14 Possible Causes for Bicarbonate Decreased, Cognitive Defect, Slow Speech

  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication

    speech ( n 21; 8.20%), imbalance ( n 25; 9.77%) Passive ( n 43; 16.80%), somnolence ( n 62; 24.21%), slow speech ( n 72; 28.13%), impossible assess balance ( n 78; 30.47%[academic.oup.com] […] in serum bicarbonate concentration.[cjasn.asnjournals.org] Confusion, slurred speech. Internal (stomach and intestinal) bleeding. Slowed breathing. Stupor (decreased level of alertness), even coma. Unsteady walking.[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heat Stroke

    Alkalinizing agents: These medicines, such as potassium and sodium bicarbonate, decrease the amount of acid in your blood and urine. This helps prevent organ damage.[drugs.com]

  • Cerebral Edema

    In addition, bicarbonate therapy causes central nervous system hypoxia in laboratory animals with diabetic ketoacidosis. 33 Hyperglycemia superimposed on an ischemic insult[nejm.org] Theories include osmotic disequilibrium between brain and plasma as glucose is rapidly lowered, decreased plasma oncotic pressure due to infusion of large amounts of saline[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] children with diabetic ketoacidosis is related to brain ischemia. 24,32 Both hypocapnia, which causes cerebral vasoconstriction, and extreme dehydration would be expected to decrease[nejm.org]

  • Hyponatremia

    The patient displayed slowed speech and some difficulty with balance and gait. Potassium and creatinine levels were within normal limits.[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com] 15% to 20%, hyperchloremic acidosis, decreased serum bicarbonate level, potassium abnormalities (type dependent) Correct acidosis, sodium bicarbonate Salt-wasting nephropathies[aafp.org] […] mannitol use Correct glucose level, stop mannitol use Renal tubular acidosis Urinary osmolar gap, increased urinary pH, urinary sodium 25 mEq per L, fractional excretion of bicarbonate[aafp.org]

  • Hypercapnia

    So 5 stars because the concepts well explained; clear slow speech, physical laws explained, and contrasted with diseases. I would love to hear more lessons from you.[lecturio.com] The increase in PaCO 2 , in turn, decreases the bicarbonate (HCO 3 – )/PaCO 2 ratio, thereby decreasing the pH.[emedicine.medscape.com] The renal system participates in acid-base regulation by increasing or decreasing levels of bicarbonate (HCO3-).[rtmagazine.com]

  • High Altitude Cerebral Edema

    One climber suffered aphasia (problems with speech), from which he recovered six months later.[scientificamerican.com] It is a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor that causes a bicarbonate diuresis and metabolic acidosis.[lifeinthefastlane.com] Two complained of transient memory loss after returning, and three others struggled with bradypsychia (slowed mental function).[scientificamerican.com]

  • Congenital Malformations of Other Endocrine Glands

    Slow growth Delayed puberty Hoarse voice Slow speech Droopy eyelids Puffy and swollen face Hair loss Dry skin Slow pulse Weight gain (modest, no more than 5-10 lbs) The symptoms[stanfordchildrens.org] […] reabsorption after bicarbonate loading, reduced hydrogen secretion in the distal nephron, a decreased urinary – blood PCO 2 gradient typical of dRTA and the impaired ability[thetrp.net] […] diagnosed late may have substantial cognitive and behavioral defects 34.[slideshare.net]

  • Autoimmune Polyendocrine Syndrome Type 2

    […] language, slow to speak and to comprehend, with verbal perseverations (such as answering with the time at each question), or echoing questions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] sodium, bicarbonate, and chloride levels Decreased basal levels of cortisol, no increase after ACTH or cosyntropin (Cortrosyn) administration Decreased basal levels of aldosterone[aafp.org] Decreased sodium, bicarbonate and chloride, increased potassium levels, and mild to moderate increased calcium level can be seen [4].[casereports.in]

  • Pyroglutamate Hydrolase Deficiency

    These problems may include seizures ; a generalized slowing down of physical reactions, movements, and speech ( psychomotor retardation ); intellectual disability ; and a[ipfs.io] […] acidosis Diagnosis Serum Chemistry Serum Bicarbonate : decreased Serum Chloride : hyperchloremia Anion Gap : normal Calculation of Anion Gap Na – (Cl HCO3) Anion gap reflects[mdnxs.com] defect Autosomal recessive cerebellar ataxia - epilepsy - intellectual deficit Autosomal recessive cerebellar ataxia - psychomotor retardation Autosomal recessive cerebellar[csbg.cnb.csic.es]

  • Fetal Akinesia - Cerebral and Retinal Hemorrhage Syndrome

    […] cortex aphasia inability to perform purposeful acts or to use objects properly apraxia abnormal condition characterized by impaired ability to coordinate movement ataxia slowing[studystack.com] , Blood Arsenic Increased, Blood Bicarbonate Decreased, Blood Bicarbonate Increased, Blood Bilirubin Increased, Blood Bilirubin Unconjugated Increased, Blood Calcium Decreased[bonkersinstitute.org] […] dysfunction defective vision or blindness in half the visual field hemianopia paralysis of one side of the body hemiplegia neurologic condition characterized by increased[studystack.com]
