Dupuytren’s Contracture – Diagnosis, Causes and Treatment Options


Why did I get a tabletop test?

One reason that your doctor will issue a tabletop test is to check for Dupuytren’s disease. The test is whether you can lay your hand flat on a table, making sure that every finger can be straightened. If you have fallen victim to Dupuytren’s disease, it is usually effortless to spot. The condition starts as a hard lump in the palm of your hand that pulls on the fingers’ cords causing them to bend unnaturally towards the palm. The ring and middle fingers are the ones that tend to be affected, however, it can occur in any of them. The lump is not usually painful in any way but may cause difficulties with daily activities. 

How did I contract Vikings disease?

If you have Vikings disease, then your fingers are likely bending into your hand, and you can’t do simple tasks because of this. Vikings disease is Dupuytren’s Contracture, and it is named this because the Vikings suffered from the disease and then spread it throughout Northern Europe. You see, Vikings disease is hereditary, so if you have contracted it, it’s because of your lineage. Other factors may trigger illness like heavy drinking or excessive smoking. You are also more susceptible to the disease if you have diabetes or take seizure medications.
