Book Description :

Movement disorder specialists, general neurologists, hepatologists, general gastroenterologists, and psychiatrists are the specialists who will most likely see some Wilson's disease patients during their careers. See them - yes. Recognize and diagnose them - maybe. If you are in one of these specialties, and a patient with tremor, hepatitis, cirrhosis, apparent Parkinsonism, or mood disorder, is referred to you, will you appropriately recognize the possibility that the underlying diagnosis may be Wilson's disease? Wilson's disease is both treatable and reversible, and commonly misdiagnosed. This book aims to change this with comprehensive coverage of every aspect of Wilson's disease, from well-catalogued, easy-to-use clinical diagnostic tools to treatment methods to molecular biology. Dr. Brewer is the world's leading expert on Wilson's disease, seeing and caring for over 300 patients with the disease during the last 20 years. He is a professor of human genetics at the University of Michigan.

Book Description :

This pocket guide provides a concise yet comprehensive overview of the pathogenesis, treatment, and management of Wilson disease. Drawing upon expertise from the Center of Excellence at Yale University in liver disease, neurology, and psychiatry for adult and pediatric patients, as well as dieticians, clinical trial coordinators, representatives from the Wilson Disease Association and outside experts from the US and UK as well, this guide provides a balanced and easy to digest approach to understanding treatment and care for Wilson disease patients. The text reviews different treatment options and other care needed to address clinical symptoms, as well as the testing needed for monitoring efficacy and adherence. Furthermore, the volume discusses these issues in the context of a best care model, which is an integrative care model where patients and their caregivers partner with Centers of Excellence with expertise in this rare disorder, to achieve best long-term outcomes. Written by experts in the field, Management of Wilson Disease: A Pocket Guide is a valuable resource for clinicians and primary care physicians who treat patients with Wilson disease.

Book Description :

Wilson’s Disease for the Patient and Family: A Patients Guide to Wilson’s disease and Frequently asked Questions about Copper, is an essential reference book for patients with Wilson’s disease and their families. In easy-to-understand language, Dr. Brewer, a world authority on Wilson’s disease and copper, explains everything about Wilson’s disease, from its genetic cause and mechanism of transmission, to effective treatment plans. A comprehensive glossary provides readers with definitions and explanations for many of the scientific words and phrases used in the text. Major reasons why this book is important to patients relate to the rarity of the disease, variation in its manner of presentation, and the likelihood that doctors consulted about the medical problems will know very little about Wilson’s disease. Most doctors, even specialists in liver disease or neurology, will see at most one or two cases during their entire medical careers. If patients hope for rapid and early diagnosis, and that is important to preserve as much function as possible, they may need to help the doctor think of the disease in the first place, and help in sorting out what constitutes proper diagnosis. And then, if there is a diagnosis, comes treatment. The days are gone when one drug, penicillamine (the only anticopper drug most doctors have heard of), is prescribed as soon as the diagnosis is made. Now we have different therapies for different stages. In fact, we no longer recommend penicillamine for Wilson’s disease at all. This book will guide the patient and family through all of these various aspects of Wilson’s disease. Dr. Brewer begins by describing Wilson’s disease, what causes it, how it is inherited, and what symptoms people with Wilson’s disease exhibit. It is an inherited disorder of copper accumulation and toxicity, affecting one in 40,000 people worldwide. After basic coverage of Wilson’s disease, Dr. Brewer devotes an entire chapter to answering some of the most commonly asked questions about copper. Many of these questions are unrelated to Wilson’s disease, but are questions frequently asked by other types of patients as they are informed that there is “something wrong with their copper.” After that, Dr. Brewer explores the symptoms which should trigger the suspicion of Wilson’s disease, and what screening tests can be done to explore this possibility. He then covers testing which will give a definitive diagnosis, what the results of different tests mean, and some of the possible problems with various tests which might be performed. Once a reliable diagnosis of Wilson’s disease is made, anticopper therapy is essential to the survival of Wilson’s disease patients. Dr. Brewer explains what drugs are available for treatment of Wilson’s disease, and offers a comparison of their benefits and side effects. He elaborates on variations in treatment, first discussing the initial stage of treatment, and then long-term maintenance therapy. Included in the discussion are tips for treatment of children and pregnant women. The risks and long-term outlook for a person diagnosed with Wilson’s disease are discussed in some detail. After these information-packed chapters, Dr. Brewer devotes a chapter to answering some frequently asked questions about Wilson’s disease, and presents resources available to Wilson’s disease patients and their families. The book concludes as Dr. Brewer examines the current shortcomings in Wilson’s disease therapy, and points to areas which might be improved upon in the future.

Book Description :

Wilson's Disease, an inherited copper toxicosis, is a condition that affects the central nervous system and liver, and appears in childhood or early adulthood. Though the condition is rare, it is vital that the physician is aware of its clinical manifestations, since treatments can be very successful if instituted before irreversible organ damage has occurred. Here, Tjaard Hoogenraad gives a comprehensive guide to effective early diagnosis and treatment of Wilson's Disease, using a series of fascinating case studies to bring out the nuances of effective patient management. In addition, he provides an in-depth review of current information on the aetiology and pathogenesis of the disease, plus practical guidance on the new diagnostic tests and therapies that have arisen from the latest scientific data. Drawing on his own extensive experience with Wilson's Disease patients, and presenting an informed perspective on all the literature available on this topic, Dr Hoogenraad has produced the most complete and up-to-date clinically oriented monograph currently available on this disease.

Book Description :

Background: Wilson's disease (WD) is a genetic disorder of copper metabolism caused by mutations in ATP7B gene. The most common haematological feature noted is Coombs-negative haemolytic anemia. Leukopenia and thrombocytopenia were also described. We aimed to evaluate haematological parameters in children with WD.Methods: We conducted a both retrospective and prospective study which included children diagnosed with WD in 2 paediatric gastroenterology departments from Bucharest, Romania between 2003 and 2018. The study group was divided into four categories based on manifestations - asymptomatic, liver disease, neurological disease, neurological and liver disease. For each patient complete blood count was performed. We analyzed the haematological parameters.Results: Sixty-six patients were included in the study (mean age at diagnosis 10,5 years, sex ratio M:F 1,35). Fifty-six percent of patients were from the rural area. The patients distribution was: asymptomatic -15,1%, liver disease -68,1, neurological disease -6%, neurological and liver disease -13,6%. Haemolytic anemia was seen in 7,5%. Platelets were found to be significantly lower in patients with neurological and liver disease when compared to the asymptomatic group (p

Book Description :

Updated and revised edition of the concise guide to Wilson's Disease. Copper or Cuprum is a trace mineral, considered to play a vital role in maintaining normal processes within the body. It is the structural component of many enzymes in our body systems, and is responsible in assisting iron to be utilized by the tissues. It also removes free radicals from the body and helps prevent damage in cell structures, making it a powerful antioxidant. These are just some of the many benefits we could get from copper. But what happens when this powerful mineral goes beyond the level of what is tolerated and needed by the body? It then becomes a problem --- from being an antioxidant, a free-radical fighter, it becomes a deadly poison, a threat to life. This is what happens in Wilson's Disease. This must-have book outlines the causes, diagnostic tests and treatment options for the disease.

Book Description :

Ask yourself this; did Wilson's Disease exist in the times of our ancestors, centuries ago, or was it born in recent times? Where did it come from? How did we find ourselves diagnosed with it? Has it occurred to you that the foods that you consume on a daily basis directly affect your health? Would you like to know more about the one protocol that has worked for us, time and time again, in increasing our health to a point where "disease" can no longer exist? Through reversing our own chronic diseases and conditions - ranging from severe autoimmune, neurological, digestive - all the way to rare genetic conditions, we noticed a commonality during our healing journeys. We discovered a protocol that supercharged our health and subsequently worked well in the removal of any condition, disease, infection, abnormality, addiction, mental health condition - or any other label that you may come across. Through producing this series of information-assisted journals, our goal has been to reach you directly and share our experiences with you, with the aim of giving you hope. Regardless of what you have been diagnosed/labeled with - if applied correctly, you will experience significant positive changes. This journal has been broken down into two parts - the first part being information-based, and the second part being an assisted journal area for you to document, track and journal your personal daily progress, whilst being given helpful tips along the way. We didn't want to release just another "information overloaded" book which the reader does not benefit from or take action on immediately. Through this interactive and simplified approach found within this series of journals, you will achieve your health goals effectively. Welcome to the world of improved health and healing. Good luck on your journey.
