Inflammation in the body can be either acute or chronic. It’s a part of the body’s defense mechanism and healing process. However, chronic inflammation refers to a slow, long-term inflammation, which lasts for prolonged periods of several months to years.
Chronic inflammation is central to many chronic conditions, especially those that develop with age. Identifying the precise causes that lead to inflammation — and why some people appear to be more sensitive to them than others — isn’t so simple. What is clear, however, is that diet appears to have the most significant impact.
In fact, the National Health Service has found a correlation between diets with a high content of processed foods, such as soft drinks, refined grains, and processed meats, and inflammatory biomarker levels. Why? This is mainly because processed foods are typically high in chemical additives.
Beyond a poor diet, there are other factors that can elicit an inflammatory response, including:
There are several elements that promote chronic inflammation. Here are some variables that can be associated with elevated risk for chronic inflammation:
There’s a significant amount of research that has connected chronic inflammation with diseases such as cancer, breathing issues, Alzheimer’s, and heart disease. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), chronic inflammatory diseases are the most significant cause of death in the world and the greatest threat to human health. 
Although further, more conclusive studies must still be done, here are some common damaging conditions linked to chronic inflammation:
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are widely used for chronic pain management. However, adverse gastrointestinal (GI) and cardiovascular (CV) events are present among NSAIDs. They offer temporary relief, but dangerous collateral effects. Cenegenics’ approach is to treat the root of the problem. By using the world’s leading tests such as high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) and fibrinogen, we’re able to get the most accurate and up-to-date picture of what is going on with your health.
