Why are there no symptoms between chronic and acute chagas disease?


I make a report about the disease, and I still couldn't find an answer why there are no symptoms occurring between the chronic and the acute phase, though the parasite is still in the body. Also it would be awesome if somebody knows if there is something which is triggering the illness after a couple decades so that it becomes chronic and symptoms occur.

Acute merely means it was newly diagnosed. Some diseases are considered chronic if they continue to wrsen, or you have the symptoms longer than usual.  (+ info)

The common cold is considered an acute disease. What is the treatment for the disease?


Are there different approaches to treatment for the elderly or infants? Why, or why not?
----------

There is no treatment for the disease. Period. Not for the elderly. Not for infants.

You can treat individual symptoms, if you want. But that doesn't treat the disease, the virus, or make it go away any faster. Treating the symptoms doesn't make the disease go away at all. Only time and your own body can do that.  (+ info)

I am not quite clear sure how to distungish an acute disease and what is a chronic disease ...i know that acute diseases are short term and chronic disease are long term ..simply...thank you in advance
----------

Acute conditions are severe and sudden in onset. A chronic condition is a long developing condition where symptoms may worsen over time. BPHD is a chronic condition. If the enlargement causes the man to be unable to void urine, he can develop acute urinary retention as a result. The BPHD may not need treatment, but the urinary retention will. The man will still have BPHD, though, unless you remove the prostate- even if you do successfully treat the retention problem. Asthma is a chronic condition, the asthma attack is an acute problem. Hope this clears it for you.  (+ info)
