207 Possible Causes for Digitalis Toxicity, Hypertension, Muscle Weakness

  • Acute Renal Failure

    Author information 1 Department of Nephrology and Hypertension, University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein, Campus Kiel, Georges-Köhler-Haus, Fleckenstr. 4, 24105, Kiel, Germany[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Muscle weakness. When your body's fluids and electrolytes — your body's blood chemistry — are out of balance, muscle weakness can result. Permanent kidney damage.[mayoclinic.org] weakness, paralysis and heart rhythm problems fluid in the lungs (pulmonary oedema ) acidic blood (metabolic acidosis) – which can cause nausea, vomiting, drowsiness and[nhs.uk]

  • Conn Syndrome

    hypertension ensues.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Low potassium may cause fatigue, muscle cramps, muscle weakness, numbness, or temporary paralysis.[endocrinediseases.org] Patients may present with headaches, muscle weakness and fatigue.[symptoma.com]

  • Hypercalcemia

    Exact pathophysiology remains unclear but is commonly associated with hypertension, renal failure, sepsis and use of immunosuppressive therapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She had nausea, vomiting, leg pain, polyuria, polydipsia, and muscle weakness. At the time of relapse, the ionized calcium level was 1.99 mmol/L.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A previously well 14-year-old Caucasian boy was admitted to the Hospital for Sick Children, Canada, for hypertension and renal failure following work-up by his family physician[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    Anemia, progressive bone loss, cardiovascular pathologies such as hypertension and heart failure, as well as dyslipidemia are the most important long-term complications of[symptoma.com] weakness.[emedicine.medscape.com] Aetiology Diabetes, hypertension, glomerulonephritis.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Myxedema

    […] to prevalence of the effect of alpha-adrenergic receptors, increased catecholamines, and increased systemic vascular resistance, causing some patients to have diastolic hypertension[emedicine.com] weakness, mechanical obstruction by a large tongue, and obesity-hypoventilation syndrome.[emedicine.com] […] central depression of ventilatory drive with decreased responsiveness to hypoxia and hypercapnia. [9, 10] Other contributing factors to hypoventilation include respiratory muscle[emedicine.com]

  • Hypokalemia

    Two middle-aged Chinese females were admitted to our emergency department for muscular weakness and limb pain, and both have the history of early onset hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Neurological examination showed a lower extremity muscle weakness with three-fifths muscular strength of the quadriceps and tibialis anterior muscle on both sides.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Susceptibility to digitalis toxicity is increased when a patient has hypokalemia.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Acute Amphetamine Intoxication

    Hypertension Hypertension is generally controlled with benzodiazepines; refractory hypertension may require the antihypertensives nitroprusside or phentolamine.[brainprotips.com] Loss of Coordination Loss of coordination, clumsiness, and muscle weakness, slurred or difficult speech can be serious symptoms resulting from neurological and other bodily[amphetamines.com] Toxic concentrations of digitalis can cause nearly every known arrhythmia.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Hyperkalemia

    OBJECTIVE: Recurrent hyperkalemia frequently limits use of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitors (RAASi) in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients with hypertension[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Careful monitoring of electrocardiogram changes and muscle weakness in hyperkalemia is important to determine its functional consequences.[acls.com] Bidirectional tachycardia in a patient with digitalis toxicity. Signs and symptoms Digitalis toxicity produces CNS, visual, GI, and cardiac manifestations.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Hypoglycemia

    On hospital day 8 the patient developed hypertensive emergency and was taken to the operating room for exploratory laparotomy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] weakness Signs of brain fog, including feeling confused and having trouble working or concentrating In severe cases (including when diabetes medications are involved), seizures[draxe.com] Hyperinsulinemia can also result from in utero or perinatal stress (eg, maternal hypertension, prematurity, small for gestational age, hypoxia, Caesarian delivery).
