1,086 Possible Causes for Hyperkalemia, 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]

  • Malaria

    […] in parts of asia, africa, central and south america, oceania, and certain caribbean islands; characterized by extreme exhaustion associated with paroxysms of high fever, sweating[icd9data.com] […] days after the mosquito bites, the victim will suffer from headache; fatique; nausea; hard, shaking chills with a fever that lasts from 12 to 24 hours; rapid breathing and sweating[web.archive.org] Signs and symptoms include paroxysmal high fever, sweating, chills, and anemia.[fpnotebook.com]

  • Malignant Hyperthermia

    Muscle rigidity, hypercarbia, and hyperkalemia were not observed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical manifestations include: CO 2 increase, tachycardia, haemodynamic instability, metabolic and respiratory acidosis, profuse sweating, hyperpyrexia, CPK increase, myoglobinuria[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] uncontrolled sarcoplasmic calcium release via functionally altered calcium release receptors, resulting in hypoxemia, hypercapnia, tachycardia, muscular rigidity, acidosis, hyperkalemia[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]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] mineral balance in the body through loss of this sweat.[sosrehydrate.com.au] Hyponatremia, hyperkalemia, dehydration, and metabolic acidosis are the primary findings that permit the diagnosis of CAH.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heat Exhaustion

    , and low air humidity which can allow sweat to evaporate.[symptoma.com] Sweat It Sweat is mostly water, with some sodium chloride, also known as salt, in it. When sweat evaporates from your skin on hot days, that cools you inside.[boyslife.org] Sweating allows a person to cool through evaporation, but once a person becomes too dehydrated to sweat, the body temperature can rise rapidly and dramatically.[australiawidefirstaid.com.au]

  • 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]

  • Heart Failure

    The incidence of serious hyperkalemia was minimal in both groups of patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A previously healthy 21 year old Sri Lankan female admitted with shortness of breath for 1 week duration with associated low grade fever and profuse sweating.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Serious hyperkalemia occurred in 10 patients in the placebo group (1 percent) and 14 patients in the spironolactone group (2 percent, P 0.42).[doi.org]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    It presents with asymptomatic hyperkalemia along with hyperchloraemic metabolic acidosis without significant renal function impairment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms may include: Sweating (almost always present). Check for sweating on the back of your neck at your hairline. Nervousness, shakiness, and weakness.[web.archive.org] Medscape Education Diabetes & Endocrinology , March 2018 Managing Patients on RAAS Inhibitors CME / ABIM MOC / CE Clinical Case Challenges for Managing Hyperkalemia in Patients[medscape.org]

  • Orthostatic Hypotension

    […] depletion Electrolytes Electrolyte abnormalities from vomiting or diarrhea, or as cause of cardiac conduction abnormalities; clues to adrenal insufficiency (hyponatremia, hyperkalemia[aafp.org] […] necessary, including symptoms elicited by OH, medications that the patient is taking and autonomic failure indications, such as severe constipation, incontinence, irregular sweating[symptoma.com] Certain medications can cause orthostatic hypotension, as can dehydration due to vomiting, diarrhea, untreated diabetes , or excessive sweating.[kidshealth.org]
