142 Possible Causes for Hypertension, Hypothermia, Variable Hypoglycemia

  • Hypoglycemia

    On hospital day 8 the patient developed hypertensive emergency and was taken to the operating room for exploratory laparotomy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Glycemic variability portends increased risk for hypoglycemia and should be a focus of further research.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hyperinsulinemia can also result from in utero or perinatal stress (eg, maternal hypertension, prematurity, small for gestational age, hypoxia, Caesarian delivery). [5] These[emedicine.com]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Prevalence of hypertension and DM were 55.9% and 23.3% respectively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Associated Complications: CNS : retinopathy, peripheral neuropathies , and autonomic neuropathy (decreased heart rate variability, orthostatic hypotension, gastroparesis,[openanesthesia.org] Severe hypothermia, if present, is a poor prognostic sign ( 33 ).[web.archive.org]

  • Myxedema

    […] to prevalence of the effect of alpha-adrenergic receptors, increased catecholamines, and increased systemic vascular resistance, causing some patients to have diastolic hypertension[emedicine.com] Serum potassium levels are extremely variable. Blood glucose levels are generally in the normal range, but severe hypoglycemia can occur.[emjournal.net] Among important causative factors leading to catastrophic events in myxedema is life threatening hypothermia, heart and cerebral dysfunctions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy

    No other underlying cause of the hypertension was discovered. Rechallenge of the patient with octreotide resulted in a transient hypertensive episode, which lasted 3 h.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Subclinical neuropathy, however, as diagnosed from measurement of heart rate variability, may diminish the awareness of hypoglycemia but does not affect counterregulatory[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Changes in the body's ability to regulate temperature may make you more prone to body chilling (hypothermia) or heat-related illness, such as heatstroke or heat exhaustion[uwhealth.org]

  • Autonomic Neuropathy

    No other underlying cause of the hypertension was discovered. Rechallenge of the patient with octreotide resulted in a transient hypertensive episode, which lasted 3 h.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] an algorithm for prediction of hypoglycemia in both bedbound and active patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Changes in the body's ability to regulate temperature may make you more prone to body chilling (hypothermia) or heat-related illness, such as heatstroke or heat exhaustion[peacehealth.org]

  • Insulinoma

    The possible etiology of hypertension induced by an insulinoma is catecholamine release in response to hypoglycemia, which may cause acute hypertension through activation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A somatostatin analog, octreotide (100 to 500 mcg sc bid to tid), is variably effective and should be considered for patients with continuing hypoglycemia refractory to diazoxide[merckmanuals.com] It may also present with transient hemiplegia, hypothermia or hyperthermia, convulsions, diplopia and strabismus [ 9 ] .[patient.info]

  • Myxedema Coma

    (PAH) , Pulmonary Hypertension , Thyroid Disease , Writing[nursing.ceconnection.com] Serum potassium levels are extremely variable. Blood glucose levels are generally in the normal range, but severe hypoglycemia can occur.[emjournal.net] A 6-year-old Chinese girl presented with coma and hypothermia preceded by pneumonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neonatal Hypoglycemia

    BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: β blockers are widely used in the treatment of hypertensive disorders during pregnancy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] study provides new evidence of variability of MRI-defined brain injury in neonates with symptomatic hypoglycemia, and their neurodevelopmental outcomes at 18-24 months.[pediatricneurologybriefs.com] Hypothermia 5. Hyperviscosity 6. Erythroblastosis fetalis, fetal hydrops 7. Other a. Iatrogenic causes b. Congenital cardiac malformations C.[aafp.org]

  • Sepsis

    The first patient was an 88-year-old man with hypertension, gallstones, hepatic cysts, and chest pain; the second one was a 79-year-old man with chest pain and hypertension[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This conclusion is supported by the wide variability in hypoglycemia rates reported with protocols [ 205, 206, 207, 212, 213 ].[doi.org] Abstract Sepsis is the systemic response to infection manifested as hyperthermia or hypothermia, tachycardia, tachypnea, and shock.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Encephalopathy

    […] past because of hypertensive crises.[stroke.ahajournals.org] This highly variable prognosis is exemplified by patients that get encephalopathy from hypoglycemia.[medicinenet.com] HIE receiving hypothermia treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
