These are requirements for forum initial posts and cases studies: ALWAYS first present relevant background information and normal physiological content with citations. THEN cover the questions in DETAIL. Please use correct medical/ physiological terminology at all times. (You are presenting to your peers and to me, not your patients).
Forum posts: Correctly cite all sources. Follow up posts (TWO minimum are required) must be meaningful – do not just say “great post” or “recycle” previous posts. Those will NOT be counted. You are urged to mention your clinical experiences in posts.
3. PLEASE ESPECIALLY NOTE – AVOID PLAGIARISM (even the appearance of it): please see the Syllabus. The policy will be strictly followed.
Multiple sources are required for initial forum postings and the case studies. Do NOT use direct quotations or do NOT just copy content from sources and then cite. ALWAYS paraphrase content in your OWN words and then cite. Note that Wiki’s, dot-orgs, dot-coms, encyclopediae, etc. are NOT legitimate sources. Provide the page number if you cite from your text.
Plagiarism includes: direct quotations, copying content in any way shape or form, copying from students, copying directly from the text, copying material from internet answer pools, the publisher or any source that you should not access as students. Your case study submissions will be checked using Turnitin plagiarism software. Please see the course Syllabus.

Please explained the pathophysiology of the patient condition and explained the cellular function and cellular damages Mandy Case Study
Mandy is a 16-year-old competitive figure skater who practices several hours a day with her coach at the skating arena. Because of her extremely active lifestyle and restricted diet to maintain her athletic physique, she experiences ongoing amenorrhea. One day during practice, she landed a jump and fell to the ice in pain. Her left foot swelled up almost immediately, making it difficult for her coach to remove the skate. At the hospital, radiographs revealed a fracture of the fifth metatarsal bone and general radiolucency of all the bones in her foot. A follow-up DXA revealed a bone mass of 2.7 standard deviations below mean.
1. What is the etiology of Mandy’s premature osteoporosis, and how her condition is thought to contribute to a decrease in bone density?
2. Knowing what you do about bone mineralization, why does a deficiency of estrogen in women lead to osteoporotic change?
3. Osteoporosis and osteomalacia both involve abnormal bone mineralization. What are the general macroscopic differences of these two conditions?
5 pages for this assignment please. No title page, no conclusion. follow direction as stated above. I will send a sample from another student as well.
