896 Possible Causes for Hyperkalemia, Potassium Increased, Vomiting

  • Acidosis

    Some small effects occur on calcium and potassium levels. Acidosis decreases binding of calcium to albumin and tends to increase serum ionized calcium levels.[en.wikipedia.org] Vomiting causes metabolic alkalosis because a lot of stomach acid is lost when someone vomits, and this leads to the reduction of acidity within the body.[study.com] She responded to thiazide diuretics and her BP is well controlled, and acidosis and hyperkalemia are corrected.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Kidney Failure

    Because of increasing potassium levels acute hemodialysis was started within 24 h after admission.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] and vomiting, abdominal pain pain 6.6 WBCs, protein 30 Increased cortical echogenicity, no hydronephrosis "Synthetic marijuana" 8 New York 33 Nausea and vomiting 3.3 Not[cdc.gov] Her hyperkalemia and kidney failure resolved after the surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    […] levels Hyperparathyroidism Increased risk of infections Liver damage or failure Malnutrition Miscarriages and infertility Seizures Swelling ( edema ) Weakening of the bones[ufhealth.org] Nausea, loss of appetite, and vomiting. Urea in the gastric juices may cause upset stomach. This can lead to malnutrition and weight loss.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Manage the sequelae of ACRF (hyperkalemia, uremia and volume overload can be life-threatening).[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Addison's Disease

    Source:MedicineNet Hyperkalemia - Hyperkalemia is too much potassium in the blood. It can be caused by a variety of factors.[web.archive.org] On review of history, the cause of vomiting and weight loss was questioned and combined with subsequent biochemical testing a diagnosis of Addison's disease was made.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Classically, patients affected with Addison's disease develop weakness, anorexia, electrolyte imbalances: decreased sodium and chloride with increased serum potassium resulting[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Addisonian Crisis

    - mineral corticosteroid addisons too little steroids excretes sodium and water and holds on to potassium so increase potassium hyponatremia (losing sodium), hypotension ([allnurses.com] If unable to retain medication due to vomiting, notify the health care provider.[endocrinesurgery.ucla.edu] Aldosterone is the first-line defense against hyperkalemia.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Digitalis Toxicity

    This effect was well correlated with an increase of serum potassium concentration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Nausea and vomiting, sometimes with abdominal pain and increased salivation, usually appear 1 to 2 days later.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Abstract Cardiac glycoside toxicity is frequently associated with hyperkalemia and dysrhythmias in patients with renal insufficiency.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiac Glycoside Poisoning

    Cardiac glycosides, including digoxin, inhibit the sodium-potassium-ATPase, resulting in increased intracellular sodium and increased extracellular potassium.[clinicaladvisor.com] CASE DETAILS: A 55-year-old woman presented to the emergency department with nausea, vomiting and generalized weakness eight hours after drinking "comfrey" tea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In acute toxicity, the following may be present: GI symptoms - Usually evolve within minutes to hours, are nonspecific, and include nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain Neurologic[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Metabolic Acidosis

    Decreased potassium level and increase bicarb level The answer is D: Decreased potassium level and increase bicarb level 4.[registerednursern.com] Laboratory examinations reveal the presence of significant metabolic alkalosis despite the severe vomiting of the patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She responded to thiazide diuretics and her BP is well controlled, and acidosis and hyperkalemia are corrected.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heat Stroke

    IV fluids: These may be given to increase your fluid volume to treat dehydration. Medicines: Anticonvulsant medicine: This medicine is given to control seizures.[drugs.com] This may be a challenge if the person begins to suffer from nausea and vomiting.[medicinenet.com] Laboratory studies with dogs have demonstrated heat stroke-induced sinoatrial node dysfunction in the setting of hyperkalemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Primary Hyperparathyroidism

    Recently, a couple of mutations in the KCNJ5 potassium channel gene that are located in the selectivity filter 24 and were shown to lead to increased cell membrane permeability[hyper.ahajournals.org] A 46 year-old female patient presented to the hospital with ongoing and progressively increasing fatigue, severe nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, constipation, palpitations[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Read More CE/CME Hyperkalemia in Adults: Review of a Common Electrolyte Imbalance Author: Melanie Douglas, PA-C Denise Rizzolo, PhD, PA-C Danielle Kruger, PA-C, MS Ed Although[mdedge.com]
