Paget Disease of Bone Paget disease is a condition that makes the bones grow faster than normal. This leads to bones that are larger and weaker than normal. Healthy bones rebuild themselves by destroying old bone and replacing it with new bone tissue. This process usually slows down as a person gets older.
About one in every 33 babies in the United States is born with a birth defect. A birth defect, according to Kids Health, part of the Nemours Foundation’s Center for Children’s Health Media, is defined as abnormalities of structure, function, or body metabolism that are present at birth. It’s said that birth defects are one of the leading causes of infant death in the first year of life. Birth defects can range from mild to severe. MedlinePlus, The National Institute of Health’s website says that babies with birth defects may need to have surgery or other medical treatments. With as many birth defects there are in the world, many are still left unknown as to why they are still occurring. Birth defects can develop through substance abuse, infections in
The different types of treatments differ from the symptoms the individual experiences, if any. If the individual is diagnosed with the disorder the doctor would recommend a type of counselling or extra learning alterative to catch up on learning. There is no medication that will help this disorder. The best way to handle the situation is providing physical therapy to help strengthen the weak muscles. Another way to help is through providing extra assistance in schooling.
There is no known cure for SLE, the aim is to reduce symptoms. Treatment can differ depending on how severe the symptoms are and which part of the body is being affected. Medication that can be provided are Anti-inflammatory medication for joint pain and stiffness, Corticosteroids, to reduce the immune responses, antimalarial drugs for skin and joint problems and steroid medication. Diet and exercise should be taken into to consideration, avoiding certain foods and minimizing stress could decrease the likely hood of triggering symptoms. SLE is one of the more fatal forms of rheumatic diseases that affects women more than men.
Functional medicine Making use if blood/stool/saliva tests we can detect any form of instability in the body's biochemistry. Ultrasound therapy Ultrasound therapy is completely free from pain and at most, you may feel a little warmth. Meet your doctor.
Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva is one of the rarest and most disabling disease known to mankind. The disease progression is caused when connective tissue such as; muscle, tendons, or ligaments are slowly replaced by bone. Eventually, the additional bone formation outside the skeleton will constrict movement and imprison the body. The literature on fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva is sparse, which could account for the extremely high rate of misdiagnoses of the disorder.
Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva which is sometimes referred to FOP is a very rare genetic disorder in which bones grow uncontrollably to the point of causing disability (Fibrous Dysplasia). As one of the rarest and most disabling diseases, FOP causes bone to form in and over muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other connective tissues (What is FOP). Bridges of this extra bone develops across joints which causes immobility (What is FOP). These bridges also create a second skeleton that imprisons the body in bone.
The treatments given are there to: control pain, improve joint function, maintain normal body weight and have a healthy life style. Treatments which may be recommended could be: o Physiotherapy o Joint replacement o Rest, ice, compression, elevate (RICE) o Pain relief o Splinting and casting Tendonitis Tendonitis is an injury which causes inflammation to the tendon.
Even when there are many different diseases that bones within skeletons can show, rickets can be one of the easiest diseases to figure out. Children with rickets will not only show in life that a baby's soft spot is slow to close and bowed legs, but in death the skeletons have flared metaphysis, spinal and pelvic deformity, and bending deformation. The article relates to textbook readings because the textbook has made it known that rickets was not known prior to the medival times. Although, there is not much that is known from previous literature that has been read. There has been a case that is known of in personal life that could be caused from rickets.
There are two types of calcium deficiency. Dietary calcium deficiency is caused by inadequate calcium intake, which can lead to depleted calcium stores in the bones, thinning and weakening of the bones, osteopenia and osteoporosis. Hypocalcemia is a low level of calcium in the blood that can occur from taking medications, medical treatments or diseases, such as renal failure or rickets. Many published studies show that low calcium intake throughout life is associated with low bone mass and high fracture rates, in addition to hypertension and cardiac arrhythmias. Other associate signs and symptoms include muscle spasms, tingling,
There are more than thirty inherited muscular dystrophy that causes the muscles to wither, and weaken. Even though there are over thirty different types, Duchenne muscular dystrophy is the most severe form of muscular dystrophy. Around three years of age is when symptoms begin to show, and with continuous muscle impairment the children that have Duchenne muscular dystrophy are normally wheelchair bound in their early teens. Following that; when the child reaches their mid to late twenties they suffer from cardiac/respiratory failure leading to death. Duchenne muscular dystrophy is a form of muscular dystrophy that only affects boys.
Case Study Unit 1: Birth Defects Birth defects are a major issue in the United States. This problem can be prevented with a good screening and implemented good teaching methods to the women with reproductive age. There are many condition that may play major roles in the cause of the babies who born with certain type of deformities. One of the biggest problem that may contribute with these birth defects is a lack of nutrients based one folic acid.
