Are there disorders or conditions associated with spina bifida? Health issues are different for each person with spina bifida. Open spina bifida (myelomeningocele)—in which the spinal cord is exposed—tends to cause more severe problems.1 Hydrocephalus Many infants born with spina bifida get extra fluid in and around the brain, a condition called hydrocephalus, or water on the brain.

Milk Proteins and Allergy Medications Dr. Antony Ham Pong of Ottawa has compiled some information on milk allergy and asthma/allergy medications that have trace amounts of cow's milk protein. He recommends that his patients who have cow's milk allergy not use dry powder inhalers (DPIs) with lactose because of the risk of inhaling trace amounts of milk protein causing a severe asthma attack. There are alternatives which are lactose free. “Inhaling a trace amount of milk protein is likely far more dangerous to a milk allergic asthmatic person than ingesting the same trace amount.” With respect to milk allergy and oral meds containing lactose, the risk is far lower because the trace amounts are unlikely to cause allergic reactions except in the most severely allergic cases.

Visible Human Project Overview The Visible Human Project® is an outgrowth of the NLM's 1986 Long-Range Plan. It is the creation of complete, anatomically detailed, three-dimensional representations of the normal male and female human bodies. Acquisition of transverse CT, MR and cryosection images of representative male and female cadavers has been completed. The male was sectioned at one millimeter intervals, the female at one-third of a millimeter intervals.

Lateral ankle instability - OrthopaedicsOne Articles - OrthopaedicsOne Introduction An ankle sprain is the most common athletic injury — approximately 30,000 of these injuries occur each day in the US (1,2) — and the most common reason to see an orthopedist.(2-7) Ankle sprains are more prevalent in certain sports such as basketball, where in one study, they accounted for 13% of all injuries.(8) Historically, most physicians have recommended various forms of conservative management, with the adage, "All these injuries get better." More recently, however, careful assessment of ankle sprains has revealed that 10% to 40% result in persistent symptoms after acute injury (2,4-6,9-11) due to a number of issues: Peroneal tear or dislocation Underlying cartilage defect Chronic ankle instability While the exact incidence of chronic ankle instability as a result of an initial ankle sprain remains unknown, many authors have reported that injury to the mechanoreceptors and attenuation of the lateral ligament complex are likely causes.(10, 12)

What Is Casein? Foods With Casein, Casein Allergies, and More Milk or Casein Allergy Prevention continued... Giving up milk doesn't have to mean giving up calcium. Because even people who drink milk often don't get enough calcium in their diets, many other foods -- including juices, cereals, and rice and soy drinks -- are now enriched with calcium. Vegetables including kale, spinach, and broccoli are good sources of calcium as well. 7 Skills To Become Super Smart People aren’t born smart. They become smart.
