A Guide To Treating Arthritis Negative Sero



Arthritis negative sero is the term for two different conditions: sero-negative rheumatoid arthritis and sero-negative spondyloarthropathy.  In both cases, the sufferer experiences inflammation of the joints and unbearable pain.  Even though the rheumatoid factor is absent in both cases, symptoms are the same as rheumatoid arthritis.


The Rheumatoid Factor (RF)


Seronegative means that the blood test for finding the rheumatoid factor comes out negative.  The rheumatoid factor is the name of one of the abnormalities of the immune system that identifies whether a person has rheumatoid arthritis.

When the immune system functions normally, it produces antibodies to fight attacks on the human body. However, if the immune system functions abnormally, it produces antibodies against itself.  The rheumatoid factor is one such anomaly where one antibody is attacking another anti-body; in other words, the rheumatoid factor describes one of the ways the immune system turns back on itself.  

Even though the rheumatoid factor is absent in Seronegative Arthritis, the symptoms of arthritis are still present. 


What is Arthritis Negative Sero Rheumatoid Arthritis?


It is not uncommon that people with RA are sero negative, meaning that a blood test does not show the presence of the RF.  These people still experience the pain of arthritis, and their pain responds to the same treatments as sero-positive Rheumatoid Arthritis.


What is Arthritis negative sero spondyloathropathy?


Another type of Arthritis Negative Sero is Spondyloathropathy.  This is also a condition in which the Rheumatoid Factor is absent. The sero-negative spondyloathropathy condition includes psoriatic arthritis, reactive arthritis, uveitis (eye disease) and other conditions.  Some of the symptoms of arthritis sero negative spondyloathropathy are morning stiffness, skin or mouth ulcers, eye inflammation, tenderness of the bones, and inflammation of the joints in some parts of the body.


Those with a severe form of arthritis seronegative spondyloathropathy sometimes take a combination of disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs including sulphasalazine, methotrexate, and others. On the other hand, those with mild arthritis seronegative spondyloathropathy benefit from exercise and physiotherapy and supplements like Hyaluronic Acid (HA) that helps to maintain the mobility of the joints.


How Hyarulonis Acid helps


The chief component of Synovial fluid, Hyaluronic Acid helps lubricate the joints for mobility and ease of movement.  With age, the HA level decreases, and many people find relief with HA supplements that raise the levels of HA.  HA is available in serum, tablets and injections for the convenience of different individuals.
