My Mom has been battling a self-induced kidney problem for more than a year now. Yes, I wrote self-induced because the problem was borne out of not eating properly while taking her usual medications. She thought she was eating enough but apparently it was not the case.
Ah… the problem that goes with getting old. I can actually understand her as she has not been the same since my Dad’s untimely death two years ago. Now, she has to get treatments not only for her kidney but I’ve learned recently that arthritis is starting to set in.
While I can’t really be of help right now as I’m thousands of miles away, I have been reading up about arthritis on online portals such as the one at: www.treatmentsforarthritis.net. It does help me understand about the possible treatments and I will certainly feel more confident to talk to her doctors via phone about her treatment options.
