Whenever the term of hypersensitivity comes within the minds of an individual, then instantly it strikes, How to get recovered from this? Besides, every individual in this busiest schedule desire to visit a doctor to live a disorder free-life.

Allergy or hypersensitivity is recognized as an exaggerated response that provides damage to the body of the host. It mainly occurs due to an environmental antigen such as hay fever, asthma, dermatitis and many others. The substance which creates a reaction within the immune system of the body is described as allergen. Moreover, these types of reactions expand and grow within the body very rapidly, which might prove harmful for an individual. Other than this, the sensitive reactions are extremely idiosyncratic due to extreme activation of specific number of white blood cells also described as mast cells and basophils, a specific type of antibody named immunoglobulin E (IgE) reacts with it. The reaction leads to an inflammatory response, which might prove dangerous for the health of the individual in the coming days. Inflammation is caused due to release of histamine along with other chemicals through a procedure of degranulation, which is extremely harmful for the individuals. In order to get freedom, from these disorders, it is extremely essential to consult with experienced and skilled doctors known as allergist-immunologist. So, that it does not take the sharp of a chronic disorder, hampering both the personal and professional life of an individual. Otherwise, it might result in downfall of the level of performance, leading to increase of absenteeism due to hay fevers or allergic reactions. Along with this, it might also reduce the status and reputation of an individual within the organizational group, resulting in decline of the renownedness, which is extremely essential to sustain for longer period of time. Not only this, due to decline in the level of productivity the corporate image and fidelity of the organization would also reduce, which may not prove fruitful for the brand among others. Therefore, it can be described that, a simple reaction might hamper the entire image of an individual, which might prove detrimental for him/her.

Apart from this, most of the sensitive reactions are caused due to inappropriate immunological responses with harmful antigens. It provides varied types of signs and symptoms such as irritation of nose, sneezing, itching, redness of eyes, slight fever and many others. Maximum extent of the individuals in the entire world is suffering from the disorder of sensitivity, which is extremely spreadable from one another. Due to such causes, it is extremely essential to undergo allergy treatments. This is help an individual to maintain a safe and healthy life in the coming years, by reducing the symptoms of hypersensitive reactions.

In order to get rid from varied types of allergic reactions within the body, diverse range of allergy medicines are also prescribed by the doctors or surgeons such as antihistamines, combination drugs, corticosteroids and many others for the prevention of these disorders. Therefore, the above mentioned medicines are extremely essential to get freedom from these types of immune system associated disorders.

    How does people get type 1 diabetes?
    I don’t want it
    I’m just curious
    Like what is it
    Like how to get it
    I don’t want it poeples!

    1. carmeliasue

      Type 1 diabetes is usually a progressive autoimmune disease, in which the beta cells that produce insulin are slowly destroyed by the body’s own immune system. It is unknown what first starts this cascade of immune events, but evidence suggests that both a genetic predisposition and environmental factors, such as a viral infection, are involved.

      Islets of Langerhans contain beta cells and are located within the pancreas. Beta cells produce insulin which is needed to metabolize glucose within the body.

      Certain factors are thought to be important in this process:

      •White blood cells called T lymphocytes produce immune factors called cytokines that attack and gradually destroy the beta cells of the pancreas. Important cytokines are interleukin-1beta, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, and interferon-gamma.
      •Specific proteins are also critical in the process. They include glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD), insulin, and islet cell antigens. These proteins serve as autoantigens. That is, they trigger the self-attack of the autoantibodies on the body’s own beta cells.
      Progression from the first stage, known as insulitis, to full-blown diabetes can take 7 years or longer. Unfortunately, by the time a person is aware that something is wrong and goes to the doctor with symptoms of type 1 diabetes, about 80 – 90% of the beta cells have been destroyed.

      More than half of patients with insulitis do not develop diabetes. Researchers are greatly interested in discovering any factors that prevent the disease.

      Genetic Abnormalities
      Researchers have found at least 18 genetic locations, labeled IDDM1 – IDDM18, that are related to type 1 diabetes. The IDDM1 region contains the HLA genes that encode proteins called major histocompatibility complex. The genes in this region affect the immune response. New advances in genetic research are identifying other genetic components of type 1 diabetes. Other chromosomes and genes continue to be identified.

      The odds of inheriting the disease, however, are only 10% if a first-degree relative has diabetes, and even in identical twins, one twin has only a 33% chance of having type 1 diabetes if the other has it. Children are more likely to inherit the disease from a father with type 1 diabetes than from a mother with the disorder.

      Genetic factors cannot fully explain the development of diabetes. Over the past 30 years, a major increase in the incidence of type 1 diabetes has been reported in certain European countries, and the incidence has nearly tripled in the northeastern U.S. If genetic factors were the only cause of type 1 diabetes, such an increase in cases would take at least 400 years.

      Viruses
      Some researchers believe one or more viral infections may trigger the disease in genetically susceptible individuals. Researchers suggest the following scenario:

      •An infection introduces a viral protein that resembles a beta-cell protein.
      •T cells and antibodies are tricked by this resemblance into attacking the beta protein as well as the virus.
      Among the viruses under scrutiny are enteric viruses, which attack the intestinal tract. Coxsackieviruses are a family of enteric viruses of particular interest. Epidemics of Coxsackie virus, as well as mumps and congenital rubella, have been associated with incidence of type 1 diabetes.

    Am I likely to have a vitamin D deficiency?
    I live in the UK. I work long shifts, so start at 0800-2030 for day shift. Night shift is 2000-0830 then home to bed for the sunshine hours. I do 13 shifts a month. On my days off I stay inside on the computer or cooking. Sometimes I go for a walk or to the supermarket etc but the weather is often overcast anyway.

    I tend towards a low mood. I wonder if this could be why?

    Do you still get Vitamin D when you use sunscreen?
    Whenever I go outside in hot, sunny weather for more than 30 minutes, I use a high SPF sunscreen all over my body and face. I like the feel of the sun, and I want the Vitamin D, but I want to keep a really light skin tone. Do you get Vitamin D if you have sunscreen on?

  4. rose

    Can I get vitamin D from daylight instead of sunlight?
    For example, if the sun is behind the building or right up in the sky but I am just at the window, can I still get vitamin D?

    Which type of fish or seafood do you think is better for you?
    As far as health topics go, which type of fish is best? Which freezes better, tastes better, has the most nutrients, fights different diseases, has a lower saturated fat content, etc. Or go the opposite direction! Which types of fish are worse for you? Mmmm, I love fish! And all seafood, for that matter!

    Except for jelly fish. They suck.

      SALMON and TROUT are good for you. But anything you eat should be eaten in moderation.

      According to researchers, the combination could be a potentially dangerous food source for some patients with heart disease, arthritis, asthma and other allergic and autoimmune diseases that are particularly vulnerable to an ‘exaggerated inflammatory response.’

      Inflammation is known to cause damage to blood vessels, the heart, lung and joint tissues, skin, and the digestive tract.

      Researchers said that their research revealed that farm-raised tilapias, as well as farmed catfish, ‘have several fatty acid characteristics that would generally be considered by the scientific community as detrimental.’

      Tilapia has higher levels of potentially detrimental long-chain omega-6 fatty acids than 80-percent-lean hamburger, doughnuts and even pork bacon, the article says.

      “For individuals who are eating fish as a method to control inflammatory diseases such as heart disease, it is clear from these numbers that tilapia is not a good choice,” the authors said

      “All other nutritional content aside, the inflammatory potential of hamburger and pork bacon is lower than the average serving of farmed tilapia,” they added.

      For their study, researchers obtained a variety of fish from several sources, including seafood distributors that supply restaurants and supermarkets, two South American companies, fish farms in several countries, and supermarkets in four states.

      All samples were snap-frozen for preservation pending analysis, which was performed with gas chromatography.

      The researchers found that farmed tilapia contained only modest amounts of omega-3 fatty acids – less than half a gram per 100 grams of fish, similar to flounder and swordfish.

      Farmed salmon and trout, by contrast, had nearly 3 and 4 grams, respectively.

      At the same time, the tilapia had much higher amounts of omega-6 acids generally and AA specifically than both salmon and trout.

    Is it possible that someone got Syphilis for years without getting it on genital parts?
    and the bumps are very less in numbers?

    1. Marielle

      Absolutely YES! I am a retired nurse epidemiologist in STDs. Syphilis is a very mysterious disease that can mimic other diseases. Syphilis is a bacteria so of course as soon as you get the correct medicine at the correct dosage it goes away. If there is permanent damage, it will not reverse. Syphilis comes in stages. First there is an incubation period of 3 weeks to 3 months where nothing shows or hurts. The primary stage is a dime size sore with raised edges that has clear Liquid in the center and can show up any where on the body. It does not hurt or itch and it does clear up and go away on its own after a month. Second stage is a light brown, flat rash anywhere on the body that does not hurt or itch and will clear up and go away on its own. So most people that see a sore or rash that does not hurt or itch and goes away or clears up on its own does not bring a lot of concern. The syphilis spirochete bacteria once entered into your blood stream will be distributed through your body within 2 hours after exposure. Even when the primary and secondary stages clear up, the bacteria is still free to attack the organs inside the body. One of the parts it affects after a while is your eyes. People start to have problems with their vision and go to the eye doctor. He draws blood to check for syphilis. Same with some one who gets pain and swelling in their joints will go to an arthritis doctor and again a syphilis test will be done. Similar bacterias (cousins to syphilis) are in countries around the world near the equator in the soil. Children don’t normally wear shoes so, if they get a cut or scratch and of course some dirt gets in it, the bacteria goes in to their blood. In Africa and Asia it is called “Yaws” and in South America it is called “Pinta”. When they come to the USA they are tested and if they are positive they get the same treatment as if it was the STD strain of bacteria. Depending on the test numbers and their history determines how much medicine they get. If you are HIV positive or have AIDS, then a different type of antibiotic is given.
      I have seen sores on all parts of the body, in the mouth, vagina, anus and the rash can be any where on the body. After treatment the patient is followed for a year with periodical blood draws. Even after treatment, their FTA is always going to be reactive as these are memory cells. 10% of people in their 80’s will be FTA reactive due to their age. Many things can trigger the RPR to be positive like pregnancy, street drugs, autoimmune diseases, etc. Thats why a confirmation test is done to see if it is a true infection.

    How to get 600 IU of Vitamin D per day?
    Or 15 micrograms of Calcium per day? I just learned that teens should get at least 600 IU of Vitamin D, but how do I get them all in one day?

    Can do someone please give me a list of foods with Vitam D to total as 600 IU per day?

  8. Steph

    I need help with one question For Anatomy?
    How would a vitamin D deficiency increase the risk of bone fracture? Why could this be possible for rural children who drink fresh cow’s milk, but unlikely for urban children who drink mil from the grocery store?

    Does vitamin D supplementation genuinely reduce your risk of catching influenza?
    I’ve read a bit that vitamin D can and does reduce your risk of developing influenza by a large percentage.
    I take 5000 IU of vitamin D3 per day during Autumn/Winter to reduce my risk but was wondering; is it really worth it?
    I’ve gotten the flu shot as well which may help.

    Thanks!

    What happens if your vitamin D is very low?
    My doctor called me today to inform me that my vitamin D is very low & that I have to take 800mg everyday. I would still like to know what happens if your vitamin D is low? Thanks.

    How is vitamin D good for your body?
    What exactly does vitamin D do and how is it good for you?
    my doctor told me i was low on vitamin D. So i had to start taking vitamin D supplement pills.
    But i don’t even know what vitamin D does for you.

    Can my hepatitis return after I have undergone treatment?
    I had treatment in 2005, however, now I am experencing itchiness of my skin (which was one of my primary symptoms), fatigue and major joint pain.

      You should have had bloodwork at various points of time since you’ve finished the treatment. At six months post treatment, if you still have an undetectable viral load, then you have a good chance that it won’t return. At one year undetectable post treatment you have a less than 2% chance of it returning (unless you become re-exposed to risk factors for HCV).
      One of the factors that affects the probability of clearing the virus through treatment depends on what genotype of hep c you had. Genotype 1 is most prevalent in the US and less responsive to the medication- but not impossible to treat. Therefore, if you have genotype 1, the treatment is done for one year. Genotype 1 has a 50-57% chance of responding. Genotype 2 has the best chance of clearing; about 80%, and usually only requires a 6 month treatment. Geno 3 responds well, too (80%), and also requires a 6 month treatment, but some physicians are beginning to treat geno 3’s for a year due to them relapsing.
      While on treatment, most people will maintain an undetectable viral load. Your symptoms could be from hep c or from other problems. There is a high correlation of joint pain/arthritis/ autoimmune diseases with people that have hep c. My joint pain pretty much went away during treatment, but became much worse after I stopped. My hep c was cleared (and still is – for 6 years now) but I have since found out that I have an autoimmune type of arthritis (spondylar arthritis) that probably occurred as aresult of having the HCV virus.
      Anyway, my point is that you should have a PCR test (viral load) to determine if you’re clear of the virus. If you are clear, then you may need to go to a rhuematologist to see if you have an autoimmune disease. Best wishes to you.

    Is there a relationship between PTH and cortisol?
    I suspect that I may have a problem with my parathyroid gland(s). My Vitamin D level is low at 13 and my upper abdomin is in A LOT of pain. But, my calcium is still normal (at 9.7) although climbing in the last 3 months.

    Taking cortisol – both natural and prescription – seems to make me feel slightly better.

    So, my question is: if I have hyperparathyroidism, how does this affect cortisol?

    Thanks.
