Patient Q&A Section

What are common treatments for disease?

"There are several common treatments for disease. The most common treatment for pain such as diabetic neuropathy, is opioids and antineuronal agents. Chronic disease such as coronary heart disease, is treated with aspirin and medication used to lower blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels. A treatment for chronic heart failure is to help the patient remain active and healthy by providing support for the patient to do regular physical activities to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What causes disease?

"There are many different diseases that can lead to a fatal illness. If you do not want to die, and you get sicker and sicker, you need a doctor. There is no one way to get better. It seems crazy, but in a lot of ways it's the world we construct. I've got plenty of luck in this life, and I'd be happy to take it." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Can disease be cured?

"It is impossible to restore a nondiseasurable health condition to an absolute health state. It is possible to do as close as possible to that state without restoring the patient to complete health. That is to say, it is possible with reasonable medical care to make a patient healthier, and not to make it healthy." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What is disease?

"The term disease has been given many different meanings since ancient times. It is more useful to view disease as a process whereby the organism behaves differently to its ancestors and different from its peers and descendants or where the organism responds differently to the environment. Disease can be defined as any condition or event in an organism that significantly compromises its normal biological functions.\n\nIt has been suggested that, to have a sense, the expression of disease must be socially constructed and not only determined by a biological process. The social construction of disease, therefore, is a fundamental aspect of biological pathogenesis. Within the discipline of medical anthropology, the concept of disease has been interpreted in many ways." - Anonymous Online Contributor

How many people get disease a year in the United States?

"The American Cancer Society estimates about 200,000 deaths from cancer a year in the United States. Cancer deaths are more likely to occur after the age of 65. In the United States, cancer is now the most common disease-related cause of death. The rate of cancer death is highest in the 20- to 44-year age group and then declines to a steady level with age. Survival times are lengthened in blacks and for females aged 46 to 54 years, with the exception of colon cancer, in women aged 45 to 49 years old." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What are the signs of disease?

"The authors concluded with their recommendation to pay attention to the following signs or symptoms as they might suggest or help to differentiate lung problems from respiratory diseases: breathlessness, cough, chest pain, abnormal chest X-ray appearance, loss of appetite, vomiting, a low or fast heart rate, abnormal breathing sounds, sweating, or diarrhea.\n\nInfection is not necessarily a sign of disease. In fact, the infections that are linked to an increased risk of developing disease can be of benefit to the body.\nInfection is also associated with an increased risk of developing cancer and other diseases. It is thought that both the body's immune system and infection by microbes can affect immune response to the body." - Anonymous Online Contributor

How serious can disease be?

"The risk of death associated with asthma is not as high as doctors expected, even in young children who experience serious health problems. Doctors and patients should agree on the disease severity index to help direct the health-care team toward management of health problems, particularly in low-resource settings without access to care for patients in need of medical services." - Anonymous Online Contributor
