NEW YORK — Male gender, a diagnosis of diabetes and having native septic arthritis are factors that put patients with septic arthritis who undergo total joint arthroplasty at greater risk for developing prosthetic joint infection, a presenter said.
At the Musculoskeletal Infection Society (MSIS) Annual Open Scientific Meeting, Timothy L. Tan, MD, presented results of a retrospective study of patients who underwent 233 TJA procedures (124 total hip arthroplasties; 109 total knee arthroplasties) at four institutions and developed prosthetic joint infection (PJI).
Anupam Ghose, a physician by training, was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) in 2017. After the diagnosis of T2DM, he followed a low carbohydrate high fat diet and reversed his T2DM within a year. Now he has one main goal in life and that is to make people understand that the conventional method of treating T2DM is not beneficial. Type 2 diabetes is reversible and the best way to reverse T2DM is through diet and lifestyle modifications. He now decided to help people with type 2 diabetes by offering online coaching to reverse their diabetes.
