The human digestive system comprises the intestine tract and the digestion organs. It involves the diet ad assimilation of food we eat. A healthy digestive system is crucial to the body’s immune and helps to overcome almost 70% of health conditions. Acne inflammatory and chronic skin condition characterized by pimples in the skin is common in adolescence. It is caused by inflammation of sebaceous glands. The glands produce the oily substance which is stimulated by the adrenal glands. Her GP recommends she take plenty of vegetables and fruits. This is because vegetables supply vitamins A and E and zinc which help reduce more severe acne and also regulate hormonal levels. Coca-cola drink is acidic, and excess acid in the body causes acidosis. Acidosis causes fatigue, loss of enthusiasm, and other symptoms. Fruits and vegetables help reduce this effect. Tiredness and fatigue experienced by Mrs. Brown could be caused by iron deficiency anemia caused by low red blood cell count. This fatigue can also result from heavy menstrual flow or pregnancy. Eating dark green vegetables and drinking less acidic drinks can help increase the blood count.
BMI below 18.5 is considered underweight. Ms. Brown has a low BMI of 18.5 which is close to being underweight. Her Gp advises her to take a balanced diet. High-calorie food such as fat and regular exercise will help to improve and maintain the BMI in the healthy range. Bloating is excess gas being dropped in the digestive system. High Coca-Cola intakes may have caused bloating especially when drinking using a straw since the air proceeds the drink. This causes unnecessary stomach discomfort. Women are instructed to have a healthy diet (Gardener 2004)
The system involves chemical hormones, glands, and circulatory chemical messengers to targeted organs and homeostatic feedback. The system helps in regulating body functions such as metabolism, growth, sexual functions, sleep, moods, and other health functions.
An increase in androgen hormone, which rises during adolescence causes the growth of the oil gland under the skin. The enlarged glands produce more sebum which causes facial acne. A healthy diet is recommended by the GP, and an active lifestyle helps to regulate androgen levels. Hypothyroidism is a condition caused by the underactive thyroid gland. This leads to having a low amount of thyroxine hormone which makes one feel fatigued, depressed, aching muscles, and dry skin. Medication from the GP helps control the medical condition.
The system involves blood circulation and transportation of metabolic products in and out of the body cells. The proper cardiovascular system is essential for general nourishment, an improved immune system, and homeostatic function. Experts say headaches hits when the blood vessel in the skull swell stretching the nerves around them hence causing pain. Inflammation of the blood vessels, blood clots,s or bleeding in the brain can cause a headache. Disorders in muscles and nerves in the head or neck can lead to the change of chemical activity hence also leading to headaches. The inflammations are caused by dehydration or stress. Caffeinated drinks also cause a headache. Ms. Brown’s GP advises her to take 2 liters of water per day. Taking water helps improve the blood volume level hence proper oxygen circulation in the brain. Regular physical activity improves mental and physical well being which reduces stress. Research shows that Coca-Cola contains 32 mg of caffeine per 200 grams of the drink. Refraining from caffeine helps to reduce a headache.
The lymphatic and immune system
The system is composed of the lymph vessels and the immune system which help fight against foreign antigens. A weak immune system causes one to be susceptible to diseases. Vegetables and fruits help in boosting the immune system. Has major immunological importance (Holt 2008)
The system is composed of the upper respiratory tract; nose, pharynx, sinuses, and lynx. The lower respiratory tract: trachea, lungs, diaphragm, and segments of bronchioles and alveoli .respiratry system involves the passage of air through the vessels lung and the breathing muscle. It aids in the circulation of respiratory gases between air and blood. oxygen to the cell is essential for the metabolism and nourishment of general health. The system filters breathing air such as dust which may cause allergic conditions. It also defense against disease-causing microbes. the system is also responsible for the regulation of homeostatic function by regulating blood ph. This is monitoring carbon (iv)oxide levels. it also helps in water regulation by exhaling excess water. Tuberculosis, influenza chronic pulmonary disease asthma among other diseases are conditions caused by dysfunction in the urinary system
The system consists of the renal system (kidney ureter bladder urethra ) which helps in the elimination of waste products in the body, and regulation of blood volume, water, and other body metabolites. It is the drainage system for the excess products in the form of urine. The kidney contains numerous blood vessels and nephrons for the purification of blood. Urine production is involved with health conditions such as diabetes and gout. NMDA receptor has a major role in memory(Kampa 2008)

|Type of Disease||Name of disease||Why Mr. Ali is at risk||Effects|
|Deficiency – there is a lack of certain nutrients and minerals in the body.
Degeneration-certain minerals start to diminish and organs or tissue lose vitality
Infectious diseases- are diseases that are transmitted from one person to another, especially through breath.
the office hence less exposure to sunlight. This causes a deficiency of vitamin D leading to the disease.

The disease cannot be transmitted from one person to another. it can be a result of an unhealthy lifestyle.
High blood pressure
