Although cardiovascular disease is not always avoidable, there are ways in which one can help to prevent it. A few examples of this would, if someone was a smoker, they should quit immediately or never start at all. Also one should lower their bad cholesterol (LDL) and as stated earlier, aspirin can help with the lowering of the cholesterol. Another thing that we should do is control our blood pressure. Exercising can also play a big role as well.
It is easier for your doctor to diagnose Lupus if you have the most common symptoms and your blood has certain proteins. The proteins are called antinuclear antibodies, or ANA. But other problems can cause your body to make ANA’s so doctors will use blood test and other tests to find out if you have
Causes Diverticula usually develop under pressure when naturally weak places in your colon give away. This causes marble-sized pouches to protrude through the colon wall. Increased pressure in the colon can lead to breakdown of the diverticula wall, leading to an infection. Diverticulitis is mostly common in Western and Asian populations, due to insufficient amount of fiber in their diets. In Western Americans, pouches are mostly found in the sigmoid and descending colon.
But even without a cure, kids with sickle cell disease can lead relatively normal lives. Medicines are available to help manage the pain, and immunisations and daily doses of penicillin (an antibiotic) can help prevent infection. Infection used to cause many deaths in infants and young children with sickle cell disease, but thanks to penicillin (or a similar antibiotic, amoxicilin) and appropriate immunisations, kids are much more likely to live longer, healthier lives. Although penicillin isn't a cure, it can help prevent life-threatening infections due to bacteria that cause serious infections in the blood, meningitis, and
Corticosteroids, either in pill or topical form are usually the first things that doctors will give patients with this.These medications reduce inflammation and can help to heal the blisters and relieve itching although they work well as a treatment they can have serious side effects if used for too long. Because of this your doctor would take you off the medication as soon as the blisters clear up. Another treatment option would be to take medication that suppresses the immune system so the disease cannot grow. But the problem with doing this is it puts you at risk for contracting other diseases. There arent very many ways to prevent this disease due to the fact that it is an immune system based disease so the only things that could really help would be to eat healthy and exercise to maintain a healthy and strong immune system.
These symptoms may come and go; different symptoms may appear at different times during the course of this disease. No two cases of Lupus are alike so people may experience different signs and symptoms. Here is a list of the most common symptoms of lupus for men and women; extreme fatigue, headaches, painful or swollen joints, fever, anemia, swelling, pain in the chest, sensitivity to sunlight, hair loss, and abnormal blood clotting. This disease affects the kidneys, lungs, central nervous system, blood vessels, blood, and the heart. By affecting the kidney, it may impair their ability to rid waste from their body.
Any individual diagnosed with sickle-cell anemia can be treated. Those who have been diagnosed with this disease are mainly kept close under the care of a doctor, especially children of small ages. These patients are prescribed medication to take on a daily basis. Some are given folic acid and others are prescribed penicillin because of an immature immune system, this makes them more at risk for childhood illnesses (Robin E. Miller, Nov.2008). The medications prescribed do not cure the disease but it keeps a person from getting sick.
In general, both children and adults with sickle cell anemia are more vulnerable to infections. This vulnerability is the result of spleen, the organ that filters blood, damage from sickled erythrocytes. Spleen damage prevents the organ from destroying bacteria in the blood. All individuals with the disease, especially young children, are susceptible to bacterial infections such as sepsis, pneumonia and meningitis (Bindon, 2004). Pneumococcal infections was the principal cause of death in children with sickle cell anemia until physicians began routinely giving penicillin on a preventive basis to those who are diagnosed at birth or in early infancy (Bownas, 2000).
In order for someone to have sickle cell anemia they must inherit the gene from both their mother and their father. It is possible for someone to have the sickle cell genetic code but not experience any symptoms, and that is because their body also produces normal red blood cells. In class we had discussed genetic counseling, and because sickle cell anemia is inherited, those who have had loved ones diagnosed with this should seek some sort of genetic counseling to see if they are at risk of
Your body makes antibodies to the vaccine and you are then protected if that microbe ever tries to get past your first line of defence again! nce you are vaccinated, you are immune to the microbe you have been vaccinated against. You have to be vaccinated for each new microbe you need to become immune to, but sometimes a couple of vaccines are mixed together so you can do a couple at once! Usually, when you are immune to a microbe, if it invades your body again you won’t get sick. Every so often though, a microbe that you have been vaccinated against will invade your body and
