Acute and chronic inflammation

The body’s normal reaction to a warning is called acute inflammation. “The body marshals its defenses to prevent injury or infection,” says Alan Mensch, MD, senior vice president of medical affairs at Northwell’s Plainview Hospital.

Signs of this reaction include swelling, dilated blood vessels, heat, redness, and pain. “Once the threat is gone, there are factors in the bloodstream that quiet things down again.”

Chronic inflammation is related to many illnesses, such as bursitis, colitis, phlebitis, and rhinitis to asthma, cardiac disease, liver disease, or Alzheimer’s disease.

It is hard to know whether you have chronic inflammation in your body, Dr. Mensch says: “It depends on where and how chronic inflammation manifests itself. And it’s not the same in every person.”

  1. I’ve had most of these symptoms knowing there has to be a reason, but doctors cannot label the problem. Sad. So what to do next? Go to a different doctor? Take this article to show the doctor telling him I have inflammation? how can you find out what is causing the inflammation?

  2. Anyone know how to deal with inflammation seeing that doctors can not help. Has anyone had success with a remidy?

    1. Yes Tina. Inflammation is linked to our diet. My doctor put me on a strict NO SALT diet, no processed foods, no eating out and many more restrictions. Wow what a difference, lowered my BB, lost 25 lbs, regained my energy and reduced my swelling.

  3. Agree. Last year, I got my flu shot and became very sick. I changed my diet to plant based no eating out, no dairy, and I have read numerous articles on improving my immune system. I have read
    the book How Not to Die by Michael Greger.
