41 Possible Causes for Hyperactive Deep Tendon Reflexes, Hypokalemia

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    Here, we present a case of a heart donor with severe electrolyte imbalance, specifically severe hypokalemia, and severe hypernatremia.[] deep tendon reflexes.[] […] hypomagnesemia t widened hypercalcemia t tall hyperkalemia hypomagnesemia t inverted hypokalemia shallow, flat u prominent hypokalemia[]

  • Hypomagnesemia

    Hypokalemia events were related to malnutrition (odds ratio, 2.79; 95% confidence interval, 1.09-7.14; P .045).[] 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.[] deep tendon reflexes Chvostek's and Trousseau's signs Nystagmus Ataxia Cardiac arrhythmia Hypomagnesemia Diagnostic Test Results-Laboratory Serum magnesium level is less[]

  • Toxic Thyroid Adenoma

    Physical examination showed a left anterior neck mass and laboratory tests revealed hypokalemia during his paralysis, and thyrotoxicosis.[] […] hyperparathyroidism上皮小体機能亢進[症] hyperplasia過形成、増殖、増生、肥厚 hyperuricemia高尿酸血[症] hypocalcemia低カルシウム血[症] hypoglycemia低血糖[症] hypoglycemic attack低血糖発作 hypoglycemic coma低血糖[性]昏睡 hypokalemia[]

  • Electrolytes Abnormal

    Hyperkalemia Several concepts in hypokalemia are relevant to hyperkalemia.[] deep tendon reflexes, dysrhythmias, mood changes, confusion, reduced motility with anorexia, nausea, constipation and distention.[] […] moderate hypokalemia.[]

  • Thyrotoxic Periodic Paralysis

    Abstract We report the rare case of a 43-year-old African-American man with thyrotoxic periodic paralysis associated with hypokalemia and hypophosphatemia.[] tendon reflexes Usually absent or depressed Usually absent or depressed Absent or depressed Normal and often hyperactive Severe respiratory muscle weakness Very rare Rare[] The presentation is characterized by abrupt-onset hypokalemia and profound proximal muscular weakness, and commonly occurs after carbohydrate loading or exercise.[]

  • Hypocalcemia

    The patient improved with cessation of drugs and appropriate management of hypocalcemia and hypokalemia with calcium, vitamin D, magnesium, and potassium replacement.[] Manifestations include hyperactive deep tendon reflexes, chvostek's sign, muscle and abdominal cramps, and carpopedal spasm.[] It must be remembered that a prolonged QT interval can be associated with other conditions, such as hypokalemia (broad T and U waves), hypoglycemia, diabetic acidosis, alkalosis[]

  • Low Chloride

    The chloride imbalance resulted in severe alkalosis and hypochloremia leading to secondary hypokalemia, hyponatremia, and azotemia.[] deep tendon reflexes - Tetany - Slow, shallow respirations - Seizures - Dysrhythmias - Coma - S/s of acid-base imbalances: hyponatremia, hypokalemia & metabolic alkalosis[] , or abuse of licorice or laxatives as the etiology of hypokalemia.[]

  • Paraparesis

    The condition needs to be considered in the differential diagnosis of neuromuscular weakness in the context of hypokalemia by the treating physicians.[] deep-tendon reflexes in the lower limbs.[] We present a case of TPP in a 19-year male with rapidly progressive paraparesis & hypokalemia.[]

  • Dysequilibrium Syndrome

    […] disease, 023406, *, 先天性代謝異常, センテンセイタイシャイジョウ, inborn errors of metabolism, 054464, 不整脈, フセイミャク, arrhythmia, 012266, 合併症, ガッペイショウ, complication, 054094, 低カリウム血症, テイカリウムケッショウ, hypokalemia[] The patient had a convulsion after a first haemodialysis, with quadriparesis and hyperactive deep tendon reflexes and bilateral Babinski signs.[]

  • Acid-Base Imbalance

    Explain why hypokalemia can lead to metabolic alkalosis. In hypokalemia, the kidneys retain more potassiums and excrete more hydrogen ions, which results in alkalosis.[] The signs and symptoms are numbness, tingling of fingers, toes, and circumoral region, positive Trousseau’s sign and Chvostek’s sign, seizures, hyperactive deep tendon reflexes[] This condition is usually related to an electrolyte imbalance which may present as hypokalemia or hypocalcemia. Treatment is directed at the cause.[]
