92 Possible Causes for Delayed Wound Healing, Hypokalemia

  • Iatrogenic Cushing's Disease

    In addition, the systemic side effects of excess cortisol can delay wound healing and result in immune suppression [ 1 , 2 , 6 ].[academic.oup.com] 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] wound healing, excessive panting, sodium retention (which can cause high blood pressure or exacerbate congestive heart failure, and occasionally diabetes.[hallettvet.com]

  • Adrenal Cortex Hormone

    Monitor intake and output, serum glucose and electrolyte levels for abnormalities, especially hypokalemia and hypernatremia.[journals.lww.com] – oral corticosteroids can delay wound healing They should also be used with caution in people with a health condition that could be made worse by taking oral corticosteroids[nhsinform.scot] Hypertnsion, Hypokalemia (low levels of K), hypernatremia and Alkalosis.

    The presenting complaints of the patients include lack of energy, delayed wound healing, visual blurring and fungal infections such as pruritis vulvae or balanitis.[symptoma.com] Rarely, DKA patients may present with significant hypokalemia.[care.diabetesjournals.org] To prevent hypokalemia, potassium replacement is initiated after serum levels fall below the upper level of normal for the particular laboratory (5.0–5.2 mEq/l).[care.diabetesjournals.org]

  • Cushing's Disease

    The course of the disease was fatal, the patient died due to severe hypokalemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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] Tw o also demonstrated personality changes, hypertension and hypokalemia, the last of these being rarely reported in patients with Cushing's disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Malabsorption Syndrome

    One or more boratory alterations (increased erythrocyte sedimentaion rate, anemia, hypokalemia, and low serum albumin vel) were found in 62% of patients with organic diarrhea[doi.org] ., methotrexate , sulfonamides , phenytoin ) Green leaves Other deficiencies Protein: edema , cachexia Iron deficiency anemia or microcytic anemia Electrolytes: hypokalemia[amboss.com]

  • Fludrocortisone

    wound healing is possible Patients receiving corticosteroids should avoid chickenpox or measles-infected persons if unvaccinated Latent tuberculosis may be reactivated (patients[reference.medscape.com] In 3 patients, fludrocortisone treatment was complicated by hypokalemia, and in 1 patient by hypertension, which necessitated a dose reduction or brief cessation of therapy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Metabolic: hypokalemia. Skin: bruising, diaphoresis, urticaria, allergic rash. Effects on lab test results • May increase serum sodium level.[glowm.com]

  • Poorly Controlled Diabetes Mellitus

    ., obesity, hypertension, hyperglycemia, edema, hypokalemia, fatigue, mood disorders, and insomnia) are common but nonspecific; others (e.g. easy bruising, purple striae,[blogs.nejm.org] wound healing.[decisionsindentistry.com] Gross derangements of volume and electrolytes (e.g. hypokalemia, hypernatremia) should be corrected.[spectrum.diabetesjournals.org]

  • Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Type 4

    Prominent eye folds [ more ] 0000286 Gastrointestinal infarctions 0005244 Global developmental delay 0001263 Hypertelorism Wide-set eyes Widely spaced eyes [ more ] 0000316 Hypokalemia[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] The oral manifestations include increased mucosal fragility, delayed wound healing, early onset generalized periodontitis and temporomandibular joint hypermobility.[jdrr.org] wound healing Kyphoscoliotic EDS Kyphoscoliotic EDS (kEDS) is rare.[nhs.uk]

  • Hydrocortisone

    Abstract Although modest hypokalemia is frequently observed in asthmatic patients being treated with bronchodilators, profound hypokalemia and metabolic alkalosis are rarely[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] wound healing is possible Patients receiving corticosteroids should avoid chickenpox or measles-infected persons if unvaccinated Latent tuberculosis may be reactivated (patients[reference.medscape.com] Skin: delayed wound healing, acne, various skin eruptions, easy bruising, hirsutism.[glowm.com]

  • Liver Failure

    Also, severe electrolye abnormalities (hyponatremia, hypophosphatemia, hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia, also metabolic acidosis). Patients often need CVVH. 5.[errolozdalga.com] Previous studies have found that binge drinking delays wound healing, increases blood loss and makes us more prone to pneumonia and other infections.[dailymail.co.uk] Screen for hypoxia, hypoglycemia, anemia, hypokalemia, metabolic alkalosis, and other potential metabolic or endocrine factors; correct as indicated.[aafp.org]
