What is the connection between respiratoy diseases and metabolic rate?!?

1) How is respiratory disease a consequence of our metabolic rate?
2) What would make you more prone to resp diseases: high or low metabolic rates?
3) What're the common resp diseases that affect metabolic rates?
Questions 2 and 3 are different in a way that in 2 i'm asking the metabolic rate that would make you prone to resp disease and in 3 i'm asking the resp diseases that would change/affect your metabolic rate

I don't know the answers to all the questions but I do have one for 3.
3. Cystic Fibrosis affects the metabolic rate because since the digestive system is not normal, malnutrition can occur. Also with the lungs having to work extra hard (such as exercising or even just living with damaged lungs) more calories are burned without extra activity. People who have CF need 110 to 200% more calories than the average child and adult.  (+ info)

why are there so many metabolic disease and few doctors?

i live in iran and i know a little girl who has metabolic disorder .she is 10 months and suffer from lack of muscle tune .she doesnot gain weight and cannot eat well . the doctors says that she has metabolic disease but they cannot do enything for her there are very good doctors in iran but metabolic doctors are rare .i want to know that is it a new branch of medicine ? or there is some difficulties with distinguishing these diseases?

unfortunately, metabolic diseases are somewhat modern and it is more of a genetic disease and genetic disease is still hard to deal with and takes years to study .Even in western society , metabolic diseases are still hard to deal with, it is caused by inborn errors of metabolism which lead to improper or missing enzymes that are required in breaking down certain substances/chemicals in the body ( fat , protein, glucose , amino acid ). In this case , the girl may have defective enzymes that is required to break down amino acid and glucose as these two are needed for muscle growth and integrity

The girl may to have muscular dystrophy which cause loss of muscle integrity leading to progressive loss of strength and greatly decrased life span This is genetic....I am very sorry as little can be done for the girl as researches on genetically muscular dystrophy are still underway.  (+ info)

what are examples of metabolic diseases?

My son suffers from a rare metabolic disorder called Medium Chain Acyl CoA Dehydrogenase (MCAD). It is a fatty oxidation disorder where his body cannot take stored fat and turn it into energy. You can learn more at www.fodsupport.org.  (+ info)

Does anybody know any non contagious diseases?

I'm working on one of my college assignments and the quest says explain other conditions that are classified as disease although not contagious or infectious which include metabolic or diet induced diseases (two diseases). Any help would be great.

ME is not contagious.  (+ info)

what are some metabolic diseases?

My son suffers from a rare metabolic disorder called Medium Chain Acyl CoA Dehydrogenase (MCAD). It is a fatty oxidation disorder where his body cannot take stored fat and turn it into energy. You can learn more at www.fodsupport.org. There are also other forms of the fatty oxidation disorders such as SCAD, LCHAD, and VLCAD.

Organic Acidemia Disorders are also metabolic, I believe. You can google the term to learn more about them.

What do hormonal imbalances have to do with the onset of metabolic bone disease?

In humans!!

The level of calcium in the blood is regulated by two hormones PTH (Parathyroid Hormone) from the parathyroid gland and Calcitonin which is produced by the thyroid gland.

If this regulatory mechanism is disrupted then metabolic bone disease can occur.

The picture is complicated in that bone resorption and formation is also influenced by other hormones, such as oestrogen, GH (Growth Hormone) and glucocorticoids.  (+ info)

What is a metabolic disease that shows symptoms on the skin?

I am not sure what exactly you mean by a metabolic disease, but I will try to answer this as best as I can. Insulin resistance and Type II Diabetes can be associated with a condition called acanthosis nigricans. This is a rash usually in the neck region that is described as velvety like. Another example is with metabolic diseases known as the porphyrias. There are different types of these, but they are sometimes associated with a blistering skin rash worsened by sun exposure. The inherited metabolic disorders usually aren't associated with skin changes. Phenylketonuria (PKU) is associated with fair skin and light hair though. Sorry I couldn't help more, but I hope this may help.  (+ info)

How do you increase your metabolic rate withough exercising?

I recently had an accident and am not able to exercise. I may be out for 2-3 months, maybe longer. I was just wondering if there was any way that I could increase my metabolic rate.

Eat more frequently and eat large volumes of less calorie dense foods. Drinking water will speed up your metabolic rate temporarily by 30% per 17oz. drank.  (+ info)
