Glossary for Diminished Deep tendon reflexes
Medical terms related to Diminished Deep tendon reflexes or mentioned in this section include:
- Autonomic nerve symptoms: Symptoms affecting the autonomic nervous system
- Brain symptoms: Symptoms affecting the brain
- Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease with pyramidal features, autosomal dominant: CMT is an inherited neurological disease characterized by the gradual degeneration of nerves which starts in the hands and feet and results in progressive numbness, muscle weakness and loss of function. Type 5 has an autosomal dominant inheritance, progresses slowly and involves movement disorders.
- Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy: A rare disorder involving swelling of nerve roots and destruction of the protective layer around nerves. Severe symptoms can take up to a year or more to develop.
- Diminished Deep tendon reflexes in lower limb: Diminished deep tendon reflexes in lower limb refers to reduced deep tendon reflexes in a leg.
- Disc herniation:
- Down Syndrome: A chromosome syndrome causing physical effects and mental retardation.
- Edwards Syndrome: A rare inherited genetic disorder where a portion of chromosome 18 is duplicated. Most affected individuals die during the fetal stage and surviving infants have serious defects and tend to live for only a short while.
- Friedreich ataxia: A progressive inherited neuromuscular disorder involving slow degeneration of the spinal cord and brain.
- Gaucher Disease: A rare inherited biochemical disorder characterized by the deficiency of the enzyme called glucocerebrosidase and accumulation of glycosylceramide (glucocerebroside). There are three forms of this disease: type 1, 2 and 3.
- Hartnup Disease: A disorder of amino acid transport resulting in light sensitive dermatitis, ataxia, migraines and personality changes.
- Head symptoms: Symptoms affecting the head or brain
- Hypokalemia: Abnormally low levels of potassium in the blood.
- Hypoparathyroidism: causesd by lack of PTH
- Hypothyroidism: The decreased activity of the thyroid gland
- Isoniazid -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Isoniazid during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
- Lesch-Nyhan syndrome: Inherited biochemical disorder of purine metabolism caused by the virtual absence of an enzyme called hypoxanthine-guanine phosphoribosyltransferase or HPRT.
- Metachromatic Leukodystrophy: An inherited biochemical deficiency involving a deficiency of the enzyme called arylsulfatase A which leads to a harmful buildup of fatty material in the body.
- Miller Fisher Syndrome: Autoimmune nerve condition.
- Mohr-Tranebjaerg syndrome: A very rare syndrome characterized mainly by nerve degeneration. Deafness usually occurs early in life.
- Movement symptoms: Changes to movement or motor abilities
- Muscle symptoms: Symptoms affecting the muscles of the body
- Muscular Dystrophy: Any of various muscle wasting diseases
- Musculoskeletal symptoms: Symptoms affecting muscles or bones of the skeleton.
- Myotonic Dystrophy: An inherited disorder characterized by progressive muscle weakness and wasting as well as eye defects, heart abnormalities and other anomalies. The severity of the condition is greatly variable. There are two type of myotonic dystrophy with type 1 being more severe than type 2.
- Nerve symptoms: Symptoms affecting the nerves
- Neurological symptoms: Any symptoms that are caused by neurological conditions
- Poliomyelitis: Dangerous virus now rare due to vaccination.
- Pompe disease: A rare inherited biochemical disorder where insufficient maltase acid results in accumulation of glycogen. The condition is often fatal in infants, causes mental retardation, hypotonia and a short life in children and progressive muscle weakness in adults. Also called glycogen storage disease type II.
- Possible human carcinogenic exposure -- Metronidazole: Some evidence indicates that exposure to Metronidazole has a possible link to an increased risk of developing cancer in humans. The carcinogenicity of the substance may be influenced by the duration and level of exposure. Metronidazole is a drug used to treat certain bacterial and parasitic infections.
- Possible human carcinogenic exposure -- Phenytoin: Some evidence indicates that exposure to Phenytoin (an anticonvulsant medication) has a possible link to an increased risk of developing cancer in humans. The carcinogenicity of the substance may be influenced by the duration and level of exposure.
- Pyridoxine -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Pyridoxine during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
- Reflex symptoms: Changes to the nerve reflexes
- Segawa syndrome, autosomal dominant: A rare inherited disorder involving progressive dystonia (neurological movement disorder) which would improve in the mornings and then deteriorate towards the evening.
- Serotonin Syndrome: The toxic reaction of the body to the substance,
possibly via allergic reaction or overdose.
- Spinal Muscular Atrophy: A rare condition characterized by progressive degeneration of the spinal and brainstem motor neurons. During fetal development excess primary neurons are formed. The body automatically destroys the extra primary neurons so that only some survive and mature into neurons. In spinal muscular dystrophy, the process that destroys the excess primary neurons doesn't switch off and continues destroying the neurons resulting in progressive motor problems. Various types of the condition range from mild to severe enough to cause death within a couple of years of birth.
- Tendon pain: Pain due to inflammation of the connective tissue of the body.
- Tendon symptoms: Symptoms affecting the tendons in joints.
- Tick paralysis: Paralysis from Australian tick bites
- Transverse myelitis: Inflammation of the spinal cord which results in various neurological and muscle symptoms. The inflammation can occur for no obvious reason or may result from a virus, bacterial infection, autoimmune disease or vaccination. The type and severity of symptoms is determined by the location and degree of inflammation.
- Vitamin B12 Deficiency: A deficiency of Vitamin B12 primarily causes anemias the body is unable to make sufficient quantities of normal red blood cells. Severe cases can lead to permanent nervous system problems. The vitamin B12 deficiency can result from absorption problems, insufficient dietary intake, certain medications (e.g. metformin), inherited conditions (e.g. transcobalamin deficiency) and certain chronic parasitic intestinal infestations.
- Vitamin E deficiency: Deficiency of Vitamin E
