San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) July 28, 2014
To commemorate World Hepatitis Day which occurs every July 28, the Editorial Board of Living with a Disability magazine has published a new article that focuses on disabling digestive disorders that include hepatitis, gastrointestinal hemorrhage, inflammatory bowel disease, short bowel syndrome and malnutrition.
The important new article highlights that, in the context of receiving a Social Security Disability award, those afflicted with hepatitis and other disabling conditions related to the digestive system must obtain -- and be prepared to present – complete and accurate medical records that support their diagnosis, and any treatment that they have previously, are currently, or are scheduled to receive in the future.
“The Social Security Administration depends on medical evidence to render a decision,” commented Living with a Disability magazine’s associate publisher Joshua C. Eyestone. “Failure to provide this documentation in a timely manner could result in a delayed or denied claim, which adds even further hardship to those who are already afflicted with a serious and in some cases potentially life-threatening disease.”
Added Mr. Eyestone: “As a result, we strongly urge all SSD-eligible applicants to get the facts and guidance they need from an experienced and proven social security disability attorney before they apply – not after. It’s the simplest and best way for them to worry less about whether their application will be approved, and focus more on convalescing and living their life to the fullest.”
As defined by the World Health Organization, hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver. The condition can be self-limiting or can progress to fibrosis (scarring), cirrhosis or liver cancer. Hepatitis viruses are the most common cause of hepatitis in the world but other infections, toxic substances (e.g. alcohol, certain drugs), and autoimmune diseases can also cause hepatitis.
