Antibiotics May Increase the Risk of Rheumatoid Arthritis by 60%

Previous research has suggested that antibiotics may increase the risk of developing inflammatory bowel disease and autoimmune diseases such as type 1 diabetes and autoimmune liver disease, so researchers decided to asses if antibiotic use is associated with the onset of rheumatoid arthritis.1 Microbiota or bacteria, live in various parts of the human body including the skin (skin microbiota), the mouth (oral microbiota) and the intestinal tract (gut microbiota). Our intestines contain tens of trillions of microorganisms including more than 1000 different types of bacteria. These microorganisms play and integral part in keeping our metabolism and immune system functioning at its peak. Antibiotic usage can lead to a significant reduction in the type of microbial in our gut and the overall total number of microbials in our gut, directly impacting our metabolism and immune system. Study Results To evaluate if antibiotic use was associated with the development of rheumatoid arthritis

Study Shows Standard Treatment for RA Ineffective for OA

Researchers at the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom, published the results of a meta-analysis, showing disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs are no better than placebo for the treatment of osteoarthritis. Note: Despite all advances in stem cells research and the application of these therapies in many countries all over the world, stem cells therapies are not legally approved yet in San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, New York, Jacksonville, Seattle, Houston, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Miami, Beverly Hills and other US cities. However, stem cell treatments are legal in Costa Rica.

Can Maintaining Your Ideal Weight Reduce Disability in Rheumatoid Arthritis?

New research suggests that both obesity and unintentional weight loss can mean greater disability for patients diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis.  Approximately 1.5 million people in the United States have rheumatoid arthritis (RA) but the severity of the disease varies. In some patients, RA can cause severe pain and permanent disability. Note: Despite all advances in stem cells research and the application of these therapies in many countries all over the world, stem cells therapies are not legally approved yet in San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, New York, Jacksonville, Seattle, Houston, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Miami, Beverly Hills and other US cities.

Can rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis or lupus increase the risk of developing dementia?

Rheumatic disease is a medical term used to describe many different diseases that affect the joints, muscles and tissues. Some diseases such as osteoarthritis are a result of wear and tear while other diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, are a result of a problem with the immune system. Stem cell therapy at the Stem Cells Transplant Institute may help reduce the symptoms of rheumatic diseases such as: Note: Despite all advances in stem cells research and the application of these therapies in many countries all over the world, stem cells therapies are not legally approved yet in San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, New York, Jacksonville, Seattle, Houston, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Miami, Beverly Hills and other US cities.

Patients Diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis may be at Increased Risk of Developing Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Stem cell therapy may help improve symptoms associated with RA and COPD Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is characterized by inflammation in the lungs but studies have also shown a link between systemic inflammation and COPD. Understanding this link led investigators to ask if patients with chronic inflammatory disease are at an increased risk of developing COPD. Note: Despite all advances in stem cells research and the application of these therapies in many countries all over the world, stem cells therapies are not legally approved yet in San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, New York, Jacksonville, Seattle, Houston, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Miami, Beverly Hills and other US cities.
