The more agonizing symptoms include kidney disease, blood disorders, and the malfunctioning of the nervous system due to the attacking of nerve cells and structures. Lupus can be caused by infections, genetics, or overexposure to UV light or chemical factors. The available treatments for lupus symptoms include topical creams for rashes that appear on the skin. There are also steroid shots that can be taken (however, there is a possibility of having physical side effects due to these) and antimalarial and immunosuppressive drugs can be taken to ease the other symptoms. Unfortunately, lupus is an aggressive, chronic disease that has no cure.
Alcohol consumption poses medical dangers and is possible to lead to cancer for the drinker. According to niaaa.nih.gov, alcohol affects the brain, heart, liver, and the pancreas; it also can cause cancer and weaken the immune system. Alcohol, when abused, not only has many different
The Behavioural Perspective believes that all behaviour is learn through environment through classical and operant conditioning. TP has also been unemployed from work for 8 years after taking a redundancy package from his job in the bank. He also dropped out of college 2 years into it. The Behaviourist approach might contribute this to the fact that he was never rewarded for the work he did. They believe that learning can occur through rewards and punishment, and seeing as TP has no one there to reward or punish him in his adolescence life, maybe this can contribute to why he seems to have took the easy way out in his job and
Kidney size decreases, blood flow to the kidneys are effected and decreased the ability for the kidney to adsorb and secrete toxin for the circulatory system can be problematic, with the kidney not making enough concentration of urine this may increase the chances of the patient becoming dehydrated (Seeley, Stephens and Tate 2002).Mr Brown had a series of three major pathophysiological events that contributed to his admission to intensive care unit. Firstly as stated Mr Brown had huge amount of opioids for his back pain, and
This muscle injury can occur due to excessive overworking of the muscles or from direct trauma. When the sarcolemma is disrupted, a release of intracellular muscle components such as creatinine kinase, muscle enzymes, and myoglobin occurs. Direct trauma combined with various other risk factors including alcoholism, muscle exertion, infections, hyperthermia, diabetes, status asthmaticus, fasting, and certain drugs can result in the development of rhabdomyolysis. The symptoms of rhabdomyolysis are often subtle and can include muscle pain (especially in the lower back or calves), fever, fatigue, vomiting, nausea, confusion, anuria, and generalized weakness. Dark reddish brown urine is also often noted in people with this condition as a result of
This disease could lead to hearing loss, brain damage, and even death. Hepatitis A and B are serious liver diseases which can cause fever, nausea or vomiting, jaundice, abdominal pain, or joint pain. Measles can cause high fevers, coughing, runny nose, red eyes, and rashes. Getting vaccinations to prevent these diseases and other communicable diseases is an important thing to do if you want to avoid sickness or other severe health

There are many types of cancers. Certain types of cancer can affect your oxygen level, lungs, digestive system and your bone marrow which affect the white blood cells and red blood cells. This causes people to have problems which can lead to death because of no oxygen intake and being less resistant to infections, which can cause greater
As time passed, I seemed caught in a rigid routine. When I woke, my crazies made it hard to shower. During the day, I worked as an accountant for two small businesses in town. After work I came home, got high, and sat alone in my house. At night I watched Johnny Carson, and on the weekends, I visited my Aunt Claudia.
What is the reason? Malignant anemia Malignant anemia is caused by autoimmune diseases; a person 's own immune system attacks most of the body, such as bacteria or viruses. The immune system of patients with pernicious anemia produces antibodies that attack the endometrium, destroying cells that produce intrinsic factors. The intrinsic factor is the secretion of gastric mucosal material (gastric lining), which is essential for the absorption of vitamin B12 in the intestine. If the internal factors are destroyed, vitamin B12 can not be properly
Wilson’s disease (or hepatolenticular degeneration) is a rare genetic disorder that causes excess amounts of copper to build up in the body, thus creating copper deposits which ultimately inhibit the body’s ability to function properly. It is an extraordinarily fatal condition among people who are not diagnosed and treated, as the copper buildup commences immediately after birth. Although most humans contain more copper in their bodies than is needed, it is usually eliminated through urine or bile, the dark yellow/brown fluid which is produced by the liver in humans. When bile is excreted from the liver, it is dispatched to the duodenum, a section in the small intestine which is the site of chemical digestion in humans. From there, the copper is broken down and sent to the jejunum to be absorbed by the body for use in various tasks such as the development of healthy nerves, bones, collagen (a protein essential for tissue support, development, and elasticity), and melanin (a pigment that gives color to human skin, hair, and eyes).
However, it is likely due to an abnormal response of the immune system. Food or bacteria in the intestines, or even the lining of the bowel may cause the uncontrolled inflammation associated with Crohn 's disease. Signs and Symptoms: The symptoms of Crohn 's disease depend on where the disease occurs in the bowel and its severity. These are some symptom examples Chronic diarrhea, often bloody and containing mucus or pus Weight loss Fever Abdominal pain and tenderness Feeling of a mass or fullness in the abdomen Rectal bleeding
