VASCULITIS

Vasculitis Treatment From the Experts at ARBDA, in New Jersey

Your cardiovascular system keeps you alive every second of every day. Its vast highway of blood vessels carry nutrients and oxygen to all the cells and organs of the body. In vasculitis, this life-sustaining process is interrupted as blood vessels become inflamed and narrowed.

Vasculitis treatment  is complex. Depending on where vasculitis occurs in the body determines the specific type of treatment. At Arthritis, Rheumatic & Back Disease Associates (ARBDA) in New Jersey we offer exceptional vasculitis treatment. Our highly-trained physicians work closely with each patient to understand the extent of their symptoms and determine the best course of treatment for their unique form of the disease.

What is vasculitis & what causes it?

Vasculitis is an autoimmune disease where the body mistakenly views blood vessels as foreign invaders. It causes inflammation to form that thickens and narrows the walls of the  blood vessels. This, in turn, restricts the delivery of blood and oxygen to vital organs of the body.

The exact cause of vasculitis is not fully understood, but some possible triggers that may prompt an attack include infections, blood cancers, and immune system diseases.

What are common symptoms of vasculitis?

Vasculitis can affect different parts of the body, depending on the type of  the disease an individual has. Since many organs may be involved, symptoms of this autoimmune disease can vary greatly. While some people experience minor signs and symptoms of the disease, others may become very sick. This is a chronic disease that needs long-term management.
