(In a human) I would love answers no longer than a paragraph or two please that are relatively easy to understand but not preschool as i have some basic understanding. Thanks so much.

Well, the medulla is the place where the urine is concentrated to an osmotic strength higher than the blood plasma; that would no longer work, so urine could maximally have the osmotic strength of blood plasma. As long as one drinks enough, that would not be so much of a problem.  (+ info)

What is so bad about having down syndrome?

I think people are a lot colder than they want you to believe. Too many pregnancies prediagnosed with down syndrome are terminated! Doctors tell people that their kid will be like some animal and people believe them. I've met my share of people with down syndrome, and they all seem pretty human to me. On top of that, they were all decent folks, which is a lot more than I can say for the general population. And how does knowing that unborn children are purged because of down syndrome affect those who were born and have down syndrome?

WOW!! I'm so glad that there are other people who's lives have been touched as mine has. See when I was 28 I gave birth to twin girls and one of them was born with Mosaic down syndrome. Of course, I didn't know much about it til now....and yes I was shocked. They are 14 months old now, and such a blessing as well as my two boys. My daughter is about 4 months behind in her milestones, but she is always so happy! Out of all my kids she is the easiest to handle.

It's always nice to have other people, who see that they are more alike, then different from the rest of us.  (+ info)

What is the syndrome called when you cannot feel physical pain?

I remember watching a show a long time ago, and this one little girl was born with a syndrome where she could never feel pain. If she fell on the floor and cut her knee, she wouldn't cry, whereas most children would.

What is this called? Is it a syndrome? Is it a medical condition? I just want to know what it's called, and I can do the research on it.

It is for a story I am writing but I don't entirely know what it is.

It's called "congenital insensitivity to pain"  (+ info)

Lateral release dies it work and how much would it cost if private?

I am a 21 year old currently on the waiting list for a lateral release i am in agony and struggling to sleep. I work in an office and sit at a desk all day which really doesnt help. Does anyone have any idea how much it would be to go private? And does anyone have any advice on wat might help me at the moment?

By lateral release I am assuming you mean you have a knee problem?
There are more conservative options as this treatment is the end of the line. If you found an osteopath or physio that specialises in knees you may do better and it is much cheaper than orthopaedic surgeons if you are paying privately. In terms of cost for the procedure it depends which hospital you use and how much rehab you need afterwards but probably more than £5k and less than £20k

These tracking problems can be painful but can be managed effectively if they are not too severe and while the procedure does work it was often overused in the past.
Short term measures (other than osteopaths or physios) are ice and medication which i imagine you have tried already.   (+ info)

What syndrome would someone have that the doctor would need to put them on bloodthinners?

There are several, but the first that comes to mind is Factor-V (five).  (+ info)

What is the syndrome where boys usually grow more than average?

I think it is Jacobs syndome.. XYY syndrome.. but wikipedia says that is only a little more than average. what is the only where they get really big ?

Yes it is called gigantism. It is caused by a tumour or either a chromosome disorder. Another thing that causes gigantism is the inability to inhib the GH (growth hormone) when it is produced. This is why the people who have it get very TALL.  (+ info)
