Okay you know how if your about 40 years old and if you don't use your muscle you get atrophy? Well, my question is if your a teenager around 17, 18 and up can you get atrophy too if you don't ever use your muscles? But won't you just get fat?!
Lol. This is a silly question, but I was wondering.

fat and muscle atrophy are 2 differnet things. getting fat usually is not far from other aspects of lazy life, but un-related to atrophy specifically.  (+ info)

How long does it take for leg muscles to atrophy?

I used to bike as fast as I possibly could on the highest gear of my racing bike, and now i have huge thigh muscles I want to get rid of. If I stop biking so furiously and continue running, will the muscles still atrophy?

Also, does the position of the bike side have anything to do with how the leg muscles develop?

What are some ways you can cure bone atrophy? As in surgical procedures?

I need help with this; in a story i am writing someone has bone atrophy and i have no clue where to find information on a cure or surgical procedure.

Please describe it and then put a link below it for where you got your information! THanks a ton!

There is no specific surgical procedure for bone atrophy (more or less the same thing as osteoporosis). Loss of bone density is managed by altering mineral balance in blood, which is affected by things such as kidney function, hormone levels, diet, exercise, and absorption characteristics of the intestines. Specific problems caused by osteoporosis can be fixed by surgery - spinal surgeries and hip replacements are two examples.  (+ info)

What is the prognosis for Cerebral Atrophy found in my 68y/o husband, from Malnutrition?

He has developed the Malnutrition after being treated by drug therapy for long standing Depression. The Cerebral Atrophy was found in a CT Scan at the same time Bladder Cancer was found. The Bladder Cancer was successfully treated, but we were not informed of the Cerebral Atrophy untill he went to the Emergency Room in respiratory distress. Everything else checked out as normal. He is a recovering alcoholic, has been clean for 20 years, but has abused pain medication and tranquilizers since.

Only his doctors would be able to answer that question accurately.  (+ info)

Is it true that vegan diet causes your muscles to atrophy?

I was reading a medical journal that said a vegan diet causes muscles to atrophy. It said the lack of complete proteins in a vegan diet causes muscles to waste away. Is this why vegans lack the muscle tone of someone who is eating a well balanced diet?
andielep and Princess, I have reported you both.

Let me guess. You are, in fact, Foxhunter Guy. Your account was closed down by Yahoo and so you opened a new one with a new name.


EDIT- Reported me and andielep for what?! Lol. You make me laugh. Which is amazing, considering all the muscles laughter uses, and I haven't eaten meat in 14 years. I'm a freakin' miracle child, I am.  (+ info)

Is it possible to have something like POS which is caused from too much estrogen, and vaginal atrophy too?

If vaginal atrophy is from too little estrogen and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is from too much estrogen, is it possible to have them both?

PCOS is a group of symptoms and not everyone has every symptom. In some PCOS women, they will have a lowered level of estrogen and elevated male hormone, which can cause excess facial and body hair. There are blood tests and other tests to determine PCOS.  (+ info)

Is there any cure or treatment now for optic nerve atrophy?

I've had optic nerve atrophy ever since I was a boy and I'm wondering if there is any cure. I've seen from western websties that there is no treatment but what about eastern viewpoints or other viewpoints. My condition is stable and with glasses corrected in both eyes is 20/200. I am still pronounced legally blind by opthamologists and they said that there is nothing that can be done and it won't get any worse but the downside is that it can't get any better they told me. I suffer from eye strain and myopia & I get terrible headaches. I tried accupuncture but it doesn't help (maybe headaches for about a year if I take 10 treatments). I heard there is electrical stimulation but I am skeptical and I don't know if herbs might work or not because I tried one time & nothing happened. Do you know if there is any cure or treatment possiblity or am I going to have to go through life blind the rest of my life? If there is anything, PLEASE HELP, PLEASE HELP!! I want to see & drive a car one day.

I'll pray for you....  (+ info)
