Sickle cell has a lot of different complications. These make the disease itself harder. All the complications and symptoms just depends on the person and how their body chooses to react. Hand-Foot Syndrome is one complication that occurs with sickle cell. Due to the sickling of the cells blood vessels may be blocked which causes the hands and/or feet to painfully swell.
One might experience respiratory signs and symptoms caused by the blocking of air passages and lungs with thick mucus such as repeated lung infections (pneumonia or bronchitis), wheezing or shortness of breath. One might also experience digestive signs and symptoms such as those mentioned in the CRTF.INFO.’s website informational article, gastrointestinal tract problems such as congenital Meconium ileus and distal intestinal obstruction syndrome, are caused by the decrease in chlorine and water secretion into the gut. These problems can play a factor in Cystic Fibrosis patient inability to absorb the vital nutrients they need. Also included is the buildup of digestive enzymes and digestion of its own tissues in the pancreas created by the thickening of exocrine secretions that block the pancreatic ducts intestinal blockage which results in bowel movement problems like diarrhea, gas, and abdominal pain. Not only can Cystic Fibrosis affect the pancreas and gastrointestinal tract but also the liver’s secretions.
Abstract Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections, and complicates a person’s ability to breathe. People with Cystic fibrosis have troubles to breathe because a broken gene causes a thick, growth of mucus in the lungs, pancreas and other organs. The mucus blocks the air passage to the lungs, and traps bacteria leading to infections, considerable lung harm, and sooner or later, respiratory failure. In the pancreas, this mucus blocks the deliverance of digestive enzymes that allow the body to break down food and absorb vital nutrients. People with this disease used to have a life expectancy of 6 months back in 1938, but now with the advances of technology and medical treatments, life expectancy is approximately 35
Clubbing happens faster as an adult because the body is fully functioned. As a result of my essay, cystic fibrosis is a genetic condition in which the lungs and the insides of the human body become clogged with thick sticky mucus. It clogs up the airways and There are many treatments for patients with the disorder. People with the disorder can not be cured but the treatments can help. Children are diagnosed with the disorder when they are young and live with it the rest of their life.
Jasmine Nguyen 37852068 Child Health Psychology May 23, 2016 Cystic Fibrosis Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease of the secretory glands that affects the person’s ability to breathe over time as well as causing persistent lung infections. The source of cystic fibrosis is a defective gene that affects the secretory glands and causes them to create mucus that is thick and sticky which eventually builds up in organs such as the lungs, pancreas, liver, sinuses, sex organs, and intestines. When mucus enters the lungs of those with cystic fibrosis, the mucus clogs the airways of the lung and leads to bacteria getting trapped which eventually results in the person getting infections of the lung, extensive lung damage, and respiratory failure. Mucus
Be sure to rehydrate with not only water, but salts and minerals to. 4. Bloody Stool Bloody stools are a disconcerting symptom of Crohn’s disease. As the inflammation of the bowels cause ulcers, blood may mix with the stool. If the blood comes from high in the digestive process, the stool may appear black in color.
Rosacea is a chronic, cutaneous, vascular skin disorder that causes redness to the face. It may also cause some swelling, tiny pink or red pimples and the presence of broken blood vessels may appear. Rosacea usually affects the cheeks, forehead, chin and nose. The cause of Rosacea is unknown today but there are several theories that cause the redness and flare ups in people with rosacea. These factors include spicy and hot foods, caffeine, alcohol, extreme temperatures, sun exposure, exercise, emotional stress, scrubbing or massaging the face, toiletries and some cosmetics.
Name: Hemolytic uremic syndrome Overview: The hemolytic uremic syndrome is a condition characterized by destruction of red blood cells and kidney failure and often follows an infection of the digestive system caused by Escherichia coli, but can also occur for other reasons. The hemolytic uremic syndrome is a disease that involves two processes and two body systems: o destruction of red blood cells o kidney failure As regards the first aspect, it happens that in hemolytic uremic syndrome the blood within the capillaries, the smallest blood vessels in the body, begins to coagulate in an abnormal way. When red blood cells pass through the capillaries clogged, they are punched from one side and broken. (Hemo-blood + lysis-destruction). The second
Due to the malfunction in the glands that produce mucus, the lungs tend to accumulate thick mucus that eventually leads to infection, difficulty breathing and in severe cases a lung transplant or respiratory failure. This disease also effects the
Cystic fibrosis (CF), is a disease that is inherited, or passed down through genes from parents to offspring. This disease affects the secretory glands, including the glands that produce mucus and sweat. CF develops when a person inherits two faulty CF genes, one from each parent. Parents, more than likely, don 't have the disease. CF affects many body organs, but mostly the lungs, pancreas, liver, intestines, sinuses, and sex organs (What Is Cystic Fibrosis?, 2013).
It can however develop rapidly in some cases. Inadequate oxygen supply to the body cells, known as hypoxia, is part of the symptoms of Eisenmenger syndrome. The most recognizable symptom will include a bluish discoloration of the skin and mucous membranes; this is referred to as cyanosis. Patients with Eisenmenger syndrome can develop cyanosis in the lips, fingernails, and toes. Due to the inadequate oxygen to the blood supply the patient may also display high levels of red blood cells.
Vaccinations help prevent life threatening illnesses including, Measles, Mumps, and Rubella. Measles cause fever, rash, cough, runny nose, and red watery eyes. The complications associated with measles include ear infection, diarrhea, pneumonia, brain damage, and death. Mumps cause fever, headache, muscle aches, tiredness, loss of appetite, and swollen salivary glands. Complications connected to Mumps can include, swelling of the testicles or ovaries, deafness, inflammation of the brain and/or tissue covering the brain and spinal cord, and on rare occasions, death.
Many UTI are not serious but if infection reaches the kidney, serious illness and even death can occur (medicinenet). Possible signs of a urinary tract infection include, A burning sensation or pain when you urinate, Feeling like you need to urinate more often than usual, Feeling the urge to urinate but not being able to,
The cause of dermatomyositis is unknown, but it is believed to be similar to autoimmune disorders where a person’s immune system accidently attacks its own body tissue. Dermatomyositis partially affects the small blood vessels in the muscle tissue, because inflammatory cells surround the blood vessels, which eventually causes the degeneration of muscle fibers. Some of the complications caused by dermatomyositis include: difficulty to swallowing due to affected muscles in the esophagus, aspiration pneumonia where one breathes foods into their lungs because they have difficulty swallowing, breathing problems due to affected chest muscles, and also calcium deposits that can develop in the muscles, skin, and connective tissues. Dermatomyositis can also lead to the following diseases: Raynaud 's phenomenon, lupus,
A proper diagnosis is required not only to determine which disease you have, but to determine the stage it is in as well as the possible causes. Eczema is mainly caused by your immune system overacting to an irritant. This is why it is often seen in families with hereditary asthma or allergies. The open, leaking pustules also expose the skin to bacteria. Flair-ups may occur when there is contact with harsh detergents or pets and may also happen when you catch a cold or feel especially stressful.
