Is there any restriction on diet side for Pott's Disease of the Spine ?
Doc Sir, My mother aged 67 years has been diagnosed as POTTS Spine (Spine TB) destrcution of endpoint D8-9 as per MRI report and presently on ATT with Cip 750 mg BD wef 01 Apr 2011. My Que, is there any restriction on diet side? Pain at back still persists which is more severe at night time, Why so? She is not able to get up from the bed even. How long does it take to recover so that she is able to do her daily routines? Thanks Vinod, Bangalore.
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.com. First of all i would like to know how was the TB confirmed. Was a biopsy done. In some one who is 67 years old other caused are osteoporosis. If some one is getting nocturnal back pain we have to rule out metastasis also. Regarding the diet. as most medicines cause gastritis avoid spicy foods. Take a high protein diet. Add a vitamin called B long to the medicines to reduce the side effects of the ATT medicnes. Most important is to take a complete course of treatment for TB if confirmed. Bye

Hello Doctor My son,11 years old has been diagonised of Pott s disease after his D7 vertibrae had been conusmed by TB germs. There is compresion on his spine as his doctor found from MRI and related CT scan and biopsies.My son has been recovering in his weight and comfort. After 7 weeks bed rest he is normal now in movements inside the flat. He uses brace although. The. Surgeon wanted to do a surgery to reduce the compression. I saw the MRI,there is a compression.But visibly no sign is seen and since he is coming back to his normal posture, should he need the surgery? Please reply.

Taking a PPI for a couple years now on a daily basis due to non erosive gastritis. Recent dexa scan shows 5.4% decrease in the values within the lumbar spine and 9.7% decrease in the values within the total left hip. These are significant. Previous dexa scan was 2 years prior and normal. Could it be from taking PPI? Is there a way I can get off the PPI, re: an alkaline diet? Concerned about the bone loss... Mom had osteoporosis.
