What is Reiter’s syndrome?
Reiter’s syndrome, or reactive arthritis, is caused by a urinary tract infection or some other part of the body that triggers a process of joint inflammation, with functional impotence and loss of mobility. At the same time, this disease carries signs of urethritis, inflammation due to infection of the urethra, uveitis or conjunctivitis.
Symptoms of Reiter’s Syndrome
The most common symptoms of Reiter’s syndrome are related to urination (burning, frequency, control of urine), low fever, eye discharge or redness, joint pain or stiffness, or skin ulcers.
Diagnosis of Reiter’s syndrome
The clinical history and the tests that we will carry out from our analysis department will allow us to determine the origin of the disease. At Biosalud Análisis we have a wide range of diagnostic tests, some developed by ourselves, which we carry out in collaboration with international laboratories.
Treatment of Reiter’s syndrome
In the case of Reiter’s syndrome, the treatment we propose at Biosalud begins by determining what has caused the onset of this reactive arthritis, which is usually an infectious event. Once the origin of the process has been determined, we will regulate the immune system in such a way as to reduce the permanent inflammations that have taken place. Progressively we will apply the most appropriate techniques of biological medicine to stop the evolution of the disease and for the patient to return to normal without pain and recover functionality.
