  • Cytochrome c oxidase deficiency

    The task of cytochrome C is technical in terms of chemistry and chain formation. But in simple words, it is an enzyme that processes oxygen and energy levels of major organs like the heart, liver, skeletal muscles, and brain.Chains in the DNA of a body carry this enzyme with different protons and electrons for the smooth functioning of Cytochrome C. But the defect or deficiency of this enzyme creates errors and muscle development i  Read More

  • Glycogen storage disease i

    Glycogen storage diseases are a group of disorders in which stored glycogen cannot be metabolized into glucose to supply energy and to maintain steady blood glucose levels for the body.Glycogen storage disease I (GSDI) is inherited as an autosomal recessive genetic disorder.The disorder is characterized by the accumulation of excess glycogen and fat in the liver and kidneys, resulting in an enlarged liver  Read More

  • Glycogen storage disease iii

    Glycogen storage disease type 3 is also known as Forbes-Cori disease. The disease is caused by mutations to the AGL gene that instruct the synthesis of glycogen debranching enzyme. Debranching is one of the initial steps of glycogenolysis that is intended to release glucose from stored glycogen during fasting. Due to the enzyme deficiency, glycogen continues to deposit in the liver, cardiac and skeletal muscles. The affected i  Read More

  • Pyroglutamicaciduria

    Pyroglutamicaciduria (PGA) is a rare metabolic disorder that causes high levels of PGA in the blood.Pyroglutamic acid (PA) is an intermediate product of glutamine metabolism.Glutamine is a non-essential amino acid that is abundant in the body and is involved in many metabolic processes.PA is formed from glutamine via transamination reactions involving glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH).PA is e  Read More

  • Rheumatic diseases

    There is no cure for rheumatic diseases except infectious arthritis. Treatments and medications can be divided into short-term and long-term reliefs. Short term reliefs focus on massage, joint immobilization, etc.Long-term relief includes medications like:Oral analgesics, or painkillers, such as over-the-counter acetaminophen, and prescription narcotics, or opioids, like oxycodone and hydrocodone, which  Read More
