142 Possible Causes for Chloride Decreased, Cushing's Disease

  • ACTH-Secreting Pituitary Adenoma

    Cushing’s Disease vs.[mskcc.org] Abstract An 18-month old infant with Cushing's disease due to an ACTH producing pituitary tumor is presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH)-dependent Cushing's syndrome, called Cushing disease, is caused by a corticotroph tumor of the pituitary gland.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Adrenocortical Carcinoma

    This was suggestive of primary adrenal disease as cortisol levels normally suppress to less than 50% of basal levels in pituitary driven Cushing’s disease.[pmj.bmj.com]

  • Iatrogenic Cushing's Disease

    Iatrogenic Cushing's disease (iatrogenic Cushing's syndrome) is the most common cause of cushingoid symptoms.[symptoma.com] Prednisone reduction will eventually reduce Cushing’s Disease.[secondchanceaihadogs.com] That, and it's side effects, are all Cushing's Syndrome is (not Cushing's Disease, which is specifically caused by a pituitary adenoma and by definition cannot be iatrogenic[forums.studentdoctor.net]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Increases in renin, mediated by a decreased stretch of the glomerular afferent arteriole, reduce delivery of chloride to the macula densa and increase beta1-adrenergic activity[emedicine.com] Endocrine - eg, diabetes, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Cushing's syndrome, adrenal insufficiency, excessive growth hormone, phaeochromocytoma.[patient.info] […] as a response to decreased cardiac output.[emedicine.com]

  • Addison's Disease

    Classically, patients affected with Addison's disease develop weakness, anorexia, electrolyte imbalances: decreased sodium and chloride with increased serum potassium resulting[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cushing’s disease is another disorder that leads to excess cortisol in the body.[web.archive.org] With Addison’s disease when cortisol is low, there is low sodium, low chlorides, and resulting high potassium in blood serum. There is often times metabolic acidosis.[earthclinic.com]

  • Small Cell Carcinoma of the Lung

    He received an intravenous injection of edrophonium chloride with remarkable improvement of muscle strength.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Electromyographic studies revealed a compound muscle action potential that decreased after repetitive stimulation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Respiratory Acidosis

    Arterial pH: Decreased, less than 7.35. Electrolytes : Serum potassium : Typically increased. Serum chloride: Decreased. Serum calcium: Increased.[nurseslabs.com] 3 Care Plans Cushing’s Disease 6 Care Plans Diabetes Mellitus Type 1 (Juvenile Diabetes) 4 Care Plans Diabetes Mellitus Type 2 13 Care Plans Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) and[nurseslabs.com] One or more of the electrolytes will be increased or decreased in people with acid-base disorders such as respiratory acidosis.[healthline.com]

  • Addisonian Crisis

    Sodium, potassium, chloride and carbon dioxide are measured to help detect and evaluate the severity of an existing electrolyte imbalance and to monitor the effectiveness[labtestsonline.org] In addition to these notes, don’t forget to review the NCLEX notes on Addison’s Disease vs Cushing’s.[registerednursern.com] Another cause of secondary adrenal insufficiency is the surgical removal of benign, or noncancerous, ACTH-producing tumors of the pituitary gland (Cushings disease).[pituitary.org]

  • Bacterial Meningitis

    Tubercular Meningitis - insidious onset, slight changes in CSF chemistry, positive tuberculin, low chloride.[atsu.edu] What other disease/condition shares some of these symptoms? Viral meningitis and fungal meningitis can have some of the symptoms and signs.[clinicaladvisor.com] The constellation of systemic hypertension, bradycardia, and respiratory depression (Cushing triad) is a late sign of increased intracranial pressure.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuretic Hormone Secretion

    The sodium and chloride levels decreased continuously during treatment with citalopram; six days after the citalopram was discontinued, sodium and chloride levels returned[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] syndrome ( E24.- ) Nelson's syndrome ( E24.1 ) overproduction of ACTH not associated with Cushing's disease ( E27.0 ) overproduction of pituitary ACTH ( E24.0 ) overproduction[icd10data.com] Petrosal sinus sampling with and without corticotrophinreleasing hormone for the differential diagnosis of Cushing’s syndrome. N Engl J Med 325: 896, 1991.[link.springer.com]
