62 Possible Causes for Hyperactive Deep Tendon Reflexes, Hypocalcemia

  • Hypocalcemia

    Manifestations include hyperactive deep tendon reflexes, chvostek's sign, muscle and abdominal cramps, and carpopedal spasm.[] Read More parturient paresis In parturient paresis …calcium in the blood (hypocalcemia).[] Manifestations include hyperactive deep tendon reflexes, Chvostek's sign, muscle and abdominal cramps, and carpopedal spasm.[]

  • Hypomagnesemia

    deep tendon reflexes Chvostek's and Trousseau's signs Nystagmus Ataxia Cardiac arrhythmia Diagnostic Test Results-Laboratory Serum magnesium level is less than 1.5 mEq/L.[] Relative decline of iPTH was predominating in predicting symptomatic hypocalcemia.[] deep tendon reflexes Chvostek's and Trousseau's signs Nystagmus Ataxia Cardiac arrhythmia Hypomagnesemia Diagnostic Test Results-Laboratory Serum magnesium level is less[]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    deep tendon reflexes.[] Severe electrolytes imbalance was noted, including hypomagnesemia, hypophosphatemia, and hypocalcemia.[] We report a case of hyperkalemia, with concurrent hypocalcemia and hypomagnesemia resulting in (1) peaking of the T wave, (2) a prominent U wave, and (3) prolongation of the[]

  • Toxic Thyroid Adenoma

    This may eventually trigger hypocalcemia (a condition of abnormally low levels of blood calcium).[] Hypocalcemia is a condition caused by low level of calcium in blood. Thyroid Nodule Prevention The condition cannot be prevented in any way.[] Even when parathyroids are working normally after your surgery, your body may be more prone to a temporary period of hypocalcemia that responds well to oral calcium supplements[]

  • Familial Primary Hypomagnesemia with Normocalciuria and Normocalcemia

    deep tendon reflexes 59 32 frequent (33%) Frequent (79-30%) HP:0006801 11 moderate global developmental delay 59 32 frequent (33%) Frequent (79-30%) HP:0011343 12 microcephaly[] The disorder consists of three distinct forms which are: autosomal recessive primary hypomagnesemia with normocalcuria and hypocalcemia (ARPHN), familial primary hypomagnesemia[] […] tubular acidosis without deafness Autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease Autosomal recessive proximal renal tubular acidosis Bartter syndrome Bartter syndrome with hypocalcemia[]

  • Liver Cirrhosis

    deep tendon reflexes, and asterixis Diagnosis: Based on clinical picture rather than laboratory or imaging results Primary prophylaxis: None Treatment: Mainly consists of[] Hepatic Encephalopathy Overview: Variable abnormalities of neurological and psychiatric function, including insomnia, hypersomnia, irritability, confusion, disorientation, hyperactive[]

  • Electrolytes Abnormal

    deep tendon reflexes, dysrhythmias, mood changes, confusion, reduced motility with anorexia, nausea, constipation and distention.[] Tx Severe, symptomatic hypocalcemia should be corrected with IV calcium.[] Differential Diagnosis Hyponatremia Hypokalemia Hypocalcemia Hypernatremia Hyperkalemia Hypercalcemia Speaking Intelligently Electrolyte disorders are common clinical problems[]

  • Hypermagnesemia

    Signs and symptoms include muscle tremors and weakness, athetoid movements (continuous, slow, involuntary twisting/writhing movements), ataxia, and hyperactive deep tendon[] The results also suggest that the hypocalcemia associated with hypermagnesemia may be due in part to the suppressive effects of hypermagnesemia on parathyroid hormone secretion[] Physical examination revealed 3/5 muscle strength in the right extremities and 4-/5 in the left extremities with diffusely hyporeflexic deep tendon reflexes.[]

  • Hyperparathyroidism

    deep tendon reflexes [1] Personality changes [1] Muscle weakness and atrophy [1] Gout [1] Myalgia [1] Abdominal pain [1] Constipation [1] Peptic ulcers [1] Renal colic [1[] This typically occurs when the 1,25 dihydroxyvitamin D3 levels in the blood are low and there is hypocalcemia.[] […] in osteitis fibrosa cystica breakdown of bone, predominently subperiosteal bone commonly involves the jaw Secondary secondary parathyroid hyperplasia as compensation from hypocalcemia[]

  • Dysequilibrium Syndrome

    The patient had a convulsion after a first haemodialysis, with quadriparesis and hyperactive deep tendon reflexes and bilateral Babinski signs.[] […] by more tha 30%) Children Pre-existing neurological impairment Metabolic acidosis Differential diagnosis Acute hyponatremia Acute hypoglycemia Acute hypercalcemia Acute hypocalcemia[] These are the same disorders to be ruled out in diagnosing uremic encephalopathy: 3 electrolyte imbalance (water intoxication, hypocalcemia, hyponatremia, hypomagnesemia)[]
