In addition, few studies have assessed the incidence or prevalence of these diseases in the South Asian population in the United States.

There is a paucity of data on CKD in South Asians living in the United States.

condition. 1 The only feature of this child that is inconsistent with the diagnosis is his well-nourished appearance. Generally, infants and children with cyanotic heart lesions experience failure to thrive. One speculation for this discrepancy is the artistic preference of the time, which includes depicting their subjects as healthy and robust. 1 What is the pathophysiology of the condition? VSD is an acyanotic heart defect at first. Oxygenated blood from the left ventricle is shunted to the right (...) What physical exam findings may you find in this diagnosis? With VSD, infants may appear dusky in color, lethargic, dyspneic, and cachexic due to failure to thrive. They often have a concurrent respiratory tract infection. However, many may also be asymptomatic. The precordial exam may reveal a holosystolic and diastolic murmur in keeping with the abnormal flow of blood through the defect during the cardiac cycle. 3 4 Once the child progresses to Eisenmenger syndrome, they develop a dusky-blue

of schizophrenia: a framework for clinical care). The intrusion of psychosis at this stage may result in a severely truncated repertoire of social skills, and disrupted vocational and developmental trajectory, which can create lifelong socioeconomic disadvantage and failure to achieve the person’s full potential. Both the positive and negative symptoms of the disease can interfere with the person’s capacity to cope with the expectations of daily life. People with schizophrenia experience particular cognitive (...) and recreational activities. The lack of improvement in workforce participation is very disappointing, given that many people with schizophrenia express a desire to work, and most likely reflects a failure to develop effective vocational rehabilitation services. Improved vocational outcomes would have economic benefits, as well as improving social inclusion and quality of life. Early intervention for psychotic disorders has been shown to be cost-effective (Hastrup et al., 2013; McCrone et al., 2009). Further

(Gardener et al. 2006). Although many of these changes are inevitable at some point in life, the age at which they affect people – and how much they go on to become more serious health issues – will vary. Age-related changes can be made worse by personal, social and environmental circumstances. For example, having to care for an elderly parent, can lead to a reduced income and less time for leisure activities. Dementia, disability and frailty in later life affect individuals, families and society
