What is a chronic infection?
A chronic infection is a persistent, long-lasting infection that often does not resolve with conventional treatment. Chronic infections can be caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites and can occur in various parts of the body, including the lungs, urinary tract, or bloodstream.
What are the symptoms of a chronic infection?
The symptoms of a chronic infection can vary depending on the type and location of the infection. Common symptoms include:
- Pain or discomfort
- Weight loss
- Persistent cough
- Recurring infections
- Skin rashes or lesions
- Joint pain and inflammation
What are the causes of chronic infections?
Chronic infections can occur due to several factors, including:
- Weakened immune system: A compromised immune system can lead to recurrent infections and increase the risk of chronic infections.
- Biofilm formation: Bacteria can form biofilms, which can protect them from antibiotics and immune responses.
- Antibiotic resistance: Overuse of antibiotics can lead to antibiotic resistance, making it challenging to treat infections effectively.
- Underlying medical conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as HIV or diabetes, can increase the risk of chronic infections.
How are chronic infections diagnosed?
Chronic infections are typically diagnosed through a combination of medical history, physical examination, and diagnostic tests such as blood tests, imaging studies, or microbial cultures.
What are the advanced therapies available for chronic infections?
At Regenerative Medical Group, we offer several innovative therapies to address chronic infections. These include:
- IV Nutrient Therapy: IV nutrient therapy delivers high doses of vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream, supporting immune function and overall health.
- Peptide Therapy: Peptide therapy utilizes small proteins to modulate immune function, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.
What can I expect during a therapy session?
During a therapy session, a trained medical professional will administer the treatment, typically through intravenous (IV) infusion or injection. The therapy is generally well-tolerated, and you will be closely monitored throughout the session.
