1,257 Possible Causes for Congestive Heart Failure, Lactic Acidosis

  • Endocrine Dysfunction

    ., exacerbations of congestive heart failure, atrial fibrillation or angina precipitated by hyperthyroidism in older patients with preexisting cardiac disease).[] A case of mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes associated with diabetes mellitus and hypothalamo-pituitary dysfunction . Endocr.[] Hypothalamic growth hormone deficiency and supplementary GH therapy in two patients with mitochondrial myopathy, encephalopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes .[]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    Congestive heart failure (CHF) and cirrhosis with ascites are exceptions that cause progressive sodium retention.[] Mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes (MELAS) are established subgroups of mitochondrial encephalomyopathy. m.3243A G a common point mutation[] Overtreatment can result in fluid retention and possibly congestive heart failure; therefore, monitor serum potassium and sodium levels frequently during fludrocortisone administration[]

  • Beriberi

    This was defined as the presence of signs of congestive heart failure or shock in the absence of fever or other signs of sepsis, hypovolaemia or cardiac abnormalities, with[] acidosis.[] Although, untreated Beriberi can eventually lead to death Commencing thiamine supplementation can cause an improvement in the symptoms If congestive heart failure occurs,[]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 1

    Congestive heart failure, respiratory failure, and/or aspiration pneumonia are the most frequent causes of death, which usually occurs within 1 year [1].[] The patient presented at 9 months of age with severe lactic acidosis and hypoglycaemia.[] heart failure Decreased numbers of nephrons Developmental regression Keratoconjunctivitis sicca Retinopathy Aseptic necrosis Muscle weakness Pyloric stenosis Hypogonadism[]

  • Metformin

    When compared with the general population, diabetics are twice as likely to die from fatal myocardial infarction and congestive heart failure (CHF).[] Experience with 3 cases of metformin-associated lactic acidosis is reported.[] It should not be used by those who use more than two ounces or two drinks of alcohol a day, who have congestive heart failure, or who have significant kidney, liver, or lung[]

  • MELAS Syndrome

    In particular, mitochondrial myocardial disease can be progressive resulting in congestive heart failure and end-stage heart disease.[] Among this group of disorders, the mitochondrial myopathy, encephalopathy, lactic acidosis with stroke-like episodes (MELAS) syndrome is one of the most frequently occurring[] Cardiomyopathy with signs of congestive heart failure (CHF) also may be observed in the physical examination.[]

  • Ethanol

    The patient was admitted with severe metabolic acidosis (both ketoacidosis and lactic acidosis, with serum lactate levels of 22 mM).[] Diabetic ketoacidosis and lactic acidosis aggravated due to ethanol intoxication, thiamine deficiency and citrate.[] In the presence of lactic acidosis in diabetic ketoacidosis, physicians need to consider thiamine deficiency and ingestion of ethanol or other toxins.[]

  • Shock

    This can be the end result of a heart attack or congestive heart failure .[] Accumulating pyruvate is converted to lactate by lactate dehydrogenase and hence lactate accumulates (causing lactic acidosis ).[] The potassium-ATP channels are directly activated by lactic acidosis. NO also activates potassium channels.[]

  • Heat Stroke

    Delaying treatment can have serious consequences, including kidney or liver damage, congestive heart failure or heart arrhythmias, coma or death.[] Seven patients developed acute kidney injury, all eight had lactic acidosis and rhabdomyolysis.[] In heat stroke the patient is shocked, this mechanism is less efficient, and restoration of the circulating volume may lead to worsening lactic acidosis as skeletal muscle[]

  • Thyroid Crisis

    A 50-year-old man with Graves' disease developed rhabdomyolysis, congestive heart failure and hepatic failure during the course of thyroid crisis and then died of acute renal[] We describe a case of thyroid crisis with hypoglycemia, lactic acidosis, multiple organ failure, and disseminated intravascular coagulation--rare but severe complications[] She had congestive heart failure, rapid atrial fibrillation, and disseminated intravascular coagulation on admission.[]
