Tempat2 Rheumatic Disease
"About 50 percent of
complaints joint pain caused by
calcification. Significant
depletion of tissue calcification
of cartilage that serves as a
cushion joints, '
Worn bearings in the joints that
causes friction, causing bone
pain. Calcification is a process of
degeneration that began at the
age of 40 years. The speed of
the process of degeneration is
different in each person.
Joints someone could start
trouble at the age of 40. But

determined by several risk
factors, "including: the quality
of cartilage and overweight.
Good cartilage will be more
resistant to wear condition. Like
a car tire if the quality is good,
then the joints are not easily
wear out even if worn for long.
Types of most common
rheumatic world's population is
rheumatoid arthritis (AR),
namely rheumatoid arthritis,

Riadi, OR trigger is usually

disease or condition. "It is not
known what causes primary,
but secondary causes of
obesity could be due to people,
so the burden that must be
supported by the knee is too
large, or because of excessive
wear of the knee, such as a

Types of rheumatic disease

Rheumatism in the productive
age are usually caused by
inflammation. This
inflammation can be due to uric

Rheumatism because uric acid is
often found in men aged in their
30s and 40s.
This species, according to Dr.
Harry Isbagio, occurs because
the excess of purine
metabolism that accumulate in
the joints. Embankment for
which cause pain in joints.
Doctor Harry frequently meet
public misconceptions about
gout. Patients often come to
consult with a uric acid test
results. "They asked why
uratnya normal acid exposure
but a doctor diagnose arthritis.
They misunderstand about
rheumatism. Not all arthritis
caused by uric acid, "he
Autoimmune disorders such as
lupus, including types of
rheumatic disease caused by
inflammation. In this disorder
are not immune to function as
an exterminator of bacteria,
viruses or foreign substances
that enter the body. Immunity
would damage healthy tissue,
including tissue in joints.
Likewise with RA (Rheumatoid
Arthritis). The disease include
inflammation of joints that the
cause is still unknown.

in joints. This network serves to
produce joint lubricating fluid.
In RA patients, this tissue to
swell and show a lot of

Rheumatism Treatment
According Riadi, the drugs now
on the market no one can heal
rheumatic diseases .
Medications just to relieve pain
and prevent further joint
damage. " Treatment of
arthritis is usually long term,
"he said. If the arthritis that
attacks the patient had reached
the stage joint deformity
(transformation of the joints)
then the cost incurred for
treatment, including expensive,
there are even drugs that cost
tens of millions of dollars once
a syringe.
Drugs commonly given to a
doctor in patients of rheumatic
diseases such as type analgesic
(pain reliever), which can
suppress the prostaglandins,
causing inflammation. These
drugs have side effects, gastric
disorders. Therefore, the
presence of specific rheumatic

kidneys. Another class of drugs
is corticosteroids, to resolve
inflammation (inflammation)

without drugs, for example
with an ice pack. "Apply ice to
lower the threshold of pain and
reduced function of enzymes,"
said Riadi. Then, many kinds of
vegetables that can be
consumed by patients with
rheumatoid arthritis, such as
celery juice, cabbage or carrots
that could reduce symptoms of
arthritis . Several types of herbs
can also help fight arthritis pain,
such as ginger and turmeric,
celery seed, leaf aloe vera,
rosemary, aroma therapy, or oil

"Badminton, volleyball, tennis,
jogging, martial arts should not

will cause tremendous pain, "he
In addition to treating, we can
also prevent the arrival of this
disease, such as not exercising
excessively, keep your weight

needs of the body, especially a
lot of eating fish from the deep
sea. If you are not eating
enough fish, taking
supplements could be an
option, particularly those
containing omega 3. In the
