Handling Of High Cholesterol And Uric Acid Levels?
Tonight. I want to ask. My mother right when examined at the clinic said the doctor said high blood, cholesterol and uric acid were all high. Already drunk the drug from the clinic but it was not effective. knee. Please the solution, do you have to refer to a specialist?
Good evening, thanks for the question
To be able to control cholesterol and uric acid levels that are high can indeed not be done in a short time. Long-term treatment is needed because the drug requires time to reach maximum levels in the blood to get its therapeutic effect.
But for the acute inflammatory condition that is currently happening, patients need additional treatment to treat the inflammation. Anti-inflammatory drugs can be used in acute conditions to reduce inflammation and relieve symptoms of pain, swelling, and joint movement disorders. In some cases it is also advisable to get physical and occupational therapy if there are significant barriers to daily activities.
Therefore, we recommend re-examining the patient's current condition so that a physical examination can be carried out directly by a general practitioner or orthopedic specialist. Investigations may be needed to assess the severity of the disease, such as blood tests or imaging.
While what can be done at home in an effort to reduce symptoms are cold compresses on the area that is painful and swollen, doing light stretches to the knee joint, and resting the joints while related.
That's all, hope you can help. Wassalam.
