Uncover cause: Likely best to see a neurologist. There are multiple problems which can cause this, and treatment follows diagnosis.See 1 more doctor answer
Gait is the way locomotion is achieved using our limbs. Gait is defined as "bipedal, biphasic forward propulsion of center of gravity of human body, in which there is alternate movements of different segments of the body". Different gaits are characterized by differences in limb movement patterns, overall velocity, forces, ...Read more
Best answer: My best answer is what I found on the web: "generally, electrolyte disturbance symptoms depend on which electrolytes are affected and the severity of the imbalance. Most electrolyte problems involve abnormal levels of sodium, potassium, or calcium. Typical mild symptoms of an electrolyte disturbance include dizziness and muscles cramps or weakness." I would see a dr..
Not quite sure: Nutrient imbalance is a very vague, non medical term. Different people imply different notions. Say, fat malabsorption due to pancreatitis (chronic) may cause nutrient imbalance in that fat is being lost from the body. Glutein intolerance may cause iron deficiency anemia, which is nutrient imbalance due to lack of iron. B12 malabsorption will lead to decrease of B12 and nutrient imbalance.See 1 more doctor answer
Means nothing: Hi. "Hormone imbalance" is a lay term, and means nothing to a physician. There are a bazillion hormonal systems in the body than can be "out of balance" to use your terminology. So, yes, docs in my specialty (endocrinology) treat many hormone systems that are damaged or defective for one reason or another. If you want to be more specific, we could give you more information. Good luck!
Hormone imbalance: If you don't have documented hormone imbalance stop worrying. If you have not seen your doctor about this please do so. If you have had results/comments from your doctor I would appreciate seeing them
More specifics?: "hormone imbalances" in pediatrics has an entire subspecialty dedicated to it known as pediatric endocrinology. Your question is really far too general to be answered adequately for you. Can you be more specific about the problem? Also, I believe the best way to address these questions is to speak with your physician about them, and if they can't asnswer your questions, request a referral.See 2 more doctor answers
Sorry, can't make: That diagnostic assessment on -line. See your gynecologist to help make the distinction. Reasons for missed/late periods: low body weight, obesity, marked weight ^ or v, over-exercise, endurance athletics, breast-feeding, ^ stress, illness, eating disorders (bulimia or anorexia), anovulatory cycle (no egg released), travel, hormone irregularities, drug use, meds, medical problems or pregnancy.
Upright Motion: Gait is the way locomotion is achieved using our limbs. Gait is defined as "bipedal, biphasic forward propulsion of center of gravity of human body, in which there is alternate movements of different segments of the body". Different gaits are characterized by differences in limb movement patterns, overall velocity, forces, kinetic and potential movement.
Varies by cause: The key to fixing an awkward gait is determing the cause - is it muscular, skeletal, neurological, etc. Pt can help for muscular injuries, and for some neurological conditions meds can help. As always good diagnosis begets good treatment and better outcomes.
In general...yes: If you have inefficient biomechanics, your gait can be improved by modalities like physical therapy and orthotics. Your gait is a complex series of coordinated muscle movement and can be influenced by age, structure, muscle control, etc. And affected by functioning body systems (i.e. Nervous system, circulation, musculoskeletal system, etc.). Kind of a tough question without a physical exam.
Hormonal imbalance: An interesting/important question but hard to describe in a short space. I recommend you go online to and look for patient centered articles that should give you a lot of incite to your question. When you have read a few articles and still have questions feel free to contact me.
Awkward gait: Uncoordinated manner of walking / food movement.
Here are some...: Testing electrolytes is an indirect way to check the homeostasis of body fluid and its contents; their abnormalities usually suggests their already significant derangements. So, yes, a documented electrolyte imbalance will definitely affect your body all-all functionality and endurance. More on life reality? Go to articles listed in http://formefirst. Com/onLifeBasics.
