Disease Abbreviations

 

What is Disease?

Disease is a set of specific signs and symptoms that affect a living being, altering its normal state of health. The word is of Latin origin, where “ dolentia ” means “pain, suffering”.

In general, the disease is characterized as a lack of health, a state that, upon reaching an individual, causes disturbances in physical and mental functions. It can be caused by exogenous (external, environmental) or endogenous (internal, the body’s own) factors.

Different sciences are dedicated to the study of diseases, among them: pathology studies diseases in general, related to medicine and other areas; medical science studies the diseases of humans; phytopathology analyzes diseases that affect plants; Veterinary medicine studies pathological manifestations in animals.

In general, when examining a patient, the professional observes the signs and symptoms and associates them with a particular disease, requests several tests and based on the results informs a diagnosis, which will be the basis for treatment.

Depending on the context, some concepts, such as abnormality, disorder, pathology, disturbance, etc., are used synonymously with disease.

In the figurative sense, illness is an addiction or a mania, considered as an imbalance. For example: The impulse to buy shoes has already become a disease.
