69 Possible Causes for Abnormal Renal Function, Hyperreninemia, Hypokalemia

  • Scleroderma with Renal Involvement

    Case The relationship of hypertension and renal failure in scleroderma to structural and functional abnormalities of the renal cortical circulation Medicine, 53 (1974), pp[reumatologiaclinica.org] Hyperreninemia plays a major role in the pathogenesis of SRC.[em-consulte.com] RESULTS: Renal crisis occurred in 129/675 (19.5%) patients. Kidney function abnormalities or proteinuria were present in 173 (26%); 48% had no abnormalities.[jrheum.org]

  • Hypokalemic Nephropathy

    Certain herbal products, like licorice and gan cao may be causative for hypokalemia.[symbiosisonlinepublishing.com] […] leading to end-stage renal disease. gouty nephropathy any of a group of chronic kidney diseases associated with the abnormal production and excretion of uric acid.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] On the other hand, sustained hypokalemia and hyperreninemia can cause progressive tubulointerstitial nephritis, resulting in end-stage kidney disease (kidney failure).[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Malignant Hypertension

    Hypokalemia and urinary potassium loss were found.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abnormal renal function at presentation still predicts worse outcome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Initial evaluation demonstrated hyperreninemia with hyperaldosteronism and a possible renal artery stenosis at the contrast-enhanced CT scan.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Renal Tubular Acidosis

    Subsequently, type 1 RTA due to Sjögren's syndrome was unveiled by sustained hypokalemia (3.3 to 3.4 mEq/L), persistent alkaline urine pH ( 6.0) despite metabolic acidosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Admission blood tests demonstrated abnormal renal function with a urea of 22 mmol/l (normal: 2.5–7.0 mmol/l) and creatinine of 176 µmol/l (normal: 60–110 µmol/l).[academic.oup.com] Both effects cause hypotension with consequent hyperreninemia and hyperaldosteronism, which aggravates potassium wasting.[jpma.org.pk]

  • Proximal Renal Tubular Acidosis

    Hypokalemia may be associated with it; occasionally leading to features like hypokalemic periodic paralysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Marked deposition of iron in renal proximal tubules was associated with these functional abnormalities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Amniocentesis : chloride levels in amniotic fluid Laboratory diagnostics Hypokalemi a and m etabolic alkalosis Hypercalciuria Hyperuricemia ( 50% of cases) Hyperreninemia[amboss.com]

  • Distal Renal Tubular Acidosis

    The South East Asian cases are associated with more severe hypokalemia.[en.wikipedia.org] "New insights into the pathogenesis of renal tubular acidosis--from functional to molecular studies". Pediatr. Nephrol.14:1121–36. 8.[genetics.ouhsc.edu] Amniocentesis : chloride levels in amniotic fluid Laboratory diagnostics Hypokalemi a and m etabolic alkalosis Hypercalciuria Hyperuricemia ( 50% of cases) Hyperreninemia[amboss.com]

  • Gitelman Syndrome

    In these children, a tendency towards hypokalemia was first noted during the third week of life.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chronic Kidney/Renal Disease Kidney disease means that something is abnormal about the structure or function of one or both kidneys.[docplayer.net] Both probands show hypokalemia, hypochloraemia, hypocalcinuria, hyperreninemia, and hyperaldosteronemia; Proband A has normal serum magnesium and increased urinary sodium[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bartter's Disease

    Laboratory testing is significant for hypokalemia, hypochloremia, and metabolic alkalosis.[medbullets.com] Patients should avoid strenuous exercise avoided because of the danger of dehydration and functional cardiac abnormalities secondary to potassium imbalance. 56.[de.slideshare.net] Lab Metabolic alkalosis, decreased serum K , increased urine K , increased renin, increased aldosterone.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Hypercalcemic Nephropathy

    Also, as the calcium levels were higher, the frequency of hypokalemia was greatest. Why does hypercalcemia cause hypokalemia?[nephronpower.com] The calcium causes cumulative functional and histological abnormalities that lead to a decreased glomerular filtration rate and kidney failure. hypercalcemic nephropathy Renal[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] […] capacity is due to the presence of calcium in the medulla and the concurrent inflammation which distorts the relationship between the ascending and descending loops Because of hyperreninemia[slideshare.net]

  • Hypoaldosteronism

    A 51-year-old Japanese woman with hypokalemia due to distal renal tubular acidosis associated with Sjögren's syndrome exhibited a decreased plasma aldosterone level despite[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Despite only mildly abnormal renal function, serum K was elevated to 6.2 meq/L, and plasma renin activity (0.12 ng/mL h) and aldosterone (4.4 ng/ dL) failed to respond to[annals.org] These results suggest adrenal insensitivity to angiotensin II, possibly a defect in adrenal angiotensin II receptors, as the cause of hypoldosteronism with hyperreninemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
