Treatment for Whipple Disease
What is Whipple Disease?
Whipple disease is a bacterial infection that negatively impacts your digestive system and joints, making proper digestion an issue. This is a rare medical condition that causes issues with breaking down food and absorbing nutrients.
Common symptoms include:
Some people may experience less common symptoms like:
- Chest pain
- Skin darkening in the sun and in scars
- Trouble walking
- Memory loss
- Visual disturbances like not being able to control your eye movements
Certain people are at high risk for Whipple disease, including:
- White people in Europe or North America
- People who work outside near sewage or wastewater
- Men who are 40 to 60 years old
Visit a Doctor
Visit a doctor if you experience symptoms like unexplained weight loss or joint pain.
A bacterium called Tropheryma whipplei is the cause of Whipple disease. This bacterium first causes small sores and damage within the small intestine. Information about Whipple disease, like where this bacteria comes from and how it spreads to humans, is limited. However, experts think people that have this disease may have a genetic defect in their immune system. Only about 1 in 1 million people are affected by this disease.
People with Whipple disease are at risk for complications, such as:
- Impairment of nutrient absorption
- Weight loss
- Joint pain
- Irreversible damage to the nervous system
Fortunately, Whipple disease is rare, yet the damage can be fatal. Seek immediate medical attention if you experience joint pain or unexplained weight loss for full treatment of this disease.
However, Vida-Flo has the best solution for the immediate relief of some Whipple disease symptoms.
