257 Possible Causes for Hypertension, Obesity, Variable Hypoglycemia

  • Diabetes Mellitus Type 2

    OBJECTIVE: To determine types and frequency of side effects of antihypertensive drugs in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) type 2 and hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The choice of glycemic target also depends on consideration of other variables, such as risk for hypoglycemia, weight gain, and other drug-related adverse effects, as well[doi.org] SSB and Childhood Obesity Childhood obesity is known to increase risk of obesity in adulthood and can lead to serious consequences for T2DM and cardiovascular disease risk[dx.doi.org]

  • 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] CONTEXT: Obesity and diabetes are increasing in the United States. OBJECTIVE: To estimate the prevalence of obesity and diabetes among US adults in 2001.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Insulin Resistance

    Study confirms high rate of uncontrolled hypertension; Uncontrolled hypertension common in workforce. Preventive Cardiology Clinic. 2002 June:6,7. John JH et al.[whitakerwellness.com] Armen, Simulation and qualitative analysis of glucose variability, mean glucose, and hypoglycemia after subcutaneous insulin therapy for stress hyperglycemia, Theoretical[doi.org] Obese women pregnancy runs on the background of hypertriglyceridemia and type IV hyperlipoproteinemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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] Untreated myxedema leads to obesity, infertility, heart diseases, and arthritis.[symptoma.com]

  • Empty Sella Syndrome

    The combination of the empty sella syndrome (ESS) and benign intracranial hypertension (BIH) is illustrated by two case histories.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Moderate hyperprolactinemia, as the result of stalk compression, has been variably reported in approx 5% of patients (146).[78stepshealth.us] Primary empty sella syndrome (ESS) shares with idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) high intracranial pressure (ICP) and association with obesity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Islet Cell Tumor

    A 22-year-old woman presented with lump in the left hypochondrium, refractory high-protein ascites and evidence of left-sided portal hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] PNETs are functional or non-functional tumors and represent a heterogeneous group of neoplasms with extremely variable clinical behavior.[ec.bioscientifica.com] Other factors that may increase the risk include smoking, drinking alcohol, obesity and a family history of cancer.[cancercouncil.com.au]

  • 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] Abstract An obese 68-year-old woman was admitted for examination of fasting hypoglycaemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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] We report the exceptional case of a 38-year-old obese woman who experienced recurrent neuroglycopenia 3 weeks after delivery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diabetes in Pregnancy

    Hypertension 2005, 46 :1243–1249. PubMed CrossRef Google Scholar 47.[doi.org] Adjusted Odds Ratios for Associations between Maternal Glucose as a Categorical Variable and Primary Outcomes.[content.nejm.org] The researchers also studied women who were obese, as it is well recognised that maternal obesity is a risk factor for childhood obesity.[cam.ac.uk]

  • Hypoventilation

    However, the severity of pulmonary hypertension in OHS is variable.[erj.ersjournals.com] , postnatal heart rate variability, body temperature regulation, or hypoglycemia.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] Neural respiratory drive in obesity. Thorax. 2009; 64 (8):719–25. [ PubMed ] 29. Yap JC, et al. Effects of posture on respiratory mechanics in obesity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
