Long-term effects of Lyme disease on the kidneys are potentially the most dangerous. According to Marvistavet, glomerular disease results from stimulation of the immune system to infections, including borrelia burgdorferi. Years of immune system response can damage the kidneys. Even if a dog that tests positive for the bacteria has no other symptoms, screening for protein loss to evaluate kidney disease is important. According to Wendy C. Brooks, ., VeterinaryPartner Educational Director, the damage causes the kidneys to lose protein into the urine instead of keeping it in the blood. Complications can develop, such as nephritic syndrome. The prognosis with glomerular disease is guarded.
Unfortunately, the majority of the long term effects of LSD are not treatable. Flashbacks, psychosis, and mental illness can be treated but not cured. Recognizing the symptoms is crucial to managing and treating all of these negative effects. Many researchers state that the long term physical, mental, and indirect effects cannot be predicted and this is what makes LSD use dangerous. Each person reacts differently to the mind altering hallucinations, some create new consciousness while others create a vast horror filled world. Who creates which is unpredictable as are what the long term consequences of LSD use are.
The heart and blood vessels comprise the two elements of the cardiovascular system that work together in providing nourishment and oxygen to the organs of the body. The activity of these two elements is also coordinated in the body's response to stress. Acute stress — stress that is momentary or short-term such as meeting deadlines, being stuck in traffic or suddenly slamming on the brakes to avoid an accident — causes an increase in heart rate and stronger contractions of the heart muscle, with the stress hormones — adrenaline, noradrenaline and cortisol — acting as messengers for these effects. In addition, the blood vessels that direct blood to the large muscles and the heart dilate, thereby increasing the amount of blood pumped to these parts of the body and elevating blood pressure. This is also known as the fight or flight response. Once the acute stress episode has passed, the body returns to its normal state.
