A degenerative disease is the result of a continuous process based on degenerative cell changes in the effected area of the body. These disorders can affecting tissues, joints, bones and organs. As the name implies these deteriorate slowly over time. Neurodegenerative diseases are a sub-category of degenerative conditions in which the cells of the central nervous system (CNS) no longer function or die via neurodegeneration. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common neuro-degenerative condition. The other two common groups of degenerative diseases are those that affect circulatory system (e.g. coronary artery disease) and neoplastic diseases such as cancers. Degenerative diseases for the most part exist and some are related to aging. Normal bodily wear or lifestyle choices (such as exercise or eating habits) may worsen degenerative diseases, but this depends on the disease. Sometimes the main or partial cause behind such diseases is genetic. Some de-generative diseases are primarily genetic such as Huntington’s disease. Viruses, carcinogens, toxins, poisons or other chemicals can also lead to degenerative diseases. The cause may also be unknown. Some degenerative diseases can be cured, but not always. It might still be possible to alleviate the symptoms. If you have been diagnosed with any type of degenerative disorder you may be entitled to benefits and financial compensation depending on who, or what, caused the disease and the process leading to diagnosis.
