Who deals with Inflammation?

I think the safe answer is all of us in some way shape or form at some point in our life.

Well, hot off the presses from August 10, 2020 update to a NCBI Medical Report, shows that Arthritis and Joint Diseases (two of many diseases to cause inflammation): affect approximately 350 million people worldwide and nearly 43 million people in the United States or almost 20% of the population. This number is expected to exceed 60 million by the end of 2020. Nearly, 2.1 million Americans suffer from rheumatoid arthritis.

According to the report, Inflammation is part of the body's defense mechanism. It is the process by which the immune system recognizes and removes harmful and foreign stimuli and begins the healing process. Inflammation can be either acute or chronic.[1][2][3]

Acute Inflammation

Tissue damage due to trauma, microbial invasion, or noxious compounds can induce acute inflammation. It starts rapidly, becomes severe in a short time and symptoms may last for a few days for example cellulitis or acute pneumonia. Subacute inflammation is the period between acute and chronic inflammation and may last 2 to 6 weeks.

Chronic Inflammation

Chronic inflammation is also referred to as slow, long-term inflammation lasting for prolonged periods of several months to years. Generally, the extent and effects of chronic inflammation vary with the cause of the injury and the ability of the body to repair and overcome the damage. This article reviews chronic inflammation.

Chronic inflammatory diseases are the most significant cause of death in the world. The World Health Organization (WHO) ranks chronic diseases as the greatest threat to human health.

Worldwide, 3 of 5 people die due to chronic inflammatory diseases like stroke, chronic respiratory diseases, heart disorders, cancer, obesity, and diabetes. [4][5][6]

You may be asking what are the signs and symptoms of chronic inflammation?

  • Body pain, arthralgia, myalgia

  • Chronic fatigue and insomnia

  • Depression, anxiety and mood disorders

  • Gastrointestinal complications like constipation, diarrhea, and acid reflux

  • Weight gain or weight loss

  • Frequent infections
