147 Possible Causes for Cushing's Disease, Hypernatremia, Hypokalemia

  • ACTH-Secreting Pituitary Adenoma

    Depressivity Depression 0000716 Diabetes mellitus 0000819 Fatigue Tired Tiredness [ more ] 0012378 Generalized hirsutism Excessive hairiness over body 0002230 Hypertension 0000822 Hypokalemia[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] Abstract An 18-month old infant with Cushing's disease due to an ACTH producing pituitary tumor is presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] hyperparathyroidism上皮小体機能亢進[症] hyperplasia過形成、増殖、増生、肥厚 hyperuricemia高尿酸血[症] hypocalcemia低カルシウム血[症] hypoglycemia低血糖[症] hypoglycemic attack低血糖発作 hypoglycemic coma低血糖[性]昏睡 hypokalemia[tokyo-med.ac.jp]

  • Adrenocortical Carcinoma

    CASE PRESENTATION: A 65-year-old seemingly well male patient was referred to our clinic under the suspicion of hyperaldosteronism due to hypertension combined with hypokalemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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] […] beta-estradiol (serum, only in men and postmenopausal women) Mineralocorticoid excess potassium (serum) aldosterone/renin ratio (only in patients with arterial hypertension and/or hypokalemia[ensat.org]

  • Cushing's Disease

    The course of the disease was fatal, the patient died due to severe hypokalemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] If Cushing's disease remains untreated it may be fatal.[symptoma.com] Ectopic ACTH secretion was initially suspected on the basis of very high cortisoluria and ACTH concentrations, severe hypokalemia, a lung hypermetabolic lesion and a normal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    The presence of thyrotoxicosis and hypokalemia does not always indicate a diagnosis of TPP.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Recent reports have emphasized the occurrence of a myopathy in chronic alcoholism associated with hypokalemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Laboratory data revealed hypokalemia (2.2 mmol/L), elevated creatine kinase (7282 U/L), metabolic alkalosis and reduced urine potassium, albumin, and total protein.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Iatrogenic Cushing's Disease

    In addition to the CS development, biochemical results of the patient showed low cortisol, ACTH, testosterone, DHEAS (Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate) levels, and hypokalemia[mrmjournal.biomedcentral.com] Iatrogenic Cushing's disease (iatrogenic Cushing's syndrome) is the most common cause of cushingoid symptoms.[symptoma.com] 8mg dexamethasone test (pituitary tumors more likely to suppress cortisol 50%), CRH stimulation (pituitary tumors more likely to stimulate cortisol post CRH), presence of hypokalemia[hopkinsguides.com]

  • Adrenal Cortex Hormone

    Monitor intake and output, serum glucose and electrolyte levels for abnormalities, especially hypokalemia and hypernatremia.[journals.lww.com] Hypertnsion, Hypokalemia (low levels of K), hypernatremia and Alkalosis. (Adenoma’s – Over production of Aldosterone).[biochemden.com] Hyperaldosteronism Hyperaldosteronism is a condition where too much aldosterone is produced by the adrenal glands, which can lead to a high blood pressure and loss of potassium (hypokalemia[empoweryourhealth.org]

  • Conn Syndrome

    Hypernatremia, hypervolemia and hypokalemia are common.[symptoma.com] […] a cause of primary hyperaldosteronism and is the result of an aldosterone producing adenoma (APA) aldosterone secretion,supressed renin activity, hypernatremia, HTN hypokalemia[quizlet.com] disease Large nonfunctioning adrenal tumors ([slideshare.net]

  • Hyperaldosteronism

    […] pressure natriuresis (other mechanisms may be responsible, although how these operate remains unclear) compensatory diuresis “escape” from edema and formation and frank hypernatremia[amboss.com] CASE PRESENTATION: A 65-year-old seemingly well male patient was referred to our clinic under the suspicion of hyperaldosteronism due to hypertension combined with hypokalemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cushing's disease may also present with hypertension and hypokalaemia but both the aldosterone and renin levels are low.[patient.info]

  • Diabetic Ketotic Coma

    […] also eliminates ketone bodies (2) insulin – turn off gluconeogenesis/glycogenolysis [K ] must be carefully monitored, since insulin causes K to enter cells – hyperkalemia Þ hypokalemia[d3jonline.tripod.com] Disease, hypercalcemia, and diabetes mellitus.[books.google.it] The major causes of death are circulatory collapse, hypokalemia, infection, and cerebral edema.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Bicarbonate

    Both agents are equally effective in reducing the incidence of CIN, but the citrate would possibly be a safer option for patients at risk of hypokalemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We should keep in mind that acute hypernatremia and CPM can be associated with intravenous sodium bicarbonate therapy, and that CPM due to acute hypernatremia may be effectively[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Bicarbonate elevations may be seen with severe vomiting, chronic lung-related problems, such as emphysema, and some hormonal disorders such as Cushings disease .[labtestsonline.org.au]
