How To Deal With Buerger’s Disease?
My father suffers from deseas burger disease. It’s been a few years, the index toe has been amputated, now it’s even starting to get hit again on the big toe. The blood vessels are clogged and frozen. . What is the medicine so that it can be cured?
Buerger's disease (thromboangitis obliterans) is a condition that affects the blood vessels in the hands and feet. Blood vessels become inflamed, swollen and blocked. So that it can cause a lack of nutrients and oxygen and can cause tissue death. This condition, if left untreated, can cause damage that requires an amputation.
The cause of this disease is still not known with certainty. But smoking is one of the factors that influence this disease. However, experts also argue that autoimmune processes also affect this condition.
With the history that has been experienced by your father, it is better if his condition continues to be controlled by a doctor. Because therapy requires time and patience. The therapy will be adjusted to your father's final condition. Without checking directly, it's almost impossible to know your father's current condition. In addition to the history experienced, it is also necessary to evaluate the results of treatment. It is possible that the treatment carried out will be maintained, added or maybe replaced.
What can be done besides therapy from a doctor are:
Stop consuming tobacco in any form. Increase consumption of vegetables and fruit. Maintain cleanliness of injured body parts. Maintain personal hygiene
