bone diseases?


Uhhh...WHATS THE QUESTION?  (+ info)

What do hormonal imbalances have to do with the onset of metabolic bone disease?


In humans!!
----------

The level of calcium in the blood is regulated by two hormones PTH (Parathyroid Hormone) from the parathyroid gland and Calcitonin which is produced by the thyroid gland.

If this regulatory mechanism is disrupted then metabolic bone disease can occur.

The picture is complicated in that bone resorption and formation is also influenced by other hormones, such as oestrogen, GH (Growth Hormone) and glucocorticoids.  (+ info)

What are systemic diseases that cause alveolar bone loss?


I have been slowly losing bone in my jaw over many years. I do not have gum disease. My dentists are perplexed. Despite getting my teeth cleaned 4X a year, they have not been able to control it. I do have a significant open bite, but x-rays do not show evidence of a traumatic occlusion. I have recently seen an endocrinologist to explore systemic causes of bone loss. I have so far ruled out sarcoidosis and osteoporosis. Are there any other diseases I should be screened for? I did find out that I was vitamin D deficient so am taking vitamin d supplements. There are no signs of inflammation on my gums. They are pink and firm.
No, I am not on fosamax. I had a dexascan and my numbers are fine. What type of autoimmune disease causes you to be allergic to your own teeth?
----------

It could be wisdom teeth coming in combined with lack of calcium/vitamin D that could cause the jaw to recede which together cause teeth compression and bite disortions. A bite disortion will cause the teeth to bite down crocked causing jaw resession from the teeth as well as could cause loose teeth or even pockets of jaw bone to disappear around the teeth roots. I had this situation and I am trying hard to save two incisor teeth. 1000mg Vitamin D daily. 1000mg calcium daily. Exercise is most important for your body will only process food that the body demands from continued exercise. Stop drinking coffe or soda. No more candy/sugar. Drink Orange Juice in morning, milk in morning and night. Rinse/Brush after each meal, and before bed. Hydrate your body with water after exercise. Change the pillow case you sleep on at least each week. Might also change pillows for this could be a nightly source or irritation.
Shower before bedtime too.  (+ info)

What is the connection between respiratoy diseases and metabolic rate?!?


Subquestions:
1) How is respiratory disease a consequence of our metabolic rate?
2) What would make you more prone to resp diseases: high or low metabolic rates?
3) What're the common resp diseases that affect metabolic rates?
Questions 2 and 3 are different in a way that in 2 i'm asking the metabolic rate that would make you prone to resp disease and in 3 i'm asking the resp diseases that would change/affect your metabolic rate
----------

I don't know the answers to all the questions but I do have one for 3.
3. Cystic Fibrosis affects the metabolic rate because since the digestive system is not normal, malnutrition can occur. Also with the lungs having to work extra hard (such as exercising or even just living with damaged lungs) more calories are burned without extra activity. People who have CF need 110 to 200% more calories than the average child and adult.  (+ info)

Can vegetarians have issues with bone loss/bone diseases?


Recently I have heard on tv that being vegetarian may not be as healthy as some people think because vegetarians lack certain nutrients that cause them to develop certain bone problems.

Is this true?
----------

Sounds like an infomercial run by the dairy industry. Humans were not intended to drink the breast milk of another animal, or drink breast milk all out lives.  (+ info)

What are two bone diseases that a person can get if they never went out into the sun or if they?


did they always covered themselves and they also never took any dietary supplements to compensate for this.
----------

Two diseases? How did you come to know that it causes two diseases?
Basically morning (early) sun light has Vitamin - D so when we rise up early or go out for walk or any purpose, we absorb Vit. D from sunlight which helps in Calcium absorption. Calcium is very essential for the development and growth of bones (one of its benefits). On the other hand, if you don't, it can lead to calcium deficiency which ultimately causes osteoporosis.  (+ info)
