Chronic sinusitis (CRS) is one of the most common chronic illnesses, with an estimated prevalence of 6-12% in the population. CRS more commonly affects allergic patients and asthmatics. Other names for CRS are chronic rhinosinusitis, allergic sinusitis or allergic rhinitis.
CRS is characterized by chronic inflammation of the nasal mucosa and is associated with sinus pressure, nasal congestion, runny nose, thick secretions and a decreased or absent sense of smell for more than 12 weeks. CRS can be subdivided into 2 major categories: presence of nasal polyps (CRSwNP) or absence of nasal polyps (CRSsNP).
A key reason for CRS health and economic burden is its multifaceted pathophysiology and the subsequent lack of consistently effective treatment. The cause of the disease is also nebulous, and many theories have been proposed. CRS is said to be multifactorial.
With such difficult, ineffective and unspecific treatment in the context of a misunderstood affliction, medicine falls short properly managing CRS with little more to offer than corticosteroids and antibiotics, both of which come at a health price and may worsen the patient’s condition. Companies are making millions of dollars selling sinus rinse bottle systems and neti pots without much added value for the patient. Then, there is invasive polyp removal surgery for CRSwNP, but then the polyps always come back.
As a CRS patient you should be expecting a safe and effective health support to bring back light and life leading you out the CRS tunnel. To bring in back your Sinulife.
The Welnx Sinulife website is an information resource on CRS and CRSwNP with disease information, what’s currently known, and useful information for patients to better understand and manage their condition.
