Many patients with chronic sinusitis have allergies which may partially complicate sinusitis. Allergies cause swelling and blockage the tiny holes which allow drainage of mucus from the sinuses. In addition, the allergies may cause swelling inside the sinuses and inside the nose. It is critical that patients with allergies control their environment to control their sinusitis. Because so many patients with sinusitis have allergies, we have included a section on allergies later this website as well.
Introduction Thrombocytosis is when you have too many platelets (thrombocytes) in your blood. Platelets are parts of blood that stick together and form a clot (thrombus) to help your body stop bleeding. Some conditions that cause inflammation, such as cancer, may trigger your body to make more platelets than normal. There are two types of thrombocytosis. Primary or essential thrombocytosis happens when abnormal cells in the bone marrow make too many platelets.
Refsum disease is cause by a dysfunction in the metabolism of lipids that leads to high concentrations of phytanic acid in tissues and blood plasma. Main symptoms are irregularities in the retina of the eye, bone and skin changes, speech patterns, abnormal gait, and muscle movements associated with cerebellar ataxia. Treatment involves dietary restrictions and blood transfusions aimed at halting the progression of the disease and resolving symptoms. Friedreich ataxia is the most common form of hereditary ataxia, affecting 1 out of 50,000 people, and it is a progressive disorder affecting the arms and legs, progressive weakness, loss of deep tendon reflexes, and sensory
There are many causes of cirrhosis including chemicals (such as alcohol, fat, and certain medications), viruses toxic metals (such as iron and copper that accumulate in the liver as a result of genetic diseases). Symptoms • Yellowing of the skin (jaundice) due to the accumulation of bilirubin in the blood • Fatigue • Weakness • Loss of appetite • Itching • Easy bruising from decreased production of blood clotting factors by the diseased liver Causes • Alcohol • Viral Hepatitis B & c Effects • If the diagnosis of liver cirrhosis
Lupus Nephritis is diagnosed to a patient in which Lupus largely affects the kidneys. This could be physically visible in the form of blood in the urine as an example, and other symptoms related to that of other kidney diseases. Lupus Nephritis has six stages: Class I – Class VI. The higher the class the more severe the implications of the disease are. Class I is the minimal mesangial lupus nephritis and for patients who are classified under this usually are in remission.
A common symptom of Clostridium difficile is diarrhea (Aberra & Curry, 2017). It can affect patients in hospitals drastically due to the inability of their bodies absorbing nutrients needed to help them. Due to the diarrhea, patients also can become dehydrated, have mild abdominal pain, anorexia, and general malaise. Testing for possible C. difficile infections can include polymerase chain reaction tests,
Early stage renal failure is a final common path way for a number of disease processes and associated with significant morbidity and mortality. In modern medicine approach kidney treatment like dialysis and kidney transplant is not rational approach but its temporary phase, not complete cure end stage renal failure or CRF (Chronic renal failure is the progressive loss of kidney function. The kidneys attempt to compensate for renal damage by excessive straining of the blood within the remaining functional filtering units that consist of a glomerulus and corresponding tubule over time, hyper filtration causes further loss of function) In homeopathy medicine developed immunizations in damage nephrons in kidney, so kidney function is not damaged
Mercuric ions biomethylation could retain in blood and continuously deposit in some organs like kidneys, liver or brain and consequently cause chronic diseases ended with death [4, 5]. That is why, it is very necessary to continuously develop novel techniques for fast detection and extraction of mercury from aqueous media. Different extraction techniques including solvent extraction [6-8], ion exchangers [9-11], precipitation [12, 13], adsorption [14, 15] and membrane separation [16, 17] have been successfully utilized to minimize the mercuric ion concentrations in aqueous media. However, the absence of selectivity considered a fatal disadvantage restricts the application of these techniques, particularly in specific metal ions extractions . Nowadays, Ion-imprinting technique considered one of the most outstanding strategies that provide a synthetic path for manufacturing smart polymeric materials, which are able
Unhealthy habits that can take a toll on your kidneys Your internal organs like kidney, heart, brain, liver, and gall bladder form an important part of your body system. Any damage caused to them is a huge impact and can hamper your normal life. Although these organs are sturdy and they continue to work normally even after changing conditions, still some of our habits might be conitnuously damaging these organs like a slow poison. Kidneys is one of the vital organs in our body that is concerned with removal of wastage from our body. That is a very important job else our blood will be impure and eventually we will fall prey to several other disorders.
In atherosclerosis, fatty material and cholesterol are deposited inside the lumen of medium and large sized blood vessels (arteries). These deposits forms a plague cause the inner surface of the vessels to become narrow, making it harder for blood to flow through. Eventually the plague can rapture, triggering in the formation of a blood clot, if the blood clot develops in coronary artery, it can cause a heart attack, if it develops in the brain, and it can cause a stroke. Risk factors associated with atherosclerosis’ are as follows, tobacco use ,physical inactivity ,unhealthy diet ( rich in salt, fat ,and calories)harmful use of alcohol ,and metabolic risk factors hypertension raised blood sugar (diabetes) raised blood lipids.
