Organs Human Body Affected Salmonella
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.
I cut my thumb while cutting raw chicken. Could this lead to salmonella going into the bloodstream and effecting other organs?
I've never heard or: Encountered this in 35 years of clinical practice, but I suppose it is theoretically possible. Many rare events would have to coincide: the chicken was actually infected with salmonella; the infected part came in contact with your cut; there was enough of the bacteria transmitted to actually infect you. All of this is highly unlikely. Stay well:) ...Read more

Does your body develope a temporary immunity to salmonella after infection? Even if only for just a couple of days?
Yes; and Complex: All infections, if "cured", are cured by body immune system, not antibiotics ; other treatments. Antibiotics are poisons, ones selected because host generally tolerates them better than "infectious agent", a chemical warfare strategy. However, if immune system too compromised, just slows inevitable. However, limited clinical trial data on salmonella for definitive answers to your wise thinking. ...Read more
How true that eating raw rice can cause harmful bacteria in the body like salmonella? Is there really side effect of taking raw rice?
Not really: Any food can be contaminated with bacterial pathogens but commercially purchased rice is not likely to be any more dangerous than any other product. Certainly, if taken directly from a rice paddy in countries in which human excrement is used as fertilizer, this may create a risk. ...Read more
I took Imodium before suspecting I had Salmonella. Now my stomach is forming all these noises and I'm unable to go to the restroom even if I wanted to. Am I basically trapping the toxins in my body? What should I do? I also feel very nauseous. Thank you!
My son had a salmonella infection in march. In early sept. He developed continual, alternating diarrhea, constipation with constant stomach/body ache?
Are we meant to have flat stomachs? Because all the diagrams of the human body show a very lean figure with the internal organs inside of? Thin=ideal?
Body weight/physique: Being overweight or obese is not healthy. It raises the risk for diabetes, heart disease and even some cancers. Ideal body weight depends on your height, & you can find charts online called BMI charts to help you find your ideal weight range. We all need some fat on our bodies to keep warm and to allow our body systems to work properly. But too much fat especially around the abdomen is unhealthy. ...Read more

All of them: Every organ in your body and every cell (including bone and fate) make some sort of hormones. Most work locally, others circulate in the blood. There are thousands and thousands of them. You may be thinking of the"ductless" glands, which is very old terminology. ...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
What are the chemical stimuli in the human body the eyes fingers etc (sense organs) or something else?
Neurochemicals: All sensory organs convert a stimulus (light, sound, heat, cold, touch, pressure, etc.) into an electrical signal which travels up the nerve for the body to respond to that stimulus. There are a variety of neurochemicals that are part of this relay including acetylcholine and epinephrine and many others. The specific one depends upon the circuit in question. ...Read more
Skin and retina: Malignant melanomas most commonly develop in the skin as the cell of origin, the melanocytes, are most numerous in the skin. However, there are also some cases of retinal melanomas. These are only detected by routine eye exams. This is why, in addition to routine skin checks, we also encourage sunglasses and yearly eye checks. ...Read more
