  • Whipple Disease

    The classic profile of the patient is that of a middle-aged man presenting with fever, chronic diarrhea, and arthralgias.[] A 72-year-old man presented with a 6-month history of dysphagia, fatigue, 60-lb weight loss, and central nervous system (CNS) deficits.[] Laboratory tests may provide several nonspecific findings that in combination can be suggestive of diagnoses such as: hypoalbuminemia, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate[] Whipple disease is a rare systemic bacterial infection characterized by migratory polyarthralgia and chronic diarrhea.[]

  • Behçet Disease

    An inflammatory work-up included a chest x-ray, Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), C-reactive protein (CRP), and complete blood count (CBC).[] I have gastrointestinal symptoms, ulcers throughout my GI tract, severe abdominal pains and chronic diarrhea, nausea/vomiting, eye inflammation— specifically Uveitis/Iritis[] We ask about general symptoms (anxious mood, depressed mood, fatigue, pain, and stress) regardless of condition.

  • Crohn's Disease

    Common laboratory findings include mild anemia, mild leukocytosis, elevated C-reactive protein (CRP), and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR).[] Diarrhea Diarrhea that lasts for more than 4 weeks is one of the most common symptoms of Crohn's, and it's caused by chronic inflammation.[] A 53-year-old man with Crohn's disease treated with adalimumab was hospitalised with abdominal pain, fatigue, fever and chills.[] Laboratory blood tests may show elevated white blood cell counts and sedimentation rates, both of which suggest infection or inflammation.[]

  • Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome

    diarrhea (over 1 month), diagnosed by histology or stool microscopy; (3) bronchial or pulmonary candidiasis, diagnosed by microscopy or by presence of characteristic white[] Fatigue was defined by patient self-report. The outcomes were the prevalence of fatigue and the potential risk factors of fatigue.[] The patient had a history of chronic diarrhea, progressive dyspnea and loss of approximately 20kg in eight months.[] Other common symptoms include chronic diarrhea and nerve problems.[]

  • Amebic Liver Abscess

    Pancreatits Pancreatic Pseudocyst Acute Bowel Disorders Diarrhea Lower GI Bleed Volvulus Appendicitis Ischemic Colitis Mesenteric Ischemia Small Bowel Obstruction Large Bowel[] However, it can invade your colon wall, causing symptoms of: fever colitis fatigue nausea diarrhea tenesmus bloody stools intestinal gas loss of appetite severe dehydration[] Diagnostic Tests/Procedures Lab: anemia, leukocytosis, an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and abnormal liver function tests, especially an elevated serum alkaline[] The diagnosis was based on: 1) clinical findings (right upper quadrant pain, fever, malaise or fatigue, vomiting, weight loss, hepatomegaly, and/or dehydration signs) 2) sonographic[]

  • Systemic Amyloidosis

    Erythrocyte sedimentation rate may be elevated in patients with a monoclonal protein and both erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein may be elevated in patients[] We report a case of systemic amyloidosis that presented primarily as chronic diarrhea in a patient with ankylosing spondylitis.[] These deposits damage normal tissues, leading to the symptoms or signs of this illness: Bleeding in the skin Fatigue Irregular heartbeat Numbness of hands and feet Rash Shortness[] Octreotide decreases diarrhea in many patients, but chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction usually is refractory to treatment.[]

  • Chronic Inflammation

    It was confirmed that increasing markers of inflammation followed increasing stages of colorectal cancer, depth of tumor invasion and the occurrence of metastatic disease.[] Here are 9 potential causes of chronic inflammation in the digestive tract… 1.[] Levels of habitual PA are lower in middle-aged and older adults with higher levels of chronic inflammation and greater self-reported fatigue.[] Lysosomal contents - neutrophils and monocytes - lysozyme, acid hydrolyses - controlled by alpha 1 antitrypsin and alpha 2 macro globulin 8.[]

  • Dermatomyositis

    Intravenous immune globulin (IVIG [Privigen]) (2 g per kilogram of body weight) was administered over 5 consecutive days.[] […] erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) (P 0.005, OR 9.9, 95%CI 2.0-49.0) were independent risk factors for in-hospital mortality of PM/DM patients.[] diarrhea or constipation Silent aspiration (where the voice sounds gurgly or wet after swallowing) Voice changes (hoarseness, pitch changes or gurgly voice) Nasal regurgitation[] Muscle weakness versus fatigue It may be easy to confuse muscle weakness with the general feeling of tiredness and weariness caused by fatigue.[]

  • Childhood Dermatomyositis

    Dermatomyositis and polymyositis have been linked to an increased cancer risk. Cancer, if present, generally determines the overall prognosis.[] Laboratory studies showed an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate of 24 mm/h. Blood work up revealed normal levels of calcium, phosphorus and PTH.[] diarrhea or constipation Silent aspiration (where the voice sounds gurgly or wet after swallowing) Voice changes (hoarseness, pitch changes or gurgly voice) Nasal regurgitation[] Muscle Inflammation causes muscle weakness , which can cause fatigue , clumsiness , not keeping up physically with peers, and eventually inability to perform tasks like climbing[]

  • Intestinal Tuberculosis

    In the present study, we used the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay on endoscopic biopsy specimens obtained from a patient with chronic diarrhea.[] […] a 31 year old HIV-positive woman, adherent to antiretroviral therapy, who presented with a 2 month history of progressive abdominal distention, drenching night sweat and fatigue[] DIAGNOSIS Laboratory tests Anaemia, lymphocytosis, and an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate are common in patients with tuberculosis.[] On univariate analysis, a long duration of illness, chronic diarrhea, and anemia were significantly more common in CD (P 0.05).[]
