55 Possible Causes for Dehydration, Shock, Starvation Ketosis

  • Vomiting of Pregnancy

    This results in dehydration and shock when the levels of water in the body reduce, cautions Dr. Andabati. And if nothing is done, the condition can cause death.[] Be sure to watch for signs of dehydration if vomiting develops.[] ketosis with ketonuria, elevated specific gravity and BUN, and a hypochloremic hypokalemic metabolic alkalosis. 1,3,15 It is recommended to replete with thiamine if significant[]

  • Diabetic Ketotic Coma

    She was totally unconscious, shocked, anuric, grossly dehydrated and in status pilepticus but she recovered, and has remained non-diabetic, with diminished adrenal response[] - /- hyperventilation due to cerebral dehydration - /- focal neurological signs due to dehydration or thrombosis Investigation - marked hyperglycaemia.[] Therefore, a patient with starvation ketosis rarely presents with a serum bicarbonate concentration less than 18 mEq/L.[]

  • Acidosis

    We present the case of a patient with new-onset diabetes, severe acidosis, hypothermia, and shock who presented to a Role 1 Battalion Aid Station (BAS) in Afghanistan.[] Treatment You can relieve dehydration-related acidosis by treating the underlying cause of dehydration, Medline Plus reports.[] , alcohol and DKA) Download PDF of GOLDMARK mnemonic Osmolar Gap common differential diagnosis Ketoacids (DKA, AKA, starvation ketosis) Alcohols Sepsis Ischemia Sodium bicarbonate[]

  • Anorexia Nervosa

    The aim of this study was to report a case of cardiogenic shock that occurred during refeeding in a patient with anorexia nervosa (AN).[] […] diagnosis and treatment stages due to the fact that early onset of the disease is rare. a boy aged eight years and four months presented with bradicardia, malnutrition and dehydration[] ) further magnifies the impact of the malnutrition on the brain, owing to it being in a starvation-illness mode.[]

  • Salicylate Poisoning

    Abnormal hemostasis and coagulation Clinical presentations of patients with salicylate toxicity range from minor symptoms to a syndrome initially indistinguishable from septic shock[] Hyperventilation (P less than .01), dehydration (P less than .001), and severe central nervous system manifestations (P less than .001) occurred more frequently in the chronic[] Ketoacidosis may also occur in children who are ill and fasted (ie starvation ketosis).[]

  • Alcoholic Ketoacidosis

    He suffered from ethanol-induced severe ketoacidosis and shock and was resuscitated with epinephrine and sodium bicarbonate.[] Dehydration All patients with severe AKA are dehydrated.[] This would be an excellent indication for the Toxicologic Ultrasound in Shock and Hypotension (TUSH) exam, using bedside sonography to visualize collapsibility of the inferior[]

  • Diabetic Ketoacidosis

    We describe a previously healthy adolescent boy who presented with respiratory distress, hypotensive shock, and a diffuse erythematous rash.[] She had moderated to severe dehydration but no hypotension.[] It is possible that starvation ketosis contributed to the development of the high anion gap metabolic acidosis in our patient.[]

  • Metabolic Acidosis

    To the best of our knowledge this is the first reported case of survival after a pH of 6.5 secondary to hypovolaemic shock.[] We report a case of a 4-day-old neonate presenting with 18% weight loss, hypernatremic dehydration and metabolic acidosis.[] , alcohol and DKA) Download PDF of GOLDMARK mnemonic Osmolar Gap common differential diagnosis Ketoacids (DKA, AKA, starvation ketosis) Alcohols Sepsis Ischemia Sodium bicarbonate[]

  • Diabetic Coma

    Insulin Shock Insulin shock makes it sound like the body is in shock, which isn't true.[] The individual is not usually dehydrated and breathing is normal or shallow.[] Ketosis and ketoacidosis may also be seen with starvation, alcoholism, and with high-fat, low-carbohydrate diets.[]

  • Prerenal Azotemia

    Methods Both serum FENa & FEurea were measured in 40 patients (pts) with acute kidney injury (AKI) complicating circulatory shock during their stay in ICU.[] Additionally, signs of dehydration are commonly observed, such as dry mucous membranes and loss of skin turgor.[] Protein intake should be balanced to minimize nitrogenous waste production while limiting starvation ketosis and subsequent production of ketoacids.[]
