  1. In NCIS, Director Shepard had some sort of fatal disease, and in the episode “Stakeout,” Abby discovers that the Director’s blood has a normal white count and a high level of creatine kinase. What diseases could this indicate?

  2. So I was absent during school and I have to write an essay on this question, just a few notes will be very helpful though. The essay prompt is: Disease has had a dramatic impact on the developement of human history. Describe two specific instances and when and how it has probably changed the course of history. In each example, speculate what might have happened if there had been no diease episode. My instance is the conquest of the Americas with the Spaniards and Aztecs, etc. How did the disease that was brought about have an impact?

  3. An acquaintance told me she had a muscle biopsy a few weeks ago to test for Mitochrondiral disease and will be receiving the results in a few weeks. I’ve never heard of the disease, and it’s insanely late at the moment so my mind is too tired to do a search on it. What exactly is it, what are the symptoms, and how is it treated? Is it chronic and debilitating? She’s just 16 at the moment. I’m hoping it’s not serious.

  4. A disease which attacks the muscle motors, so that the muscles in the face won’t move. What is the name for the disease?

  5. Is it a disease or a distubed gland condition which needs one time treatement or life long treatment? Can it be corrected for once and for ever with the modern day medicines? If not treated out of ignorance then what are the extreme harmful effects of the disease? Can any medical professional guide me about this disease as to help me approach the doctor to be guided properly to overcome the problem?

    I think this is the biggest failure of science and generally the world. It is full of imperfections, even though religion is not a better alternative.

    But, what can you define as a disease; and what can you not? First of all, we have to realize that all humans are different physically. But they should be treated equally on moral basis, and on the basis of humanity (whether its gay ppl, straight ppl, women, old ppl; they should be treated equally on moral grounds).

    Because people are different physically; they exhibit different behavior due to the chemistry of their body. Here is where the tricky part comes. What can you categorize as an illness/disease/disorder and what can you not? This is the biggest failure of science: why do you need to categorize things into illnesses and non-illnesses? It is clear you are letting your bias through. Modern feminists define rape that is only committed by a man on a woman. So there come the discrepancies. Why can you not accept behavior that everyone’s behavior is deviant from one another. Why do we have to claim somethings are anomalies, and some are not? I know pedophilia and rape is wrong, but can you categorize is as an illness/disease/disorder? Do we have any proof that pedophilia and rape are not illnesses/diseases/disorders? Is there any proof that homosexuality is not an illness/disease/disorder? I dont think so.

    So why do we have to say that pedophilia and rape are done intentionally, when they could very well be ‘illnesses’. And how can we say homosexuality is not a disease/disorder when it could be?

    The fact is that these are faulty premises. We cannot categorize things into illnesses/diseases/disorders. Everyone is different from each other physically and psycologically. That is the best way to deal with things. Science cannot even come to a consensus when (at what time period) a child in a mother’s womb is alive; or whether abortion is murder or not (after what stage). So i think science has failed in that aspect.

    Feminists wants the EXACT same physical rights for women that they want for men. Men and women are different physically, remember that. So I would want rights to be ‘balanced out’ between male and female; and that would constitute as EQUAL rights, not the EXACT SAME rights.

    Is there any proof that homosexuality is NOT a disorder/illness. Then why does science say it is NOT a disorder/illness? Is there any proof that pedophilia/rape is NOT a disease.

    Please answer these questions, and give me conclusive studies NOT theories for this. Evolution as you like it or not is NOT proven, it is a THEORY. I also mentioned religion is not a better alternative.

  7. Use an internet source to provide some information about a disease related to the skeletal or muscular system of the body.
    Answer the following questions:
    1. What is the disease and what effects does it have on a patient.
    2. What is the prognosis?
    3. What can be done to cure or treat symptoms of the disease? (example: medications, therapy, amputation–yikes!)

  12. I have a 45 gallon aquarium with three freshwater parrot ciclids. For the past week, the largest of the tree sits at the bottom and waves his fins normally as if s/he was swimming. The fish’s skin looks normal. He is eating normally and is not behaving any differently than before other than the sitting at the bottom of the tank. When I go to feed them, he swims normally like all of the other fish. About 6 weeks ago, we successfully treated hole in the head disease with this same fish. The water conditions are clean with the temp between 77 and 79 degrees. Anyone have any thoughts on the disease process thaty may be going on here? I appreciate your thoughts in advance!

  13. I have Trichotillomania, the hair pulling disease. I cannot control my urges to pull, at all. I’ve tried wrapping my fingers in rubber bands while I write and do work in class (since I pull alot with one hand as I write with the other) and so many other things. It would help so much if I could get some suggestions on ways to keep myself from pulling my hair. I’ve tried hats, fake nails, etc. Hats were just too aggrivating and annoying. Help? Thank you ahead of time! <3

  14. Hi about a month ago I had a really bad illness. I had a high fever, aches everywhere and was just very cold. All those syptoms vanishes after having Antibiotic for a good three days but soon after I had this feeling of being generally tired and seeming to yawn very frequently. And every morning I wake up with a sore throat, but it usually goes away in about an hour after waking up. I was wondering if there is a disease that has these certain symptoms? thanks.

  15. I cant find a disease that is CURRENTLY targeted for eradiction. Can anyone help?
