  • Hypotension

    Delayed orthostatic hypotension.[dizziness-and-balance.com] Symptoms generally include dizziness, blurred vision, and syncope.[icd9data.com] The clinical features are similar to Addison's disease but usually with less pronounced hypovolaemia.[patient.info]

  • Addison's Disease

    Signs and symptoms include low blood pressure, nausea and vomiting, syncope, hypoglycemia, hyponatremia, hyperkalemia, a metabolic acidosis, lethergy, confusion, and convulsions[openanesthesia.org] Orthostatic hypotension, fever, and hypoglycemia characterize acute adrenal crisis, whereas chronic primary adrenal insufficiency presents with a more insidious history of[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Addison’s disease is a chronic clinical disease characterized by the progressive decline in the function of the adrenal glands.[symptoma.com]

  • Orthostatic Hypotension

    The drop in blood pressure may be sudden (vasovagal orthostatic hypotension), within 3 minutes (classic orthostatic hypotension) or gradual (delayed orthostatic hypotension[en.wikipedia.org] , the most common cause of syncope.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The disorder may be associated with Addison's disease, diabetes, and certain neurological disorders including Multiple System Atrophy with Orthostatic Hypotension (formerly[ninds.nih.gov]

  • Syncope

    […] for syncope is identified.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In this article, we review POTS, orthostatic hypotension, and NMS with an emphasis on NMS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Blood work including a chemistry panel, CBC, thyroid test and possibly ACTH stimulation to rule out Addison’s disease.[canine-epilepsy.com]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency Secondary to Hypopituitarism

    hypotension, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, hyponatremia, hypoglycemia, mild anemia, increased WBCs, eosinophilia 2 0 adrenal insufficiency Pallor of skin, amenorrhea, libido[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Syncope or dizziness (due to hypotension).

  • Dehydration

    Patients presenting with orthostatic hypotension and normal plasma sodium concentrations are frequently admitted to the hospital with a diagnosis of dehydration.[doi.org] Plus, dehydration can aggravate a tendency toward syncope, making the likelihood of fainting higher.[tiphero.com] Certain disorders such as diabetes mellitus , diabetes insipidus , and Addison disease can increase the excretion of urine and thereby lead to dehydration.[merckmanuals.com]
