523 Possible Causes for Hyperglycemia, Pituitary Adenoma

  • Acromegaly

    In more than 98% of cases, acromegaly is due to a GH-secreting pituitary adenoma.[] In addition, we assessed the relation between insulin secretion and pasireotide-induced hyperglycemia.[] Serious AEs were reported in 7 patients with the most common being hyperglycemia (n 2).[]

  • Endocrine Dysfunction

    The patient's presentation favored the preoperative diagnosis of pituitary adenoma or Rathke's cleft cyst.[] Several endocrinopathies, including hypophysitis, thyroid dysfunction, hyperglycemia, and primary adrenal insufficiency, have been associated with the use of these agents.[] Corticosteroids Glucocorticoids may be produced in excess because of an ACTH-producing pituitary adenoma (pituitary Cushing's, or Cushing's disease), or from an adrenal tumour[]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    We present a case of 55 years old female, so far mentally healthy with untreated adrenocortical insufficiency secondary to radiotherapy of pituitary adenoma (prolactinoma)[] […] symptoms of cortisol insufficiency (under-replacement), such as afternoon fatigue, weight loss, or malaise, or Cushing syndrome (over-replacement), such as weight gain, hyperglycemia[] Pituitary adenomas and its treatment (surgical removal or radiation therapy) present the main causes of secondary adrenal insufficiency.[]

  • Gigantism

    Serious AEs were reported in 7 patients with the most common being hyperglycemia (n 2).[] Acromegaly and pituitary gigantism are very rare conditions resulting from excessive secretion of growth hormone (GH), usually by a pituitary adenoma.[] Usually hyperglycemia (overactivity of the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas) is present.[]

  • Hypokalemia

    It is determined that a pituitary adenoma is the cause of these symptoms.[] These perturbations include osmotic diarrhea, osmotic diuresis, and hyperinsulinemia secondary to hyperglycemia with resultant intracellular to cellular shifts in potassium[] Diuretic use and gastrointestinal losses are common causes of hypokalemia, whereas kidney disease, hyperglycemia, and medication use are common causes of hyperkalemia.[]

  • Pheochromocytoma

    However, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed no pituitary adenoma.[] Google Scholar and PubMed were searched using the following key words: "diabetes," "pheochromocytoma," "adrenoreceptors," and "hyperglycemia."[] […] cases; usually younger age of onset (10-20 years vs. 40-60 years), bilateral (70% vs. 10% in sporadic), multicentric, associated with other neoplasms, male gender MEN 1: Pituitary[]

  • Cushing's Disease

    On pituitary MRI with spoiled gradient recalled acquisition in the steady-state and T1-weighted spin echo protocols, a 5mm hypoenhancing region typical for a pituitary adenoma[] Hyperglycemia-related AEs occurred in 40.0 % of patients with acromegaly treated with pasireotide SC, and 10.0 % discontinued treatment because of hyperglycemia.[] Double pituitary adenomas are very rare and present up to 1 % of pituitary adenomas in unselected autopsy series and up to 2 % in large surgical series.[]

  • Hyperthyroidism

    Thyrotropin (TSH)-secreting pituitary adenomas are exceedingly rare at the pediatric age and no cases of co-secretion with other pituitary hormones in these tumors have been[] Incretin hormones (glucagon-like peptide-1 [GLP-1] and gastric inhibitory polypeptide [GIP]) may play a role in the development of glucose intolerance and hyperglycemia in[] […] fecal excretion 50 Glucocorticoids Prednisone: 20 to 40 mg orally per day for up to four weeks Hydrocortisone: 100 mg intravenously every eight hours with subsequent taper Hyperglycemia[]

  • Corticotropin

    GH-producing pituitary adenomas frequently co-produce other certain anterior pituitary hormones, such as prolactin (PRL).[] A 26-year-old woman with dehydration, severe hyperglycemia, and hypokalemia was seen in consultation.[] Alternative Significant - Monitor Closely All Interactions Sort By: Adverse Effects Frequency Not Defined Common Edema, hypertension Psychotic disorder Disorder of skin Hyperglycemia[]

  • Diabetic Ketotic Coma

    adenoma removed.[] Diabetic Ketoacidosis and Non-Ketotic Hyperosmolar Coma Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) – associated with type 1 diabetes Clinical Presentation – hyperglycemia ( 250 mg/dl), acidosis[] hyperglycemia.[]
