Description

Scleroderma is a group of autoimmune diseases that may result inchanges to the skin, blood vessels, muscles, and internal organs.The disease can be either localized to the skin or involve otherorgans in addition to the skin. Symptoms may include areas ofthickened skin, stiffness, feeling tired, and poor blood flow tothe fingers or toes with cold exposure. One form of the condition,known as CREST syndrome, classically results in calcium deposits,Raynaud's syndrome, esophageal problems, thickening of the skin ofthe fingers and toes, and areas of small dilated blood vessels. Thecause is unknown. Risk factors include family history, certaingenetic factors, and exposure to silica. The underlying mechanisminvolves the abnormal growth of connective tissue which is believedto occur as a result of the body's immune system attacking healthytissues. Diagnosis is typically based on a persons symptoms and maybe supported by a skin biopsy or blood tests.

Hypothyroidism Disease 1.0.0 APK
bedieman
Hypothyroidism, also called underactive thyroid or low thyroid, isa common disorder of the endocrine system in which the thyroidgland does not produce enough thyroid hormone. It can cause anumber of symptoms, such as poor ability to tolerate cold, afeeling of tiredness, constipation, depression, and weight gain.Occasionally there may be swelling of the front part of the neckdue to goitre. Untreated hypothyroidism during pregnancy can leadto delays in growth and intellectual development in the baby, whichis called cretinism. Worldwide, too little iodine in the diet isthe most common cause of hypothyroidism. In countries with enoughiodine in the diet, the most common cause of hypothyroidism is theautoimmune condition Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Less common causesinclude: previous treatment with radioactive iodine, injury to thehypothalamus or the anterior pituitary gland, certain medications,a lack of a functioning thyroid at birth, or previous thyroidsurgery. The diagnosis of hypothyroidism, when suspected, can beconfirmed with blood tests measuring thyroid-stimulating hormone(TSH) and thyroxine levels.
Cryptosporidium Disease 1.0.0 APK
bedieman
Cryptosporidiosis, also known as crypto, is a parasitic diseasecaused by Cryptosporidium, a genus of protozoan parasites in thephylum Apicomplexa. It affects the distal small intestine and canaffect the respiratory tract in both immunocompetent (i.e.,individuals with a normal functioning immune system) andimmunocompromised (e.g., persons with HIV/AIDS or autoimmunedisorders) individuals, resulting in watery diarrhea with orwithout an unexplained cough. In immunocompromised individuals, thesymptoms are particularly severe and can be fatal. It is primarilyspread through the fecal-oral route, often through contaminatedwater; recent evidence suggests that it can also be transmitted viafomites in respiratory secretions. Cryptosporidium is the organismmost commonly isolated in HIV-positive patients presenting withdiarrhea.[medical citation needed] Despite not being identifieduntil 1976, it is one of the most common waterborne diseases and isfound worldwide. The parasite is transmitted by environmentallyhardy microbial cysts (oocysts) that, once ingested, sporozoiteswithin oocysts excyst (i.e., are released) and result in aninfection of intestinal epithelial tissue.
Kyphosis Disease 1.0.0 APK
bedieman
Kyphosis (from Greek κυφός kyphos, a hump) is an abnormallyexcessive convex kyphotic curvature of the spine as it occurs inthe cervical, thoracic and sacral regions. (Abnormal inward concavelordotic curving of the cervical and lumbar regions of the spine iscalled lordosis.) Kyphosis can be called roundback or Kelso'shunchback. It can result from degenerative diseases such asarthritis; developmental problems, most commonly Scheuermann'sdisease; osteoporosis with compression fractures of the vertebra;multiple myeloma or trauma. A normal thoracic spine extends fromthe 1st to the 12th vertebra and should have a slight kyphoticangle, ranging from 20° to 45°. When the "roundness" of the upperspine increases past 45° it is called kyphosis or "hyperkyphosis".Scheuermann's kyphosis is the most classic form of hyperkyphosisand is the result of wedged vertebrae that develop duringadolescence. The cause is not currently known and the conditionappears to be multifactorial and is seen more frequently in malesthan females. In the sense of a deformity, it is the pathologicalcurving of the spine, where parts of the spinal column lose some orall of their lordotic profile. This causes a bowing of the back,seen as a slouching posture.
Crohns Disease 1.0.0 APK

Crohn's disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) thatmay affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract from mouth toanus. Signs and symptoms often include abdominal pain, diarrhea(which may be bloody if inflammation is severe), fever, and weightloss. Other complications may occur outside the gastrointestinaltract and include anemia, skin rashes, arthritis, inflammation ofthe eye, and tiredness. The skin rashes may be due to infections aswell as pyoderma gangrenosum or erythema nodosum. Bowel obstructionalso commonly occurs and those with the disease are at greater riskof bowel cancer.

Hypercalcemia Disease 1.0.0 APK
bedieman
Hypercalcaemia, also spelled hypercalcemia, is a high calcium(Ca2+) level in the blood serum. The normal range is 2.1–2.6 mmol/L(8.8–10.7 mg/dL, 4.3–5.2 mEq/L) with levels greater than 2.6 mmol/Ldefined as hypercalcemia.Those with a mild increase that hasdeveloped slowly typically have no symptoms. In those with greaterlevels or rapid onset, symptoms may include abdominal pain, bonepain, confusion, depression, weakness, kidney stones, or anabnormal heart rhythm including cardiac arrest. Most cases are dueto primary hyperparathyroidism or cancer. Other causes includesarcoidosis, tuberculosis, Paget disease, multiple endocrineneoplasia (MEN), vitamin D toxicity, familial hypocalciurichypercalcaemia, and certain medications such as lithium andhydrochlorothiazide. Diagnosis should generally include either acorrected calcium or ionized calcium level and be confirmed after aweek. Specific changes, such as a shortened QT interval, may beseen on an electrocardiogram (ECG).
Bipolar Disorder 1.0.0 APK
bedieman
Bipolar disorder, previously known as manic depression, is a mentaldisorder that causes periods of depression and periods of elevatedmood. The elevated mood is significant and is known as mania orhypomania, depending on its severity, or whether symptoms ofpsychosis are present. During mania, an individual behaves or feelsabnormally energetic, happy, or irritable. Individuals often makepoorly thought out decisions with little regard to theconsequences. The need for sleep is usually reduced during manicphases. During periods of depression, there may be crying, anegative outlook on life, and poor eye contact with others. Therisk of suicide among those with the illness is high at greaterthan 6 percent over 20 years, while self-harm occurs in 30–40percent. Other mental health issues such as anxiety disorders andsubstance use disorder are commonly associated.
Endometrial Cancer 1.0.0 APK
bedieman
Endometrial cancer is a cancer that arises from the endometrium(the lining of the uterus or womb). It is the result of theabnormal growth of cells that have the ability to invade or spreadto other parts of the body. The first sign is most often vaginalbleeding not associated with a menstrual period.bOther symptomsinclude pain with urination, pain during sexual intercourse, orpelvic pain. Endometrial cancer occurs most commonly aftermenopause. Approximately 40% of cases are related to obesity.Endometrial cancer is also associated with excessive estrogenexposure, high blood pressure and diabetes. Whereas taking estrogenalone increases the risk of endometrial cancer, taking bothestrogen and a progestogen in combination, as in most birth controlpills, decreases the risk. Between two and five percent of casesare related to genes inherited from the parents. Endometrial canceris sometimes loosely referred to as "uterine cancer", although itis distinct from other forms of uterine cancer such as cervicalcancer, uterine sarcoma, and trophoblastic disease. The mostfrequent type of endometrial cancer is endometrioid carcinoma,which accounts for more than 80% of cases. Endometrial cancer iscommonly diagnosed by endometrial biopsy or by taking samplesduring a procedure known as dilation and curettage. A pap smear isnot typically sufficient to show endometrial cancer. Regularscreening in those at normal risk is not called for.
