This circulatory system disorder is quite simply, cancer of the blood. The result is abnormal production of red blood cells from the cancerous bone marrow.
Leukemia
This circulatory system disorder is when blood cells can not carry enough oxygen around your body. It occurs when the level of healthy red blood cells (RBCs) in the body becomes too low. Symptoms include fatigue and stress on bodily organs.
Anemia
This circulatory system disease is a rare inherited bleeding disorder in which the blood does not clot (scab)normally. Persons with this disorder may bleed for a longer time than others after an injury or accident. They also may bleed internally, especially in the joints (knees, ankles, and elbows).
Hemophilia
there are no symptoms for this circulatory system disorder. Nearly one-third of people don't know they have it. In fact, many people havethis disorder for years without knowing it. Uncontrolled, it can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure or kidney failure. This is why it is often called the "silent killer."
High Blood Pressure
This circulatory system disorder results in a chest pain or discomfort that occurs when your heart muscle does not get enough blood. As plaque builds up in blood vessels,they become narrow and stiff. Blood flow to the heart is reduced. This decreases the oxygen supply to the heart muscle.
Angina
This is a nervous system condition that makes people susceptible to seizures.
Epilepsy
This nervous system disorder means there has been a loss of oxygen supply to the brain and brain cells are dying.
Stroke
After you've had chickenpox, the virus lies dormant in the nervous system. Years later, the virus may reactivate as this disease. This starts as an outbreak of rash or blisters on the skin.
Shingles
A medical condition of the skeletal system in which a bone becomes cracked, splintered, or splits a little as a result of physical accident. This can also occur as a result of certain medical conditions that weaken the bones, such as osteoporosis or certain types of cancer.
Fracture
This skeletal system condition has side-to-side spinal curves. On an X-ray, the spine of an individual with this condition looks more like an "S" or a "C" than a straight line.
Scoliosis
This skeletal system disorder is primarily caused by lack of vitamin D, calcium, or phosphate, which leads to softening and weakening of the bones
Rickets
This affects the muscular system which occurs: the ligaments caused by a sudden overstretching. The ligament is usually only stretched, but sometimes it can be snapped, slightly torn, or ruptured, all of which are more serious and require longer to heal.
Sprain
In this muscular system injury muscle fibers tear as a result of overstretching. Also called pulled muscles. Whiplash is an example.
Strain
