  • Cushing Syndrome

    This clinical situation is known as Nelson's syndrome. Cushing's syndrome caused by treatment with corticosteroids is the most common form.[en.wikipedia.org] A 59-year-old man presented with nasal congestion and neck swelling and was noted to have hypokalemia, hypertension, and hyperglycemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a case of a 74-year-old male patient who presented with severe hypokalemia, proximal muscle weakness, peripheral edema, metabolic alkalosis, and worsening hyperglycemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cushing's Disease

    […] disease after transsphenoidal surgery, 4) medical therapy of Cushing's disease, and 5) management of ectopic ACTH syndrome, Nelson's syndrome, and special patient populations[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hyperglycemia-related AEs occurred in 40.0 % of patients with acromegaly treated with pasireotide SC, and 10.0 % discontinued treatment because of hyperglycemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Factitious Cushing's syndrome is extremely rare.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypokalemia

    syndrome, and about 25% of cases of ACTH-dependent Cushing's syndrome.[scielo.br] KEYWORDS: Cushing syndrome; ectopic Cushing syndrome; hypercortisolism; hyperglycemia; hypokalemia; lung cancer; malignancy; weight loss[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These perturbations include osmotic diarrhea, osmotic diuresis, and hyperinsulinemia secondary to hyperglycemia with resultant intracellular to cellular shifts in potassium[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Nelson Syndrome

    Nelson's syndrome Nelson's syndrome is a relatively common complication that occurs in people who have had both of their adrenal glands removed because they were unresponsive[hse.ie] In February 2012 the FDA approved mifepristone in order to control high blood sugar level (hyperglycemia) in adult patients who are not candidates for surgery, or who did[medical-institution.com] […] sometimes known as a 'buffalo hump' purple skin striae easy skin bruising acanthosis nigricans proximal myopathy depression and other mood disorders osteoporosis hypertension hyperglycemia[radiopaedia.org]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Epidemiology/Health Services/Psychosocial Research Abstract OBJECTIVE —Although postchallenge hyperglycemia is a well-established feature of type 2 diabetes, its association[doi.org] Cushing’s syndrome occurs when the body produces too much cortisol —often called the “stress hormone.” Acromegaly occurs when the body produces too much growth hormone.[niddk.nih.gov]

  • Diabetes Mellitus Type 2

    Cushing’s syndrome occurs when the body produces too much cortisol —often called the “stress hormone.” Acromegaly occurs when the body produces too much growth hormone.[niddk.nih.gov] The opposite effect of uncontrolled hyperglycemia on adhesion molecules suggests different functions of VCAM-1 and ICAM-1 in complications of diabetes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Examples: post-pancreatectomy, Cushing’s syndrome, HIV-associated diabetes, cystic-fibrosis related diabetes, certain drugs such as glucocorticoids and genetic syndromes such[hopkinsguides.com]

  • Carcinoma of the Prostate

    Key messages When a patient presents with ectopic Cushing Syndrome but lungs are normal, an atypical localization should be suspected.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients suffering SCC of the prostate presenting with CS usually present symptoms such as hypertension, hyperglycemia, alkalosis or hypokalemia; cushingoid phenotype is less[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] As Cushing Syndrome is a paraneoplastic phenomenon, treatment of the underlying disease may help control hypercortisolism manifestations.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Insulin Resistance

    ’s syndrome and acromegaly sleep problems, especially sleep apnea Although you can’t change risk factors such as family history, age, or ethnicity, you can change lifestyle[niddk.nih.gov] Corticosteroid therapy improved insulin resistance and hyperglycemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] that may contribute to insulin resistance include certain medicines, such as glucocorticoids, some antipsychotics, and some medicines for HIV hormonal disorders, such as Cushing’s[niddk.nih.gov]

  • Hyperthyroidism

    The syndrome may also include facial asymmetry, Cushing syndrome, hyperthyroidism, and acromegaly. [7] A number of disorders of thyroid function have been found to be caused[emedicine.com] BACKGROUND: Incretin hormones (glucagon-like peptide-1 [GLP-1] and gastric inhibitory polypeptide [GIP]) may play a role in the development of glucose intolerance and hyperglycemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] fecal excretion 50 Glucocorticoids Prednisone: 20 to 40 mg orally per day for up to four weeks Hydrocortisone: 100 mg intravenously every eight hours with subsequent taper Hyperglycemia[aafp.org]
