  • Hypoglycemia

    On this page: What is hypoglycemia? What are the symptoms of hypoglycemia? What causes hypoglycemia in people with diabetes? How can hypoglycemia be prevented?[] CASE PRESENTATION: 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.[] The symptoms include being: Hungry Shaky Sleepy Anxious Dizzy Confused or nervous Sweaty Irritable Syncope (Passing out, losing consciousness) Some people have trouble speaking[]

  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication

    Previous case reports suggest hypoglycemia and faster than normal rates of alcohol elimination found in children with acute alcohol intoxication compared with adults, but[] […] 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[] For children, blood glucose should be checked because ethanol can cause hypoglycemia.[]

  • Panic Attacks

    "Hyperventilation-Induced Syncope: No Need to Panic." Clinical Medicine and Research 1.2 (2003): 137-139. Friedlander, A.H., S.R. Marder, E.C. Sung, and J.S. Child.[] Risk factors Panic attacks are more common with: The use of stimulants like caffeine Hereditary factors Stressful situations Chemical imbalances as may occur with hypoglycemia[] […] attacks, it's important that you seek medical attention to rule out MVP and some of these other medical conditions that can act as causes of panic attack: Hyperthyroidism Hypoglycemia[]

  • Transient Ischemic Attack

    Diagnosis is then a matter of excluding other possible diagnoses such as migraines, seizures, and hypoglycemia.[] Department of Medicine, Taipei Medical University Wan-Fang Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan, ROC. Abstract A 43-year-old man presented with recurrent transient syncope[] […] 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[]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    […] on the right side of the heart, and it may be more easily felt Eyes or feet may be puffy as the right heart fails Chest pain Palpitations (irregular heartbeat) Dizziness Syncope[] People whose heart failure is primarily low output heart failure are more likely to have low blood pressure, lightheadedness, and syncope.[] Light-headedness or syncope. Anorexia.[]

  • Addison's Disease

    Signs and symptoms include low blood pressure, nausea and vomiting, syncope, hypoglycemia, hyponatremia, hyperkalemia, a metabolic acidosis, lethergy, confusion, and convulsions[] Orthostatic hypotension, fever, and hypoglycemia characterize acute adrenal crisis, whereas chronic primary adrenal insufficiency presents with a more insidious history of[] […] following signs and symptoms are usually presented by patients with primary adrenal insufficiency: Anorexia Weight loss Fatigue Muscular weakness Hyperpigmentation Hypotension Syncope[]

  • Factitious Hypoglycemia

    The patient was referred to endocrinology to rule out hypoglycemia as the cause of syncopal episodes after a venous fasting blood glucose level of 41 mg/dL was found.[] She denied surreptitious insulin administration, and the autoimmune hypoglycemia syndrome was considered.[] Sulfonylurea-induced hypoglycemia is more common than incidents of insulin abuse, and hypoglycemia caused by these oral agents is biochemically indistinguishable from insulinoma[]

  • Cardiac Arrest

    Physicians typically review medications that cause hypoglycemia, but other medications may interfere with potassium homeostasis with administration of glucose.[] She had a neurally-mediated syncope that progressed to asystole, probably because of concurrent factors as dehydration, beta-blocking and probably individual susceptibility[] Unlike other forms of syncope, in which a person may be suddenly or intermittently aroused, syncope with cardiac arrest will persist until heart function and circulation are[]

  • Anorexia Nervosa

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

  • Dumping Syndrome

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