Q:

What is cuff tear arthropathy?

A:

Cuff tear arthropathy is the term for a particular type of arthritis in the shoulder joint. Due to the weakening, wear or injury to the tendons of the rotator cuff, the shoulder joint moves in a certain way that allows this type of arthritis to develop over time. If you have shoulder pain and you think it could be arthritis, you should visit your doctor for an assessment.

Q:

डायबिटिक रेटिनोपैथी और इंट्राविट्रियल इंजेक्शन

A:

हाई शुगर की वजह से, आपकी शुगर जब ऊंची होती है, डायबिटिक रेटिनोपैथी होती है आँखों में। इसका मतलब है कि पर्दे में सूजन, पर्दे में खून, और धीरे-धीरे रौशनी कट सकती है, नई नसें उग सकती हैं अंदर, और ये नई नसें अच्छी नहीं हैं क्योंकि धीरे-धीरे ये भी टूट के खून हो जाएगा आँख के अंदर, अचानक दिखाई नहीं देगा या ये बड़ी हो कर पर्दे को ही फाड़ देंगी जिससे आपको कुछ नहीं दिखाई देगा।
