Question?: Asperger Syndrome Causes

Chris asks…

Is the recognition of personality and neurotic disorders a good or bad thing?

I understand that its beneficial for people who need medication. The reason I ask is that my Mum reads a lot of psychology books and has a very good understanding of various psychomatic ailments, but I think because she knows so much about such illnesses and disorders she has tried to “label” me and my siblings in a sort of “psychological hyprochondriac” kind of way. I was diagnosed with depression and as having Aspergers syndrome when I was 10 and I think the Seroxat I was on for ten years may have caused further problems. Also, my brother is 9 and she has successfully had him diagnosed for Aspergers Syndrome and Attention Deficity Hyperactivity Disorder – as far as I’m concerned has is a perfectly normal 9 year old. I’m just worried that my brother will grow up into the personality that she’s labelled him as like I did.
I am being ungrateful for my Mum’s help or do you think ignorance can be bliss with these sort of things?

admin answers:

The problem you’re describing is not with recognition of disorders, but their misdiagnosis.

That is, it’s a very good thing to be able to recognize disorders. Seeing them where they don’t exist, not so good, in fact, as you suggest, it can be harmful.

It’s not that ignorance is bliss, it’s that a little knowledge can be dangerous — that is, when it isn’t really knowledge, but is information being misapplied.

Wish I had some advice for you, but I really don’t know what to say.

I’m surprised that the people she took your brother to, who agreed with her “diagnosis” did so. I hope they know what they’re doing.

Question?: Pdd Symptoms

Richard asks…

What illnesses are impossible to have a confirmed diagnosis on?

As I understand it, there are some illnesses out there that can only be diagnosed based on ruling out everything else. So my question is, what illnesses can someone have when all tests still show up normal?
Currently I’m studying medicine and as far as I know this is the topic after dehydration which we are doing now. I was hoping to get a little knowledge before hand but I haven’t got the books yet and the internet seems to be failing me? Thanks!

admin answers:

There are some diseases which can only be positively diagnosed after death and autopsies because there are currently no lab tests to use for positive diagnosis.

Parkinson’s disease and some of the parkinsonian conditions are a good example although that may change by the time you are out of med school. Look also at differential diagnoses.One problem is that the name Parkinson’s or Parkinson disease is actually a collection of syndromes with varying symptoms, rates of progression and differing genetic and environmental triggers. Not to mention the related parkinsonian conditions which may or may not be l-dopa responsive.

Lab tests are usually conducted in a suspected PD DX to rule out other conditions.

If doctors could recognize precursor symptoms of conditions such as PD, treatments and therapies might be started much earlier and that might delay onset of some symptoms and progression of others for considerable time.

Lewy body disease is an excellent example. Certain symptoms can overlap with PD and AD. Does a person have Parkinson’s disease with dementia (PDD)? Lewy Body disease? Alzheimer’s? Dementia? Other mental illness may be seen to manifest symptoms which can be associated with several conditions some emotional/psychological and some chemical imbalance.

There are many conditions which are very difficult to diagnose especially when they occur in infants as you can read at the link below. I”m not going to cut and paste since the article is quite clear with additional links.
Here’s a cardiac condition very difficult to diagnose:

Some conditions are simply difficult to diagnose in the early stages. The problem is that without a positive early diagnosis the patient risks death or other debilitating conditions. A simple example is appendicitis. Or how about the headaches or nausea associated with meningitis which are usually seen as the flu?

Diagnostics are very difficult simply because patients may need to go years back to find the precursor symptoms (PD is a great example) or be reluctant to tell the doctor embarrassing issues which they don’t think are related.

All patients should be encouraged to come to that first appointment (unless it is the emergency room) with a printed list of symptoms dating back several years if they still persist. And an extended blood relative family medical history plus a list of medications including OTCs which they have taken in recent.

Several autoimmune conditions are difficult to diagnose because they can be confused with another condition. Examples include Scleroderma and Lupus. Digestive disorders fall into the same category because symptoms overlap.

Oddly enough some of the cancers are also difficult to diagnose although I am still at a loss to understand exactly why. Breast cancer, lung cancer and colon cancer have been misdiagnosed as simply health issues for years.

Rare disorders are difficult to diagnose because most physicians simply aren’t familiar with the symptoms and assume other causes.

I think you would be better served with difficult rather than impossible. If the disease or condition has a name, someone has diagnosed it.

Listening is key.The difference between a teen and an infant is huge. One can tell you the other cannot communicate except to indicate pain. Knowing the questions to ask is so important. Telling patients to come with written lists is another.

Too often doctors rely on patients to provide the best clues. That isn’t always possible. Better diagnostic check lists would be of significant value. Diagrams could be included. Frequent revisions would be required.With a check list, the doctor is reading and thinking about both the questions and the answers and the patient is listening and responding.

Consider also that ‘impossible to confirm diagnoses” might actually refer to diagnoses which can’t be diagnosed by physical exam alone.

Both of my grandmothers died of lung cancer. Both smokers. A few years ago, I had a chest exray by a chiropractor and he said the dot on my lung area was calcium. Should I have cancer testing, and is there such a thing as free cancer screening? I am 47 years old.

Teaching Autism Child – Why Structure is Important For Teaching Your Autistic Child

Teaching Autism Child

Did you know such a your autistic child needs to have their teaching structured in order to proper learn and develop? Structured teaching for autistic children is probably and very much I think one of the best ways in which to teach an autistic child. Teaching Autism Child

When the time comes to search for a school for your autistic child it is worth the effort to go the extra mile and find out how the chosen school and teacher is structuring the class your autistic child might be in. If you find that the chosen school does not offer a form of structuring, it would be a wise choice to forget that school and move on. Teaching Autism Child

But it is not only the school that needs to have structure when teaching your autistic child. Some of the best teaching and learning that can really help your autistic child, begins and ends at home. This is when your child will learn to become a functioning member of society, to interact with those close to them, to have manners, to do certain things that will help them grow and develop. When it comes to structuring teaching for your autistic child it is worth putting a plan into place about what you want to achieve. Teaching Autism Child

One of the daunting things about autism is that; even though childhood autism is occurring in almost ‘epidemic’ proportions (1 in every 500 US Children), the government and doctors still have very little knowledge on how to properly structure for the best kind of teaching. Teaching Autism Child

So what is structure? Well my own take on structure when it comes to teaching autistic children is as follows: “Structure is simply organizing a task with a certain strategy that will get the desired result in the best and possible way.” Not that hard really, yet some make a mountain out of a molehill about it. So why is structure so important to teaching autistic children? Teaching Autism Child

1. The use of language does not come as easy for autistic children as it does to other children.

a. Sometimes they cannot communicate what they want us to hear.

b. What we see sometimes is aggressive behaviour and tantrums.

2. Autistic children cannot always access their ‘sequential memory’.

a. This is where your child is not able to keep events in order.

b. And this may also be a cause of them reacting badly to change happening around them. Teaching Autism Child

3. Autistic children react better to a pattern of behaviour and teaching. Don’t let your love ones suffer anymore! Lead them out through Teaching Autism Child program now!
