137 Possible Causes for Anemia, Hypoglycemia, Impaired Judgement

  • Hypoglycemia

    On this page: What is hypoglycemia? What are the symptoms of hypoglycemia? What causes hypoglycemia in people with diabetes? How can hypoglycemia be prevented?[] Spurious hypoglycemia, hyperkalemia and hypoxemia in chronic hemolytic anemia. Isr J Med Sci. 1990 Nov. 26(11):606-10. [Medline]. Jokinen CH, Swaim WR, Nuttall FQ.[] Falls Injuries Motor vehicle accidents Hypoglycemia unawareness Over time, repeated episodes of hypoglycemia can lead to hypoglycemia unawareness.[]

  • Islet Cell Tumor

    A patient with a somatostatin (SRIH)-secreting islet cell tumor, whose only symptoms were dyspepsia and anemia, is described.[] Non-islet cell tumor hypoglycemia(NICTH) is a rare cause of recurrent hypoglycemia.[] Additionally, it leads to unintended weight loss, stomatitis, dermatitis, and anemia. Another severe complication of glucagonomas is thrombosis.[]

  • Myxedema

    High mortality (30-60%) How do patients present (clinical diagnosis) AMS Hypothermia Hypotension Respiratory Failure Hypoglycemia Hyponatremia Potential physical exam findings[] […] secondary to hemorrhage, or macrocytic anemia caused by vitamin B12 deficiency, or normocytic normochromic anemia, which may be secondary to decreased oxygen requirement[] Hypoglycemia – The reduction on the metabolic rate affects the conversion of carbohydrates into glucose leading to hypoglycemia.[]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Alcoholism & Hypoglycemia Alcoholism is the enhanced consumption of ethanol ( 120ml/day) and hypoglycemia is a condition where there is decreased blood glucose levels ( [[] HEME – Megaloblastic anemia from folate deficiency.[] Alcoholism may be linked to anemia, stroke, and pancreatitis.[]

  • Alcohol Abuse

    If you have diabetes , drinking can put you at risk of dangerously low blood sugar, or hypoglycemia.[] Laboratories revealed acute renal failure (BUN 15 mg/dL, creatinine 2.5 mg/dL), elevated serum transaminase (AST of 83 IU/L), hyperammonemia (187 ug/dL), and marked normocytic anemia[] If your stomach is empty enough, you could end up in hospital with hypoglycemia despite being under the legal driving limit.[]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    We call this interrelationship between congestive heart failure, chronic kidney insufficiency, and anemia the Cardio-Renal Anemia syndrome.[] They also can cause hypoglycemia [ 41 ].[] One of the most prevalent signs of chronic kidney insufficiency is anemia, seen in up to 50% of cases.[]

  • Liver Failure

    (DFX), an oral chelating agent, is used to treat chronic iron overload in several hematological diseases such as β-thalassemia, sickle cell disease, and myelodysplastic anemia[] The patient has the same mutation (c.547C T; p.Arg183Trp) as the first case and presented with neonatal lactic acidosis, hypoglycemia and severe episodes of liver failure.[] Abstract Oxymetholone, a steroid of proven clinical value in the treatment of refractory anemia, was without effect on endogenous or erythropoietin-mediated heme synthesis[]

  • Hepatic Encephalopathy

    […] visual judgement in the dysmetabolic brain: an fMRI study , NeuroImage , 22 , 2 , (541) , (2004) .[] […] measures for the treatment of acute hepatic encephalopathy include correction and avoidance of any factor that could potentially aggravate pre-existent encephalopathy, such as hypoglycemia[] These physiological alterations appeared to be associated with the degree of anemia, ammonia level, and liver function.[]

  • Drug-induced Hypoglycemia

    This case report comprises three cases of antipsychotic drug-induced hypoglycemia and hypothermia.[] D59.0 -- Drug-induced hemolytic anemia D59.2 -- Drug-induced nonautoimmune hemolytic anemia D61.1 -- Drug-induced aplastic anemia D64.2 -- Secondary sideroblastic anemia[] Primaquine can cause massive hemolysis in patients with G6PD deficiency Anemia is a common feature in malaria, especially in children.[]

  • Factitious Hypoglycemia

    Factitious hypoglycemia typically occurs in adolescents with type 1 diabetes who use insulin to induce hypoglycemia.[] A case of factitious aplastic anemia. Int J Psychiatry Med. 2001;31(4):433-441. Ford CV, Stein R, Kelly MP, Adelson LM. Factitial aplastic anemia. J Nerv Ment Dis.[] Both were admitted because of persistent hypoglycemia. Analyses of serum samples obtained at the time of hypoglycemia initially showed low insulin and C-peptide levels.[]
