What Is Osteoarthritis

  • Osteoarthritis (OA) is also known as degenerative joint disease, degenerative arthritis is a chronic condition that can harm any join. However, the most likely affected parts are knees, hips, lower back, and neck, small joints of the fingers, thumb and the big toes’ base. 

What Is Hypokalemia

Hypokalemia occurs when there is a significant reduction in the potassium levels in the body. Potassium acts as an important mineral that helps in proper functioning of the muscle and nerve cells through its electrolytic properties. Kidneys in the body are responsible for regulating the levels of potassium in the body, letting the extra potassium pass out in the form of sweat or urine from the body.  

What Is Muscle Fatigue

When muscles are unable to generate force over an extended period of activity or for some pathological issues, it is called muscle fatigue.

The body muscles need oxygen to produce energy. But, when the muscles use up all the stored energy and oxygen, they start generating energy through a process that makes a waste product called lactic acid. As an amount of this acid increases in your muscle, you feel fatigue and experience pain.

Muscle fatigue is associated with some potential causes such as ion imbalance in muscles, impaired blood flow, nervous fatigue, and an accumulation of lactic acid in muscles. It is a common problem in most of the people especially who are associated with sports.

Symptoms Treated With JAC UP TABLET

What Are The Symptoms Of Osteoarthritis

  • Joint pain and stiffness are the major symptoms. Pain, decreased the range of movement, medication’s side-effects can further deteriorate the well-being. The decreased mobility due to OA in the knee or hip-joint can be a cause of diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure.    

What Are The Symptoms Of Hypokalemia

Hypokalemia symptoms usually do not show up until the potassium levels in the body have reached an extremely low level. It is prudent to stay aware of the symptoms Hypokalemia if they occur. Here are a few:

  • Faster heart beats (palpitations).
  • Muscle cramps.
  • Constipation.
  • Fatigue.
  • Weakness.
  • Potassium levels below 2.5 mmol/L are considered to be fatal. These can be diagnosed by symptoms like:
  • Lazy bowels (Ileus).
  • Muscle tissue rupture.
  • Failure of respiratory organs.
  • Paralysis.
  • Vomiting.
  • Nausea.
  • Loss of appetite.

People who consume medications containing digitalis (a drug made from herbs) can witness irregular heartbeat conditions.

What Are The Symptoms Of Muscle Fatigue

Muscle fatigue is associated with a number of signs and symptoms. You should understand the factors so that you can be careful while performing exercising activities:

  • Muscle weakness: A common symptom of muscle fatigue is the weakness in muscles. This symptom can give you feeling like your legs are made of spaghetti, and they are not able to handle your weight.
  • Leg twitching: Your leg muscles can experience a twitching feeling due to the muscle weakness; this condition is known as myoclonic jerks. It is also a common symptom for a person who is diagnosed with fibromyalgia. The brain sends the impulse signals and instructs the twitching muscle to relax and contract as early as possible.
  • Reduced activity: A person can experience a lack of energy or he/she is unable to do regular physical activities. This particular type of muscle weakness can be a result of insufficient blood flow to the muscles. Patients, who are suffering from various cardiovascular issues such as high blood pressure, may experience this type of a symptom.
  • Weak grips: During the weight lifting, an athlete may feel that he/she is not able to get an enough grip of a dumbbell or a barbell. Sometimes, it can be experienced with uncontrolled trembling. These are the apparent symptoms of muscle fatigue. These conditions are known as exercise-induced muscle fatigue. A weak grip along with trembling feeling indicates that a person ends up his/her activity limit. By these symptoms, the muscles protect themselves from further injury.

Causes of diseases where JAC UP TABLET is used

What Are The Causes Of Osteoarthritis

  • Aging and obesity are the most common causes, though there are many more reasons that can cause OA.    

What Are The Causes Of Hypokalemia

There a number of causes for Hypokalemia in the body. Here are some of the prominent ones.

  • Kidney disorders such as Liddle Syndrome, Bartter Syndrome, And Gitelman Syndrome lead to increase in blood pressure and imbalance in the salt and potassium in the body.
  • Chewing tobacco

  • Poisoning by Barium

What Are The Causes Of Muscle Fatigue

While exercising, the muscles can feel weak, tired, and painful. This happens due to the muscle fatigue. Muscle fatigue is associated with a number of physical, nutritional, biochemical, and environmental factors. These factors are as follows:

Anaerobic Respiration: Muscles require energy in order to move and contract our body parts, and the body cells have to produce oxygen to create an essential energy. When the sufficient amount of oxygen has been supplied, then the associated cell respiration procedure is called aerobic respiration. But, when the oxygen is not enough, the cells bound to respire in an anaerobic process, and as a result, lactic acid is generated. Lactic acid is basically a waste element that causes fatigue and muscle pain.

Mineral Deficiencies: Certain electrolytes and minerals are essential for proper muscle functioning. When these important minerals such as magnesium, potassium, and calcium get reduced, then a person may experience sudden muscle cramps and fatigue.

Aging:  With ageing, our muscles start to lose their strength and become weaker. Exercise can improve the muscle strength and power. But, you should be very careful with your exercise routine.

Infections: Infections associated with illness are one of the general causes of temporary muscle weakness and fatigue.

Pregnancy: During or after pregnancy, the level of steroids gets increased in the blood, and as a result, anaemia can be developed (lacking in iron). It can cause a muscle fatigue.
