Blepharitis, common inflammation of the eyelids that is marked by red,scaly, crusting eyelids and a burning, itching, grainy feeling in the eye.The eye itself often has some redness as well.

treatments: Treatments include cleaning the eyelids, antibiotic or steroid eyedrops, and treating underlying conditions. However, blepharitis tends to come back.

In medicine and anatomy, the special senses are the senses that have specialized organs devoted to them: vision (the eye) hearing and balance (the ear, which includes the auditory system and vestibular system) smell (the nose) taste (the tongue)

Special Senses

 

High blood pressure

A condition in which the force of the blood against the artery walls is too high.
syptoms: gh blood pressure often has no symptoms. Over time, if untreated, it can cause health conditions, such as heart disease and stroke.
treatments: eating a healthier diet with less salt, exercising regularly, and taking medications can help lower blood pressure.

The circulatory system, also called the cardiovascular system or the vascular system, is an organ system that permits blood to circulate and transport nutrients (such as amino acids and electrolytes), oxygen, carbon dioxide, hormones, and blood cells to and from the cells in the body to provide nourishment and help in fighting diseases, stabilize temperature and pH, and maintain homeostasis. The study of the blood flow is called hemodynamics. The study of the properties of the blood flow is called hemorheology.

Circulatory

Hodgkin's disease - a type of cancer of the lymphatic system.

syptoms: l ymph nodes in the neck, armpits, or groin may swell. Fatigue, fever, and chills are some symptoms.

treatments: Treatments include chemotherapy, radiation, and in rare cases stem-cell transplant.

The lymphatic system has multiple interrelated functions: It is responsible for the removal of interstitial fluid from tissues. It absorbs and transports fatty acids and fats as chyle from the digestive system. It transports white blood cells to and from the lymph nodes into the bones.

The lymph system is a network of organs, lymph nodes, lymph ducts, and lymph vessels that make and move lymph from tissues to the bloodstream. The lymph system is a major part of the body's immune system.

Lymphatic

asthm: A condition in which a person's airways become inflamed, narrow and swell, and produce extra mucus, which makes it difficult to breathe.

symptoms: Asthma may cause difficulty breathing, chest pain, cough, and wheezing. The symptoms may sometimes flare-up.

treatments: Asthma can usually be managed with rescue inhalers to treat symptoms (albuterol) and controller inhalers that prevent symptoms (steroids). Severe cases may require longer-acting inhalers that keep the airways open (formoterol, salmeterol, tiotropium), as well as oral steroids.

Diseases and conditions of the respiratory system fall into two categories: Viruses such as influenza, bacterial pneumonia and the new enterovirus respiratory virus that has been diagnosed in children; and chronic diseases, such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

The primary organs of the respiratory system are lungs, which function to take in oxygen and expel carbon dioxide as we breathe. The human respiratory system is a series of organs responsible for taking in oxygen and expelling carbon dioxide.

The human respiratory system is a series of organs responsible for taking in oxygen and expelling carbon dioxide. The primary organs of the respiratory system are lungs, which carry out this exchange of gases as we breathe.

Resportory

Acid Reflux: A digestive disease in which stomach acid or bile irritates the food pipe lining.

syptoms:Symptoms include burning pain in the chest that usually occurs after eating and worsens when lying down.

treatments: Relief from lifestyle changes and over-the-counter medications is usually temporary. Stronger medication may be needed.

The liver has multiple functions, but its main function within the digestive system is to process the nutrients absorbed from the small intestine. Bile from the liver secreted into the small intestine also plays an important role in digesting fat. In addition, the liver is the body's chemical "factory."

The organs and glands in the body that are responsible for digestion. The digestive system begins with the mouth and extends through the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and large intestine, ending with the rectum and anus.

Digestive

kidney stone: A small, hard deposit that forms in the kidneys and is often painful when passed.

syptoms: he most common symptom is severe pain, usually in the side of the abdomen, that's often associated with nausea.

treatments: Treatment includes pain relievers and drinking lots of water to help pass the stone. Medical procedures may be needed to remove or break up larger stones.

The urinary system, also known as the renal system, consists of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and the urethra. Each kidney consists of millions of functional units called nephrons.

Their function is to remove liquid waste from the blood in the form of urine; keep a stable balance of salts and other substances in the blood; and produce erythropoietin, a hormone that aids the formation of red blood cells. The kidneys remove urea from the blood through tiny filtering units called nephrons.

Urinary

hypothyroidism: A condition in which the thyroid gland doesn't produce enough thyroid hormone.

symptoms: Major symptoms include fatigue, cold sensitivity, constipation, dry skin, and unexplained weight gain

treatments: Treatment consists of thyroid hormone replacement.

The endocrine system is the collection of glands that produce hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep, and mood, among other things.

Endocrine

hiv/aids: HIV causes AIDS and interferes with the body's ability to fight infections.

syptoms: Within a few weeks of HIV infection, flu-like symptoms such as fever, sore throat, and fatigue can occur. Then the disease is usually asymptomatic until it progresses to AIDS. AIDS symptoms include weight loss, fever or night sweats, fatigue, and recurrent infections.

treatments: No cure exists for AIDS, but strict adherence to anti-retroviral regimens (ARVs) can dramatically slow the disease's progress as well as prevent secondary infections and complications.

  • To produce, maintain, and transport sperm (the male reproductive cells) and protective fluid (semen)
  • To discharge sperm within the female reproductive tract during sex.

The reproductive system or genital system is a system of sex organs within an organism which work together for the purpose of sexual reproduction. Many non-living substances such as fluids, hormones, and pheromones are also important accessories to the reproductive system.

Reproductive

The human body is made up of trillions of cells that all work together for the maintenance of the entire organism. While cells, tissues, and organs may perform very different functions, all the cells in the body are similar in their metabolic needs. Maintaining a constant internal environment by providing the cells with what they need to survive (oxygen, nutrients, and removal of waste) is necessary for the well-being of individual cells and of the entire body. The many processes by which the body controls its internal environment are collectively called homeostasis. The complementary activity of major body systems maintains homeostasis.
