Management of childhood arthritis

World Arthritis Day: 12 October

Arthritis can also affect children. A child complaining of occasional achy joints was dismissed as having “growing pains.” Now symptoms of joint pain, swelling, stiffness, illness may be early signals of a serious, inflammatory rheumatic disease.

Several rheumatic diseases affect children, who are too young to speak about what’s bothering them. It’s important to assume these symptoms are not temporary. Get a proper diagnosis from your pediatrician.

Common Signs of JA

Juvenile idiopathic arthritis is the most common type of juvenile arthritis. Juvenile arthritis is a disease in which there is swelling of the tissue that lines the inside of joints.
Children as young as two may be affected. In these diseases, a child’s immune system attacking her/his body instead, especially her joints.

Here are the common symptoms
Weight loss
Eye problems

There are five types of juvenile arthritis:
Systemic arthritis
Psoriatic arthritis
Enthesitis-related arthritis

Diagnosis can determine the cause of the symptoms and suggest treatments.

Although the exact cause is unknown of JIA it improves as a child gets older, meaning they can lead a normal life.

Throughout the world millions of people are affected by arthritis, their lives being changed by the sometimes-constant pain of inflamed joints

Join us for World Arthritis Day on October 12th to raise awareness about arthritis. Together, on World Arthritis Day, we can make a difference!

This year's theme for World Arthritis Day is 'It's in your hands, take action'.

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life-threatening genetic disease. A child with CF has a faulty gene which affects the movement of sodium chloride in and out of certain cells.

The result is
·         Respiratory symptoms
·         Meconium ileus
·         Failure to thrive
·         Salty tasting skin
·         Lung infections
·         Constipation
·         Greasy and bulky stools
Caucasians have the highest inherited risk for Cystic fibrosis and Asian, Americans have the lowest. Recent high-tech medical advances in drug therapy and genetics are helping children born with CF lead more comfortable lives.
Sweat tests are generally performed in a lab. A child must have a sodium chloride result of greater than 60 on two separate sweat tests to make the diagnosis of CF.
Several other tests of the routine care used to monitor a child's CF:
  • Chest X-rays
  • Blood tests to evaluate nutritional status
  • Bacterial studies
  • Pulmonary function tests (PFTs)
Kids with CF can take oral doses of pancreatic enzymes. They may occasionally need oral or inhaled antibiotics to treat lung infections and mucolytic medication to keep mucus fluid and flowing.
Now get insights into some of the recent advances in diagnosing and managing Cystic fibrosis presented by our humble and fabulous speaker🗣️  Dr. Abeer Mohi El-Din Saleh , Pediatric consultant 👩⚕️ from Egypt

Dengue is a viral infection spread by mosquitoes. It's widespread in many parts of the world
These mosquitoes bite most often early in the morning or in the early evening. You can get it again if you've had it before, as you'll only be immune to one variant of the virus.
Infected mainly through a bite from Aedes aegypti mosquito
This mosquito feeds and breeds in small man-made articles that contain water, rests inside buildings. 

Dengue is caused by any one of four types of dengue viruses. When a mosquito bites a person infected with a dengue virus, the virus enters the mosquito. When the infected mosquito bites another person, the virus now enters healthy person's bloodstream

A common symptom in more severe cases is loss of platelets. In most people the infection is mild without causing any lasting problems. But in rare cases it can be potentially life threatening.

The virus infects cells of the human immune system, leading to symptoms that include liver damage and loss of white blood cells.
This is because of the following:
Dengue suppresses bone marrow which is the platelet-producing area, leading to decreased platelet count. Blood cells affected by dengue virus damage platelets, leading to their drastic fall in numbers. Antibodies produced in dengue also lead to massive destruction of platelets.

There's no specific treatment or widely available vaccine for dengue. Treatment is rest, plenty of fluids and paracetamol for pain. Dengue usually resolves in one to two weeks. Especially in babies and young children, dengue may progress to dengue haemorrhagic fever.

Papaya- Papaya leaves are the best option to go for
Broccoli -Excellent source of Vitamin K which helps to regenerate blood platelets.
Pomegranate- rich in essential nutrients and minerals that provides the body with required energy.

Many health experts suggest papaya leaf juice as an effective remedy to treat dengue fever. The leaf extract increases platelet counts in the patients suffering from dengue.

Acetogenin is a compound found in Papaya leaves have strong anti-malarial properties, making them best to cure dengue fever and malaria and Dengue
Dengue, Zika, and Chikungunya are all carried by the pesky Aedes aegypti mosquito.
In 2016 a partially effective vaccine for dengue fever (Dengvaxia) became commercially available in 11 countries: Mexico, the Philippines, Indonesia, Brazil, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Paraguay, Guatemala, Peru, Thailand, and Singapore.
Sanofi's vaccine designed to coax the body's immune system into making antibodies against all the four forms of dengue.
§  Personal protection and the environmental management of mosquitoes
§  Apply mosquito repellent, ideally one containing DEET
§  Cover your arms and legs by wearing long-sleeves and long pants
§  Use mosquito nets while sleeping

Over and over, nature shows that it's a tough adversary. That's why it's important that we invest in laboratories, disease detectives, research, mosquito control, the public health system around the world to find, stop, track, prevent health threats.
