1,470 Possible Causes for Hypoglycemia, Syncope

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    However, the risk for hypoglycemia was not increased.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 66-year-old man, chronic smoker, presented with episodes of syncope, hypotension and constitutional symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Of 65 serious AEs reported by 32 patients (20 per 100 patient-years), four were considered to be possibly related to DR-HC: acute AI (n   2), gastritis (n   1) and syncope[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acromegaly

    The present article reports the case of a 50-year-old male acromegalic patient who presented symptoms of syncope induced by ventricular tachycardia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A risk of hypoglycemia should be presumed, especially when patients receive insulin therapy, as the package inserts caution.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] all patients (97%; 32/33) experienced AEs; the most common AEs were nasopharyngitis (48.5%), hyperglycemia (42.4%), diabetes mellitus (24.2%), constipation (18.2%), and hypoglycemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypoglycemia

    A 64 year-old African female was brought to the emergency room with a 1-month history of recurrent syncope, weight loss, and abdominal bloating.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] See also [ edit ] Diabetic Hypoglycemia (journal) Idiopathic hypoglycemia Neonatal hypoglycemia Spontaneous hypoglycemia References [ edit ] a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o[en.wikipedia.org] The symptoms include being: Hungry Shaky Sleepy Anxious Dizzy Confused or nervous Sweaty Irritable Syncope (Passing out, losing consciousness) Some people have trouble speaking[hormone.org]

  • Heat Stroke

    Hyperkalemia and hypoglycemia may occur. Classic heatstroke takes 2 to 3 days of exposure to develop.[merckmanuals.com] Individuals with heat stroke were identified and compared to control subjects with mild heat illness such as heat exhaustion, heat edema, heat cramps, and heat syncope.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Heat cramps: Symptoms are painful muscle spasms in the arms, legs, or abdomen Heat syncope (fainting): Symptoms of heat syncope or fainting are Heat exhaustion is a warning[medicinenet.com]

  • Cardiac Arrest

    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] She had a neurally-mediated syncope that progressed to asystole, probably because of concurrent factors as dehydration, beta-blocking and probably individual susceptibility[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The good news is that research shows CPR does not hurt syncope patients (and might even help), so if you mistake syncope for cardiac arrest, it won't matter.[verywell.com]

  • Insulinoma

    A 71-year-old woman had an episode of syncope due to hypoglycemia of 27 mg/dl.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] postprandial hypoglycemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She had been experiencing dizziness for 8 months and had a similar episode of syncope 2 months earlier. Stephanie L.[healio.com]

  • Dumping Syndrome

    The dizzy spells and syncopal attacks disappeared with dietary adjustment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] after the decline in circulating insulin to undetectable levels, and (4) inadequate glucagon response to hypoglycemia resulting in sustained hypoglycemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 2-year-old boy, having undergone fundoplication for gastroesophageal reflux disease and fed by gastrostomy, presented with recurrent emesis, syncope with hypoglycemia, and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anorexia Nervosa

    TC should be considered as a potential AN complication, but it may be triggered by hypoglycemia of any etiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Difficulties concentrating Abnormal laboratory findings (anemia, low thyroid and hormone levels, low potassium, low blood cell counts, slow heart rate) Dizziness Fainting/syncope[nationaleatingdisorders.org] In the acute state of the disease it is common for patients to report dizziness, fatigue, or even syncope .[brainblogger.com]

  • Transient Ischemic Attack

    A 43-year-old man presented with recurrent transient syncope was admitted under impression of transient ischemia attack.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Diagnosis is then a matter of excluding other possible diagnoses such as migraines, seizures, and hypoglycemia.[symptoma.com] […] transient ischemic attack : a brief episode of cerebral ischemia that is usually characterized by temporary blurring of vision, slurring of speech, numbness, paralysis, or syncope[merriam-webster.com]

  • Addison's Disease

    The laboratory tests revealed anemia and hypoglycemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Signs and symptoms include low blood pressure, nausea and vomiting, syncope, hypoglycemia, hyponatremia, hyperkalemia, a metabolic acidosis, lethergy, confusion, and convulsions[openanesthesia.org] If there is subtle evidence of AD, such as unexplained hypoglycemia or unreasonably reduced insulin requirements, adrenal functions must be studied as soon as possible, even[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
