Is the inflammation only in one eye?When did it start?Have you had this before?
yes the inflammation is in one eye it started a week ago. I have have
I have never had anything like this before
It is true that iritis/uveitis is often associated with different autoimmune disease such as rheumatoid arthritis. There are many people, however, who have irits with no identifiable cause. If this is the first episdoe, then no need to worry.
If the iritis is recurrent, then it may be a good idea to have your primary care doctor check you for other systemic diseases associated with iritis.
Many people have just one episode of iritis that is isolated and not recurrent.
If this clears up well is there a chance it will strike again
But with one isolated episode, no need to go through additional test at this point.
Is there anything I can do to prevent this as in changing diet etc.My curent
diet is very poor mainly just high in fat and not enough fruit and veg
Nothing needs to be done except make sure the current inflammation goes away.. The prognosis is generally good in these situation.
Are there any supplements that can be taken as a form of anti inflammatories
No. Just a good diet in generally, but nothing specific.
