The main problem that the kidneys are prone to is kidney failure, also called acute renal failure. This is the condition where the kidneys lose their ability to stop working or perform their functions. The types of causes of this disorder are categorized based on when they take place, therefore there are the pre -renal, renal and the post- renal causes. The pre- renal causes are the ones that happen before the disease occurs, they include; blood-clotting issues, low blood pressure causing low blood volume (hypovolemia) in the kidney, urinary tract infections, dehydration and medication such as diuretics which cause water loss. Renal causes affect the kidney directly, they include sepsis (when the immune system is overwhelmed by infections which causes the kidney to shut down), medication which are toxic to the kidney e.g.
The levels of insulin in the body will upsurge and instead of fat being broken down or metabolized, they will be stored. There will be occurrences of the imbalance of electrolytes in the body It can also lead to immune deficiencies resulting from slower digestive functions and elimination
REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE AND STUDIES According to Carlson (2015), diabetes mellitus refers to a group of diseases that affect how the body uses blood sugar, also known as glucose. Glucose is important to the health because it is the source of energy for the cells that make up the humans' muscles and tissues. It is also the brains' main source of fuel. However, if a person has diabetes, it means that there is too much glucose in the blood, which can lead to serious health problems. Goel (2007) shared an interesting point of view regarding the causes of diabetes.
Furthermore, these ketone bodies would then be used as a source of energy because of lack of glucose. This is a natural process initiated by the body to help us survive when food intake is low. However, blood glucose level is still maintained by liver precisely from other sources such as amino acids and
Adults with diabetes have increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. Combined with reduced blood flow, neuropathy (nerve damage) in the feet increases the chance of foot ulcers, infection and eventual need for limb amputation. Diabetic retinopathy is an important cause of blindness, and occurs as a result of long-term accumulated damage to the small blood vessels in the retina. 2.6% of global blindness can be attributed to diabetes, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
The body is unable to recognize that the body has a sufficient amount of iron so the body continues to absorb iron from the food we as humans eat until it severely damages our body organs causing an imbalance in body chemistry which could ultimately lead to death if the hemochromatosis goes unchecked without any treatment. Iron is essential to the human’s survival but too much iron is proven to be deadly. Symptoms of Hemochromatosis includes having weak bone joints, fatigue, and general weakness. The Lymph nodes also swell up as the iron supply is heavily distributed in our bloodstream and our body. Iron levels are extremely high in all areas of the body except for the Macrophages.
The conditions that Enzyme depletion can cause are Protease (Digests proteins), which causes anxiety, low blood sugar, cancer, viral and bacterial infections and more. There is Amylase (Digests non-fiber Carbohydrates), which can cause Asthma, fungal infections, and liver or gall bladder disease. If Depletion Enzymes affects, Lipase (digests fat), it may cause high cholesterol, Obesity, Diabetes, and the hardening of arteries and more cardiovascular disease. Finally if Cellulase, which digests fibers, is affected, it may cause gas and bloating, food allergies and even paralysis (maybe
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. The bone disorder people can suffer from is osteoporosis (Mayo Clinic). People that have Graves' disease and then also gain these disorders on top of it because of their disease have so much to deal with. People need to stop thinking that Graves' disease isn't as important as other diseases because it affects people and their lives a fair amount. Adding on to these complications is thyroid
Sometimes, lupus affects the patients’ kidneys and makes them become unable to function properly. This condition is called lupus nephritis. Lupus nephritis is the most serious type of lupus because the kidneys have significant functions to help control blood pressure and filter wastes and toxins from the blood. Moreover, it has dangerous symptoms which are high blood pressure, increased urination at night, and blood in the urine. It is stated by Webmed that, “up to 60% of lupus patients will develop lupus nephritis.
Functional Health Assessment Student’s Name Institution Functional Health Assessment Question One From the functional health assessment, Jane who is the client is exposed to various health risks although she is undergoing treatment. First, Jane is already exposed to the risk of diabetes type 2. She is suffering from the sickness which from the assessment, it is claimed that the condition was inherited. To affirm the inheritance conclusion, it is reported that her husband died of the same condition. Secondly, malnutrition is another health risk noted from the functional health assessment.

Hewan Zerihun NR 222 Professor Emily Namesny Chamberlin school of nursing 11/29/15 Health Promotion In Older Adults With type two diabetes Health Promotion In older Adults With Type Two Diabetes Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes and is more common in older adults ages 65 and older. In type 2 diabetes the body does not use insulin properly. When insulin is not used properly by the body it leads to insulin resistance. Glucose builds up in the blood instead of going into cells as a result cells will starve for energy. If left untreated diabetes affects many organs of the body including the eyes, the kidneys, nerves and the heart.
The book is basically Mr. O’Connell’s recollection of being diagnosed pre-diabetic, his journey to find more information on treatment and how effective it is, and Mr. O’Connell’s father passing away from not taking care of his diabetes. Before getting into the takeaways from the book we need some definitions and to shed some perspective on how dire the diabetes problem is. So, what is diabetes? The short answer is it’s when your blood glucose or sugar is too high. How it works is when you eat food your body breaks it down into sugars that enter your bloodstream to be distributed throughout your body for energy, when this happens your pancreas releases a hormone called insulin to transport those sugars to the
