  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    After blood sampling for cortisol and ACTH assay, treatment should be commenced by parenteral hydrocortisone hemisuccinate together with the correction of hypoglycemia and hypovolemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients receiving fludrocortisone acetate may experience gastrointestinal upset, edema, hypertension, hypokalemia, insomnia, and excitability.[pharmacytimes.com] Orthostatic hypotension and salt craving can be prominent in primary insufficiency due to aldosterone deficiency leading to profound volume depletion.[ime.acponline.org]

  • Loop Diuretic

    […] severe hypokalemia or other electrolyte abnormalities were observed between the groups.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Torsemide has infrequent, mild, and transient adverse effects; among the most common are orthostatic hypotension, fatigue, dizziness, and nervousness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , syncope, and other manifestations of hypovolemia.[skepticfiles.org]

  • Laxative Abuse

    Laxative abuse can cause hypokalemia and volume depletion. Hypokalemia, in turn, can lead to rhabdomyolysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Acute diarrhea: Metabolic acidosis due to hypovolemia Chronic diarrhea: Metabolic alkalosis secondary to hypokalemia-induced inhibition of chloride uptake in the intestine[tipsdiscover.com] There may also be abdominal pain, weight loss, nausea, vomiting and hypokalemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lipoid Nephrosis

    The result is edema and hypovolemia , which stimulates tubular reabsorption of sodium and water to increase intravascular volume.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] hypotension). loss of appetite fatigue Causes of nephrotic syndrome Some of the causes of nephrotic syndrome include: changes to the immune system (minimal change disease[betterhealth.vic.gov.au] Treatment includes measures to clear proteinuria, reverse hypovolemia, and reduce edema.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Cerebral Salt-Wasting Syndrome

    Profound hypovolemia causes hypotension.[symptoma.com] The proximal site of salt transport defect has been suggested by the absence of hyperreninemia and hypokalemia, which would be a distinguishing feature of Bartter's syndrome[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] hypotension sometimes resulting in fainting . [5] Other symptoms frequently associated with dysautonomia include: headaches , pallor , malaise , facial flushing, constipation[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Pheochromocytoma

    Tachycardia may occur in response to tumor manipulation, antihypertensive treatment or hypovolemia.[clinicalpainadvisor.com] The value of triad plus orthostatic hypotension was studied too.[jdmdonline.biomedcentral.com] […] hypertensive patients with pheochromocytoma but not previously as an isolated finding. 20,21 Three patients became symptomatic on standing, possibly explained by the relative hypovolemia[hyper.ahajournals.org]

  • 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] The efficacy of fludrocortisone as a treatment for postflight hypovolemia and orthostatic hypotension in astronauts has not been studied.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] risk of hypokalemia, such as corticosteroids.[pdr.net]
