Patient discussion about GP

Q. My GP told me I suffer from osteo-arthritis. What does it mean? I am a 67 year old female that is in retirement. I went to my GP because I suffer from osteo-arthritis. What does it mean? I always thought that arthritis is a systemic disease and that it is called Rheumatoid arthritis. Are there really two different arthritis diseases or is it two names for the same situation?

A. There are several diffent types of arthritis and the type your doctor says you have can also be helped by taking glucosatrin or glucosamine.There is also a natural anti-inflammatory called OPC-3 that will REALLY help with the pain. Research it on the internet. Since it's all natural, it won't harm your liver like a lot of pain medicine can.

Q. Our GP said that I have a greater risk for joint disease because I am HLA-B27 + . what is he talking about? My mom and dad have a spondyloarthropathy. they went to our GP and he did us some genetic tests and said that I am HLA-B27 positive, and that i have a greater risk for several diseases. what kind of diseases is he talking about?

A. HLA-B27 is a part of our immune system. Some of us )like me) have this gene and some of us don't have it. The fact you have this gene says you might have some diseases.
Those diseases are mainly arthritis for its kinds and inflammatory bowel diseases (witch I have and its totally manageable.
if your parents have only spondyloarthropathy I guess you can expect you will have a spondyloarthropathy too.
Go to your GP and ask him to explain you more about this.
