109 Possible Causes for Cataract, Plasma Fibrinogen Increased

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Considering this, we reviewed the principles and guidelines of managing cataract in patients with diabetes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Quantitative changes in coagulation factors in patients with diabetes involve higher plasma levels of fibrinogen (the soluble precursor of solid fibrin), coagulation factor[nature.com] DIAGNOSES: The diagnoses of Diabetic cataracts, Type 1 diabetes and Diabetic retinopathy was made.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Polymyalgia Rheumatica

    "Comparator subject had less risk for developing cataracts than patients with PMR, but rates of other comorbidities were similar.[medpagetoday.com] These include higher blood sugar, weight gain, sleeplessness, osteoporosis (bone loss), cataracts, thinning of the skin and bruising.[rheumatology.org] If you're at increased risk of side-effects from steroid tablets (for example, if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, a recent fracture, peptic ulcer, cataract or glaucoma[arthritiscare.org.uk]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    […] taking prednisone for long periods of time, these effects can be significant, including weight gain (especially around the face and trunk), moodiness, sleep disturbances, cataracts[kidshealth.org] In conclusion, the increased risk of thrombosis in patients with renal failure is related to changes in the coagulation cascade with increased levels of fibrinogen and plasma[academic.oup.com] […] levels of plasma fibrinogen, d -dimer and plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI)-1 [ 62 ].[academic.oup.com]

  • Temporal Arteritis

    However, long term use can lead to complications including high blood pressure, cataracts and glaucoma. In this case, the benefits far out-weigh the risks.[kadrmaseyecare.com] Muscle weakness, cataracts and skin bruising also can occur with corticosteroid use. See your doctor often to check for side effects.[rheumatology.org] These include cataracts, bruising of skin, weight gain, and osteoporosis from cortisone medications.[medicinenet.com]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Surgically induced scleritis is a rare complication following ophthalmologic surgery such as cataract surgery, pterygium excision, strabismus surgery, and retinal detachment[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Prothrombotic state RA is associated with increased plasma levels of fibrinogen, von Willebrand factor, and plasminogen activator inhibitor 1, producing a prothrombotic state[web.archive.org] Steroids do have side effects, such as easy bruising, bone thinning, cataracts, and diabetes. Anti-rheumatic medicines can help treat RA.[familydoctor.org]

  • Preeclampsia

    […] petechiae, blue-berry muffin [purple skin lesions result of dermal erythropoiesis], cardiac defect, hepatosplenomegaly, intracranial calcification, chorioretinitis, and cataracts[doi.org]

  • Behçet Disease

    After 3 months of treatment the right eye underwent cataract surgery, after which the protocol was continued.[dx.doi.org] Cataract surgery in patients with Behçet’s disease. J Cataract Refract Surg. 2002;28:316–320. Matsuo T, et al.[eyewiki.aao.org] The right eye had ciliary injection, keratic precipitate, cells and flare 3 in the anterior chamber, dense posterior subcapsular cataract, 3 cells in the vitreous, normal[dx.doi.org]

  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    The most frequent forms of damage were cataracts (11.9%), and avascular necrosis (unilateral and bilateral combined 10.2%).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Posterior subcapsular cataracts and secondary open-angle glaucoma are common AE of the prolonged GC administration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Side effects of corticosteroids include weight gain, thinning of the bones and skin, infection, diabetes, facial puffiness, cataracts, and death (necrosis) of the tissues[medicinenet.com]

  • Radiation Exposure

    This case report supports experimental and epidemiological evidence implicating ultraviolet radiation as a risk factor for cataract formation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Overall, there is not conclusive evidence that the threshold dose for cataract formation should be reduced to 0.5 Gy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cumulative effects of ionizing radiation exposure from various imaging studies could potentially increase the risk for developing cataracts and solid malignancies in urolithiasis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
