71 Possible Causes for Hyperkalemia, Impaired Judgement, Sweating

  • Hypokalemia

    Abstract Hypokalemia and hyperkalemia are common electrolyte disorders caused by changes in potassium intake, altered excretion, or transcellular shifts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Causes Hypokalemia always occurs as a result of excessive loss of potassium through the urine, sweat or stool.[rarediseases.org] Hyperkalemia occurred in 25,461 (7%) individuals, with 35.7% recurrence. Moderate/severe hyperkalemia occurred in 9059 (2.5%) with 28% recurrence.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heat Stroke

    Laboratory studies with dogs have demonstrated heat stroke-induced sinoatrial node dysfunction in the setting of hyperkalemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The body cools itself by sweating and allowing that sweat to evaporate.[medicinenet.com] The associated hyperkalemia and metabolic acidosis may lead to an acute renal, cardiac, and hemostatic failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heat Exhaustion

    , and low air humidity which can allow sweat to evaporate.[symptoma.com] The body cools itself by sweating and allowing that sweat to evaporate.[medicinenet.com] The natural cooling system of the body involves sweating but this can only be when there is enough fluid in the body for sweat production, circulation of air over the skin[symptoma.com]

  • Hypoglycemia

    Spurious hypoglycemia, hyperkalemia and hypoxemia in chronic hemolytic anemia. Isr J Med Sci. 1990 Nov. 26(11):606-10. [Medline]. Jokinen CH, Swaim WR, Nuttall FQ.[emedicine.com] Severe hypoglycemia eventually lead to glucose deprivation of the central nervous system resulting in hunger; sweating; paresthesia; impaired mental function; seizures; coma[icd9data.com] A 66-year-old woman presented to an urgent care clinic for 2 to 3 weeks of general malaise, nausea/vomiting, night sweats, and dyspnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acidosis

    She responded to thiazide diuretics and her BP is well controlled, and acidosis and hyperkalemia are corrected.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms may include: Confusion Anxiety Easy fatigue Lethargy Shortness of breath Sleepiness Tremors (shaking) Warm and flushed skin Sweating The health care provider will[nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Type IV renal tubular acidosis (RTA) is a syndrome of tubular dysfunction manifested clinically by persisting hyperkalemia and metabolic acidosis that occurs usually[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Electrolytes Abnormal

    Hyperkalemia Pφ Severe hyperkalemia is a life-threatening emergency, requiring immediate treatment.[musculoskeletalkey.com] The fact that the sweat glands do not retain salt effectively in hot weather, during salt restriction or when DCA is administered, points to a disturbance in the sweat glands[pediatrics.aappublications.org] Hyperkalemia Several concepts in hypokalemia are relevant to hyperkalemia.[the-hospitalist.org]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    Manage the sequelae of ACRF (hyperkalemia, uremia and volume overload can be life-threatening).[clinicaladvisor.com] Exercise Exercise will help your child sweat, which will get rid of excess fluid and flush out toxins through the skin.[kidshealth.org] Examples of prerenal causes of kidney failure are: Hypovolemia (low blood volume) due to blood loss Dehydration from loss of body fluid (for example, vomiting, diarrhea, sweating[medicinenet.com]

  • Digitalis Toxicity

    Abstract Cardiac glycoside toxicity is frequently associated with hyperkalemia and dysrhythmias in patients with renal insufficiency.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A person suffering from digoxin toxicity also experiences difficulty breathing, increased sweating and decreased consciousness.[livestrong.com] […] sickness, vomiting, purging, giddiness, confused vision, objects appearing green or yellow; increased secretion of urine, slow pulses, even as low as 35 in a minute, cold sweats[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Accidental Hypothermia

    Electrolyte abnormalities such as hyperkalemia and hypocalcemia that may worsen when patients are rewarmed contribute to the risk of arrhythmias.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Because cold air contains little water and readily evaporates perspiration; and because physical exertion produces sweating, even in extreme cold; heat loss through evaporation[science.jrank.org] […] the remarkable salvageability of patients suffering prolonged cardiac arrest caused by accidental hypothermia, particularly in the absence of asphyxia, trauma, or severe hyperkalemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dehydration

    Hyperchloremia was the commonest electrolyte disorder (53.8%), followed by hyperkalemia (26.9%) and hypernatremia (17.3%).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 37-year-old Caucasian male died of dehydration and heat exposure following a sweat lodge ceremony in outback Australia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Newborn Burns, Thermal Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia Diabetes Insipidus Diabetic Ketoacidosis Diarrhea Eating Disorder: Anorexia Enteroviral Infections Gastroenteritis Hyperkalemia[physio-pedia.com]
