In older age there are many diseases which could attack us due to the low immunity like diabetes, cancer, kidney disorders, prostate enlargement, skin disorders and many more. Sometimes the diseases are easy to assess and sometimes it is hard to diagnose them. This is because the causes are not well known or the picture of the disease is not quite clear. Today in this topic, we are going to discuss one such disease called Monoclonal Gammopathy.
This is a medical condition which is characterised by the formation of abnormal proteins formed in the bone marrow from the small number of plasma cells. This type of abnormal protein is also called M protein or monoclonal protein. This is also called Monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS). This usually affects the elderly people. Though this is not a type of cancer, people suffering from this condition are susceptible to the cancer. Men are more prone to this disease.
The exact cause of the monoclonal gammopathy is not known, but there are some factors in the environment which could cause or trigger the origin of this disease like:
- Genetics: Family history, if one has this condition in their parents or so, then they also have risk to develop this condition
- Immune system error: Some kind of insufficiency or error in the response of the immune system might cause monoclonal gammopathy.
- Age: People who are in their 70s are most vulnerable.
Though the disease does not project any symptoms but sometime it might be causing the following:
- Multiple myeloma
- Non-hodgkin lymphoma
- Plasma cell leukaemia
- Weight loss
As monoclonal gammopathy does not produce any symptoms itself, it is accidentally diagnosed when the blood work has been advised by a physician for some other medical conditions. Once, an abnormal protein is accidentally found in your blood smear, the physician may advise you for more blood tests and bone marrow tests.
There is no specific treatment of monoclonal gammopathy in the allopathy, but the doctor may ask you to follow up after every 6 months, to see if there is any involvement of other conditions.
Ayurvedic Point of View in Monoclonal Gammopathy
In Ayurveda the concept of assessing a disease and preparing a treatment plan for the same is different from modern science. It is not bounded only till the organs which are involved, but to the system (the body) as a whole. This is because there is a strong belief in Ayurveda, that the body is composed of five elements of the universe Air, Space, Water, Fire and Soil. And these elements in a fixed proportion and combination forms a dosha. There are three doshas described in the ancient Ayurvedic texts; Vata, Pitta and Kapha. These three doshas are always there in every being which is alive in a balanced way. A disease is a result of deviation of this balance, which results in vitiation of one of these three doshas. Therefore the real diagnosis in Ayurveda is to recognise the dosha involved and not merely the organs. Once, the involved dosha is recognised, a treatment plan could be prepared to pacify the same. In this condition of monoclonal gammopathy, there is an involvement of Kapha dosha.
