405 Possible Causes for Glucose Tolerance Test Abnormal, Vacuolation of Granular Layer

  • Glucagonoma

    Laboratory tests: presence of mild normocytic and normochromic anemia, abnormal glucose tolerance test, reduced albumin and total protein levels, and amino acids quite diminished[scielo.br] A skin biopsy performed on a peritibial lesion showed a spongiotic epidermis with vacuolization of the granular layer and presence of necrotic keratinocytes in the horny layer[jmedicalcasereports.biomedcentral.com]

  • Insulin Resistance

    In addition, an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) can be used to detect insulin resistance and is more sensitive for detecting milder/earlier disease.[emedicinehealth.com] An oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) may be normal or mildly abnormal in simple insulin resistance.[en.wikipedia.org] However, an insulin level above the upper quartile in the fasting state in someone without diabetes is considered abnormal.[emedicinehealth.com]

  • Obesity

    Upon resolution of the joint symptoms, the aspirin was discontinued, and a repeat glucose tolerance test was grossly abnormal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fasting and postchallenge glucose concentrations were nearly normal, despite the discontinuation of insulin and treatment with aspirin alone.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

    Once the diagnosis was made, she was screened for lipid abnormalities and for glucose intolerance.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] tolerance test, with referral to a specialist obstetric diabetic service if abnormalities are detected.[patient.info] Her LDL was 150, HDL 35; oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) was normal. A pregnancy test was negative, and she was started on OCPs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Morbid Obesity

    Morbid obesity is associated with liver pathology, most commonly non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) leading to cirrhosis. However, the morbid obesity impedes qualification for organ transplantation. We present a case report of a 56-year-old woman who underwent bariatric procedure followed by liver transplantation[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pancreatic Abscess

    Risk assessment of acute pancreatitis (AP) depends upon clinical indices (eg, Ranson, Imrie, or Apache I/II Scores), the presence of extrapancreatic complications, an elevated C-reactive protein or hematocrit, an elevated procalcitonin, and the finding of pancreatic necrosis on CT scanning. The prognosis may be worse[…][emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Pancreatic Atrophy

    BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Many patients with autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) have an association with diabetes mellitus. It has not been clarified whether steroid therapy for AIP improves or worsens the condition of diabetes mellitus. The aim of this study was thus to investigate the relationship between pancreatic[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma

    Pancreatic adenocarcinoma is a highly aggressive malignancy that usually presents at a late stage. Common sites of metastasis include the liver, lung and adjacent lymph nodes. Cervical lymph node involvement has been reported previously but there are no documented cases of submandibular lymph node metastasis in[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Malignant Neoplasm of Pancreas

    Pancreatic cancer is a type of cancer that starts in the pancreas. (Cancer starts when cells in the body begin to grow out of control. To learn more about how cancers start and spread, see What Is Cancer? ) Pancreatic adenocarcinoma is the most common type of pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic neuroendocrine[…][cancer.org]
