and elbows. This happens because there’s so much swelling of the tendons around the joint, the joint cannot bend. It can lead to cysts behind the knee that can puff out and inhibit motion. The symptom can be mistaken for a meniscus tear, a knee joint injury that's common in sports, and which can also lead to cysts. Nodules These are firm lumps that grow under the skin near the affected joints. They often appear at the back of the elbows, and sometimes people get them in the eyes. They're more common in people who have advanced rheumatoid arthritis, but occasionally show up earlier, The nodules can at times mimic gout, another form of arthritis.

11 Effects of Rheumatoid Arthritis on the Body
 
10:27
11 Effects of Rheumatoid Arthritis on the Body Overview Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is more than just joint pain. This chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease causes your body to mistakenly attack healthy joints and leads to widespread inflammation. While RA is notorious for causing joint pain and inflammation, it can also cause other symptoms throughout the body. Read on to learn more about the possible symptoms of RA and its overall effects on the body. The effects of rheumatoid arthritis on the body RA is a progressive autoimmune disease that mainly affects your joints. According to Arthritis Foundation, about 1.5 million U.S. people live with RA. Anyone can get RA, but it generally begins between the ages of 30 and 60. It also tends to affect women nearly three times more than men. The exact cause of RA is unknown, but genetics, infections, or hormonal changes may play a role. Disease-modifying medications can help slow the progression of RA. Other medications, combined with lifestyle changes, can help manage the effects and in turn improve your overall quality of life. Skeletal system One of the first signs of RA is inflammation of the smaller joints in the hands and feet. Most of the time, symptoms affect both sides of the body at once. Common symptoms include pain, swelling, tenderness, and stiffness, which is more pronounced in the morning. Morning RA pain can last for 30 minutes or longer. RA can also cause tingling or burning sensations in the joints. Symptoms can come and go in “flares” followed by a period of remission, but the initial stages can last at least six weeks. Symptoms of RA can occur in any of the body’s joints, including your: fingers wrists shoulders elbows hips knees ankles toes RA can also result in: bunions claw toes hammer toes As the disease progresses, cartilage and bone are damaged and destroyed. Eventually, supporting tendons, ligaments, and muscles weaken. This can lead to a limited range of motion or difficulty moving the joints properly. In the long term, joints can become deformed. Having RA also puts you at greater risk of developing osteoporosis, a weakening of the bones. This in turn can increase your risk of bone fractures and breaks. Chronic inflammation of the wrists can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome, making it difficult to use your wrists and hands. Weakened or damaged bones in the neck or cervical spine can cause chronic pain. Your doctor may order X-rays to investigate the extent of joint and bone damage from RA. Circulatory system RA can affect the system responsible for making and transporting blood throughout your body, too. A simple blood test can reveal the presence of an antibody called the rheumatoid factor. Not all people with the antibody develop RA, but it’s one of many clues doctors use to diagnose this condition. RA increases your risk for anemia. This is due to a decreased production of red blood cells. You may also have a higher risk of blocked or hardened arteries. In rare cases, RA can lead to inflammation of the sac around the heart (pericarditis), the heart muscle (myocarditis), or even congestive heart failure. A rare but serious complication of RA is inflammation of the blood vessels (rheumatoid vasculitis, or RA rash). Inflamed blood vessels weaken and expand or narrow, interfering with blood flow. This can lead to problems with the nerves, skin, heart, and brain. Skin, eyes, and mouth Rheumatoid nodules are hard lumps caused by inflammation that appear under the skin, usually near joints. They can be bothersome, but usually aren’t painful. As many as 4 million U.S. people have an inflammatory disease called Sjogren’s syndrome, according to the Sjogren’s Syndrome Foundation. About half of these individuals also have RA or a similar autoimmune disease. When the two diseases are present, it’s called secondary Sjogren’s syndrome. Sjogren’s causes severe dryness — especially of the eyes. You may notice a burning or gritty feeling. Prolonged dry eyes increases the risk of eye infection or corneal damage. Though it’s rare, RA can also cause inflammation of the eye. Sjogren’s can also cause a dry mouth and throat, making it difficult to eat or swallow, especially dry foods. Chronic dry mouth can lead to: tooth decay gingivitis oral infections You may also experience swollen glands in the face and neck, dry nasal passages, and dry skin. Women may also feel vaginal dryness. Respiratory system RA increases the risk of inflammation or scarring of the linings of the lungs (pleurisy) and damage to lung tissue (rheumatoid lung). Other problems include: blocked airways (bronchiolitis obliterans) fluid in the chest (pleural effusion) high blood pressure in the lungs (pulmonary hypertension) scarring of the lungs (pulmonary fibrosis) rheumatoid nodules on the lungs

New Blood Test Gets Jump On Arthritis
 
00:59
Instead of being surprised by that first ache or pain, doctors may soon be able to use a blood test to diagnose patients with early-stage arthritis years--before irreversible symptoms take hold. The test was developed by researchers from the University of Warwick, in England. According to UPI, scientists involved with the project say their new procedure will be able to provide an early diagnosis for osteoarthritis. They'll also be able to distinguish early-stage rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory joint diseases. The procedure works by identifying the chemical signatures within the plasma in a patient's blood, and detecting the damage done as a result of oxidation, glycation and nitration. Researchers are confident the new approach will significantly improve the prognosis for a variety of joint inflammatory ailments. In a press release, lead researcher Naila Rabbani called it "a big step forward." http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2016/10/27/Scientists-develop-blood-test-for-early-osteoarthritis-detection/7911477596763/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

New Test May Predict Early Arthritis
 
02:47
A new test to detect early arthritis… next Study Shows Potential for Early Diagnosis of Arthritis Pat Anson writing for Pain News Network reported a new study by British researchers has demonstrated the potential for an experimental blood test that can diagnose arthritis in its earliest stages. Such a test could lead to earlier treatment of osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA), years before joint damage and physical symptoms begin. Researchers at Warwick Medical School recruited 225 people with early or advanced OA, RA or another inflammatory joint disease, along with a control group of healthy volunteers with no joint problems. Their blood and fluid from affected knee joints were then analyzed with mass spectrometry. The test found patterns in blood plasma amino acids that were damaged by oxygen, nitrogen and sugar molecules. The damage was highest in the blood samples of patients with OA or RA, and markedly lower in the blood of healthy volunteers -- giving researchers identifiable biomarkers that could be used for an early diagnosis. “This is a big step forward for early-stage detection of arthritis that will help start treatment early and prevent painful and debilitating disease,” said Naila Rabbani, PhD, of Warwick Medical School. “Damage to proteins in the arthritic joint have been known for many years but this is the first time it has been exploited for early-stage diagnosis. “For the first time we measured small fragments from damaged proteins that leak from the joint into blood. The combination of changes in oxidized, nitrated and sugar-modified amino acids in blood enabled early stage detection and classification of arthritis – osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or other self-resolving inflammatory joint disease." Comment: Interesting stuff.

Each test result adds more information to the picture your doctor is forming of your illness. The most common types of tests you may be asked to get are blood and urine tests. Blood Tests Usually, your doctor will first request a complete blood count (CBC). Your blood is made up of red blood cells (RBCs), white blood cells (WBCs), platelets and serum. The complete blood count measures the levels of each. In cases of lupus, these blood tests may reveal low numbers. Antibody Blood Tests The body uses antibodies to attack and neutralize foreign substances, such as bacteria and viruses. The antibodies your body makes against its own normal cells and tissues play a large role in lupus. 97% of people with lupus will test positive for ANA. lupus test - #lupus test online. signs of lupus,what does a positive ana test mean,blood test for lupus and rheumatoid arthritis,lupus symptom checker,how is lupus treated,lupus test online, I have just been approved by a moderator to give you this website so you can have all your lupus test questions answered Signs of lupus,what does a positive ana test mean,blood test for lupus and rheumatoid arthritis,lupus symptom checker,how is lupus treated,lupus test online,.

################################################ SUBSCRIBE TO MY CHANNEL PLEASE.... https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWDyU5Z3SKdlZ0tL8WLsvRw?sub_confirmation=1 ############################################## how to Diagnose Lupus 1. Prepare for your appointment with the doctor. You can go to any general physician for a lupus diagnosis, but that doctor may refer you to a rheumatologist who may order more confirmatory tests and help manage symptoms with specific medication for lupus. Typically, though, the start of a professional medical diagnosis will be at a standard physician's office. 2. Prepare for an antinuclear antibody (ANA) test. ANA is an antibody that attacks proteins in the body, and these ANA are present in most people with an active form of lupus. This is often used as an initial screening test; however, not everyone with a positive ANA test has lupus. Further tests are needed to confirm the presence of lupus. 3. Get a complete blood count. This blood test measures the amount of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and hemoglobin in your blood. Certain abnormalities can be another possible sign of lupus. For example, this test can reveal anemia, which is a common symptom of lupus 4. Expect blood tests for inflammation. Your doctor may do several tests that confirm an inflammatory condition, though they will not definitively prove you have lupus. One such test measures your erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR). This test measures how fast it takes red blood cells to settle at the bottom of a test tube in one hour. A fast rate can indicate lupus. A fast rate can also be symptomatic of other inflammatory conditions, cancers, and infections, so it is not an absolute test, either 5. Inquire about a biopsy. If your doctor suspects that lupus has damaged your kidneys, they may do a kidney biopsy. The goal of this biopsy is to obtain a sample of kidney tissue. They will assess the condition of your kidneys based on how much damage has occurred, and what kind of damage it is. Doctors can use this biopsy to determine the best treatment for lupus. how to Diagnose Lupus. What is the test for lupus? What are the early symptoms of lupus? Is it hard to diagnose lupus?

About 30 Percent of patients with rheumatoid arthritis in clinical trials had negative rheumatoid tests. Positive blood test for arthritis also does not mean that there is arthritis. This is the case of patients with hepatitis C that often test positive for rheumatoid factor but do not actually have rheumatoid arthritis.

6 Disjointed Characteristics of Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis
 
04:43
6 Disjointed Characteristics of Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis 1. Osteoarthritis is More Common A post on the U.S. Library of Medicine explains that osteoarthritis is “the most common joint disorder in the United States”. How common? Osteoarthritis of the knee occurs in 10-percent of men and 13-percent of women aged 60-and older, according to the source. This number is only expected to increase as the population ages and obesity increases, it adds. Meanwhile, other sources note that rheumatoid arthritis affects about 1-percent of the U.S. population, but unlike osteoarthritis, people of any age can get it. While osteoarthritis is slightly more common in women, the prevalence of rheumatoid arthritis is up to 3-times more among women compared to men, according to WebMD. 2. The Cause is Different Osteoarthritis usually starts later in life because it’s the result of wear and tear on joints, according to WebMD. Meanwhile, rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease, meaning the body’s own defenses attack joints and cause problems. To diagnose osteoarthritis, a doctor will collect your medical history and inspect the location of the pain. Meanwhile, rheumatoid arthritis can be more difficult to diagnose in the early stages, as there is “no one blood test or physical finding to confirm the diagnosis,” notes the Mayo Clinic. However, while blood tests usually aren’t helpful to detect osteoarthritis, a patient with rheumatoid arthritis could have specific markers in the blood that point to inflammation in the body, it adds. 3. Osteoarthritis Creeps Up on You You may not even notice your joints wearing down from wear and tear until the pain really sets in – that’s why it can take years for osteoarthritis to set in, or at least trigger a diagnosis. Meanwhile, rheumatoid arthritis tends to move more quickly (from weeks to months) according to WebMD. However, as noted earlier, it can take some time to pinpoint the disease and it’s sometimes confused with illnesses that have similar early symptoms. 4. Osteoarthritis is More Localized Those with osteoarthritis are more likely to experience pain in a specific part of the body – for example, a chronically sore left knee. Meanwhile, those with rheumatoid arthritis can have symptoms throughout their entire body, as it’s a systemic disease, notes Healthline.com. That being said, rheumatoid arthritis will have symmetrical symptoms – for example, both hands will be sore. It can also present other symptoms outside of joint pain that include low-grade fevers, muscle aches and excessive fatigue, adds the source. 5. Rheumatoid Arthritis Can Carry More Health Risks Arthritis Research UK notes that a study of a “large group” of people with rheumatoid arthritis determined that 5-percent will “develop severe disease with extensive disability”. Aside from that, the source explains that those with this type of arthritis are at a slightly higher risk of stroke or heart attack. Those with rheumatoid arthritis can actually go long periods of time between “flare-ups,” although damage can still occur during these times, according to the source. 6. Treatment Approach is Different Because the underlying causes are different for both diseases, doctors should approach treatment for them differently. While some of the same drugs such as corticosteroid medications can help reduce pain for both types, drugs that suppress the immune system are generally prescribed for rheumatoid arthritis to prevent further damage. A recent article from MedicineNet explains the earlier the rheumatoid version is treated, the better the patient will fare over time. “Patients who were treated within six months of developing the first signs of the autoimmune disease did better in the long run and were less likely to suffer early death,” it explains.

Rheumatoid arthritis has a different clinical criteria to fulfilled. In the 7 ACR points about rheumatoid arthritis no one of this ANC or RNC is not involved in the clinical diagnosis. Rheumatoid arthritis is a clinical diagnosis depending on the 7 criteria which include morning stiffness, symmetrical arthritis, polyarthritis, small joint arthritis, rheumatoid factor, rheumatoid nodules and x-ray nodules. These are the 7 criteria on which rheumatoid arthritis has to be diagnosed and not on the ANC and RNC.
Anti Nuclear Antibody:  What is ANA positive test?/ Role in diagnosis of Lupus

#ANA#AntiNuclearAntibody Positive Antinuclear antibodies (ANA) is the marker for patients with systemic autoimmune disease. These antibodies can help establish a diagnosis in a patient with appropriate clinical features. Positive ANA indicates the greater chances of the presence of any of the following disorders • SLE • Scleroderma • Mixed connective tissue disease • Polymyositis/dermatomyositis • Rheumatoid arthritis • Rheumatoid vasculitis • Sjögren's syndrome • Drug-induced lupus • Discoid lupus However the test is more sensitive for the SLE , Drug induced lupus, Mixed connective tissue disorders. There is a minute possibility for the normal person to be having a positive ANA. Different types of ANA’s are • Anti dsDNA • Anti ssDNA • Anti Histone • Anti Nucleoprotein • Anti Sm • Anti Ro • Anti La Positive ANA titers indicates the further testing the specific type of ANA Indirect Fluorescent Antibody method is the gold standard method. Patterns observed in cellular fluorescence 1. Homogenous (diffuse)—SLE, mixed connective tissue disease, and drug-induced lupus 2.
