Leukopenia

What is the cause of the disease?


Ans: The primary cause of the disease is extensive neutrophil use or reduction in the number of neutrophils, which defend the body against bacterial or fungal infection. There are many other causes such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, leukemia and aplastic anemia (a condition where the bone marrow does not produce sufficient new cells to replenish blood cells).


How does the component of blood / blood vessel affected in the disease?


Ans: There are less white blood cells to fight bacteria which enter the body.


What is the function of the blood component / structure in the circulatory system?


Ans: White blood cells circulate in your blood stream, attacking invading bacteria, parasites and any other cells and objects that are not meant to be floating around inside your blood.


How does this blood component / structure differ from the rest in the circulatory system?


Ans: Comparing to red blood cell: The white blood cell has an irregular shape, has a nucleus and haemoglobin is absent. The white blood cell also fights bacteria either by producing antibodies or by phagocytosis, whereas the red blood cell has a regular shape, does not have any nucleus and haemoglobin in present. The red blood cell transports oxygen around the body.


How will the absence of the blood component / structure affect the health of the patient?


Ans: A shortage of white blood cells (leukopenia), makes the patient more vulnerable to other types of sickness and diseases as the patient has either a weak or no immune system to destroy harmful germs, viruses and bacterias in the body.


How is technology used to facilitate the analysis of one’s state of health and improve one’s lifestyle?


Ans: Technology can help patients suffer less and the rate of survival increases.


How is technology used to save lives with respect to the disease investigated?


Ans: Zell Oxygen is used in any healing regime. Ionic minerals helps to integrate other remedies. It contains 84 minerals and trace elements.Barley Grass Juice Powder provides minerals, trace elements, enzymes, vitamins, fatty acids and anti-oxidants that can enter into the cells.

1)I have learned that leukopenia is caused by many things such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, leukemia and aplastic anemia

I have learnt that neutrophils defend the body against infection, and that there will be less white blood cells to defend the patient.

I learnt that leukopenia is not a genetic disease, but can be caused by treatments.

I learned that having less white blood cells causes us to be more vulnerable to other types of sickness and diseases as the patient has either a weak immune system to destroy viruses in the body.

I've learnt that Zell Oxygen can help heal leukopenia.

I also learnt that this disease is not that hard to cure. Just have to wait for new neutrophils.

i have learnt that leukopenia may be caused by chemotherapy, which is ironic because chemotherapy is used to kill cancerous cells, and in that event, it causes another disease

I learned that leukemia can cause leukopenia.

I have learnt that with new technology, patients now suffer less pain and have a better survival rate. :) technology FTW!!!

I have learnt that Leukopenia can be caused by chemotherapy, radiation therapy, leukemia and aplastic anemia and what does it do to the human body

I learnt that Leukopenia is a really serious and scary diseases as you can fall sick very easily and that is not good at all...
