Chronic inflammation is a lingering, long term condition, which typically lasts for months and years. The immune system keeps fighting and the continuing released white blood cells start to attack nearby healthy tissues and organs. It is associated with many medical conditions including autoimmune diseases, diabetes, heart disease, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, some cancers, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, Crohn’s disease, chronic kidney disease and ulcerative colitis.
