  • Diagnosis
  • Other diseases (such as mental illnesses) might be considered subclinical if they present some but not all of the symptoms required for a clinical diagnosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Signs and symptoms of TIA are widely variable and can mimic other neurologic conditions, making the clinical context and physical exam crucial in ruling in or out the diagnosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • In general, focal deficits make TIA more likely, but the absence of focal findings do not exclude the diagnosis and further evaluation may be warranted if clinical suspicion for TIA is high (see "Diagnosis" section below). (wikipedia.org)
  • Importantly, patients with symptoms that last more than one hour are more likely to have permanent neurologic damage, making prompt diagnosis and treatment important to maximize recovery. (wikipedia.org)

  • excess
  • The excess risk of rotating night shift work combined with unhealthy lifestyle was higher than the addition of risk associated with each individual factor. (bmj.com)
  • levels
  • However, gout sufferers often have higher levels of uric acid (called hyperuricemia) caused from the body's inability to break down the uric acid. (createforum.eu)
  • Very high levels that would increase the risk of pancreatitis is treated with a drug from the fibrate class. (wikipedia.org)
  • For people with mildly or moderately high levels of triglycerides lifestyle changes including weight loss and dietary modification are recommended. (wikipedia.org)
  • Medications are recommended in those with high levels of triglycerides that are not corrected with the aforementioned lifestyle modifications, with fibrates being recommended first. (wikipedia.org)
  • A high-sensitivity CRP (hs-CRP) test measures low levels of CRP using laser nephelometry. (wikipedia.org)
  • In a 2004 prospective cohort study on colon cancer risk associated with CRP levels, people with colon cancer had higher average CRP concentrations than people without colon cancer. (wikipedia.org)
  • Produced in high levels during periods of stress, infection, etc possibly leading to diabetic ketoacidosis, a very serious condition. (wikipedia.org)
  • weakness
  • Initial symptoms, as promoted by the American Stroke Association, are FAST (stroke), representing F = Facial weakness (droop), A = Arm weakness (drift), S = Speech difficulty (slur), and T = Time to act (priority of intervention). (wikipedia.org)
  • The most common presenting symptoms of TIA are focal neurologic deficits, which can include, but are not limited to: Amaurosis fugax (painless, temporary loss of vision) One-sided facial droop One-sided motor weakness Diplopia (double vision) Problems with balance and spatial orientation A detailed neurologic exam, including a thorough cranial nerve exam, is important to identify these findings and to differentiate them from mimickers of TIA. (wikipedia.org)
  • Symptoms such as unilateral weakness, amaurosis fugax, and double vision have higher odds of representing TIA compared to memory loss, headache, and blurred vision. (wikipedia.org)
  • diseases
  • Recently, the incidence of kidney disease is more and more high, although many patients take treatment of certain diseases, but still repeatedly, after all is because friends of patients do not pay attention to diet, lets look at, what diet. (kidneyhealthy.com)
  • Patients with many different cardiovascular diseases have a higher likelihood of experiencing a blood clot or loss of blood flow in border-zone regions of the brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • People with many different cardiovascular diseases have a higher likelihood of experiencing a clot or a plaque that impedes flow through a blood vessel. (wikipedia.org)
  • artery
  • VBD Hemifacial spasm Paresis Trigeminal neuralgia ICD Progressive visual field defect Most commonly caused by hypertension, continued stress on the walls of the artery will degrade the vessel wall by damaging and loosening the collagen and elastin meshwork which comprises the intima. (wikipedia.org)
  • High blood pressure mold and force the artery to now take on an elongated, tortuous course to better withstand the higher pressures. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Internal Carotid Artery is also at high risk to be affected. (wikipedia.org)
  • Symptoms are commonly associated with the artery being affected. (wikipedia.org)
  • uric acid

  • Gout results when needle-like crystals of high uric acid foods in the body's connective tissue or lodge themselves in the space between two bones or joints. (createforum.eu)
  • These uric acid crystals inflame the surrounding area and lead to gout's symptoms: Heat, Pain, Redness, Stiffness, Swelling, Arthritis attacks that develop in short time period (e.g., 12-24 hours), and Arthritis Attacks to one joint. (createforum.eu)
  • infarction
  • The American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA) now define TIA as a brief episode of neurological dysfunction with a vascular cause, with clinical symptoms typically lasting less than one hour, and without evidence of infarction on imaging. (wikipedia.org)
  • In silent stroke, also known as silent cerebral infarct (SCI), there is permanent infarction present on imaging, but there are no immediately observable symptoms. (wikipedia.org)
  • Symptoms of embolisation in an organ vary with the organ involved but commonly include: Pain in the involved body part Temporarily decreased organ function Later symptoms are closely related to infarction of the affected tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • Stroke
  • Any one of these symptoms, whether seen alone or in combination, should be assumed to be stroke until proven otherwise. (wikipedia.org)
  • After the initial stroke, other symptoms depend on the area of the brain affected. (wikipedia.org)
  • In ischemic stroke, symptoms generally persist beyond 7 days. (wikipedia.org)
  • Mitral stenosis poses a high risk of forming emboli which may travel to the brain and cause stroke. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients

  • The symptoms expressed by FMD patients is largely dependent on the vascular bed(s) affected by the disease. (wikipedia.org)

  • In Spain a significant number of individuals die from atherosclerotic disease of the coronary and carotid arteries without having classic risk factors and prodomal symptoms. (biomedsearch.com)
  • insulin resistance
  • When the body produces insulin under conditions of insulin resistance, the cells are resistant to the insulin and are unable to use it as effectively, leading to high blood sugar. (wikipedia.org)

  • The test gives results in 25 minutes with a sensitivity down to 0.04 mg/L. The risk of developing cardiovascular disease is quantified as follows: low: hs-CRP level under 1.0 mg/L average: between 1.0 and 3.0 mg/L high: above 3.0 mg/L Normal concentration in healthy human serum is between 5 and 10 mg/L, increasing with aging.
