What is a certified orthotist?
Challenge America answeredAn orthotist is a practitioner who helps people with disabilities of the spine and limbs. Orthotics means the science of designing orthopedic braces that help certain musculoskeletal deformities. A certified orthotist reviews, designs, and fits devices called orthoses. Corrective shoe inserts are called orthotics. The certified orthotist has passed the certification standards of The American Board of Certification in Orthotics and Prosthetics, Inc. The orthotist may be part of your rehabilitation team and often works in conjunction with the prosthetist in assessing a person’s need for a prosthesis and orthopedic devices.
What is the duration of cardiovascular infection?
Piedmont Heart Institute answered
The duration of cardiovascular infection is determined by the severity of the infection. If the infection is discovered quickly, aggressive medical intervention with antibiotics will be needed for two to eight weeks. If treatment is delayed, the infection is more difficult to eradicate, and treatment will take longer. Surgery along with a recovery period may be needed if the heart has been damaged. If no treatment is given, or if treatment is delayed too long, cardiovascular infection is fatal.
How does celiac disease affect pregnancy?
Atlanta Gastroenterology Associates answered
Untreated celiac disease can affect a woman's pregnancy by making it difficult to conceive and often hard to carry a baby to term. When a woman's body is unable to absorb necessary nutrients to regulate their hormones, her menstrual cycle may be affected and some woman stop ovulating completely. Nearly 40 percent of woman with untreated celiac disease suffer from irregular periods and without regular ovulation it is often difficult to get pregnant
Women with untreated celiac disease often have difficulty keeping their pregnancy. Miscarriage may occur due to lack of nutrients needed to keep the pregnancy as well as complications with the placenta adhering properly to your uterus due to celiac disease.
Once celiac disease is treated, most women see their cycle return to normal and pregnancy issues due to celiac disease are resolved. It is recommended to talk to your doctor before trying to conceive after you have begun treatment for celiac disease. Your doctor may recommend that you wait to get pregnant anywhere from six months to 2 years after treatment for celiac disease has begun. Blood panels and tests can be performed to confirm that your body is in a healthy condition to support a pregnancy.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
