1,381 Possible Causes for Hypoglycemia, Hypokalemia

  • Acute Gastroenteritis

    It is known that these patients are more susceptible to hypokalemia than normal individuals.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ORT DEFINITION OF ORT FAILURE 1 emesis after Ondansetron Refusal to take from syringe/cup for 30 minutes HYPOGLYCEMIA Defined as glucose 70 in all ages Give 2mL/kg of D10W[chop.edu] hypokalemia.[omicsonline.org]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    Patients receiving fludrocortisone acetate may experience gastrointestinal upset, edema, hypertension, hypokalemia, insomnia, and excitability.[pharmacytimes.com] However, the risk for hypoglycemia was not increased.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Excess aldosterone results in sodium retention, hypokalemia , and alkalosis. Aldosterone deficiency results in sodium loss, hyperkalemia, and acidosis.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    The presence of thyrotoxicosis and hypokalemia does not always indicate a diagnosis of TPP.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , positional asphyxia or suffocation by inhalation of vomit, exposure to cold coupled with alcohol-induced hypothermia, as well as various metabolic disturbances such as hypoglycemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Alcoholism & Hypoglycemia Alcoholism is the enhanced consumption of ethanol ( 120ml/day) and hypoglycemia is a condition where there is decreased blood glucose levels ( [[pubs.sciepub.com]

  • Heat Stroke

    […] confusional state (58.97%),coma (29.48%), seizure (33.33%),and vomiting (26.92%).Vital parameters were recorded and laboratory parameters revealed hypophosphatemia, hyponatremia, hypokalemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hyperkalemia and hypoglycemia may occur. Classic heatstroke takes 2 to 3 days of exposure to develop.[merckmanuals.com] On admission, the common electrolyte disturbances were hypokalemia (71.2 %), hypophosphatemia (59.1 %), hyponatremia (53.0 %), hypocalcemia (51.5 %), and hypomagnesemia (34.9[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Fludrocortisone

    In 3 patients, fludrocortisone treatment was complicated by hypokalemia, and in 1 patient by hypertension, which necessitated a dose reduction or brief cessation of therapy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (Moderate) Patients receiving corticosteroids during propranolol therapy may be at increased risk of hypoglycemia due to the loss of counter-regulatory cortisol response.[pdr.net] Metabolic: hypokalemia. Skin: bruising, diaphoresis, urticaria, allergic rash. Effects on lab test results • May increase serum sodium level.[glowm.com]

  • Cardiac Arrest

    Hypokalemia has many causes. The Penn State Milton S.[livestrong.com] We present a case of hypoglycemia, which after intravenous glucose replacement, led to cardiac arrest secondary to a profound extracellular potassium shift.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The H’s Hypovolemia - Insufficient blood volume Hypoxia - insufficient oxygenation Hydrogen ion - acidosis Hyper-/hypokalemia Hypothermia - insufficient heat Hypo-/Hyperglycemia[medictests.com]

  • Reye Syndrome

    […] elevated serum amino acid levels, acid-base disturbances (usually with hyperventilation, mixed respiratory alkalosis–metabolic acidosis), osmolar changes, hypernatremia, hypokalemia[merckmanuals.com] Laboratory evaluation revealed initial hypoglycemia, and markedly elevated liver enzymes, prolonged clotting times, and elevated ammonia levels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In Reye-like syndrome, because of inborn errors of metabolism, hypoglycemia, hypoketonemia, elevated ammonia, and organic aciduria are often evident.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bicarbonate

    However, the bicarbonate therapy in DKA has several potentially deleterious effects including worsening of hypokalemia and intracellular acidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Both agents are equally effective in reducing the incidence of CIN, but the citrate would possibly be a safer option for patients at risk of hypokalemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 40-year-old woman presented with general weakness, hypokalemia, and metabolic acidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Benzthiazide

  • Caffeine

    Excessive ingestion of caffeine can induce hypokalemia, which affects the neuromuscular system and can lead to paralysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] People may experience dizziness, hypoglycemia, fruit-like breath odor, troubled breathing, muscle tremors, nausea, diarrhea, increased urine, ketones in urine,drowsiness,[uhs.umich.edu] Excessive intake of caffeine may produce arrhythmias and pronounced hypokalemia and ensuing ventricular fibrillation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
