14 Possible Causes for Hypertension, Muscle Mass Decreased, Supraclavicular Fat Pads

  • Obesity

    […] men without hypertension was 2.31 (95% CI, 1.96-2.72) ( Table 4 ).[doi.org] In elderly patients, obesity induces a decrease in skeletal muscle strength and mass, which is linked to age-related sarcopenia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] mass, decreasing in starvation and increasing during resistive activity when sufficient protein was ingested.[doi.org]

  • Morbid Obesity

    Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis can lead to portal hypertension, which can further manifest as upper gastrointestinal bleeding.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In addition, the amount of muscle in your body tends to decrease with age. This lower muscle mass leads to a decrease in metabolism.[mayoclinic.org] Similarly, 22.0% of Veterans obtained partial and 13.0% obtained complete resolution from hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cushing Syndrome

    At 18 weeks of gestation, severe hypertension developed. Medical history was significant for chronic hypertension, nephrolithiasis, and an atrial myxoma excised in 2011.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] hump"), increased supraclavicular fat pads, and white abdominal striae.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Potential complications of Cushing Syndrome include vulnerability to infections, osteoporosis, hypertension, and a decrease in muscle mass The treatment of Cushing Syndrome[dovemed.com]

  • ACTH-Dependent Cushing Syndrome

    In CAH an inherited genetic defect leads to ACTH excess and dysregulated expression of steroid hormones potentially leading to masculinization and hypertension.[lifearc.org] Case: A 26-year-old male patient presented with moon face, purplish striae, supraclavicular fat pads and proximal muscle weakness.[endocrine-abstracts.org] mass.[mayoclinic.org]

  • Nelson Syndrome

    The prevalence of hypertension is related neither to the duration of disease nor to gender, while hypertensive patients were significantly older than normotensive patients[karger.com] fat pad, sometimes known as a 'buffalo hump' purple skin striae easy skin bruising acanthosis nigricans proximal myopathy depression and other mood disorders osteoporosis[radiopaedia.org] muscle mass and increased fat mass are noted and accompanied by a low metabolic rate which is approximately 60% of normal. 1, 2, 6 There are limited treatment options available[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Carcinoma of the Prostate

    While the liver is a common site of metastasis, tumor metastases are not a common cause of portal hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient had oral candidiasis, thin skin, multiple petechiae on the chest, a small supraclavicular fat pad and proximal muscle weakness.[ec.bioscientifica.com] mass, weakness Decreased bone mass (osteoporosis) Shrunken testicles Depression Loss of self-esteem, aggressiveness/alertness and higher cognitive functions such as prioritizing[mdanderson.org]

Acta Endocrinol 1988;118:346–350.[karger.com] Progressive central (truncal) obesity, facial rounding (moon facies), and supraclavicular and cervicodorsal fat pads (buffalo hump) representing fat redistribution are the[glowm.com] Other effects include a decrease in skeletal muscle mass, bone mineral density, sexual function, libido, and general well-being.[clinicalgate.com]

  • Diabetic Pseudotabes

    Thiazide diuretic should be added to the regimen of diabetes mellitus patients with uncontrolled hypertension and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) of 30 mL/min[specialty.mims.com] Skin (plethora; hirstutism; ance; telengectasia); Moon facies; Eyes (visual fields - fundi (HTN DM Papilloedema); Mouth thrush; Neck - supraclavicular fat pads; acanthosis[freezingblue.com] Motor peripheral neuropathy with muscle imbalance resulting from impaired innervation of muscles and tendons, first of the peroneal muscles, with decrease in muscle mass of[musculoskeletalkey.com]

  • Ovarian Stromal Hyperthecosis

    These women are obese, hypertensive and have high insulin levels.[med-ed.virginia.edu] She had moon facies with increased supraclavicular fat pads.[arcfertility.com] Clinical manifestations include hyperandrogenism, obesity, hypertension, and impaired glucose tolerance.[radiopaedia.org]

  • Acquired Adrenogenital Syndrome

    In many cases, the only manifestation is mild to moderate hypertension.[teleplexus.com] muscle mass proximal limb weakness hyperglycemia osteoperosis why is there decreased muscle mass in cushing's syndrome atrophy of type 2 muscle fibers from hypercortisolism[quizlet.com] Deficiency of 17-hydroxylase leads to deficiency of estrogens and androgens and to excess deoxycorticosterone, causing sexual infantilism and hypertension.[britannica.com]
