About Scleritis

Scleritis is related to anterior scleritis and sclerosing keratitis. An important gene associated with Scleritis is TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor), and among its related pathways/superpathways are MIF Mediated Glucocorticoid Regulation and Innate Immune System. The drugs beta-Endorphin and Melanocyte-Stimulating Hormones have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include eye, skin and neutrophil, and related phenotypes are homeostasis/metabolism and immune system

Major Symptoms of Scleritis

Scleritis is an autoimmune condition that causes inflammation and swelling in the skin, joints, eyes, and other organs. The major symptoms include joint pain and stiffness, especially in the morning, presence of erythema, decreased range of motion, and sensitivity to touch. In severe cases, it can cause vision loss, joint deformities, and even life-threatening complications. Treatment typically involves managing symptoms with medication and dietary adjustments, and addressing underlying autoimmune conditions.

Suitable Lifestyle for People with Scleritis

Scleritis is an autoimmune disease that often causes inflammation and pain in the joints and skin. People suffering from Scleritis can adopt the following lifestyle changes to relieve symptoms and promote recovery:

1. Maintain good eating habits. The diet should be as rich in vitamins, minerals and protein as possible, and spicy, greasy and irritating foods should be avoided.

2. Maintain appropriate exercise. Appropriate exercise can enhance the stability of muscles and ligaments and reduce pain and inflammation, but strenuous exercise should be avoided to avoid causing more inflammation.

3. Get enough sleep. Scleritis can cause fatigue and decreased sleep quality, so patients should maintain adequate sleep time, about 7-8 hours every night.

4. Reduce stress. The symptoms of Scleritis may cause patients a certain amount of psychological stress and anxiety, so relaxation methods can be adopted to reduce stress, such as meditation, deep breathing, yoga, etc.

5. Avoid infection. Scleritis is prone to infection, especially on the skin and joints, so patients should avoid contact with sources of infection, such as other people and animals, as much as possible.

6. Standardize treatment. If the symptoms of Scleritis are severe, it is recommended to seek medical treatment in time and receive standard treatment from the doctor, including drug treatment, physical therapy and surgical treatment if necessary.
