I was wondering what are some complicated diseases that are caused by organisms in the human body?
There are many:
Tuberculosis from tubercle bacillus: Syphilis, a sexually transmitted disease from the spirochete bacillus called treponema pallidum, tertiary syphilis can be very complex affecting all parts of the body. Schistosomiasis or bilharzia caused by parasitic worms: Malaria caused by the parasitic Plasmodium falciparum & spread by mosquitos.
Many organisms: E. Coli, proteus, enterococcus, klebsiella.Get a more detailed answer ›

I use baby shampoo because my scalp is extremely sensitive. Other shampoos cause dermatitis. Will baby shampoo help rid of micro organisms? (Bacteria)
Sure: Generally it is made without much in terms if fragrance since babies have more sensitive skin- I think it's a good choice. ...Read more
No one knows: It is estimated that there are between 500-1000 different species in the human gut alone. An interesting finding has been that obese people typically have less diversity in the gut microbiome compared with lean adults. In general, less microbial diversity in the gut is associated with more chronic disease. ...Read more
1. An individual form of life, such as a plant, animal, bacterium, protist, or fungus; a body made up of organs, organelles, or other parts that work together to carry on the various processes of life.
2. A system regarded as analogous in its structure or functions to a living body: the social organism. ...Read more
That would be all: All organisms, every living thing on planet earth, requires some form of food and a proper environment for growth, and for staying alive if no longer growing. Soe organisms can become spores or seeds, in a dried-up or dormant way, and don't need food umntil they sprout, hatch, or otherwise come back to life. ...Read more
I had a culture and sensitivity test done and it came out negative with no organisms found. Should I just remove the IUCD?
Not yet. . .: Not enough info. Why did you have C&S done? What was cultured? What symptoms are you trying to diagnose? What will you use in place of IUCD (intrauterine contraceptive device)? Discuss all these questions w/your Family Doc or GYN. ...Read more
Single organism less than 10, 000 isolated. These organisms common on external and internal genitalia considered colonizers. No further testing. Neg?
Negative.: This is generally considered colonization or contamination (would need full report), unless there are very specific organisms are present. Treatment is not recommended, because the side effects of the antibiotics could outweigh the risk of treating colonization or contamination. Also, excessive antibiotic use could lead to antibiotic resistance in the future, should you get an infection. ...Read more

Ontogeny recapitul-: Ates phylogeny. That means that during embryonic development, the embryo goes through physical forms that mimic your ancestors, rather than just develop right into a human. An early human embryo looks very much like our amphibian and then dinosaur (well, chicken, which is really the same thing) ancestors, and then many early structures wither and die, being replaced by more advanced species. ...Read more
Which active immunity is the result of receiving vaccinations with active or attenuated organisms?
Confusing question: Active immunity is any immunity your body develops on its own to whatever agent is used. (active or attenuated)It generally lasts for a long time. Passive immunity is what happens when you get a gamma globulin shot, that lasts for weeks to a few months before disappearing. ...Read more
Help! Is it possible to have a strong immune system but still be susceptible to certain infectious organisms?
Yes: The immune system isn't static, it can wax and wane, being immunocompetent does not mean you are not susceptible to infection, but not getting rid of the infection easily is the problem ...Read more
Can blood testing tell what type of foreign bodies/organisms/pathogenes attacking my body... And now my children?
Possible.: Infections may be diagnosed by a blood test or wound cultures. ...Read more
20, 000 -30, 000 cfu/ml mixed gram positive flora multiple organisms isolated, no predominance. What does this mean?
Similar structure: Hi the engineered insulins are VERY similar in structure to native human insulin. The human insulin gene is rearranged so that the engineered protein differs from regular human insulin by only 1 amino acid. The change is significant for how the insulin molecules behave at acid/neutral pH or how they fail to aggregate, but not enough to be recognized as different by the immune system. Fortuitous! ...Read more
If the clotrimzole does not kill the organisms, will the infection return or eventually flare up again?
More complicated: Yeast infections are caused by our body's own yeast. Yeast are a normal part of the vagina and you can't get rid of it completely. The level of yeast is kept in check by the presence of a good bacteria, called lactobacilus. Things that kill this good bacteria allow the yeast to overgrow and cause symptoms. You cannot take anything to get the levels of the lactobacilus back to normal. ...Read more
