OK, so I have a friend who has this. I don't know much about it. He lives in Romania and they just gave him painkillers. Is there anything else to treat this? Maybe someone can educate me more on it.

It runs in my family. I have the HLA-B27 gene but haven't been diagnosed with it yet...other members of my family have it. He needs to see a Rheumatologist. There are drugs called biologics that can slow it down but there is no cure.

Embril. Biologic. Helps immensely but no cure. Very expensive. Go to the manufacturer and see what low cost programs they have. Oh ya pot helps too

Yup... My best friend has it and humira was the only thing that works for him. It's a really disabling disease but he is a fuckin warrior. Your spine literally fuses together over the years as well as destroying your knees and smaller joints... He was diognosed in highschool when he could barely walk and is now 34 years old. The Guy weight trains in his garage every day, runs 2-3 miles a day, and plays full court basketball 2 twice a week while working 40+ hours a week.

My wife started with foot pain that eventually felt like she was walking on gravel barefoot and it got pretty crippling until they figured it out.

so much gets lost in the typed word
its unbelievable you can take something heart felt and misinterpret because of the way it reads

alot of it stems from the big mouths around here like the (un)swollen spartan who is always on the attack and talks shit about everyone, even people at the top. esp those people
I think most people come on here and think everyone is a prick

its tiresome to be on the forum with your arms up to block trolls and never will be assholes
apologies for not being more clear with the post, but I wont apologize for the defensive tone the forum has

I only say good luck because I see how hard it is for her to deal with it
some days are unmanageable
its a fight, and if the person is a fighter, like anything else they can achieve more then someone who is just lazy
sometimes she needs some luck, some times the disease wins

It's all good, CM... I never meant to make it look you had been agressive in any way, shape or form... just, well... kind of direct! :p ;)

And I actually like you and enjoy your - quality - contributions to PM... sincerely. :) You might have some beef with other members who don't always share your opinions, that's none of my business... you and I are cool! :)

Well many hippies would say by switching to a plant based diet it would cure him 100%.. Suppose something like that is worth a try if desperate but I'm not buying that shit.



Supposedly, physical exercises, rehab, anti inflammatory/immunosuppressive drugs etc.. are ways to ease it but there is no definitive cure.

Or even FASTING. ;)

In any cases, nothing to lose by trying indeed... :)

I have it and it's controllable via some dietary modifications.

It's caused by an overgrowth of a species of gut bacteria called klebsiella. Klebsiella looks very similar to HLA B27 to your immune system and when there is too much in your system, the immune system is triggered and attacks the HLA too. HLA is mainly concentrated around the spine and those joints basically get caught in the crossfire of the inflammation.

Klebsiella mainly thrives on 3 things - resistant starch, lactose and inulin. Drastically reducing these - mainly a low carb paleo type diet - is the best way to treat AS and any other autoimmune disease such as MS, Crohns, Hashimotos etc.

Get your friend to google 'ankylosing spondylitis low starch diet' and there are quite a few good youtube vids on it too.
