  • Adrenal Cortex Hormone

    Monitor intake and output, serum glucose and electrolyte levels for abnormalities, especially hypokalemia and hypernatremia.[] Hypertnsion, Hypokalemia (low levels of K), hypernatremia and Alkalosis. (Adenoma’s – Over production of Aldosterone).[] 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[]

  • Enterovesical Fistula

    Abstract We report a case of a 59-year-old woman who had severe metabolic acidosis and hypokalemia due to an enterovesical fistula.[] The most frequent cause is represented by diverticulitis of the sigmoid colon and less frequently from Crohn's disease, tumors of the colon and bladder, trauma, radiation[] It usually presents with pneumaturia, fecaluria, urinary tract infections, or irritable bladder symptoms in the setting of either diverticulitis or malignancy.[]
