The symptoms can be the same as type 1 3 .The causes of : * Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition. Your immune system (the body's natural defence against infection and illness) mistakes the cells in your pancreas as harmful and attacks them, destroying them completely or damaging them enough to stop them producing insulin.It's not known exactly what triggers the immune system to do this * In type 2 there are several reasons why the pancreas doesn't produce enough insulin.Four of the main risk factors for developing type are: * age – being over the age of 40 (over 25 for South Asian people) * genetics – having a close relative with the condition (parent, brother or sister) * Weight – being overweight or obese * ethnicity – being of South Asian, Chinese, African-Caribbean or black African origin (even if you were born in the UK) 4. Common symptoms of t diabetes include: * Excessive thirst * Increased urination (sometimes as often as every hour) * Unexpected weight loss * Fatigue or tiredness * Nausea, perhaps vomiting * Blurred vision * In women, frequent vaginal
This is important statement because it proves that gender identity and sexual orientation is not purely choice, but driven by biological forces. Because hormones play such a diverse role in bodily functions, I will break down hormones into categories to provide clarification. Hormones are chemicals that come from the endocrine gland and are released into the circulatory system (Pinel, 2009). Hormones affect other endocrine glands or various parts in the nervous system. There are three types of hormones: amino acids, peptides and proteins, and steroids (Pinel, 2009).
This is because it secretes various hormones that control all the other glands in the body when stimulated by the hypothalamus. It also produces hormones that regulate the growth rate of children and awaken the sexual glands at puberty. The Pineal gland is located near to the center of the brain. It produces a hormone known as serotonin. Research has shown that serotonin to affect different parts of the body depending on how much of it is being secreted and possible combinations with enzymes and other hormones.
Cellular respiration does a lot more than just creating energy for us, it also helps us breathe and control our sugars. So the first stage of cellular respiration is glycolysis which is one of the most important stages because inside this stage the six-carbon glucose is split into two called the pyruvic acid which is located inside the cytoplasm. Glucose provides the energy to make ATP, and that is what helps our cells to work. During glycolysis, six-carbon glucose is broken in half forming two three carbon molecules. In order for the split to occur it needs energy of two ATP molecules.
These EFA’s consist of two primary lipids, Omega-3 (alpha-lenolenic acid) and Omega-6 (linoleic acid). They assist the body in many ways, of which include: * Hormone production * Functioning and proper development of brain and nervous system * Regulation of blood pressure and blood clotting mechanisms * The breakdown and transportation of cholesterol These lipids also play a part in the development of healthy skin and hair. (Rohland, 2014) Lipids are able to partially cross a plasma membrane by the formation of a bilayer. This layer covers the hydrophobic tail, which stays behind buried inside of the membrane, allowing the polar head to be exposed to and in contact with the water. Cholesterol helps to form the bilayer membrane that surrounds each cell within the body.
GABA, the hormone responsible for anxiety relief naturally in the human body is enhanced by the BZs. The BZs will also help to reduce the serotonin activity in the brain, which is the neurotransmitter which causes arousal, and reduces anxiety as a result. Benzodiazepines have a number of effects that all lead to the reduction of stress in people without much effort. The other type of drug that could be used to treat stress and anxiety issues are Beta Blockers (BBs). When the body detects stress, the SNS is activated which leads to raised heart rate, which leads to higher blood pressure which can lead to Chronic Heart Disease, heart attack, stroke etc.
The enzyme Amylase is very important to this process because it assists in breaking down starch molecules into glucose which is needed as an energy source in the mitochondria of an organism. In an animal’s body starch and amylase work together to keep the animal healthy and nutritionally satisfied. A solution that is used to indicate the presence of starch is Lugol’s reagent (I2KI) also known as Lugol’s iodine. Lugol’s stains the starch a blue/black color due to the iodine’s reaction with the starch’s polysaccharides. In the experiment, two beakers were filled with water.
Assignment 2: Influences on Diet Unit 21: nutrition Contents page Influences on our diet – pages 3 – 19 Assess how influences on dietary intake may affect nutritional health – pages 19 – 25 Make realistic recommendations for minimising negative influences on individual’s diets in a specific care setting – pages 25 – 28 Reference list – page 29 Influences on our diet Health factors So far we have discussed the diet of healthy people, but there are so many underlying health problems which can cause a person to require specific nutrients and can influence what they can and cannot eat. People require a healthy diet including all the essential nutrients but this can become difficult when you have to avoid certain foods, makes it harder to ensure that you are eating a balanced diet. Diabetes mellitus – People whose pancreas does not produce enough of the hormone insulin or it’s being produced in insufficient quantities or the body is not using the insulin properly. We call this condition diabetes mellitus. There are two different types of diabetes, the most dangerous type of diabetes is type 1, and this is when a person is insulin dependent.
2. Explain how poor nutrition can contribute to an individual’s experience of dementia. Poor nutrition can make the symptoms of dementia worse, increase risk of more frequent infections requiring use of antibiotics. Malnutrition also affects immune system making it difficult to fight an infection. Effects of poor nutrition:- • Higher risk of infection • Reduced wound healing • Dermatological problems • Constipation • Disturbed sleeping pattern • Weight loss/gain Dementia can greatly affect a person's relationship to food and eating.
Insulin is one of many hormones that helps the body turn the food we eat into energy. Also, insulin helps us store energy that we can use later. After we eat, insulin works by causing sugar (glucose) to go from the blood into our body's cells to make fat, sugar, and protein. When we need more energy between meals, insulin will help us use the fat, sugar, and protein that we have stored. Insulin is produced by our own insulin that is made in
