The truth is: It’s both. As a lipid, a substance with an oily or waxy nature, cholesterol is a vital element in cell membranes, a main component in hormones, a protective coating for nervous tissues, and allows certain biological acids to digest and process foods. However, anything taken in excess can produce dangerous effects. This same chemical that is essential for the proper function of the body can also cause of some extremely serious medical conditions. An excess of cholesterol has been linked in many cases to leading to heart attack, stroke, or atherosclerosis (fat deposits on the inner walls of arteries).
This method is crucial when rapid onset is essential but it may cause embolism or anaphylactic reactions. Intramuscular is when the drug is injected into a muscle usually a deltoid or gluteal muscle. Large amounts of the drug can be placed in the muscle but absorption can vary based on the vascularity and fat deposition around the muscle. Drugs can be injected intraperitoneal (drug delivered to the peritoneal cavity) but can be dangerous because of the chance of puncturing an organ. Drugs can be delivered directly under the skin (subcutaneously).
Cholesterol is essential for healthy cells, but if there is too much in the blood it can lead to CAD. Cholesterol is carried in the blood stream by molecules called lipoproteins. Cholesterol is made from eating fatty foods, excess alcohol and caffeine etc. Which means that the more of these you eat the more likely you are to suffer from CAD 3) Carbon monoxide, nicotine, and other substances in tobacco smoke can promote atherosclerosis and trigger symptoms of coronary artery disease. Smoking: * Causes the platelets in your blood to clump together easily by making your blood cells more "sticky" and more likely to form clots.
It has widespread connections with the rest of the forebrain and the midbrain. Partly through nerves and partly through hypothalamic hormones, the hypothalamus conveys messages to the pituitary gland, altering its release of hormones (Kalat, 2003). According to “American Accreditation Health Commission,” The hypothalamus is responsible for certain metabolic processes and other activities of the autonomic nervous system. It synthesizes and secretes certain neurohormones, often called hypothalamic-releasing hormones, and these in turn stimulate or inhibit the secretion of pituitary hormones. The hypothalamus controls body temperature, hunger, thirst, fatigue, sleep, and circadian cycle.
Hydrocephalus is a condition in which there is an abnormal accumulation of Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the ventricles and cavities of the brain. This usually results in increased intracranial pressure. Increased intracranial pressure might result in the progressive enlargement of the head (a characteristic feature of this disease), seizures, mental disability, tunnel vision and even death. Ventricular system CSF is produced by the choroid plexus, which is located within the ventricular system at a rate of about 0.25 mL/min. CSF capacity of the lateral and third ventricles in a healthy person is 20 mL.
pre-eclampsia The causes of pre-eclampsia: is it a multifactorial disease or is there one main cause? Abstract This essay discusses the clinical signs and symptoms of pre-eclampsia, and the factors (risk factors and biological molecules) that lead to the aetiology of the disease. The spiral arteries of pre-eclamptic women have high resistance and low flow. This is due to endothelial dysfunction which is caused by the products of oxidative stress, shed particles from membranes, activated neutrophils and plasma lipids. It is also a result of the action of molecules such as vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), placental growth factor (PlGF), soluble endoglin (sEng), placental protein 13 (PP13), P Selectin, angiotensin receptor 1 auto antibodies (AT1-AA) and neurokinin B.
Surprisingly there is more inborn errors metabolism, intracranial hemorrhage, maternal drug use, finally there is infection. Potential causes of epilepsy for infants and children are fever which are febrile seizures. Brian tumors rarely cause this effect, infections. Potential causes of epilepsy for children and adults, congenital condition, for example down's syndrome, angelman's syndrome, tuberous sclerosis, and neurofibromatosis, genetic factors, progressive brain disease this one is rare, finally there is head trauma. Potential causes of epilepsy for elderly, stroke, alzheimer's disease,
In some cases gallstones may be removed to relieve blockage of the pancreatic duct. In the most severe cases, surgery is needed to remove dead or infected pancreatic tissue. Complications from acute pancreatitis include acute kidney failure, ARDS, ascites, Cysts or abscesses in the pancreas, and heart failure. Repeat episodes can lead to chronic pancreatitis.

Cushing’s disease Cushing syndrome occurs when your body is exposed to high levels of the hormone cortisol for a long time, the condition also occur when your body makes too much cortisol. Cushing syndrome can result in high blood pressure, bone loss, and on occasion, diabetes. Some of the symptoms involved with Cushing syndrome are weight gain, pink or purple stretch marks on the skin, thinning, and fragile skin that bruises easily, slow healing of cuts, acne, fatigue, and a whole lot of other symptoms. The gland Cushing’s disease is associated with is the pituitary gland, a pituitary gland tumor (pituitary adenoma) a noncancerous benign tumor of the pituitary gland, located at the base of the brain, secretes an excess amount of ACTH, which
Furthermore an abnormal rapid heart rate is another sign for asthma attack. Nevertheless it is our own immune system, which causes those symptoms by an acute inflammatory response to the triggers. During an asthma attack, the smooth muscle in the walls of the bronchi, bronchioles
