What is Rheumatoid Arthritis?

RA is the most common form of autoimmune arthritis, affecting more than 1.3 million Americans. Of these, about 75 percent are women. In fact, 1–3 percent of women may get rheumatoid arthritis in their lifetime. The disease most often begins between the fourth and sixth decades of life. However, RA can start at any age.

  • Hi, I am Ranjit kaur, and sitting next to me is my Husband Sardar Kuljeet Singh. We hail from Amritsar and I have been suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis from the last fifteen years. I have undergone several treatments and have taken a number of medicines ranging from Allopathic, homeopathic, and even Ayurvedic, but benefitted from none of them. In fact, my condition became worse than ever and I became dependant on steroids. Fortunately, A few months back a doctor based in Amritsar, Dr. Rajesh Gupta told us about Giostar savior hospital in Ahmedabad where stem cell therapy is administered and it has even proved to be helpful for treatment of patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. Therefore, we decided to come to Ahmedabad and go through stem cell treatment at Giostar hospital in Ahmedabad. We came here two months back, and I went through the first cycle of stem cell treatment here at Giostar Hospital. Miraculously, I felt the improvement in my condition, as I felt a lot of dryness in my eyes earlier and saliva almost stopped forming in my mouth, but after this treatment the dryness of my eyes is gone and I can feel saliva forming in my mouth. I even stopped taking painkillers and steroids. Earlier, I felt acute pain, but now the pain has also lessened a lot. Now, we are here for the second cycle, and hope it will bring in further benefits. I hope and pray to god that after the third cycle of stem cell treatment I get rid of rheumatoid arthritis altogether. We are thankful to Dr. Rajan Joshi, Dr. Vinayak Patel, Dr. Utkarsh, and other doctors and staff of team Giostar. All of them are very compassionate and cooperative. We thank them all.

RA is a chronic (long-term) disease that causes pain, stiffness, swelling and limited motion and function of many joints. While RA can affect any joint, the small joints in the hands and feet tend to be involved most often. Inflammation sometimes can affect organs as well, for instance, the eyes or lungs.

The stiffness seen in active RA is most often worst in the morning. It may last one to two hours (or even the whole day). Stiffness for a long time in the morning is a clue that you may have RA, since few other arthritic diseases behave this way.

For instance, osteoarthritis most often does not cause prolonged morning stiffness. Other signs and symptoms that can occur in RA include:

  • Loss of energy
  • Low fevers
  • Loss of appetite
  • Dry eyes and mouth from a related health problem, Sjogren’s syndrome
  • Firm lumps, called rheumatoid nodules, which grow beneath the skin in places such as the elbow and hands

How Stem Cells treatment can help

Stem cell treatment involves administration of concentrated cells in the targeted area, wherein they can colonize in the damaged area, adapt the properties of resident stem cells and initiate some of the lost functions that have been compromised by the disease or injury.

Generally, these cells are administered through any one of the following methods:

Intrathecal Administration -Through this mode, cells are infused in the cerebrospinal fluid through the subarachnoid spaces of the spinal canal.
Intravenous Administration- Through this mode, cells are infused through the veins along with the mannitol to expand blood volumes in the central nervous system, to ensure that the maximum number of cells are reaching the targeted area.

Once infused back in the body, these cells can be repopulated at the damaged areas of the spinal cord, through their strong paracrine effects and differentiate into lost neurons or other damaged supporting cells to improve motor as well as sensory functions of the spinal cord.
Thus with our standardized, broad based and holistic approach, it is now possible to obtain noticeable improvements with the symptoms as well as the body’s functional abilities.
