Suggest Treatment For Arthritis And Nephrogenic Diabetes Insipidus

Good morning, My husband has mild arthritis in his joints. There is a ring developing around his ankle, not painful, just looks like a little slightly hard doughnut around the ankle joint, and I am wondering if arthritis can develop in this manner. We have not had an xray yet. No edema or uric acid problems, and he has kidney/bladder issues - specifically Nephrogenic Diabetes Insipidus, catheter minimally 6 times daily with 4500 - 6000 cc output daily. ( hope I spelled it correctly) Thank you for your time, Brenda/Tomball

Hello,

For arthritis you may use calcium once a day and tablet artilage twice a day. For nephrognic diabetes patients may reduce the protein and salt consumption. Use NSAID like ibuprofen, naproxen to reduce urine output. Thiazide diuretics may useful to reduce the urine output. If no improvement please consult with your physician he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
