National Sarcoidosis Day
The awareness day of April 30th is an opportunity to raise awareness on Sarcoidosis, a disease that affects the body’s immune system and can cause inflammation of cells.
Why Sarcoidosis Day?
This day is a time to raise awareness about the disease sarcoidosis. This Inflammatory Processed due to an accumulation in cells which causes Granuloma, these immune systems can attack and affect any organ whether it be eyes or lungs but certain consequences are depending on what your specific situation may turn out to be with this condition.
The National Sarcoidosis Day will help you learn more so that maybe we could find ways to combat these problems before they become serious enough!
While the root cause of Sarcoidosis is unknown, it could be genetics since this disease primarily affects African-American people more than European American and autoimmune disorders. However, there’s no evidence either way yet; scientists are trying to find out how they can cure early stages without treatment available now though!
However, some patients do not receive any treatment or medication. The high-risk situation was estimated at 1% – 7%.
Today is the day dedicated to creating awareness among people about Pulmonary Sarcoidosis. It affects lungs, eventually resulting in death due to ignorance 1 million sufferers were affected as well 120000 lives lost so far- nearly all we know about this disease comes from research papers or case studies which aren’t enough!
How we can Observe National Sarcoidosis Day:
The hashtag #SarcoidosisUNknown is a great way to get information about this rare disease. Women who are between 20 and 50 years old have the highest chances of being diagnosed with sarcoidosis, so you must check yourself once per year for signs or symptoms!
Interesting Facts About Sarcoidosis Day:
Fortunately, 90% of those who suffer from Sarcoidosis can lead healthy lives. However, there is still some risk involved due mostly in later stages when inflammation has progressed beyond the lungs and into other parts including blood vessels throughout your pulmonary arteries–a circumstance which may result in permanent damage if left untreated or poorly controlled with medication like Coumadin (warfarin).
For those who have been diagnosed with Sarcoidosis, it is important to know the extent of their condition. The inflammation can be found in 10% percent or more parts of your body depending on where you see symptoms such as skin problems and heart issues like arrhythmia (abnormal beating). There are other organs affected too including muscles/joints but these typically appear after another set has already been established for certain areas due to proximity between them; I example lungs vs liver.
Many different types of skin disorders can affect anyone. One type is patch disease, which causes red patches on your scalp and other parts of the body–it doesn’t usually cause any major problems except in rare cases where untreated wounds from these pesky bugs might not heal properly due to their effects being blocked by hair growth at an earlier stage than expected (a common reason why people have thinning scalps). Treatment options include medicated shampoos or Conditioners used daily before bedtime; both will help reduce inflammation caused invitingly by this insect’s bites as well as stop any potential further hair loss from the area.
Cardiac Sarcoidosis is a disease that affects the heart, lungs, and skin. It’s not common compared to another organs-in fact only 5% of patients diagnosed with sarcoids have been reported as having cardiac involvement! Symptoms can range from nothing at all or sudden ventricular failure leading immediately into Heart block–but these highly complicated cases are very rare. The good news is that early diagnosis and treatment usually mean a full recovery.
Eye Sarcoidosis can be severe and lead to permanent blindness, unlike Skin. It primarily occurs within the retina where it causes inflammation that further manifests as an annular scaring pattern around RBCs (red blood cell) leading up into retinal degeneration resulting in final vision loss.”
Neuro Sarcoidosis is a disease that affects the central nervous system of your body. Symptoms could be non-regular menstruation, changes in body temperature, and diabetes insipidus.
It also affects bones muscles joints causing swelling within those respective parts; medication or treatment will depend on how bad it has gotten though both are available to help you feel better!
History of Sarcoidosis Day:
The origin and creator of National Sarcoidosis day are unknown, but it’s a great month to learn about this condition. April was proposed as an awareness month by Congress in 2008 because researchers weren’t sure what else could be done with such patients who suffer from lung disease without cure or treatment options available at their time of diagnosis.
This Saturday, April 27th is being observed as National Sarcoidosis Awareness Day. It’s a day to raise awareness and find solutions for this chronic disease that affects one in ten people every year – but there are no cures yet!
