Reversal Of AVN grade in A SLE Patient: A case Study

Back to all stories

Mr. Rakesh, got the attack of SLE in years 2017 and he was suggested for the treatment of the same condition with steroids and certain other medicines. When he was thinking that he is getting rid of the problem with is immune system. All of a sudden he got the pain in his hip joint. He thought it is muscular. Because he was not aware that SLE and its medicines both have capacity to cause another problem with his hip joint, which is AVN.

He was struggling with an incurable condition (according to allopathy, not ayurveda) and now he had another condition where it can lead to complete disability to him. His hopes shattered at that movement and he was not sure what to do and where to go.

During his google-search he came to know about us (Sukhayu) and Vaidya Pardeep who treats AVN as well as SLE through Ayurveda and then he came to us for the treatment of his condition.

Treatment plan for AVN due to SLE

SLE is a condition which impacts the smaller blood arteries, causes inflammation with these. Secondly use of steroids lead to the formation of free fatty acids. These two things together leads to the condition of the avascular necrosis.

We cannot treat one condition, differently. The basic importance is to treat both SLE and AVN together. The common feature for these two conditions is involvement of the blood. In SLE too, necrosis of the muscular tissues is common, therefore the main conceptual thing was targeted in patients of SLE who are suffering with AVN.

So we followed our line of treatment for Avascular necrosis in SLE patients.

Treated Case of AVN caused by SLE

When you have one incurable condition with you and second complicated condition appears to you- this shatters the patient. The main problem in such cases is, patient loses hope. And hope is the main ingredient of any medicine and treatment.

The best thing what we do with SLE patients is to stop the progress of both the conditions immediately. Because this is important to stop the conventional treatment of the SLE where steroids are commonly used. With use of steroids, it is not possible to treat AVN.

In case of Rakesh Ji, we followed the same approach and it helped us to get proper results. Now he neither has any butterfly marks on his face of SLE nor has problem with the hip joints or any other bones.

You can also save your joints and all tissues if you are suffering with SLE and AVN both, with Sukhayu Ayurved, Jaipur under guidance of Vaidya Pardeep Sharma Ji.
