Clinical Case help!!! involved with complex III deficiency?

A 15 yr old girl was admitted to the hospital complaining of shortness of breath and of leg cramps after walking one block. She complained of low tolerance to exercise since age 7, but her condition worsened when at age 10 muscle weakness developed after exercise. Examination at the hospital showed that her vital signs were normal. There was mild muscle wasting and some weakness of all muscle groups. Lab studies showed normal plasma electrolytes except for bicarbonate which was reduced. When place on a treadmill, her pulse rate increased from 80 to 160 in 3 minutes, and her serum lactate levels increased 4X. Electron microscopy of muscle tissue revealed abnormal mitochondria, and deposits of glycogen and fat in the muscle cells. She was treated with a variety of vitamins, biotin, niacin, riboflavin, but none helped her condition. She was discharged as an outpatient and monitored periodically. At age 17, she had a episode of lactic acidosis and was readmitted to the hospital. Noninvasive analysis of muscle showed a creatine phosphate levels were low. Measurement of several mitochondrial enzymes in muscle showed an absence of cytochrome-c reductase activity. In addition, cytochrome-b was undetectable. The patient was treated with pharmacologic doses of menadione and ascorbic acid. Within 24 hrs of treatment, she showed improvement. Over the next year, her improvement was maintained. Her blood lactate levels remained elevated, although not as high as before treatment.

How to deal with the pain from Lovenox injections during pregnancy?

I have antithrombin iii deficiency, and have to take 80 ml of lovenox twice a day. I've been taken it since I was about three months pregnant. I'm 34 weeks now, and have a 5lb baby inside me, so if you can imagine my belly is way out there. I was told the best place to take the shot is on my love handles, but they hurt so bad. Does anyone have any tips on reducing the pain, or a less painful place to take the shots?

You can ask if you can have them put in your butt (if you have someone to do them for you). My husband did my shots for me. And that is where he was allowed to put them. I had to start them after a blood clot was discovered in my thigh at 26 weeks with my first child. And then through the whole pregnancy with my second child because of my Factor V Leiden.

I am pretty thin so I really never had enough fat on my stomach or my love handles to put the shots. So for me the rear was the best place. And sometimes it still hurt and burned but at least half the time it wasn't bad there. When I first started them I had them in my love handle and it was very, very painful there.

Some people I hear put them in their upper thigh. So you can ask your doctor about that.

And something else that helped- For me I tried to not move for about 15 minutes after each shot. That seemed to allow the Lovenox to move through me less painfully.

And my husband would pinch the area where the shot was placed and keep it pinched until the entire contents of the needle was in my body. Some nurses tell to you release the pinch well before then, but for me this greatly helped to maintain the pinch throughout.  (+ info)

What vitamin deficiency causes bumps and sores at the corners of your mouth?

My 16 month old daughter has small bumps on the inside corner of her mouth and a sore on the outside corner of one lip. Is that a sign of vitamin deficiency. She does not seem bothered by them.

Could be vitamin B12, but I am not certain.

What is the deficiency of food causes weight loss due to thyroid disorder?

I am taking methimozole along with multivitimins tablets for thyroid disorder for the last 10 days. I have been prescribed these medicines for two months. In addition to it, what food I should take more to meet the deficiency. I have no other health problem. I am regularly doing physical exercises for the last 10 years. I wonder how it happened? can any expert please explain?

Hyperthyroidism is characterized by hypermetabolism and elevated serum levels of free thyroid hormones. Symptoms are many but include tachycardia, fatigue, weight loss, and tremor. Diagnosis is clinical and with thyroid function tests. Treatment depends on cause.(Merck)
Major clinical signs of Hyperthyroidism include weight loss (often accompanied by a ravenous appetite), anxiety, intolerance to heat, fatigue, hair loss, weakness, hyperactivity, irritability, apathy, depression, polyuria, polydipsia, and sweating.(Wikipedia)
Methimazole is used to treat hyperthyroidism, a condition that occurs when the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone. It is also taken before thyroid surgery or radioactive iodine therapy.(MedlinePlus)
Methimazole and propylthiouracil are used to treat conditions in which the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone.
These medicines work by making it harder for the body to use iodine to make thyroid hormone. They do not block the effects of thyroid hormone that was made by the body before their use was begun.(MayoClinic).  (+ info)

How does iron deficiency affect the composition of blood?

I have a good friend who is diagnosed with iron deficiency, although she is getting better i want to know more about her sickness. Please answer.

Iron deficiency makes it harder for your blood to provide oxygen to your body. So you could feel tired or out of breath. It's not that uncommon in women. I think, but do not know, that's it's because they have to replace the menstrual loss every month. There could be other more serious problems causing the deficiency - ask your friend about the diagnosis.

Iron-poor blood is less dense than iron-rich. When you donate blood, they'll put a drop into a special solution to see if it sinks. If it floats, there isn't enough iron. If it sinks like a rock, there's plenty.  (+ info)

What deficiency is it when you see bright dots flying in front of your eyes?

I mean when I are just not exactly looking at anythign in particular but you see bright dots/sparks flying away near your line of vision.

Weird? I thought so.But I figured this is a kind of deficiency.I remembered seeing this during pregnancy.I was anaemic then?Does this mean I am anaemic?


I thought floaters were usually dark.
My Mom had the sparks once and was told to get to a Dr. to have her eyes checked immediately. Sometimes this is an indication of something happening within your eye. I can't remember for sure but I think it has something to do with the retina separating?
Anyhow....check it out. Perhaps it is more substantial at my mom's age, but it's better to be safe then sorry!
All the best!  (+ info)

What deficiency may be the cause of my strange food craving?

I am wondering if anyone knows if this is a sign of a vitamin and/or mineral deficiency, and if so which ones? Lately, I've had this thing for English muffins topped with cream cheese and pickles??? Maybe just stress? I'm sure I'm not pregnant (on birth control), but I have heard that strange food cravings can mean that your body is lacking something. Does anyone know?

stress can be a big factor, yes. You may also not be consuming enough fats or sugar, but this doesn't mean you have to overdo it. Did you eat enough in the past days?  (+ info)

What makes iron deficiency anaemia different to other types of anaemia?

what is special about it to make it 'iron deficiency' anaemia? What are other types of anaemia like?

Ronnie - Iron is needed in the body to make hemoglobin which gives blood the red color and allows the red blood cells (RBC) to carry oxygen to all body tissues. The most common cause of anemia is a deficiency of iron in the diet. It can also be caused by a vegetarian diet (with no red meat) or by loss of blood from bleeding of any cause. Sometimes iron may be plentiful in the normal bone marrow where RBCs are made, but the body is 8unable to use the excess iron to make RBCs. Other types of anemia exist. In old age, the number of RBCs made in the bone marrow is replaced by fibrous tissue and anemia of aging occurs. Some chemicals can cause a break-up of normal RBCs (a hemolytic anemia). Some genetic or hereditary causes include sickle cell anemia or thalassemia. Some infections cause anemia like malaria where the parasite invades and destroys red cells. So, really, the only thing that makes iron-deficiency anemia different is that it is the most common and most-talked about type of anemia. Fortunately, it is also the easiest to treat successfully.  (+ info)
