Type 1 diabetes is the first major form of the disease. It is an autoimmune disease wherein the body's own immune system attacks and destroys the cells within the pancreas that produce insulin, rendering the affected person unable to produce insulin naturally. This type of diabetes was formerly known as Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus, which is known to be an inaccurate
Diabetes Diabetes is a chronic disease where the blood in the body contains a high sugar level. This disease is caused by the body's inability to use insulin properly, or the inability to manufacture insulin altogether. It can be controlled by diet, exercise, pills and insulin injections. There are three main types of diabetes--Type I, Type II, and gestational diabetes. While scientists do not know what causes diabetes, they do know that it is caused from a variety of factors that can vary from person to person.
A person with polycystic kidney disease will experience symptoms as a result of the damage caused by cysts (fluid-filled sacs) that develop in the kidneys. The signs and symptoms of polycystic kidney disease will vary based on the type of the condition a person has. For example, symptoms of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease include headaches and pain in the back and the sides. Polycystic kidney disease symptoms that may occur in someone with acquired cystic kidney disease include urinary tract infections and
Multiple sclerosis Multiple sclerosis This booklet includes- The symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis The impact of Multiple Sclerosis The signs of Multiple Sclerosis What is multiple Sclerosis? Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that affects the brain and the spine, eventually it ends in not being able to control muscles, loss of vision, not being able to balance, and numbness. When you suffer from multiple sclerosis the brain and spine are damaged by the immune system, this is known as an autoimmune disease. The symptoms- The symptoms affect every person differently, they vary on how much damage has been done to the nerves. Some symptoms include: -visual Problems: the visual problems are one of the first to occur normally.
C) It is a fatal disorder unless renal replacement therapy is received. CORRECT CKD is fatal unless some form of renal replacement therapy (dialysis or organ transplant) is done, whereas acute renal failure has a good prognosis for the return of kidney function if appropriate supportive care is provided during the acute period. D) There are frequent exacerbations since half of all nephrons are damaged. INCORRECT Half of all nephrons are often damaged in acute renal failure. In CKD, about 90% of nephrons are typically involved.
Haemophilia Albinism Task 2 (B) Sickle cell anaemia Anaemia Anaemia is a lack of blood cells which is a common symptom of sickle cell anaemia. The abnormal cells have shorter life-span and are not replaced quickly enough. Symptoms include Fatigue which is feeling tired all the time and having a lack
1. UNDERSTAND THE NEUROLOGY OF DEMENTIA 1.1 Describe a range of causes of dementia syndrome Dementia syndrome is caused by damage to the brain cells; this damage interferes with the ability of brain cells to communicate each other. The most common causes of dementia are called neurodegenerative diseases, and include Alzheimer’s disease, frontotemporal dementia, and dementia with Lewy bodies. When brain cells can no longer communicate normally, thinking, behaviour and feelings can be affected. Dementia is an umbrella term for number of diseases; "over 130 are known today" that affect the memory, behaviour, and motor skills.
Polycystic kidney disease What is polycystic kidney disease? Polycystic kidney disease is a disorder that affects the kidneys and other organs. Clusters of fluid-filled sacs, called cysts, develop in the kidneys and interfere with their ability to filter waste products from the blood. The growth of cysts causes the kidneys to become enlarged and can lead to kidney failure. Cysts may also develop in other organs, particularly the liver.
This is the most uncommon form of diabetes affecting only a very little of the population of the United States. But this type of diabetes is becoming more alarming every year in the United States because according to a study of the international journal of health Geographic’s 13,000 children are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and more than 1 million American kids and adults deal with the disease every day. Very little is known about the causes of this type of diabetes. What is known is that the pancreas can’t make or can’t respond to insulin properly. Due to the destruction of the beta cells in the pancreas, those are the main cells that process insulin through the
