68 Possible Causes for Cardiac Arrhythmia, Hyperreninemia, Hypokalemia

  • Gitelman Syndrome

    GS clinical symptoms range from mild weakness to muscular cramps, paralysis or even sudden death as a result of cardiac arrhythmia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In these children, a tendency towards hypokalemia was first noted during the third week of life.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cardiac work-up should be offered to screen for risk factors of cardiac arrhythmias. All GS patients are encouraged to maintain a high-sodium and high potassium diet.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bartter's Disease

    Laboratory testing is significant for hypokalemia, hypochloremia, and metabolic alkalosis.[medbullets.com] Lab Metabolic alkalosis, decreased serum K , increased urine K , increased renin, increased aldosterone.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Saint-Petersburg, Russia Abstract Abstract Bartter syndrome (BS) tubulopathy with autosomal recessive (AR) type of genetic inheritance, manifested hypokalemia, metabolic alkalosis, hyperreninemia[adc.bmj.com]

  • Metabolic Alkalosis

    Hypokalemia seen with heat stress is secondary to sweat as well as renal potassium wasting.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Three patients with hypokalemia, normal blood pressure, metabolic alkalosis, hyperreninemia and hyperaldosteronism are described.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] *increased pH *Increased HCO3 accumulation of HCO3 or decrease in H concentration *if left untreated can cause cardiac arrhythmia, coma, or death vomiting or gastric suction[quizlet.com]

  • Conn Syndrome

    Hypernatremia, hypervolemia and hypokalemia are common.[symptoma.com] When renin increases (due to low blood pressure, decreased blood flow to the kidneys or to a sodium deficiency), aldosterone increases; when renin decreases, aldosterone decreases.In[labtestsonline.org.au] Condition similar to Conn's syndrome may be caused by kidneys that can produce an excessive amount of renin.[health-tutor.com]

  • Hypokalemia

    MayoClinic.com: Low potassium (hypokalemia) MedicineNet.com: Low Potassium (Hypokalemia) eMedicineHealth.com: Low Potassium (Hypokalemia) Content of Selected Foods per Common[en.wikipedia.org] One complication from aggressive diuresis is hypokalemia; however, in these patients we tolerate a lower potassium level because cardiac arrhythmias are not a concern.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Early detection and treatment allow clinician to prevent morbidity and mortality from cardiac arrhythmias and respiratory failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bartter Syndrome

    Hypokalemia was corrected only on addition of spironolactone on day 11.[sjkdt.org] Lab Metabolic alkalosis, decreased serum K , increased urine K , increased renin, increased aldosterone.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Although rare, if untreated, these cardiac arrhythmias can potentially progress to cause sudden cardiac arrest and potentially sudden death.[rarediseases.org]

  • Gullner Syndrome

    Clinically evocated by signs of hypokalemia and confirmed by biologic studies.[accessanesthesiology.mhmedical.com] Prognosis      early diagnosis and appropriate treatment may improve growth and neurointellectual development. sustained hypokalemia and hyperreninemia can cause progressive[slideshare.net] Gullner HG, Gill JR Jr, Bartter FC, et al: A familial disorder with hypokalemic alkalosis, hyperreninemia, aldosteronism, high urinary prostaglandins and normal pressure that[accessanesthesiology.mhmedical.com]

  • Metabolic Acidosis

  • Antenatal Bartter Syndrome

    Although rare, if untreated, these cardiac arrhythmias can potentially progress to cause sudden cardiac arrest and potentially sudden death.[rarediseases.org] Hypokalemia and alkalosis with hypertension: Hyperaldosterism Monogenetic forms of hypertension Renal artery stenosis Cushing syndrome Hypokalemia and alkalosis with normal[cancertherapyadvisor.com] Rofecoxib suppressed hyperreninemia to a similar extent as indomethacin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypoaldosteronism

    arrhythmias.[symptoma.com] A 51-year-old Japanese woman with hypokalemia due to distal renal tubular acidosis associated with Sjögren's syndrome exhibited a decreased plasma aldosterone level despite[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These results suggest adrenal insensitivity to angiotensin II, possibly a defect in adrenal angiotensin II receptors, as the cause of hypoldosteronism with hyperreninemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
