what diseases are caused by the deficiency of calcium?

Calcium is a important cation of the body so it has got vast functions and if it is deficient then leads to several disorders

2) Osteomalcia in adults ( explaination as above.)
3) Osteoporesis ( explaination as above.)
4) Paget disease
5) Muscular disorders like tetany
6) Skin disordes like tanning of skin

Beside these things Ca play imp. role in signal transduction so may affect many enzymes and hormones leading to various other disorders.  (+ info)

i have a report

scurvey - lack of vitamin C

can i have examples of inherited diseases, deficiency diseases, infectious diseases and hormonal diseases?

please let me know the categories of pellagra,goiter,diptheria and pertussis.

thanks :)

Diptheria and pertussis are infectious diseases as are h1n1, measles, chicken pox, bubonic plague. Pellagra is a deficiency disease, as is Kwashiorkor . Goiter and Diabetes are hormonal disease. Inherited diseases are hemophilia and Tay Sachs.  (+ info)

How should Carnitine Deficiency be treated in infants?

My cousin's daughter has been diagnosed with Acid Reflux disease, some muscle diseases that the doctors don't know what they are yet and Carnitine Deficiency. She's on some meds for these problems. She has a Mic button in her stomach to eat with because she doesn't eat right. She throws up a lot and it comes out of her mic button as well. Can anyone tell me what the normal treatment for carnitine deficiency is??

I copy this abstract for you, from the UCSF, Children's Hospital Central California, 9300 Valley Children's Place, Madera, CA 93638, USA
Abstract Summary: Carnitine deficiency is a secondary complication of many inborn errors of metabolism. Pharmacological treatment with carnitine not only corrects the deficiency, it facilitates removal of accumulating toxic acyl intermediates and the generation of mitochondrial free coenzyme A (CoA). The United States Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) approved the use of carnitine for the treatment of inborn errors of metabolism in 1992. This approval was based on retrospective chart analysis of 90 patients, with 18 in the untreated cohort and 72 in the treated cohort. Efficacy was evaluated on the basis of clinical and biochemical findings. Compelling data included increased excretion of disease-specific acylcarnitine derivatives in a dose–response relationship, decreased levels of metabolites in the blood, and improved clinical status with decreased hospitalization frequency, improved growth and significantly lower mortality rates as compared to historical controls. Complications of carnitine treatment were few, with gastrointestinal disturbances and odour being the most frequent. No laboratory or clinical safety issues were identified. Intravenous carnitine preparations were also approved for treatment of secondary carnitine deficiency. Since only 25% of enteral carnitine is absorbed and gastrointestinal tolerance of high doses is poor, parenteral carnitine treatment is an appealing alternative therapeutic approach. In 7 patients treated long term with high-dose weekly to daily venous boluses of parenteral carnitine through a subcutaneous venous port, benefits included decreased frequency of decompensations, improved growth, improved muscle strength and decreased reliance on medical foods with liberalization of protein intake. Port infections were the most troubling complication. Theoretical concerns continue to be voiced that carnitine might result in fatal arrhythmias in patients with long-chain fat metabolism defects. No published clinical studies substantiate these concerns. Carnitine treatment of inborn errors of metabolism is a safe and integral part of the treatment regime for these disorders.
