General Info about Vasculitis

Vascular system is made up of a network of blood vessels, which includes veins, arteries and capillaries.

The inflammation of these blood vessels can occur in any part of the body and is referred to as Vasculitis. Vasculitis causes changes in the walls of blood vessels, such as thickening, weakening, narrowing and scarring. In certain cases the blood cells itself can invade the vessel wall, leading to damage of the surrounding tissue and obstruction of the vessel itself. Due to obstruction of vessel, the blood flow to a particular organ is reduced which damages the organ in the long run. The severity of this condition and its consequences depends on the site, size and extent of vessel involvement.

Hi, I am 36 years male, I had 4 bouts of nasal polyps operation and I developed asthma after my first operation. I had used dose regime of corticosteroids and antibiotics for all the times. I had to go to emergency at least 4 times with rashes on my feet and I did not use any medications. In one instance my CRP was high and also my esinophilic counts and IgE. Now I have a esinophil count between 8-11% with mucous in my nostrils,loss of smell and also in my stool. I feel I have inflammation in my viscera altering at different locations. All the signs do points to Vesiculitis but no doctor has diagnosed me that condition during my visits.I once got ANA positive but this can sometimes be false negative. I don't know what to do could you help

They have shown vasculitis to be linked to siderosis and a lack of antioxidants. Siderosis causes oxidation so one can understand WHY one might be low on antioxidants. Low iron diet and iron depletion therapy. "For the first time, we present one patient with vasculitis of the central nervous system associated with systemic hemochromatosis in superficial siderosis. Therapeutic approach included immunosuppressive therapy and venupunctures in the patient with vasculitis and hemochromatosis, and symptomatic treatment with chelating agents and antioxidants. The patient remained clinically stable for the follow-up period of up to 2 years."
