Behcet’s Disease – Home Page August 26, 2016

Behcet’s Disease is a chronic rheumatic illness, initiated through the bodies immune system being over-reactive, and producing unpredictable episodes of inflammation which affect mostly the small blood vessels. Symptoms may occur wherever there is a blood supply. Most can be suppressed by the right and relevant treatment. To date the cause is still unknown. It is not known if the disease is hereditary, but this is suspected (some families do have the disease in different generations). It is not thought to be an infection.

Good health and well being are precious. With Bechet’s Disease, we can be condemned to the world of relative isolation and anxiety. To help people understand these problems and encourage them to take the best possible care of their Bechet’s Disease we provide this section full of helpful information.

Bechet’s Disease is a chronic rheumatic illness, initiated through the body’s immune system being over reactive, and producing unpredictable episodes of inflammation which affects only the small blood vessels. Symptoms may occur wherever there is a blood supply. Most can be suppressed by the right and relevant information. To date the cause is still unknown. It is not known if the disease is hereditary, but this is suspected (some families do have the disease in different generations). It is not thought to be an infection.

What is the Prognosis for a Person with Bechet’s Disease?

Most people with Bechet’s Disease can lead normal lives and control their symptoms with proper medicine, rest and exercise. Doctors can use many medicines to relieve pain, treat symptoms, and prevent complications. When treatment is effective, flares usually become less frequent after 1 or 2 years. Many patients eventually enter a period of remission. In some people however, treatment does not relieve symptoms and gradually more serious symptoms such as eye disease may occur. Serious symptoms may appear months or years after the first signs of Bechet’s Disease.

To find out more about Bechet’s Disease we recommend that you take a look at other information sections. These are diagnosis and causes, Sulphur project, Symptoms & General, Treatments and medications. The links are on the left side of the menu.
