16 Possible Causes for Hyperreninemia, Hypokalemic Nephropathy, Muscle Weakness

  • Bartter's Disease

    Clinical findings Proximal muscle weakness, failure to thrive, short stature, convulsions, tetany, cramps, ileus, gout, mental retardation, enuresis, nocturia, polyuria, salt[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] I understand that hypokalemic nephropathy can occur. Is it common in patient's with bartter's syndrome? : Thank you. : M.[madeasy.de] Saint-Petersburg, Russia Abstract Abstract Bartter syndrome (BS) tubulopathy with autosomal recessive (AR) type of genetic inheritance, manifested hypokalemia, metabolic alkalosis, hyperreninemia[adc.bmj.com]

  • Hypokalemic Nephropathy

    There is generalized muscle weakness, characterized by ventroflexion of the neck; other signs include weight loss, chronic vomiting and constipation.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] We report a case of hypokalemic nephropathy associated with primary Sjögren's syndrome (SS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Excessive aldosterone production may result from congenital adrenal hyperplasia, glucocorticoid treatment, some genetic defects and hyperreninemia. • Intrinsic renal potassium[symbiosisonlinepublishing.com]

  • Conn Syndrome

    Low potassium may cause fatigue, muscle cramps, muscle weakness, numbness, or temporary paralysis.[endocrinediseases.org] When renin increases (due to low blood pressure, decreased blood flow to the kidneys or to a sodium deficiency), aldosterone increases; when renin decreases, aldosterone decreases.In[labtestsonline.org.au] Condition similar to Conn's syndrome may be caused by kidneys that can produce an excessive amount of renin.[health-tutor.com]

    In addition, patients can experience muscle weakness and cramping as well as hearing loss and intellectual disability.[sema4.com] It has been postulated that chronic activation of the renin-angiotensin system, hypokalemic nephropathy, indomethacin exposure, and nephrocalcinosis all play a role in the[cancertherapyadvisor.com] Rofecoxib suppressed hyperreninemia to a similar extent as indomethacin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
