568 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Wasting Syndrome

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    The same is true for individuals who have low muscle mass for other reasons, such as malnutrition, cachexia, or amputation.[] Uremia Uremia (urine constituents in blood) is a clinical syndrome caused by progressive accumulation of nitrogen waste products among patients with kidney failure who with[] […] products or uremic poisons), and restless legs syndrome; chest pain due to pericarditis (inflammation around the heart); bleeding (due to poor blood clotting); bone pain[]

Kaposi's sarcoma.[]

  • Churg-Strauss Syndrome

    Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is elevated. C-reactive protein (CRP) levels are also elevated.[] If Churg-Strauss syndrome affects your kidneys, you may develop glomerulonephritis.[] Laboratory Findings Typical laboratory findings in CSS include a normochromic normocytic anemia, leukocytosis, and an acute-phase response with elevated erythrocyte sedimentation[]

  • Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma

    Osphyalgia Weight loss Cachexia or malnutrition Jaundice Anorexia Episodes of pancreatitis Nausea Emesis The evolution of imaging modality technology has positively affected[] […] feature of visceral cancer, and his confidence in the utility of this connection led him to say, "So great, in my opinion, is the semiotic value of phlegmasia in the cancerous cachexia[] It can also result in: diarrhea cramping bloating gas Unintended weight loss Tumor-induced weight loss (cancer cachexia) is a common symptom of pancreatic cancer.[]

  • Pulmonary Cavitary Tuberculosis

    A normocytic anemia, leukocytosis, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, positive rheumatoid factor and ANCA (specifically PR3-ANCA) are often shown on serology.[] Physical exam should include evaluation for lymphadenopathy, cachexia, rash, clubbing, and other symptoms pertinent to the suspected etiology. Malignancy.[] The common clinical syndrome is wasting with localizing signs dependent on the organs involved. A common lesion in horses is osteomyelitis of a cervical vertebra.[]

  • Gastric Adenocarcinoma

    A slight improvement was seen in the skin condition but died of cancer cachexia 3 months later.[] […] in the stomach from esophageal varices or at the anastomosis after surgery Intrahepatic jaundice caused by hepatomegaly Extrahepatic jaundice Inanition from starvation or cachexia[]

  • Whipple Disease

    Laboratory tests may provide several nonspecific findings that in combination can be suggestive of diagnoses such as: hypoalbuminemia, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate[] […] accompanied by colicky abdominal pain; along with concomitant anorexia these lead to the full picture of a malabsorption syndrome with severe weight loss, weakness and general cachexia[] Laboratory tests often show an elevation in C-reactive protein (CRP), in the erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), and in the white blood cell and platelet count.[]

  • Chronic Bronchitis
