Summary Ischemic colitis is damage to the large intestine due to reduced blood flow (ischemia) to the colon. Some of the symptoms of this condition include abdominal pain or tenderness, bloody stools, and an urgent need to have a bowel movement. Diagnosis usually includes a procedure to examine the inside of the colon using a scope passed through the rectum
People who have Graves' disease can end up suffering from pregnancy issues, heart disorders, and brittle bones. According to the Mayo Clinic, some pregnancy issues that people with Graves' disease can suffer from are miscarriage, preterm birth, fetal thyroid dysfunction, poor fetal growth, maternal heart failure, and preeclampsia. When you have hyperthyroidism but you want a child you have to put all of these factors in to place. Thinking of all the disorders your baby could possibly have because of your disease is terrifying. The heart disorders people can suffer from are heart rhythm disorders, changes in the structure and function of the heart muscles, and congestive heart failure, which is the inability of the heart to pump enough blood to the body.
CYSTIC FIBROSIS INTRODUCTION Cystic fibrosis, also known as mucoviscodosis, muco meaning the mucus that builds up in the airways and blocks up the passageways. It is an autosomal recessive disorder and it can be life threatening if tests are not done at birth, especially the screening tests on new-born babies ‘’’screening tests” which are laboratory tests that help to identify infants with high risk of getting the disease or being aware of the symptoms. It is a hereditary disease that is passed on to the children by genes. Usually the parents of the child are the carriers, they both have a recessive allele for this disease and when they mate 25% chances of the first filial generation will have this disease. Cystic fibrosis attacks the cells that produce mucus, sweat, and digestive juices.
Cystic Fibrosis Could you Imagine what it would be like if you had a disorder that clogged and blocked the passageways in your body? Well there is a disease that does this very same thing, and it’s called Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease that causes your body to produce a thick and sticky mucus. No, the disease isn’t the mucus being produced, it’s the mucus being thick and sticky. This mucus is supposed to be thin and watery, so it can act like a lubricant and help protect your bodies organs and passageways.
When this gene has been mutated, it is unable to perform effectively, leaving exocrine based organs unprotected. (Human Genome Cystic Fibrosis) The symptoms of cystic fibrosis can vary from case to case, but the most common symptoms include male infertility, persistent coughing, salty-tasting skin, frequent lung infections such as penuomonia and bronchitis, shortness of breath, wheezing, weight-loss, and difficult bowel movements. Often times the acronym, CF, to represent cystic fibrosis. People with cystic fibrosis make it a very big priority to have minimal contact with
Specific Characteristics : Crohn’s most commonly affects the end of the small bowel and the beginning of the colon, but it may affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract, from the mouth to the anus. Crohn’s disease can also affect the entire thickness of the bowel wall. The inflammation of the intestine can skip,leaving normal areas in the bowel between patches of diseased intestine. Causes: The cause of Crohn 's disease is unknown. However, it is likely due to an abnormal response of the immune system.
What is Multiple Sclerosis: Multiple Sclerosis is primarily a T-cell mediated immune inflammatory disease that disrupts the regular functions of our central nervous system. Our central nervous system, the brain and the spine, are responsible for many of our voluntary and involuntary movements. However, in patients with Multiple Sclerosis, the immune system attacks the myelin sheaths that protect the nerves of the CNS. After repeated attacks, the myelin sheath will fall apart, and the immune cells will continue to attack the nerves themselves, which can be irreversibly damaged. Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis include fatigue, numbness, weakness, vision problems, depression, and walking difficulties.
Untreated AD can lead to a stroke, heart attack, or seizure. What are the causes? This condition is caused by an overactive autonomic nervous system. Any injury, irritation, or infection below the level of your spinal cord injury may then trigger AD. Triggers include: Tight shoes or tight clothing Cuts or bruises Ingrown toenail Burns Skin pressure ulcers Appendicitis Constipation Full bladder Kidney stones Gall stones Full stomach Urinary tract infection
One of the disorders associated with it is a cervical radicular syndrome. To treat such medical problems, the physicians are recommending and performing surgeries on patients is one of the main techniques used (Arts et al., 2010). However, surgery has some outcomes that could be serious and the physicians and patients should discuss all of them before a choice is made. Some of these outcomes include chances of a Neck Disability Index, pain in the neck as well as the arm, complications, costs after charges, perceived recovery, and anxiety. Some of the surgical techniques that could be used include anterior discectomy with interbody fusion, anterior discectomy with disc prosthesis and anterior discectomy only (Arts et al., 2010).
Malnutrition can also cause surgical site infection. The T-lymphocyte response has been associated with protein malnutrition, which is usually go along a deficiency of vitamins and other micronutrients in the body. The immune system is built of numerous types of white blood cells that have different functions in the body 's defense, with the lack of nutrients the immune system won’t work properly. Diabetes and slow healing wounds. High levels of blood glucose caused by diabetes can, over time, affect the nerves and lead to poor blood circulation, making it hard for blood needed for skin repair to reach areas of the body affected by sores or wounds.
Cystic fibrosis affects many parts of a person’s life; there are many symptoms, treatments, and social effects of this disease. Cystic fibrosis mainly affects the respiratory system. The first sign of CF is when parents notice that their baby’s skin tastes salty when kissed. The other symptoms begin later. The main symptom of CF is the mucus that builds up in the airways.
Sickle cell anemia is a genetic disorder it is also known as sickle cell disease. A genetic disorder is something that is passed down from parent to child. This is a disease of the hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is a red protein responsible for transporting oxygen in the blood of vertebrates. Sickle cell anemia causes your red blood cells to stiffen, although your red blood cell are supposed to be flexible.
