65 Possible Causes for Chronic Diarrhea, Flattened T Wave

  • Digitalis Toxicity

    Electrocardiographic signs of digitalis toxicity include first-degree atrioventricular (A-V) block with depressed S-T segments, shortened Q-T intervals, and flattened T waves[] Some gastrointestinal symptoms that can be seen with acute or chronic toxicity include the following: Weight loss, anorexia, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain, diarrhea and[] The normal features of digitalis toxicity include: delirium, confusion, dizziness, headache, abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea and anorexia.[]

  • Quinidine

    T waves (without dysrhythmia), have occurred frequently and hypotension and ventricular tachycardia have occurred occasionally in patients receiving IV quinidine gluconate[] Cinchonism is most often a sign of chronic toxicity but may appear in sensitive patients after a single dose.[] […] measures may be required. b While substantial cardiovascular toxicity generally has not occurred, ECG changes, including prolonged QT interval, widened QRS complex, and flattened[]

  • Digoxin

  • Hypokalemia

    Failures to thrive, chronic diarrhea, vomiting abdominal distension are usual symptoms.[] […] than the T wave. flattening of the T wave.[] Here, we describe a case of severe hypokalemia inducing pseudoischemic electrocardiographic (ECG) alterations and quadriplegia, in a patient affected by chronic diarrhea.[]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    Acute or chronic Diarrhea. Vomiting. Uncontrolled diabetes. Addison’s disease. Heat exhaustion. Elderly people who take a diet inadequate in potassium.[] Clinical signs of hyperkalaemia include muscle weakness, hypotension , bradycardia and loss of cardiac output, and ECG changes may include peaked T waves and flattened P waves[] Common causes of low magnesium include alcoholism and its associated malnutrition, chronic diarrhea , and medications like diuretics (water pills used to control high blood[]

  • Laxative Abuse

    ECG revealed sinus rhythm with a left axis deviation, T-wave flattening but no U waves. Renal ultrasound showed normal sized kidneys with no evidence of hydronephrosis.[] diarrhea.[] […] with chronic diarrhea.[]

  • Lithium Toxicity

    The various signs and symptoms of acute as well as chronic lithium toxicity have been described below: Acute lithium toxicity Diarrhea Nausea accompanied by vomiting Dizziness[] Cardiovascular side effects are usually mild and manifest as nonspecific ECG changes, such as ST-T flattening and T-wave inversion.[] The most common electrocardiographic finding is T-wave flattening.[]

  • Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis

    Some electrocardiographic (ECG) findings associated with hypokalemia include flattened or inverted T waves, a U wave and ST depression.[] Crash diets with inadequate intake of potassium Chronic stress which increases adrenocortical hormone Chronic diarrhea, mal-absorption syndrome Perspiration and chronic fever[] Renal excretion becomes more robust with chronic potassium dosing [ 3 ].[]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    On the other hand, the course of chronic adrenal insufficiency is more subtle and insidious, with the predomination of symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, weight loss, diarrhea[] If potassium is above 7.0 mmol/L and hyperkalaemic ECG changes are present (eg. peaked T waves wide QRS complex flattened P waves), treat with either of the following: give[] Some of the most commonly experienced symptoms of adrenal insufficiency include: Chronic fatigue Loss of appetite Muscle weakness Weight loss Other signs and symptoms associated[]

  • Digitalis

    Symptoms may include gastrointestinal disturbances and pain, severe headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, irregular pulse, and yellow vision ...[] […] toxicity include the following: Anorexia Weight loss Failure to thrive (in pediatric patients) Nausea Vomiting Abdominal pain Diarrhea Mesenteric ischemia (a rare complication[] Robert Alan Lewis Lewis' Dictionary of Toxicology - 1998 Page 387 1566702232 See also digitalis. digitalis poisoning. digitalism; acute or cumulative chronic poisoning by[]
