9781453804711: Common Chronic Illnesses and Their Treatments: A General Look at Fifteen Health Disorders

This book is a collection of fourteen articles/chapters addressing 15 common health disorders (Chapter 14 addresses 2 types of syndromes). Some of these are also classified as chronic, inflammatory and/or autoimmune in nature. These illnesses may have symptoms in-common with others that can manifest similarly and so a general understanding of them can help to distinguish them from other health disorders. In addition to information regarding symptoms, I have also included general aspects regarding diagnoses and treatments. It is my hope that the information contained within the chapters is both informative and interesting for the reader. At the same time, it should be understood that proper diagnosis and treatment for any disorder affecting one's health, should be obtained through a medical professional. This book is not intended to be an extensive manual but is intended to contain information most often sought by laypersons on the subjects. {The eBook version of this book (identical in content) was passed through the Amazon KDP Platform's word check and was found to have no spelling errors. Each chapter also appeared previously as an article on Suite101, which has strict editorial guidelines regarding grammar.} CONTENTS CHAPTER ONE: The Diagnosis and Treatment of Celiac Disease CHAPTER TWO: Diagnosing and Treating Sjogren's Syndrome CHAPTER THREE: Diagnosing and Treating Pernicious Anemia CHAPTER FOUR: Acid Reflux and Lung Disorders CHAPTER FIVE: Rheumatoid Arthritis Basic Facts CHAPTER SIX: Metabolic Syndrome Basic Facts CHAPTER SEVEN: Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Basic Facts CHAPTER EIGHT: Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease and NASH CHAPTER NINE: Thyroid Autoimmunity CHAPTER TEN: Osteoarthritis CHAPTER ELEVEN: Adrenal Insufficiency Basic Facts CHAPTER TWELVE: A Quick Look at Adrenal Fatigue CHAPTER THIRTEEN: Mitral Valve Prolapse the Common Heart Murmur CHAPTER FOURTEEN: CFS and Fibromyalgia - The Syndromes of Fatigue and Muscle Pain

About the Author:

I am a husband, father, grandfather and lifetime contract salesman, with experience in health writing that began in 2004. I completed theological studies with Liberty University in 1996. I formerly served as editor and forum moderator of Thyroid Health for a major multi-topic content site and as a general health writer for another, on which I achieved 4 Editor's Choice Awards for my articles on health subjects. In 2003 I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism; "Hashimoto's thyroiditis" being the cause. This autoimmune form of thyroid disease that causes destruction of the thyroid gland resulted in my also developing "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome", due to a compromised immune system with severe co-morbid "Adrenal Fatigue". I also suffered severe anxiety symptoms, including panic attacks early into the onset of Hashimoto's thyroiditis (Hashitoxicosis). A common heart murmur I was diagnosed with in my teens called "Mitral Valve Prolapse", also worsened in severity of symptoms, with the development of these other health disorders. My eventual receiving of diagnoses was a difficult process with proper diagnostic testing not being ordered by the first doctors I sought treatment from. These types of issues were inspiration for me to become proactive in my own health care and to self-educate myself on these health disorders, which I have done extensively since 2003. I now enjoy sharing this information with other patients experiencing my same health disorders.
