  • Choose one of the CDC’s five      most common chronic diseases (heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, or      arthritis) and describe the anatomical and physiological changes      associated with the nervous system.  Describe normal function of the      system and how the disease alters the normal function.  List signs      and symptoms that indicate the disease has developed, specific to the system      being covered.  Identify and describe steps people can take to reduce      their risk of developing the chronic disease

 Last names that begin with N through Z: Select the endocrine system for your initial post.

  • Choose one of the CDC’s five      most common chronic diseases (heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, or      arthritis) and describe the anatomical and physiological changes      associated with the endocrine system.  Describe normal function of      the system and how the disease alters the normal function.  List      signs and symptoms that indicate the disease has developed, specific to      the system being covered.  Identify and describe steps people can      take to reduce their risk of developing the chronic disease.

Use two scholarly sources (one may be your course text) to support your initial post. All sources must be referenced and cited according to APA guidelines as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Your initial post should be 250 words at a minimum.
 

Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ initial posts. Respond to one post by a classmate who covered the nervous system and one post by a classmate who covered the endocrine system.  Choose a comorbid condition associated with the disease chosen by the student to whom you are responding.  List signs and symptoms associated with the comorbidity.  List factors that contribute to the development of the comorbidity as well as steps the person can take to avoid the development of the problem.  Describe the impact of the comorbid condition on a patient’s physical and mental health. Your responses must be at least 100 words in length.
