Diet For Patients With Potts Disease
I suffered with potts disease 3years back. ..D12 -l1 disc where designated.... I can't lift any weight coz of pain what can I do about it?
Physical therapy: A 23 yo male with destruction of t12-l1 disc from tuberculosis by history. The primary treatment is adequate treatment of the tb. Many people have a disc destroyed for various reasons and with time and physical therapy to rebuild the muscular support in that area of the back, one can have less pain and better function. A certified pt can guide you in what and how much exercise will be best.
Refers to all the physical matter humans (like all living creatures) must take in on a recurring basis; only partially for energy. Like all life on planet humans are open systems which keep tearing down their structure & require intake of atoms/molecules from which to rebuild their structure. Intestinal lining cells replaced ~every 3 days. CaPO4 in bones ~every 6 years, ...Read more
My mother is sufferingfrom Potts diease and is onmedications. Andso she wants to know What home exercises can she do at home for Potts disease?
None now: Potts disease is caused by an infection of the bone with the tuberculosis bacteria. There are really no exercises that will help treat this. She should consult with her doctor to see if there is extensive damage to the spine. If it ok once the infection has been cured then the normal back exercise programs that you can find on the Internet will keep her muscles stronger and her spine more limber

Part 2-diagnosed RA patients, with active disease, to try elimination diets of nightshades, gluten, etc before starting medications (dmards)?
No: If that works we would do this. We don't because it doesn't work. The rheumatoid arthritis patient needs immediate referral to a rheumatologist to initiate rapid therapy to suppress and control their arthritis. Early dmard and biologics are more efficient when started as early as possible.

Mayby: There was one japanese study that suggested a plant based diet decreased the relapse rate of crohn's in remission. Http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pmc/articles/pmc2877178/pdf/wjg-16-2484.pdf unfortunately no pharma money is there to fund a f/u study. - for obvious reasons.

What specific nutrients are beneficial to liver diseases patients and why? Should they consume low/high protein diets?
Low protein because.: Prtein breakdown products include urea, which a sick or cirrhotic liver cannot reove. High levels of urea affect brain function adversely. As far as supplements for the liver, milk thistle may be of value, but I do not beleive any are of great value!
Is there a straight forward guide for heart disease patients to follow? I'm young, but there are so many misconceptions with diets.
Yes: Get dr caldwell esselstyn's book "preventing and reversing carfiovascular disease with a plant based diet.
Low-purine Diet: Low-purine diets-- i.e., diets low in beans, meat extracts, kidneys, liver, sweetbreads (tripe, menudo, etc), bacon, , turkey, sardines, smelts, herring, anchovies, pheasant, mutton leg, scallops, codfish, haddock, trout, veal, venison, salmon, etc. But, as long as your uric acid is well-controlled (with medicine and the like), you could still potentially consume these types of food in moderation.
Yes: However, associated disease and degree of kidney disease would refine the answer. Diabetes for instance requires diabetic diet to protect the kidneys. High blood pressure would require strict salt control to protect the kidneys. Different stages of kidney disease dictate different levels of restriction e.g. Protein, potassium, and dairy restriction in advanced stages of kidney disease.See 1 more doctor answer
