Are Chromosomal Abnormalities Such As The Ones Shown Confined Only To Certain Parts Of The Body
All the same,but: The major abnormalities associated with chromosomal defects do seem to affect some specific body structures more than others.These are often the ones that require a lot of information to form right. The face/hands/heart are example areas where noticeable alterations are seen. Nonetheless, all cell lines in the body will have the same defect. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Usually: The vast majority of trisomy patients will have the trisomy in every cell of their body. There is a small percentage that will be what is called a mosaic, where the trisomy effects a fraction of the cells. In theory the trisomy starts in one group of cells and continues to all that develop after the change, but another normal line also produces normal tissues. The amount affects the outcome. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: The typical chromosomal(chm) defect shows up as abnormal chm in every cell of your body. Some cells do little (skin just sits there) while others do a lot ( form the heart, hands, brain). The need for detail in complex parts means the defect will have more effect. Rare chm defects produce a mosaic, where a fraction of the body has normal & others abnormal. Variable effect. ...Read more
Are there any diseases directly transmitted by rodents such as mice that can cause twitching throughout the entire body of a human?
ChangeTheSongOnRadio: Only if they're crawling all over you, freaking you out. Now don't get me wrong, those little critters can carry some rather frightful diseases that can cause muscle and joint aches, amongst other symptoms, that could make you want to twitch--even some brain inflammation that could do that too, but those diseases are rare or non-existent in the U.S. ...Read more
Circulation: There are no studies that prove that any nutrient or food can increase circulation in the blood stream. Beware of any promotional material that makes these claims. There are plenty of foods (collectively eaten as a 'diet') that can result long-term in blockages to the arteries. Reversing this type of unhealthy diet will prevent progression of these blockages but not necessarily reverse the blockag. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Do glucocorticoids suppress all parts of the immune system, or suppress some parts and increase the activity of other parts?
Complicated: The answer is complicated. In general glucocorticoids suppress the immune system by interfering with protein production in cells. That being said, glucocorticoids also work on receptors in the cytoplasm of cells, enacting signal mechanisms, some of which are unclear as to action. Glucocorticoids also release food stores for use in a stress reaction. ...Read more
How common is stomach cancer in the U.S., and does it mostly affect certain types of people, such as meat-eaters?
Not very common: Stomach or gastric cancers have decreased in the US since the 1940's. There are some stomach cancers however associated with H. pylori stomach infections. Smoked foods, excess alcohol intake, and cigarette smoking may be associated with stomach cancer. It is more common in other countries than the US. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Do you know are the types of dioxins present in auto exhaust the type that bioaccumulate in the body for decades?
Danger seems minor: If you believed everything you read about dioxins, you'd be reading uncritically. It's enormously politicized, and much of what's written both by "greens" and "industry" is clearly bogus. Dioxins accumulate in the food chain, but are not specially stored in humans that ingest or inhale them; Mr. Yusuchenko got rid of the toxic dose quickly though he was left with scars. ...Read more
What organelles are affected in a patient with multiple sclerosis and how are they malfunctioning within the cell?
Try several sites: In general, this is a disease of the myelin coverings of nerves within the central nervous system. We do find autoimmune reactions mediated by activated white cells which cross the brain/blood barrier to attack brain and spinal cord. There may be additional problems involving astrocytic and microglial functions. See more information at Mayo Clinic and Johns Hopkins websites, Wikepedia, aan.com ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is there an autoimmune disease that targets attacks and kills literally as many nerves in the body as it can and with time symptoms degenerate fast.
Actually, yes: There are several such diseases. Which nerves are attacked determines what the symptoms are. ...Read more
In what kinds of neurons myelinated sheath is found and in which area of our body they are present?
Several: Milk allergy can have symptoms of hives, swelling and anaphylaxis (severe life threatening reaction). In infants, milk allergy can lead to asthma and nasal allergy symptoms--this is very unusual in adults. Also heiner's syndrome is a milk reaction in infants where they have pneumonia-like changes on chest x-ray, anemia and GI symptoms. Milk allergy can flare eczema (atopic dermatitis). ...Read more
Apart from hair color, foods they eat, are all the functioning of organs inside the human body, the type of diseases the very same in any part of world?
Yes: But we all differ in detail so the particular disease might be genetic risk. ...Read more
As we know that fibro is due to abnormalities in the levels of chemicals in the brain but how could treatment restore the normal balance of chemicals?
Sensitization: Central sensitization is the process of the CNS nerve receptors becoming hyper-sensitive to stimulation whereas normal touch and movement becomes painful. This is one of the working possibilities behind fm. The issue remains that little is none as to how to diagnose and how to treat. This symdrome is diagnosed too often and too early, with many complaints explained by other pathology. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can a brain tumor cause problems in other parts of the body? (ex: stomach ulcers, sickness) if a brain tumor is present near the optical part of the brain, can it cause problems in the body such as sickness?
Too Broad: This question, to answer, would take up a ten pound textbook. What do you mean by drugs? Medications? Supplements? Illegal substances? Taking any medication without the doctor's input is very dangerous. There is risk to health and risk to legal standing within your community. ...Read more
