What is tubular nephrosis?

I need detailed information on adult tubular nephrosis. Most importantly does it cause pain? What tests can determine if this is affecting someone? Any other information is desired also.

It is a kidney disease characterized by lesions of the epithelial lining of the renal tubules, resulting in problems with the filtration function. It causes the appearance of large amounts of protein in the urine. It can be cause by a reaction to toxins, diabetes, collagen disease and other end-stage kidney diseases. The major symptom is massive edema. Corticosteroid therapy has been successful in treating certain forms of the disease.  (+ info)

one off my fnd got complete body check up, diagnosed with left kidney nephrosis & right kidney absolutely good

we group of fnds visited hospital for routine health check up, after undergoing all the tests, ultra sound shows left kidney some problem, later as they advice to take MRI they confirmed that hydronephrosis of left kidney, further confirmation isotope study is done to reveal in detail funtioning of both kidneys, the result showed left not at all functioning, right one 100% working............

what precautions he should take, wat r the feature symptoms he should keep in mind. wat is reason behind loss of left kidney.......... etc.

perhaps you should put this question to a doctor?

sounds like a good idea to me  (+ info)

Why are we so worried about terrorists when...?

statistics show we are more likely to die from a bolt of lightening than from a terrorist act.

Heart disease: 654,092
Cancer: 550,270
Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 150,147
Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 123,884
Accidents (unintentional injuries): 108,694
Diabetes: 72,815
Alzheimer's disease: 65,829
Influenza/Pneumonia: 61,472
Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 42,762
Septicemia: 33,464

Consider those statistics. These don't even include highway deaths(abt 40k) per year. If we are so worried about death, wouldn't our monies be better spent on educating people about eating their vegetables than waging a war in iraq(which I support)? Thinking along these lines has given me a new perspective on the war. I think also, that i'd much rather die from an explosion than from chronic heart disease.

It has far more sweeping affect than merely "death toll".

A catastrophic terrorist attack can paralyze a nation on all operative levels and cause an economic collapse. It could plummet the entire U.S. economy into a radical tail spin causing runaway business bankruptcies, a stock market crash could ensue; the dollar would be worthless; you would loose your job; employment would vaporize; prices for goods would escalate from subsequent hyper-inflation; you and your family could starve; not having employment you could be evicted from your rental or default on your mortgage and loose your home; all economic and financial stability would evaporate; you would have to default on your SUV payments; homelessness would skyrocket; consumer confidence will not exist; tax money and federal funds would deplete, city infrastructure would go into disrepair; public transit would cease; the electrical grid would experience controlled periodic “brown-outs”; rationing of everything would be the order of the day; many things you take for granted simply will be compromised or not be available; sanitation would be jeopardized; communical diseases due to unsanitary conditions would flourish infecting many; tap water would have to be boiled before drinking it; antibiotic banks could drain from the demand; many infected people could die; civil unrest would most likely ravage the nation; rampant murder and theft in order to survive would mushroom; and Marshall Law would be declared, meaning all your freedoms would be nullified, and the freedom to move about would completely cease.

So as you can see, death toll from a catastrophic terrorist attack is merely the tip of the iceberg.

Additionally, we should be worried about terrorists because all they need to do is strategically deposit a container of the Ebola virus into the water supply of a U.S. city, say, Philadelphia, and you can expect near “national extinction”. The initial flu-like symptoms would not be detected for at least a week and a half, which within that period would have allowed contamination of at least 1 million people. It is an airborne disease, so exponentially, additional millions of people would contract the incurable virus just by breathing the same air also breathed by the initially contaminated victims. The entire Eastern Seaboard would have to be quarantined, and travel to and fro from this area would have to be completely terminated, including the food supply. The epidemic could transform into a national spreading pandemic of diabolical and unbelievable proportions if the necessary safeguards are not deployed in an adroit and timely manner. The countless corpses would have to be incinerated. If it reaches uncontrollable levels the President would have to resort to the “worse case scenario solution”, the detonation of strategically located low-grade nuclear tactical devices to irradiate the Ebola contaminated environment and air, which would be the only solution able to neutralize the virus. This in turn would kill tens of millions of more Americans from radiation sickness, but would be absolutely essential in order to save and salvage what is left of the nation and the national populous.  (+ info)

His prognosis is poor at this time.  (+ info)

eating habits and working out...? doctors plz?

if one receives no aminoacids or proteins at all, and works out, will they be building muscles? muscles need aminoacids to grow but working out means they must grow stronger, right? is lipoid tissue the energy source here?

For building muscles, you need both. When you're training, you're actually "destroying" your muscles by the exercises. When you're recovering (remind to take at least a couple of days rest, when you're building muscles), that's the moment the muscles are being build. By building the muscles, you need something from which your body can build the muscles (proteins).
Unfortunately, I'm no doctor :-( But I hope this helps. :-)  (+ info)
