1,123 Possible Causes for Hypoglycemia, Hypokalemia

  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication

    The most common finding was hyperlactinemia occurring in 66% of the patients (n 128) followed by hypokalemia ( 6.1 mmol/L) in 40.2% of the children (n 78).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Previous case reports suggest hypoglycemia and faster than normal rates of alcohol elimination found in children with acute alcohol intoxication compared with adults, but[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] intoxication stems from many complications that arise in the presence of large quantities of ethanol in the circulation ( 350mg/100ml), including lactic acidosis, hypokalemia, hypoglycemia[symptoma.com]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    The presence of thyrotoxicosis and hypokalemia does not always indicate a diagnosis of TPP.[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] Recent reports have emphasized the occurrence of a myopathy in chronic alcoholism associated with hypokalemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    In most cases, it is a result of diuretic therapy, which causes activation of the renin-angiotensin system, chloride depletion, increased distal sodium delivery, hypokalemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] rate of recurrent heart failure, whereas its benefit in reducing the risk of metabolic and nutritional disorders largely reflects a reduced incidence of hypokalemia and hypoglycemia[doi.org] Other poor prognostic factors include left ventricular dysfunction with ejection fraction less than 20%, secondary renal insufficiency, hyponatremia and hypokalemia (with[symptoma.com]

  • Portal Cirrhosis

    ., spontaneous bacterial peritonitis ) Gastrointestinal bleeding Constipation Portal vein thrombosis Hypovolemia /exsiccosis and electrolyte disturbances ( hypokalemia, hyponatremia[amboss.com] Continued fluid and electrolyte imbalances and inefficient metabolism of nutrients produce ascites, hypoglycemia, and hypoproteinemia.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Screen for hypoxia, hypoglycemia, anemia, hypokalemia, metabolic alkalosis, and other potential metabolic or endocrine factors; correct as indicated.[aafp.org]

  • Islet Cell Tumor

    Hypokalemia was associated with hypoglycemia in some patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Non-islet cell tumor hypoglycemia(NICTH) is a rare cause of recurrent hypoglycemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The symptoms of VIPomas include copious amounts of watery diarrhea, hypokalemia, and dehydration.[symptoma.com]

  • Cardiac Arrest

    The debate in the literature is ongoing, but at the present time, SB administration is only recommended for cardiac arrest related to hypokalemia or overdose of tricyclic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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] Causes Hypokalemia has many causes. The Penn State Milton S.[livestrong.com]

  • Acute Liver Failure

    Also, severe electrolye abnormalities (hyponatremia, hypophosphatemia, hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia, also metabolic acidosis). Patients often need CVVH. 5.[errolozdalga.com] During the first 2 years of her life, a series of infections with episodes of fever were accompanied by elevated liver enzyme levels, but hyperammonemia, hypoglycemia, coagulopathy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Correction of hypokalemia is essential as hypokalemia increases the kidneys' ammonia production, potentially exacerbating encephalopathy.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Coma

    […] of various symptom categories in response to hypoglycemia in intensively treated type 1 diabetic (T1DM) patients with different degrees of hypoglycemia unawareness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, hypoglycemia should be avoided in the treatment of diabetes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In people with diabetes, blood sugar levels that become too high (hyperglycemia) or too low (hypoglycemia) can cause a coma. Lack of oxygen.[mayoclinic.org]

  • Anorexia Nervosa

    Nutritional support was begun slowly, however electrolyte derangements began to manifest on hospital day 2, with hypophosphatemia, hypokalemia, hypocalcemia, and hypomagnesemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] TC should be considered as a potential AN complication, but it may be triggered by hypoglycemia of any etiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients with chronic emesis and use of cathartics present with classic metabolic disturbance: hypokalemia, hypochloremia, and metabolic alkalosis.[acphospitalist.org]

  • Hepatic Encephalopathy

    […] helpful to use as a framework to think about precipitants: - Increased ammonia production/absorption: - Excess dietary protein - GI bleed (protein load) - Electrolytes (hypokalemia[errolozdalga.com] […] measures for the treatment of acute hepatic encephalopathy include correction and avoidance of any factor that could potentially aggravate pre-existent encephalopathy, such as hypoglycemia[healthcentral.com] […] varices ) dietary intake of large quantities of protein (e.g. meat) reduced nitrogen excretion constipation renal failure metabolic or drug interactions hyponatremia or hypokalemia[radiopaedia.org]
