339 Possible Causes for Absent Ankle Reflex, Hypertension

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    They studied 23 high-dose chronic alcohol consumers, 27 individuals with long-standing hypertension, and 11 healthy controls.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Lower esophageal sphincter hypertension was observed in alcoholic subjects with autonomic neuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This link between heavy drinkers and the risk factor of stroke has been considered as hypertension, liver dysfunction, abnormality of platelet function or other unknown mechanisms[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Diabetes requiring insulin was significantly more common and hypertension less common with corticosteroids.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] F waves implicates nerve root involvement delayed/absent H reflex correlates with decreased/absent ankle reflex MRI cauda equina gandolinium enhancement in acute cases DIfferential[step2.medbullets.com] Subsequently, the patient developed severe constipation and hypertension with tachycardia. Nerve conduction studies revealed demyelinating polyneuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hyperkalemia

    OBJECTIVE: Recurrent hyperkalemia frequently limits use of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitors (RAASi) in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients with hypertension[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of increasing dietary potassium on serum potassium concentration in hypertensive individuals with normal renal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Familial hyperkalemia and hypertension (FHHt) is an inherited disorder manifested by hyperkalemia and hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy

    No other underlying cause of the hypertension was discovered. Rechallenge of the patient with octreotide resulted in a transient hypertensive episode, which lasted 3 h.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RESULTS: Duration of diabetes, the cardiovascular risk profile (hypertension, elevated LDL cholesterol and triglycerides), and other complications (e.g. nephropathy) were[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other variables that were tested but were not significantly associated included gender, duration of hypertension, diastolic blood pressure and smoking.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypokalemia

    Two middle-aged Chinese females were admitted to our emergency department for muscular weakness and limb pain, and both have the history of early onset hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Secondary hypertension is responsible for less than 10% of cases of hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We also provide an appraisal of the pathophysiology of "apparent mineralcorticoid excess" syndrome, still an often forgotten or unrecognized cause of hypokalemia and hypertension[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    Complementary and Alternative Medicine for Diabetes Cardiovascular Protection in People With Diabetes Screening for the Presence of Cardiovascular Disease Dyslipidemia Treatment of Hypertension[diabetes.ca] Most people with PN have reduced or absent ankle reflexes (involuntary responses to a stimulus).[thebody.com] "Fundus lesions in malignant hypertension. V. Hypertensive optic neuropathy". Ophthalmology. 93 (1): 74–87. doi : 10.1016/s0161-6420(86)33773-4.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Lumbar Disk Herniation

    A protuberant belly should hang as freely as possible to reduce venous hypertension. The ulnar nerves at the elbow are padded to prevent neuropathy.[emedicine.medscape.com] Ankle Reflex (Tendo-Achillis Reflex) - Diminished or absent reflexes when L4, 5 and S1 nerve is damaged. How is Lumbar Disk Herniation Diagnosed?[epainassist.com] Test your reflexes at the knee and ankle. These may sometimes be absent if there is a compressed nerve root in your spine. Straight leg raise (SLR) test.[orthoinfo.aaos.org]

  • Diabetic Nephropathy

    Approach Considerations Several issues are key in the medical care of patients with diabetic nephropathy. [20, 21] These include glycemic control, management of hypertension[emedicine.medscape.com] ankle reflexes.[sjkdt.org] The majority of ESRD cases arise in patients with Type 2 diabetes who initially present with microalbuminuria and hypertension.[mayo.edu]

  • Diabetic Polyneuropathy

    An abnormal Achilles tendon reflex (ATR) and insulin treatment, but not smoking, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and diabetic retinopathy, were associated with DPN.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The ankle tendon reflex was absent in almost half of our patients (40.4 %).[em-consulte.com] The adjusted hazard ratio was calculated and adjusted for age, sex, duration of diabetes and comorbidities of hypertension, cardiovascular disease and diabetic nephropathy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Vasculitis

    Rheumatoid vasculitis is a rare etiology for pulmonary hypertension (PH) in patients with connective tissue disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] : Absent at ankles (43%) Progression Slow over years Duration at presentation: Mean 5 years Diabetes: 12%; Less frequent than controls Antibodies Serum IgM target: Trisulfated[neuromuscular.wustl.edu] Both were receiving hydralazine for the treatment of hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
