452 Possible Causes for Acidosis, Blood Urea Nitrogen Increased

  • Acute Kidney Failure

    Metformin associated lactic acidosis (MALA) is a serious complication occurring especially in elderly patients given high doses of the drug.[] Introduction Acute renal failure (ARF) is defined as an acute decline in renal function characterized by an increase in blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and serum creatinine values[] urea nitrogen (bun) and serum creatinine concentrations.[]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    Metabolic acidosis Metabolic acidosis often is a mixture of normal anion gap and increased anion gap; the latter is observed generally with stage 5 CKD but with the anion[] There may also be an increase of acid in the blood. Blood urea nitrogen test Blood urea nitrogen can become elevated when your kidneys start to fail.[] Yet, we know foods rich in animal protein lead to metabolic acidosis.[]

  • Dehydration

    We report a case of a 4-day-old neonate presenting with 18% weight loss, hypernatremic dehydration and metabolic acidosis.[] Serum osmolality, electrolytes, and blood urea nitrogen to creatinine (BUN:Cr) ratio were used to identify dehydration.[] In geriatric populations lactic acidosis due to diminishing kidney function is an issue.[]

  • Hypovolemia

    Among crystalloids, the use of normal saline is implicated with the development of hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis and renal vasoconstriction.[] Hypovolemia lab values These are the changes you will encounter in the lab tests for hypovolemia: Sodium excretion increased Specific gravity increased BUN (blood urea nitrogen[] The proof that a patient is in shock with normal blood pressure is the appearance of metabolic acidosis due to some organ hypoperfusion.[]

  • Diabetic Ketotic Coma

    Clinically, they differ only by the degree of dehydration and the severity of metabolic acidosis.[] nitrogen concentration) were associated with increased risk for cerebral edema.[] acidosis.[]

  • Hypovolemic Shock

    acidosis and anemia.[] There is elevated potassium, serum lactate, and blood urea nitrogen levels. Urine characteristics. The urine specific gravity and urine osmolality are increased.[] The Answer • Lactic acidosis, considered a type of metabolic acidosis, is a physiological condition characterized by low pH in body tissues and blood (acidosis) accompanied[]

  • Addison's Disease

    Signs and symptoms include low blood pressure, nausea and vomiting, syncope, hypoglycemia, hyponatremia, hyperkalemia, a metabolic acidosis, lethergy, confusion, and convulsions[] We describe a case of Addison's disease who was initially misdiagnosed as a case of meningo-encephalitis subsequently renal tubular acidosis and finally Addison's disease.[] There is often times metabolic acidosis.[]

  • Electrical Injury

    Documented loss of consciousness Dysrhythmias, abnormal EKG, or evidence of myocardial damage Suspicion of deep tissue damage Myoglobinuria or acidosis Burn criteria...[] acidosis.[] acidosis supportive management Specific Therapy burns: early debridement and grafting, fasciotomies /- amputations ischaemic/necrotic tissue: debridement tetanus antibiotics[]

  • Cardiogenic Shock

    Besides the severity of lactic acidosis there were no strong predictors of early death.[] Arterial blood gas analysis may show metabolic acidosis and hypoxia. Electrocardiography.[] Arterial blood gas can demonstrate acidosis and hypoxemia states.[]

  • Renal Tubular Acidosis

    The metabolic acidosis caused by RTA is a normal anion gap acidosis.[] It may be due to metabolic acidosis, usually in children with a hereditary defect in urine acidification.[] The metabolic acidosis that results from RTA may be caused either by failure to reabsorb sufficient bicarbonate ions (which are alkaline) from the filtrate in the early portion[]
