Chronic inflammation is one of the most common chronic diseases, and research shows that it’s one of our most frequently reported symptoms.
If you have it, you know you’re not alone.
But you may be wondering what the heck it all means.
But what exactly is inflammation?
Is it just a common complaint of the chronically ill?
Or does it actually have a complex, disease-like pathology?
Is inflammation caused by a variety of conditions?
Or is it simply one of those weird symptoms that we’re used to seeing and reporting on?
Today, we’re going to talk about how inflammation is a disease-related disease.
But before we do, let’s start with a brief history lesson on how we get to where we are today.
______________________________________________________________________________________ How We Got Here How did we get here?
The first symptoms of inflammation are achy joints, pain, and fatigue.
We’ve all experienced these symptoms at some point.
But they’re really the first signs of a serious disease.
The inflammation can be subtle, or it can be severe.
In some cases, the symptoms will just get worse and worse.
For example, if you suffer from arthritis, inflammation can lead to a chronic inflammation of your bones and joints.
It’s not uncommon for a person to experience pain for months at a time.
A person with chronic inflammation can also have anemia, a condition where the body doesn’t have enough iron.
What are the symptoms of chronic inflammation?
Many of us have experienced pain from a variety the diseases that have been linked to chronic inflammation, like diabetes, heart disease, cancer, arthritis, and a host of other diseases.
For many of us, the chronic inflammation that we experience is also the chronic pain that we have.
In many cases, our pain isn’t due to a physical condition like a broken bone, an injury, or an infection.
It may be due to something as simple as poor diet, poor exercise, or a lack of regular exercise.
As we get older, our inflammation worsens, so we have a higher chance of developing a range of chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension.
When does inflammation become chronic?
When the body begins to develop chronic inflammation in an unhealthy way, like an autoimmune disease, a disease that attacks its own cells, or is caused by infections, it is called chronic.
Chronic inflammation can cause pain, inflammation, and other symptoms.
And chronic inflammation is just one of many diseases that can cause inflammation, including: Autism: Autistic kids and adults have an increased risk of developing chronic inflammation and/or diabetes.
Inflammation is a common symptom of autism, which is the first in a series of developmental disorders.
Diabetes: While it’s common to have symptoms like burning or itching, this is also a condition that can be caused by insulin resistance, which prevents the body from using fat as energy.
Epilepsy: Epilepsy can cause symptoms like a loss of coordination, hyperactivity, and even hallucinations.
Dementia: This is a type of dementia that can occur when the brain stops functioning normally.
Permanent neuropathy: This can cause the skin to lose its elasticity, leading to painful blisters.
Cancer: Some cancers, like breast, prostate, or pancreatic cancer, can cause painful inflammation that can lead, for example, to pain or swelling in the feet, knees, or ankles.
Migraine: Migraine can cause headaches and fatigue, and the effects can last for weeks or months.
Heart disease: Chronic heart disease can lead people to have irregular heartbeats or heart palpitations.
Autistic disorders: Children with autism and/inattentive children, for instance, can be more susceptible to chronic pain and inflammation.
Hypertension: While not everyone with hypertension develops chronic inflammation like diabetes does, those who do often develop elevated blood pressure.
Osteoporosis: As a result of chronic osteoporotic lesions in the legs and feet, people with osteopOR can develop pain, swelling, and pain with stiffness.
High cholesterol: While most of us don’t have high cholesterol, people who have high levels of cholesterol have higher risk of cardiovascular disease, including heart disease.
Type 2 diabetes: Type 2 diabetes is a rare condition that affects between one and six percent of the population.
Fertility: Many women who have type 2 diabetes are at a higher risk for having a child with diabetes.
In some cases it can lead the child to develop a severe form of diabetes.
How does chronic inflammation affect our bodies?
Excessive inflammation can make us more susceptible and vulnerable to disease.
It can lead us to develop problems like: Low body temperature : Inflammation can cause a low body temperature, which makes it hard for us to regulate our body temperature. Insulin
