Answer: As there are many diseses but the most common is sickle cell anaemia. this can be transmitted from parents to offsprings when both the partners are carrier for this disese. this disese is caused due to mutation in the gene i.e. it is caused by the substitution of glutamic acid(glu) by valine(val) at sixth position of the beta globin chain of haemoglobin molecule. the substitution of acid results due to single base substitution at the sixth codon of beta globin gene from GAG to GUG. the mutant haemoglobin molecule undergoes polymerisaTION UNDER LOW OXYGEN TENSION CAUSING THE CHANGE IN THE SHAPE OF RBC FROM BICONCAVE DISC TO ELONGATED SICKLE LIKE STRUCTURE.
Answer: When the Europeans came to the Americas, they brought a variety of diseases which had not been introduced to the Natives. These diseases proved to be extremely deadly. Many explanations are given for the huge decrease in the numbers of Natives; however, these new diseases were a huge contributer. Very soon after the Europeans arrival in the Americas, observers noticed that the Natives were catching and dying from introduced diseases. The death tole from these diseases is impossible to calculate, but it was up to 90% of the population which was killed in some places. The Europeans would arrive to a much weakened and depleted population, which greatly facilitated their ability to conquer. Disease such as typhus, measles, influenza, bubonic plague, cholera, malaria, tuberculosis, mumps, yellow fever, and pertussis (whooping cough), and especially smallpox proved extremely deadly. Disease spread quickly through the Americas for several reasons. Firstly, the Natives medical techniques included sweat baths and cold water dippings which may have increased mortality rate. Secondly, the Europeans had much agriculture which allowed them to have more diseases and be more immune to them. Finally, the Natives had already been weakened by a hemorrhagic fever which compounded the effects of the new diseases.
Answer: Acromegaly is the disease itself caused by the malfunctioning of endocrine gland. It occurs due to the over or hyper secreation of endocrine glands in adults in which appereance become gorilla-like due to enlargment of limbs and lower jaw.
Answer: Muscle wasting is progressive, meaning that eventually, patients will lose their ability (or in affected infants, fail to develop an ability) to walk, or perform activities that require sustained motion.
Answer: Different epidemics tended to take their toll on Native American populations who had no natural immunity to European-intorduced diseases of which, there were many. Some of the bigger ones included, measles, mumps, and smallpox. Common colds and flus like influenza did damage as well.
