can future scientists find medicine for 'ACQUIRED IMMUNE DEFICIENCY SYNDROME(AIDS)'?


And please say your answer with a reason
----------

Science has not been able to come up with a cure for the common cold, let alone the HIV virus. Current treatments delay the onset of AIDS, but doesnt really "cure" you.

Perhaps future scientists can, gene therapy holds a lot of promise. Those promises still have yet to be delivered. However, ethical and legal issues have to be tackled first before any sort of "cure" an go worldwide.  (+ info)

Wat is the remedy for a pinched nerve or carpal tunnel syndrome (sp) Is it cos of deficiency of vitamin B-12?


You asked the right guy. I have pinched nerves all the time, had them since the late 70's, in fact. A pinched nerve is usually based in the spinal column as a result of two or more vertebrae becoming subluxated or mis-aligned. The usual relief for myself is to have the spine manipulated by a chiropractor or general physician to get the vertebrae off of the nerve that is affected.

I also have corpal tunnel syndrome and that is different. For all my working career I used to set up and run machinery and had to rely on strong wrists and hands in order to perform at a high level. Corpal tunnel affects many people in jobs that require repetitive motion.

I can't say one way or the other whether B-12 contributes to either condition, I don't recall ever being asked about my intake of such in all the visits I have had, so I doubt that it has any significant contributing factors about it.  (+ info)

Hyperthyroidism is characterized by hypermetabolism and elevated serum levels of free thyroid hormones. Symptoms are many but include tachycardia, fatigue, weight loss, and tremor. Diagnosis is clinical and with thyroid function tests. Treatment depends on cause.(Merck)
Major clinical signs of Hyperthyroidism include weight loss (often accompanied by a ravenous appetite), anxiety, intolerance to heat, fatigue, hair loss, weakness, hyperactivity, irritability, apathy, depression, polyuria, polydipsia, and sweating.(Wikipedia)
Methimazole is used to treat hyperthyroidism, a condition that occurs when the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone. It is also taken before thyroid surgery or radioactive iodine therapy.(MedlinePlus)
Methimazole and propylthiouracil are used to treat conditions in which the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone.
These medicines work by making it harder for the body to use iodine to make thyroid hormone. They do not block the effects of thyroid hormone that was made by the body before their use was begun.(MayoClinic).  (+ info)

How does iron deficiency affect the composition of blood?


I have a good friend who is diagnosed with iron deficiency, although she is getting better i want to know more about her sickness. Please answer.
----------

Iron deficiency makes it harder for your blood to provide oxygen to your body. So you could feel tired or out of breath. It's not that uncommon in women. I think, but do not know, that's it's because they have to replace the menstrual loss every month. There could be other more serious problems causing the deficiency - ask your friend about the diagnosis.

Iron-poor blood is less dense than iron-rich. When you donate blood, they'll put a drop into a special solution to see if it sinks. If it floats, there isn't enough iron. If it sinks like a rock, there's plenty.  (+ info)

What deficiency is it when you see bright dots flying in front of your eyes?


I mean when I are just not exactly looking at anythign in particular but you see bright dots/sparks flying away near your line of vision.

Weird? I thought so.But I figured this is a kind of deficiency.I remembered seeing this during pregnancy.I was anaemic then?Does this mean I am anaemic?

April.
----------

I thought floaters were usually dark.
My Mom had the sparks once and was told to get to a Dr. to have her eyes checked immediately. Sometimes this is an indication of something happening within your eye. I can't remember for sure but I think it has something to do with the retina separating?
Anyhow....check it out. Perhaps it is more substantial at my mom's age, but it's better to be safe then sorry!
All the best!  (+ info)

What deficiency may be the cause of my strange food craving?


I am wondering if anyone knows if this is a sign of a vitamin and/or mineral deficiency, and if so which ones? Lately, I've had this thing for English muffins topped with cream cheese and pickles??? Maybe just stress? I'm sure I'm not pregnant (on birth control), but I have heard that strange food cravings can mean that your body is lacking something. Does anyone know?
----------

stress can be a big factor, yes. You may also not be consuming enough fats or sugar, but this doesn't mean you have to overdo it. Did you eat enough in the past days?  (+ info)

What makes iron deficiency anaemia different to other types of anaemia?


what is special about it to make it 'iron deficiency' anaemia? What are other types of anaemia like?
----------

Ronnie - Iron is needed in the body to make hemoglobin which gives blood the red color and allows the red blood cells (RBC) to carry oxygen to all body tissues. The most common cause of anemia is a deficiency of iron in the diet. It can also be caused by a vegetarian diet (with no red meat) or by loss of blood from bleeding of any cause. Sometimes iron may be plentiful in the normal bone marrow where RBCs are made, but the body is 8unable to use the excess iron to make RBCs. Other types of anemia exist. In old age, the number of RBCs made in the bone marrow is replaced by fibrous tissue and anemia of aging occurs. Some chemicals can cause a break-up of normal RBCs (a hemolytic anemia). Some genetic or hereditary causes include sickle cell anemia or thalassemia. Some infections cause anemia like malaria where the parasite invades and destroys red cells. So, really, the only thing that makes iron-deficiency anemia different is that it is the most common and most-talked about type of anemia. Fortunately, it is also the easiest to treat successfully.  (+ info)
