    I need to get other's opinions on systemic illnesses? What illnesses are considered systemic illnesses? Also, would other's consider the flu to be a systemic illness?

    Thanks for any help.

    A systemic illness is one that affects a number of body systems, or the body as a whole. The flu could be a systemic illness.

    Another good example of a systemic illness is Diabetes, as there many manifestations that can arise from it.
