How to Diagnose peripheral vascular disease diagnosis Peripheral artery disease is a common condition in which arteries narrow, thus reducing the amount of blood flow to the limbs. The arteries are narrowed by fatty deposits, known as plaque, that build up on the walls of the arteries. PAD's symptoms are often mistaken for other problems, so it's important to be aware of them and to seek out medical care if you suspect you might have this condition Identifying Peripheral Artery Disease 1 Pay attention to limb pain and numbness. Many people will assume that pain in the legs is a normal part of aging. However, it is not normal and can be a sign that you have peripheral artery disease. Pay particular attention to pain and muscle cramping in the legs and hips while walking, exercising, or climbing stairs. Muscles in action need more blood flow than muscles at rest. This is why a person with PAD is more likely to have pain when moving, because the muscle can't get the added blood flow it needs. 2 Be suspicious of foot injuries that won't heal. Because blood flow to the limbs is limited, it will take injuries to the feet longer to heal if you have PAD. Pay attention to cuts or lacerations that won't heal or take a very long time to heal In severe cases of PAD, the tissue on the feet can get gangrene or die due to lack of blood flow.

How to Prevent Renal Artery Stenosis|what is the cause of the narrowing of the arteries The two renal arteries supply blood to your kidneys, which are responsible for removing excess waste and fluids from your body and secreting important hormones. Renal artery stenosis (RAS) is a condition characterized by a narrowing of one or both of these renal arteries. This narrowing restricts the flow of blood to the kidneys and can lead to kidney failure, hypertension, and a number of other problems. Fortunately, there are ways to minimize your risk of developing renal artery stenosis.

How to Diagnose Fanconi Anemia fas pathway Fanconi anemia (FA) is an inherited disease that arises from damaged bone marrow, the squishy tissue inside your bones that produces blood cells. This damage interferes with the production of blood cells, and can cause serious health problems like leukemia, a type of blood cancer. Although Fanconi anemia is blood related disorder, it can also affect the body's organs, tissues, and systems and increase a person's risk of developing cancer. The disease is usually diagnosed before the age of 12, though it can be detected during infancy, and even before birth.

How to Diagnose Lymphoma flow cytometry test for lymphoma Lymphoma is a group of blood cancers that develop in the lymphatic system. They are generally divided into 2 groups, Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, although the term non-Hodgkin lymphoma encapsulates a variety of lymphomas. Both general types of lymphoma have similar basic symptoms, so if you spot them you won't initially know what type of lymphoma might be developing. Lymphoma is properly diagnosed by identifying common symptoms and then getting a medical diagnosis. In order to give a proper diagnosis, your doctor will run a variety of tests on you, typically including imaging and a biopsy of one of your lymph nodes.

A variety of factors -- ranging from emotional stress and trauma to streptococcal infection -- can cause an episode of psoriasis. Recent research indicates that some abnormality in the immune system is the key cause of psoriasis. As many as 80% of people having flare-ups report a recent emotional trauma, such as a new job or the death of a loved one. Most doctors believe such external stressors serve as triggers for an inherited defect in immune function. Injured skin and certain drugs can aggravate psoriasis, including certain types of blood pressure medications (like beta-blockers), the anti-malarial medication hydroxychloroquine, and ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, etc.). Psoriasis tends to run in families, but it may be skip generations; a grandfather and his grandson may be affected, but the child's mother never develops the disease. Although psoriasis may be stressful and embarrassing, most outbreaks are relatively harmless. With appropriate treatment, symptoms generally subside within a few months. It is now clear that there is a genetic basis for psoriasis. This hereditary predisposition is necessary before the disease can be triggered by environmental factors. White blood cells called T-cells mediate the development of the psoriatic plaques that are present in the skin. When someone has psoriasis, their body is unable to offer protection from invaders. Instead, inflammation is promoted and skin cells are on overdrive. When cell growth is increased, old skin cells pile up instead of flaking off, causing psoriasis to occur. Currently, most experts conclude that environmental, genetic and immunologic factors interact to cause the disease. Scientists are unclear as to what causes psoriasis. However, thanks to decades of research, they have a general idea of two key factors: genetics and the immune system. Immune system

(enhancedvco) There are many causes of heart diseases. Most of heart diseases are caused by high blood pressure contributes to hardening of the arteries. High levels of bad cholesterol build up in the arteries as a result of uncontrolled diet with high levels of saturated fat and trans fat. All these add to the formation of atherosclerosis lesions and eventually arterial blockage or anything that serves to damage the inner lining of blood vessels and impedes the transportation of oxygen and nutrition to the heart can be defined as a risk of heart disease.
