    So I know anemics are immune to malaria, but what other genetic disorders have “benefits”?
    I don’t need a lot of information, just the name of the genetic disorder and a short list of benefits. I’ll google the rest. Thanks.

      In a normal brain there’s a pruning phase early on in development where unnecessary connections are eliminated and the brain specializes to focus in on other people so you can determine their emotions and what they’re thinking about and pick a single voice out of all the noise in a crowded restaurant.

      Autistic brains don’t prune enough. They never get the normal set of savant abilities. However sometimes they get something else. Instead of focusing on humans their brains try to focus on, say, music or math or simple games. Anything predictable is a potential target. Whatever it is that’s their world. They often try to get along with normal people, but they have no idea how.

      Mild cases that are focused on practical fields have accomplished incredible things. The result is people like Bill Gates, Robert Oppenheimer and probably Issac Newton.

    How do you get an anorexic person to eat?
    My sister is anorexic, and it’s so hard to get her to eat. She’s already been to the doctor, and right now she’s on a waiting list for an eating disorder clinic. My parents are dumbasses, and they have no idea what they’re doing. All they do is yell at her when she refuses to eat, and it lowers her self-esteem even more. How do I get her to gain weight without her getting upset about it?

    ********I only want answers from people who actually have experience in this issue.

    1. daisy

      Scare her with what could happen if she keeps it up.

      Side effects are:
      -bad breath
      -nutrient deficiencies (which can lead to other problems, like poor eye sight, low immune system)
      – fatigue
      -mood swings
      -stunt growth
      -rupture of the esophagus
      -tooth decay
      -dry hair and skin, hair starts to fall out
      -infertility (no kids)
      And eventually, death.

      Show her pictures of people who are anorexic. Toothless, hairless, people with bones sticking out all over the place. Read her articles and stories about people who’ve died from this, and how awful it was for them to go through it. Check out a couple books from the library about it. Leave them open conveniently on graphic pictures around the house. Do some reading about it. Leave lots of easy snacking food around the house.

      Weight loss.
      Weakened immune system
      Lack of energy.
      Muscle loss. (basically, your body will begin to ‘eat’ itself)

      Reccomended calorie intake for adults is 2,000 for women and 2,500 for men. You have an eating disorder. Get help.

    If I were to get a lung transplant, would I still have asthma?
    Not like major surgery would be a desirable alternative to good asthma management, but more of a curiosity: suppose, for some medically viable reason, I got a lung transplant. Would I still have asthma? Is it something inherent to my lungs, or something about my immune system/body in general?

    Along the same lines, suppose I went braindead and my family consented to donating my organs. Would whoever got my lungs have asthma, even if they didn’t before?

    1. LazlaHollyfeld

      It depends on several things. If asthma is a disease of the lungs (rather than of the immune system or something), then yes, they’d get asthma. Of course, if that were true, they wouldn’t use them.

      If, on the the other hand, it’s an immune system disorder (and they don’t seem to know for sure WHAT causes asthma), then you would still have asthma after you got new lungs.

      Some cystic fibrosis kids get lung transplants, though, even though the cf will eventually damage the new ones. A few more years of breathing must be considered enough of a benefit to use them in such kids. If there is not a lot of demand for lungs, or heart/lungs, it seems a good use to me. If there were other people dying who could be saved to live a normal lifetime, I’m sure they’d be higher on the list. Lots and lots of people work together to come up with the best ways to use donated organs, and I’m sure they’ve gone over these things in great detail.

      Are you an organ donor? Please, tell your health-care provider and your family your wishes.
      *******Edit: I was wrong about people with CF eventually devloping problems in transplanted lungs. The transplantation actually fixes the lung problems for them forever. Other things are still affected, but not the new lungs. Hooray!

    The name of a hereditary disorder/disease that affects the blood and immune system and starts with G?
    I was told the name of the disorder at one time and only remember it started with a G, it was a long and unusual name and the disorder involved the blood and/or immune system. It is hereditary and may affect fertility and recovering from simple colds and the flu.

    Is there an illness referred to as over active immune system?
    My brother in law’s boyfriend, a hypochondriac, now says he has an over active immune system. I briefly researched this on webmd and only came up with auto immune disorders, a list/group of immune disorders, with lupus topping the list. So, is there an illness also referred to as over active immune system?

    Can I become a police officer with an Immune Deficiency Disorder?
    I am about to begin college majoring in Law Enforcement, and I haven’t found a Police Officer that I felt comfortable asking the question to. I was wondering if there are any diseases that they will not let become police officers?

    I have an Immune Deficiency Disorder, and I receive infusions monthly.

    I’m looking for a police officer to answer, but anyone that knows for sure would be appreciated.
    It’s not contagious, either.

    1. Dog Lover

      Here is the deal…. you have to pass a comprehensive physical examination prior to employment.

      Any defect or disease that would prevent you from doing your job would disqualify you. If you require weekly infusions they would say you are to much of a health risk. It would be like if you had a weak heart. Its not contagious but it could effect you from doing your job at any time.

      Also, any agency with a pension will not hire you because the pension board will not accept you if you have a serious disease that would cause you to be a risk to the pension.

      What you need to do is contact what ever agency you are wanting to work for and ask them for a list of medical conditions that would be a disqualify issue.

    Vegetarians and others immune to the SWINE Flu?
    A friend told me she heard on the news earlier that scientists are saying vegetarian, vegans, and anyone who hasn’t consumed pork products in more than a year, seem to be immune to the swine flu virus. Something to do with the antibiotics the factory farms put in the pigs feed that caused the flu virus to mutate or become immune to traditional flu vaccine or something. Has anyone else heard this? regardless I’m going veg for sure!

    If you knew flu shots contain carcinogens and formaldehyde would you want one?
    I watch the Doctor’s Show on television and wanted to see what they are putting in flu shots and they listed carcinogens and formaldehyde just to name a few of the ingredients. The swine flu shot has mercury in it. What is the government trying to do? Poison us all? I already had endometrial cancer, I really don’t want cancer again. I believe I’ve had the swine flu and haven’t died yet!

      Gotta love the same answer that everyone above spilled out in different words. Even a lot of doctors themselves are greatly misinformed about the vaccines and think they are safe. With the current state of the world, the pharma and political agendas are intermixed. They are not going to tell you about big ill effects of the vaccines if it doesn’t suit their agenda. There is no ‘paranoia’ here, you’re just asking question and thinking for yourself. People just LOVE to say ‘oh you’re paranoid’ if you say something that goes outside their comfort zone and border of undestanding. B/c that’s how most of the public in North America is raised. To accept everything without questioning, and if they do question something, they are labeled as being ‘paranoid’ and their questions/opinions are ridiculed.
      Flu vaccines contain Thimerosal, mercury based preservative. There are studies that link the use of Thimerosal with an increase in auto-immune disorders in kids (such as Kawasaki, that generally happens in Japanese kids, but began to rise in US after the introduction of Thimerosal). But such studies are greatly suppressed and it’s hard to find scientists that will openly talk about such issues.
      Mass vaccination against flu is non-sense in my opinion and in opinion of many other professors and doctors I have talked to. I finished 4 years of university and currently starting my 3rd year of med school. So far, the only opinion that I’ve heard, while privatly talking to proffs and doctors, was that vaccines such as flu should be used with caution and only in those who are a higher risk of dying due to the actaul infection because of underlying conditions! Flu virus mutates every year, and there are more than one strain of it. So it’s virtually impossible to come up with a vaccine that will protect agains it 100%. A lot of people who get vaccinated still contract the flu, either from the shot itself, or from another strain of virus.
      Now, I’m not talking about ALL vaccines, and I’m not anti-vaccine myself. There are vaccines that I think are really necessary, such as DPT and the like. But to mass vaccinate people against something like flu, is non-sense. I bet more people contracted the flu just by waiting for hours in overcrowded rooms and in line ups just to get the shot they didn’t need!
      One of the current reason why there is such a huge hype about the H1N1 going on is because it brings fear to the public, and scared public is easier to manipulate especially if you say that you have a solution. It’s a form of brainwashing and training to do things without questioning them!
      You’re doing the right thing by thinking for yourself! Familiarize yourself with such issues and do research!
      All the best! 🙂

    Eating disorder and Nervous system disorder and diseases questions?
    I really need to know some of these things.

    Are there any type of diseases you can get from Eating disorders? If so, what do they do?

    If you have a Nervous System disorder, can it turn worse or can you get a disease from it?

    And have they found a disease for Huntington’s yet?

    I also need a list of the top ten deadliest diseases of 2011.

    I don’t have an eating or nervous system disorder, I just need to know for school.


    1. Sem Sti

      Types of diseases from eating disorders- any vitamin deficiency, malnutrition, and an increased susceptibility to infections (weakened immune system.

      A nervous system disorder is usualy a disease in itself, but i guess you mean something like if you get encephalitis you can suffer from amnesia? And CNS disorders can get worse

      Huntington’s is a disease. I assume you mean a cause. The cause of huntingtons is a genetic basis. It is caused by a trinucleotide repeat and is part of the trinucleotide repeat disorders. I suggest you also look into the huntingtin gene

      Deadliest diseases of 2011- hmmm… By deadliest do you mean common or most fatal? I know the most fatal ones but most are rare and probably wouldnt help you
