  • Cronkhite-Canada Syndrome

    A 54-year-old woman, diagnosed as MDS the prior year after evaluation of anemia, visited our hospital with the chief complaint of epigastric discomfort.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Electrolyte and micronutrient determination is carried out to check for hypokalemia, hypocalcemia and depressed serum levels of Vitamin B-12, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc[symptoma.com] The blood test showed mild anemia and hypoalbuminemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pernicious Anemia

    However, 2 widely quoted reports from a single source linking a unique 14% mortality with hypokalemia during cobalamin treatment for severe anemia 21 reflect an association[doi.org] Pernicious anemia (Biermer's anemia, Addison's anemia) is a type of megaloblastic anemia, due to an inability to absorb vitamin B12 (cobalamin).[symptoma.com] Autoimmune hemolytic anemia coexisted with pernicious anemia but was diagnosed only when the anemia failed to respond to cobalamin therapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Colonic Polyp

    Most malignant • Overall size versus malignancy: 2cm 46% • Symptoms • Most are asymptomatic • Some may have diarrhea, especially villous tumors in rectum • May also produce hypokalemia[learningradiology.com] The result is iron deficiency anemia, which can make you feel tired and short of breath.[mayoclinic.com] Large villous adenomas may rarely cause watery diarrhea that may result in hypokalemia. Diagnosis of colonic polyps is usually made by colonoscopy.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Glucagonoma

    Octreotide can stop the diarrhea and allow for the correction of hypokalemia and other metabolic abnormalities in the majority of these patients.[surgery.wisc.edu] Anemia was diagnosed in 1998.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Islet cell tumor of the pancreas with peptic ulceration, diarrhea and hypokalemia.

    anemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This article describes a toddler who initially presented with recurrent diarrhea and weight loss with a significant secondary hypokalemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient had normal anion-gap metabolic acidosis (pH   7.16) with persisting hypokalemia, hyponatremia, hypomagnesemia and hypophosphatemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Malabsorption Syndrome

    One or more boratory alterations (increased erythrocyte sedimentaion rate, anemia, hypokalemia, and low serum albumin vel) were found in 62% of patients with organic diarrhea[doi.org] Abstract To evaluate the dual-isotope Schilling test for the diagnosis of pernicious anemia or malabsorption syndrome, 65 studies were selected for clinical correlation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ., methotrexate, sulfonamides, phenytoin ) Green leaves Other deficiencies Protein: edema, cachexia Iron deficiency anemia or microcytic anemia Electrolytes: hypokalemia or[amboss.com]

  • Ulcerative Colitis

    Hypoalbuminemia (albumin 3.5 g/dL), hypokalemia (postassium 3.5 mEq/L), elevated alkaline phosphatase, and hypomagnesemia (magnesium, 1.5 mg/dL) will be looked for in a comprehensive[symptoma.com] This patient was evaluated for iron deficiency anemia and underwent hemicolectomy for extensive right-side predominant inflammatory pseudopolyps.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] for anemia; thrombocytosis, a high platelet count, is occasionally seen Electrolyte studies and renal function tests are done, as chronic diarrhea may be associated with hypokalemia[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Short Bowel Syndrome

    Hypokalemia, however, is a potentially underrecognized cause of rhabdomyolysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] OBJECTIVES: Anastomotic ulcers are a known cause of anemia in children with a history of intestinal resection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The diagnosis is often delayed after a long-lasting history of refractory anemia. The pathogenesis remains unknown and there are no established therapies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anorexia Nervosa

    Nutritional support was begun slowly, however electrolyte derangements began to manifest on hospital day 2, with hypophosphatemia, hypokalemia, hypocalcemia, and hypomagnesemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other medical complications included pericardial tamponade that was treated with an open window pericardiocentesis, hepatitis, and anemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients with chronic emesis and use of cathartics present with classic metabolic disturbance: hypokalemia, hypochloremia, and metabolic alkalosis.[acphospitalist.org]

  • Sjogren's Syndrome

    She also had chronic hypokalemia and nephrolithiasis. Based on clinical presentation and work up, she was diagnosed with pSS and treated accordingly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Sjogren’s syndrome can present with a variety of symptoms These may include: Dry eyes and/or dry mouth Burning and numbness of the extremities Pain with sexual intercourse Anemia[hopkinssjogrens.org] Sjögren’s combination were also more likely to have blood abnormalities, including decreased numbers of platelets (thrombocytopenia) and decreased numbers of red blood cells (anemia[rheumatoidarthritis.net]
