707 Possible Causes for Dyspnea at Rest, Some Patients Develop Diabetes Mellitus as Adolescents

  • Cystic Fibrosis

    Individuals with cystic fibrosis may be at risk for developing cystic fibrosis-related diabetes mellitus (CFRD).[rarediseases.org] The patient was admitted to our department with fever, cough, and dyspnea at rest unresponsive to antibiotics CONCLUSIONS: Late diagnosis of cystic fibrosis in uncommon.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CFRD may occur in some adolescents with cystic fibrosis, although the prevalence increases during adulthood, as the longer patients live with cystic fibrosis, the more likely[rarediseases.org]

  • Metabolic Syndrome

    Hyperinsulinemia leads to development of widespread acanthosis nigricans, followed by onset of diabetes mellitus during adolescence 7, 8.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , or claudication (symptoms of possible complications) may warrant additional studies, including the following: Electrocardiography (rest/stress ECG) Ultrasonography (vascular[emedicine.medscape.com] Some patients develop extreme hypertriglyceridemia especially after the onset of insulin-resistant diabetes mellitus and are prone to recurrent attacks of acute pancreatitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Panic Attacks

    The author gives an account of the analysis of a young woman suffering from severe panic attacks. He describes the initial problems of the setting and how they are progressively overcome, the emergence of highly structured psychotic nuclei and the gradual approach to the patient's splits. Whereas the panic[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Asthma

    Noninvasive ventilation mainly works by improving alveolar ventilation, resting fatigued ventilatory muscles, relieving dyspnea, and improving gas exchange, while it avoids[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Table 2 Clinical and functional assessment of severe asthma exacerbations Variable Severe exacerbation Imminent respiratory arrest Symptoms Dyspnea At rest Speech Single words[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Obesity

    This is a single case of a 65-year-old American woman who presented with substantial weight gain and insulin resistance (IR) post-Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery. Before RYGB, she had reached 340 lbs (155 kg) and a body mass index (BMI) of 56.6 kg/m2 The surgery resulted in a 70 lbs (32 kg) weight loss,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    The diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) should be suspected in patients with risk factors (primarily a history of smoking) who report dyspnea at rest[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Long-acting bronchodilators have recently been shown to reduce hyperinflation during both rest and exercise in moderate to severe COPD.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The corollary of this is that any intervention that reduces end-expiratory lung volume will improve effort–displacement ratios and alleviate dyspnea.[doi.org]

  • Heart Failure

    These include, among others: Dyspnea ( exertional-, dyspnea at rest, orthopnea, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea); Fatigue, inadequate exhaustion after stress, weakness, lethargy[flexikon.doccheck.com]

  • Psychogenic Hyperventilation

    Normal tidal volumes range from 35-45% of vital capacity at rest.[unp.me] The elastic recoil of the chest wall resists hyperinflation of the lungs beyond that level, and inspiratory volumes beyond this level are perceived as effort or dyspnea.[unp.me]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Initially dyspnea occurs only at exertion. Later on orthopnea and paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea also develop. Later on dyspnea occurs even at rest.[symptoma.com] When congestive heart failure worsens, fluid backs up into the lungs and interferes with oxygen getting into the blood, causing dyspnea at rest and at night (orthopnea).[emedicinehealth.com] The person will have dyspnea (shortness of breath) on exertion and in severe cases, dyspnea at rest. Increasing breathlessness on lying flat, called orthopnea, occurs.[en.wikipedia.org]
