When I look at my doctor’s notes, I am always amazed at the amount of medical terms that are used. Many of these terms have a specific medical meaning, like the term “sarcoidosis” or “elevated IgG4.” This is just another way of saying that something is “inflammated.
Sarcoidosis is the most common example, and in many cases it is caused by a fungal infection. When something is inflamed, it has to do with the body’s immune system, and its response to what it sees. IgG4, an immune system marker, is a specific marker for inflammation, and is often elevated in sarcoidosis.
Sometimes people with sarcoidosis complain of shortness of breath, weight loss, fatigue, and other symptoms that are similar to those of autoimmune disease. This is a good example of something that is in the body but not causing any symptoms.
Sarcoidosis is a form of autoimmune disease, meaning it’s caused by an inflammatory response to something in the body. The inflamed area is not necessarily the site of the disease, but rather a place where the immune system can attack the area and take over. A specific problem is that the area where the disease is making a problem is not an area that is already inflamed. These areas have to be inflamed to cause the disease.
Sarcoidosis is also known as granulomatous disease or sarcoidosis and is what causes the disease.
A good example of this is the eye where the disease causes granulomas, which are collections of inflammatory cells that are foreign to the immune system.
Sarcoidosis is typically caused by a disease that infects macrophages. Macrophages, also known as macrophages, are the body’s defense against foreign invaders. Macrophages are not only found in the lungs, but in the heart, brain, and intestine. When a macrophage infection occurs the body produces large amounts of cytokines, which is what causes the inflammation in the affected areas.
Sarcoidosis is a disease of the immune system and is often triggered by exposure to a foreign substance. In Sarcoidosis, the inflammatory cells and cytokines cause damage to the lining of the blood vessels and the organs. The condition is most often found in people who have not had an infection.
Macrophages are the cells that clear our blood of any toxic substances, foreign particles, and other harmful materials. They are the first cells to be activated in an immune response. Our lungs have some really nasty stuff in the air we breathe. The macrophages have to clear it all out before any of our other immune cells can respond.
It’s not only our lungs that have this nasty stuff in the air we breathe. Our blood vessels are lined with tiny white cells. When the macrophages are activated by a foreign particle, they can’t get to the area of damage fast enough and they can’t clear as well as they’d like. The macrophages are the ones that do the messy work for us in the blood vessels, but they can’t clean up the blood vessels very well.
