First what is the difference between chronic disease and terminal illness. Chronic disease is a disease like diabetes where as terminal illness is a disease that will kill the person who has it if not treated or cured. Even inflammation can be a chronic disease. It is a disease that is prolonged or long-term even lasting one’s whole life time. As we compare the two conditions, the question arises: why would someone who has a chronic disease accept it and live with it. A person with a terminal illness does not accept their disease they attempt to cure it least they perish. So, one could make the case that people accept chronic disease because although they are sick at least it will not necessarily kill them.
However, chronic disease is the body in a constant state of dis ease or disease. The body is constantly sick. Chronic disease, such as simple inflammation, can lead to other health complications. If there was a cure for chronic disease, would you seek the cure or manage the disease? We know from other health professionals that there is no money in health but rather in disease. What is even better is to keep the disease (chronic disease) around and simply manage the disease and this is more profitable than a disease that one cures. So, again why do we accept chronic disease? Share your thoughts with the community by posting them below.
