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.[] Lower esophageal sphincter hypertension was observed in alcoholic subjects with autonomic neuropathy.[] 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[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Diabetes requiring insulin was significantly more common and hypertension less common with corticosteroids.[] 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[] Subsequently, the patient developed severe constipation and hypertension with tachycardia. Nerve conduction studies revealed demyelinating polyneuropathy.[]

  • Hyperkalemia

    OBJECTIVE: Recurrent hyperkalemia frequently limits use of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitors (RAASi) in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients with hypertension[] 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[] Familial hyperkalemia and hypertension (FHHt) is an inherited disorder manifested by hyperkalemia and hypertension.[]

  • 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.[] RESULTS: Duration of diabetes, the cardiovascular risk profile (hypertension, elevated LDL cholesterol and triglycerides), and other complications (e.g. nephropathy) were[] Other variables that were tested but were not significantly associated included gender, duration of hypertension, diastolic blood pressure and smoking.[]

  • 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.[] Abstract Secondary hypertension is responsible for less than 10% of cases of hypertension.[] We also provide an appraisal of the pathophysiology of "apparent mineralcorticoid excess" syndrome, still an often forgotten or unrecognized cause of hypokalemia and hypertension[]

  • 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[] Most people with PN have reduced or absent ankle reflexes (involuntary responses to a stimulus).[] "Fundus lesions in malignant hypertension. V. Hypertensive optic neuropathy". Ophthalmology. 93 (1): 74–87. doi : 10.1016/s0161-6420(86)33773-4.[]

  • 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.[] Ankle Reflex (Tendo-Achillis Reflex) - Diminished or absent reflexes when L4, 5 and S1 nerve is damaged. How is Lumbar Disk Herniation Diagnosed?[] 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.[]

  • 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[] ankle reflexes.[] The majority of ESRD cases arise in patients with Type 2 diabetes who initially present with microalbuminuria and hypertension.[]

  • Diabetic Polyneuropathy

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

  • Vasculitis

    Rheumatoid vasculitis is a rare etiology for pulmonary hypertension (PH) in patients with connective tissue disease.[] : 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[] Both were receiving hydralazine for the treatment of hypertension.[]
