Vasculitis is an inflammation that causes changes in blood vessel walls such as narrowing, obstruction or widening, thereby restricting blood flow and possibly damaging organs and tissues. It is an uncommon disease that can affect anyone and at any age.
Vasculitis explained in first person
At present, the established treatment is with corticosteroids and immunosuppressants. Work well, but in many cases there can be serious long-term side effects. For this reason, treatments have been evolving in recent years, and biological therapies are being used more. These are new, innovative treatments which treat the inflammatory pathway at the molecular level.
Vasculitis is not a problem at all for me anymore and it doesn’t prevent me from leading a normal life. It is not a concern, except that I have to remember to take my medication.
