Overview:
Inflammation is our body’s way of fighting infections, injuries, or toxins. In the short-term or acute stage, this is good as it promotes our body’s natural defense mechanisms to trigger an immune response of antibodies, proteins, and increased blood flow to the damaged area. However, if this response continues for more than a few days, it leads to a state of chronic inflammation which has a negative impact on the body. Chronic inflammation causes damage to cells, tissues, and organs leading to DNA damage, tissue death, and organ dysfunction. This course will break down chronic inflammation and how dietitians can use medical nutrition therapy to promote positive patient outcomes.

• Describe the pathophysiology of chronic inflammation.
