Hello Andy,

I am eager to learn about the new approach using the patient's own stem sells. Is it the Sangamo gene therapy?

Thank you,

Maybe you should stick to the oral D supplements. They do work and you can find doses that are 50-60,000 IU.

I can't advise you on this. I know very little about RA and its treatment. You need to talk to the rheumatologist.

You probably do also need the iron. Your Hb and ferritin are both low. Iron may help you bump the Hb up a bit.

Hi, Andy & Others!
Since 4 months, I feel more pain in my whole body; and sometimes my two legs can't bear my body weight. I meet with my doctor. First, he referred me to a rheumatologist doctor to send an online referral letter. & prescribed Celebrex - 200 mg. twice a day. Already 4 months past, but that rheumatologist doctor's appointment yet not getting. The day before yesterday I went to Emergency Department. But there, Doctor only try to increase my pain relief amount: which is higher than before. I did not except that & argued with them. After that, I leave the hospital. The same day I received a call from a consultant & he referred me to bone & join center. The next day I meet there with an orthopedics doctor & he did some X-RAY and Blood test, @ Calcium, Phosphorus, Alkaline, Vit -D etc. Today again I meet with him & he showed me all result of the test. As per his experience, Whatever he did as an orthopedics, all related test result is normal; only X-Ray report showing that bone is week than normal. He advised me to meet a rheumatologist doctor.
Nowadays my supplements are - Exjade - 1000 mg. Calcium 300 mg. 3times. Vit - D 50000 IU once a week. & Celebrex - 200 mg. 2 times. Blood transfusions Regular. Hb - Normal, Iron Level - Normal.
Before I taken 2 Celebrex in a day. But now it is not enough to stop my pain. Now I need a good suggestion from you & others. How can I stop my Celebrex?
Please Advise me to find out the actual problem.

When my body was pumped with
Cyanacobalamin 500mcg + Niacinamide + Folic Acid

My uric acid levels rose sharply. I felt the Niacin (B3) was causing rise in uric acid levels.

Getting a B Complex supplement that will not contain the B3 is a very tough find.

Somehow I felt that B3 raises uric acid levels.

I am beta thal intermedia and I am diagnosed hypothyrodism from 2007 onwards. The trigger to thyroid gland happened when I was on heavy drugs for curing my TB in 2006.

My elder sister beta thal minor is also hypothyroid patient.
