121 Possible Causes for Hirsutism, Hypertension, Variable Hypoglycemia

  • Insulin Resistance

    Study confirms high rate of uncontrolled hypertension; Uncontrolled hypertension common in workforce. Preventive Cardiology Clinic. 2002 June:6,7. John JH et al.[] Armen, Simulation and qualitative analysis of glucose variability, mean glucose, and hypoglycemia after subcutaneous insulin therapy for stress hyperglycemia, Theoretical[] Case 1 presented with premature adrenarche aged 7 years, then by age 12 years had hirsutism, acne, acanthosis nigricans, and asymptomatic diabetes.[]

  • Islet Cell Tumor

    A 22-year-old woman presented with lump in the left hypochondrium, refractory high-protein ascites and evidence of left-sided portal hypertension.[] PNETs are functional or non-functional tumors and represent a heterogeneous group of neoplasms with extremely variable clinical behavior.[] A 41-year-old woman presented with hirsutism, a pelvic mass, and Cushing's syndrome.[]

  • Myxedema

    […] to prevalence of the effect of alpha-adrenergic receptors, increased catecholamines, and increased systemic vascular resistance, causing some patients to have diastolic hypertension[] Serum potassium levels are extremely variable. Blood glucose levels are generally in the normal range, but severe hypoglycemia can occur.[]

  • Pregnancy-related

    These increased velocities are normally caused by cerebral vasospasm and subsequent hypoperfusion in pregnancy-related hypertensive encephalopathy.[] (normal to low) variable (normal to low) low variable (normal to low) Coagulation studies variable abnormal normal normal Hypoglycemia no yes no no Other none some association[] […] group-31, chronic hypertension group-32 and miscarriage group-19) and control group-54.[]

  • Insulin-Resistance Syndrome Type B

    Dyslipidaemia was identified in 30% and hypertension in 32%.[] Hyperglycemia appears to be the major variable shared among these different clinical forms [ 30 ].[] […] rapidly progressive nonketotic and severely insulin-resistant diabetes, along with acanthosis nigricans (the typical skin lesion associated with insulin resistance) and hirsutism[]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 6

    Our patient differs from these patients as cirrhosis and portal hypertension were already present at the age of 3 years.[] Individuals with GSD VI typically exhibit hepatomegaly, growth retardation, and variable but mild episodes of fasting hypoglycemia and hyperketosis during early childhood.[] Affected female patients will have polycystic ovaries but none of the other symptoms of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) such as hirsutism.[]

  • Diabetes Mellitus Type 2

    OBJECTIVE: To determine types and frequency of side effects of antihypertensive drugs in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) type 2 and hypertension.[] The choice of glycemic target also depends on consideration of other variables, such as risk for hypoglycemia, weight gain, and other drug-related adverse effects, as well[] Genetic susceptibility Family history of diabetes mellitus Previous gestational diabetes Dyslipidemia Infertility, hirsutism Obesity Smoking Environmental factors Table 1:[]

  • Empty Sella Syndrome

    The combination of the empty sella syndrome (ESS) and benign intracranial hypertension (BIH) is illustrated by two case histories.[] Moderate hyperprolactinemia, as the result of stalk compression, has been variably reported in approx 5% of patients (146).[] (a) inappropriate cortisol secretion of pituitary origin; this alteration is less pronounced in comparison with other patients affected by Cushing's disease; (b) marked hirsutism[]

  • Nephroblastoma

    An infant with severe hypertension who had a nephroblastoma which was secreting active renin is described.[] Variable complications of BWS include organomegaly, hypoglycemia, hemihypertrophy, genitourinary abnormalities, and, in about 5% of children embrional tumors.[] […] palpebral fissures, depressed nasal bridge, anteverted nares, low-set and posteriorly rotated ears, glabellar nevus flammeus, low anterior hairline), microcephaly, forehead hirsutism[]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Prevalence of hypertension and DM were 55.9% and 23.3% respectively.[] Associated Complications: CNS : retinopathy, peripheral neuropathies, and autonomic neuropathy (decreased heart rate variability, orthostatic hypotension, gastroparesis,[] A 16-year-old female with CHI due to a dominant ABCC8 gene mutation was switched from diazoxide therapy to sirolimus, due to the hypertrichosis side effect of diazoxide.[]
