Dear Madam, As i can understand that u are having Rheumatoid arthritis
and is now diagnosed to have osteopenia
. osteopenia is a very common association with this disease and long term steroid
treatment if you were taking any.I am also aware of the fact that you are not in favour of allopathic treatment,but believe me allopathy does have very good drugs at present which can prevent and treat osteoporosis
. If you are not doing well with your arthritis very good drugs like the newer Biological agents (eg etarnacept) can bring good results. Please take my suggestion and meet a rheumatologist
for your problems. You can avail rheumatology consultation from FORTIS HOSPITAL (previously -WOCHARDT hospital) on the mulund airoli link road ,near Sonapur junction.this hospital runs a small rheumatology clinic . Please take my advice ,i am sure you will benefit. hope you find my answer useful. Take Care.
