  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Ethanol also causes structural abnormalities in the liver mitochondria which leads to ketosis superimposed by starvation, chronic malnutrition [ 13, 14 ].[] arrhythmia may occur.[] Heavy drinking can affect the electrical impulses in the heart, which may result in cardiac arrhythmia that could be fatal.[]

  • Vomiting of Pregnancy

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 0

    Some individuals with muscle GSD 0 have a disruption of the heart's normal rhythm (arrhythmia) known as long QT syndrome.[] In all affected individuals, muscle GSD 0 impairs the heart's ability to effectively pump blood and increases the risk of cardiac arrest and sudden death, particularly after[]
