Question: What do Rheumatoid Arthritis, Type-1 Diabetes, and Chronic Cough have in common? Answer: About the same order of magnitude of adults are affected by Chronic Cough as are affected by Rheumatoid Arthritis, Type-1 Diabetes and other familiar conditions. So why doesn’t Chronic Cough have household name recognition? Why are Rheumatoid Arthritis and Type-1 Diabetes featured in public information spots, pharmaceutical and other products’ promotional campaigns, and part of doctor-patient discussions, while Chronic Cough is not?
Dr. Mandel Sher and the Chronic Cough physician, scientist, and researcher community around the world are trying to change Chronic Cough’s relatively low awareness and understanding in the medical and public communities. Dr. Sher and his colleagues have a new paradigm to explain the cause and triggers of Chronic Cough. Together, Dr. Sher and his colleagues are conducting clinical research studies for new cough drugs and presenting emerging concepts in treating Chronic Cough through frequent contributions to the medical and scientific communities’ literature and professional societies’ learning.
According to a recent study in Denmark, around 160,000 Danes or approximately 4 percent of the adult population, suffer from Chronic Cough. Dr. Morten Dahl, who has been studying Chronic Cough, was surprised that so many people have been coughing for so long.
“It’s a bit surprising that there are so many people who suffer from chronic coughing. It’s a problem that has been overlooked and not so much has been known about the illness before.”
“However, 4 percent is about the same order of magnitude as are afflicted by some of the other big diseases common in the population such as type 1-diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis.” – Dr. Morten Dahl
Dr. Dahl and Dr. Mandel Sher hear their Cough patients report similar symptoms and consequences, including: Significant disruption of relationships in personal, professional, and social life; Fatigue; Muscle Ache, and Incontinence.
Dr. Dahl observed that some people suffering with Chronic Cough don’t see a physician to have it evaluated. He noted there are many causes of Chronic Cough that can be effectively treated. His colleague, Professor Peter Lange, agrees:
“If you keep on coughing – sometimes also accompanied by other symptoms such as wheezing or coughing up phlegm – then you need to see your doctor. It’s not normal to continue to cough.” – Professor Peter Lange
