If a cell is being exposed to toxins, the plasma membrane may become unselectively permeable which will allow anything to enter and leave the cell body. Without its selectively permeably cell membrane, the cell will be exposed to any harmful outside source and this will bring injury or death to the cell body. Toxins such as ethanol, lead and mercury can all cause damage to cells in this way. Ethanol, for example, is a commonly abused drug which negatively effects tissues and leads to an insufficient amount of nutrition. It is important to look at the causes of cell injury because this shows us how and why people end up with certain diseases.
Causes of Diabetes Diabetes is a group of diseases that is marked by high levels of glucose, or sugar, in the blood. The increased amount sugar in the blood is a result of either defects in the production of insulin or the way in which insulin is used by the body. Complications from diabetes can result in further medical conditions that make it even more difficult to treat the diabetes, such as kidney failure, peripheral vascular disease or heart disease. Type 1 diabetes is the result of a lack of insulin production because of the destruction of beta cells in the pancreas. These beta cells are responsible for the production of insulin that regulates blood glucose.
Survivors that have HI diseases will have thick plate of dry skin or over their body, and thick plates of dry skin. Physical development may be delayed by the enormous calorie needs their skin function demands, but they’re mental and intellectual developments are expected to be normal (Aama). HI individuals who are born will have less than 50% chance of surviving. Survivors will have a normal life expectancy but may develop severe skin disease with eye complications related to dry skins that forcefully cause the eyelid to turn outward away from the eyeballs, delayed developmental milestones, motor and social
This places the spine in a vulnerable state because it becomes one bone, which causes it to lose its range of motion as well as putting it at risk for spinal fractures. This not only limits mobility but reduces the affected person 's quality of life. These changes may be mild or severe, and may lead to a stooped-over posture. Early diagnosis and treatment helps control pain and stiffness and may reduce or prevent significant deformity. AS can range from mild to progressively debilitating and from medically controlled to refractory forms.
Including inhibiting bone development in adolescents. This can be due to a premature closure of the epiphyseal plate in the long bones of the user (Kersey et al. 2012). Furthermore, recent research has shown that chronic steroid use can be harmful to kidney function. Anabolic-androgenic steroids can cause a condition called proteinuria, in which abnormally high levels of protein are excreted in the urine.
Preventing Osteoporosis, Adult Osteoporosis is a condition that causes the bones to get weaker. With osteoporosis, the bones become thinner, and the normal spaces in bone tissue become larger. This can make the bones weak and cause them to break more easily. People who have osteoporosis are more likely to break their wrist, spine, or hip. Even a minor accident or injury can be enough to break weak bones.
Malnutrition is detrimental to the health and development of children. Malnourished children can experience death, development delay and diseases. They may undergo growth, immune and cognitive implications. The child’s bones can soften, which makes them weak, easier to break and they can stop growing. It lowers their immune system, which makes them prone to
They include: Lewy body dementia which is the result of the formation of protein substances called Lewy bodies in the nerve cells. As the disease progresses, its symptoms include the following: sleep-related difficulties, behavioral, cognitive and physical dysfunctions. Lewy body dementia can be subdivided into two types: 1) Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) which is hard to diagnose at the early stage as it has no obvious symptoms. As it progresses, the substantia nigra neurons which produce dopamine become damaged or die which causes deterioration of the outer cortex of the brain. Many of the remaining neurons contain Lewy bodies.
Dermatomyositis is an uncommon inflammatory muscular disease, which involves the degeneration of collagen, discoloration and swelling of the skin and underlying muscle. Dermatomyositis is known by it’s distinctive skin rash and muscle weakness. Dermatomyositis affects children and adults, but it usually affects children between the ages of five and fifteen, and it occurs in adults in their late forties through sixties. Dermatomyositis is also more commonly found in females than males. 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.
Due to this cell death, the brain undergoes significant shrinkage. The absence of certain chemicals that transmit signals (neurotransmitters) in the brain, such as choline, can also cause this disease . Because of this buildup, this disease gets
