Rheumatoid arthritis is a condition that can be very challenging, which makes life painful, with fatigue, stiffness and swollen joints the everyday experience. Day by day the symptoms get more severe and unbearable.
Those afflicted with RA may not notice the early joint damage. The irreversible damage even when it is not severe, starts within 2 years of diagnosis and quickly progresses over time. There is no cure as such for RA, but an early and aggressive approach to treating the condition can help prevent further damage to the joints, leading to decrease in the symptoms.
Biologicals can help
What happens in RA is that the immune system mistakenly attacks the joints. A course of aggressive treatment with biological helps to slow the damage to joints by activating the body’s defences.
If the RA responds to traditional disease modifying medications then biological will definitely help treatment. A course of medication that is a combination of customary allopathic medicines along with biological would be ideal.
Like any other medication, biological can have side-effects. Biological may actually increase the chance of infection since they interrupt with the immune system.
Biologicals are administered as a single shot or as an intravenous injection. After taking the injection it may be several weeks until you start seeing any results. Be patient and continue to take the remedy.
Can biological cure?
RA does not have any specific cure. Similarly biological treatment do not cure but only help lower the pain and make you feel much better. No matter your feeling about the progress of RA inspite of taking biological, you should not avoid taking it regularly.
