Genetic (Definition)

From a medical standpoint, "genetic" refers to the potential heritability of various medical conditions. While some conditions are inevitable (at some point in one's life) as a consequence of simple genetic heritability (eg huntington's disease), a large number of medical conditions (including all behaviorial health disorders) are the expressed final pathway of a ...Read more

Crohn's disease & metabolic bone disease. Is there a relation?

Crohn's disease & metabolic bone disease. Is there a relation?

Yes: Yes, potentially by three mechanisms: first, a percentage of patients with Crohn's disease will have an inflammatory arthritic component to it that can affect the bones; second, patients with Crohn's can have malabsorption of some of the key nutrients that make bone string; and third, some of the medications used to treat Crohn's can impact bone health. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

Is there a correlation between adrenal insufficiency and liver disease?

Is there a correlation between adrenal insufficiency and liver disease?

Sometimes: Good question but difficult to answer. Rarely, there can an autoimmune basis for having both, the adrenal gland and liver being attacked by body's own immune system (causing adrenalitis and hepatitis respectively). In infants with hypopituitraism where they are lacking adequate cortisol levels due to adrenal insufficiency, it is not uncommon to see elevated liver enzymes. Talk with your doctor. ...Read more

Is there a connection between addisons disease and diabetes?

Is there a connection between addisons disease and diabetes?

Connection: There is a condition called polyglandular syndrome consisting primarily of autoimmune thyroid, adrenal and type 1 diabetes. In general, whenever you have one autoimmune disease, you are at higher risk of developing another autoimmune disease. ...Read more

What is the difference between addison's disease and primary adrenal insufficiency ?

Can be the same: Addison's disease is primary adrenal insufficiency and implies that the immune system is attacking the part of the adrenal gland which makes cortisol. Primary adrenal insufficiency doesn't have to be autoimmune, however. Secondary adrenal insufficiency is when the pituitary gland doesn't make enough acth, a hormone which signals the adrenal gland to make cortisol. ...Read more

Is addison's disease genetic?

Is addison's disease genetic?

Not usually: The leading causes of Addison' disease in the US are: autoimmune; metastatic cancer; bleeding into adrenal glands; infectious infiltration (such as tuberculosis). Only the autoimmune type may possibly run in families, whose members typically have other autoimmune disorders such as type 1 diabetes, hypothyroidism, vitiligo, pernicious anemia, or myasthenia gravis, to name a few. ...Read more

Is addisons disease a genetic hereditary problem?

Is addisons disease a genetic hereditary problem?

Addisions is genetic: In 2012 the answer is usually yes. Tuberculosis caused dr. Addison to describe the condition. Now it is any failure of the adrenal glands. Today it does run in families where autoimmune diseases occur. (thyroid, diabetes, adrenal, celiac, etc). ...Read more

What are the differences between celiac disease and autoimmune hepatitis problems?

What are the differences between celiac disease and autoimmune hepatitis problems?

Location of effect: Celiac involves an immune reaction that triggers antibodies that injure your intestinal absorptive lining. Autoimmune hepatitis is a similar immune reaction but the antibodies attack liver cells. Both are errors in the immune system, but the antibodies and their target are different. ...Read more

What differs - graves disease or basedow disease ?

Medical history: Graves and basedow were 19th century mds who wrote about hyperthyroid goiter. Most people refer to the autoimmune condition (goiter, hyperthyroid, eye findings) as graves disease, but the term "basedow disease" exists. However, there is the jod-basedow phenomenon, which refers to hyperthyroidism from too much iodine intake. This usually occurs in an iodine deficient area (not the us). ...Read more

Is pku and huntington disease the same disease entity?

Is pku and huntington disease the same disease entity?

Some comments: Pku is a problem with children and this needs early diagnosis to prevent profound complications. Huntington's chorea is an autosomal dominant disorder occurring later in life, and is relatively rare, but genetic counseling might be valuable. Neither disorder has any relationship to the other. ...Read more

Is there a relationship between peripheral artery disease and epinephrine levels?

Is there a relationship between peripheral artery disease and epinephrine levels?

No: No, there is no relationship between Epinephrine and vascular disease. However, Epinephrine does increase peripheral vascular resistance. It does this by causing all the little muscles in the arteries and capillaries to clamp down. This increases someone's blood pressure. ...Read more

Difference between cushing disease and syndrome ?

Difference between cushing disease and syndrome ?

Disease vs. syndrome: Hi. Cushing's disease is specifically hypercortisolism due to an ACTH-secreting pituitary adenoma. Cushing's syndrome is simply the clinical manifestations of hypercortisolism, and (once you know it's not pituitary) can be due to adrenal tumors (benign or malignant), exogenous glucocorticoid therapy, or a paraneoplastic syndrome (cancers that secrete ACTH or CRH). ...Read more
