235 Possible Causes for Hypokalemia, Ketosis

  • Diabetic Ketotic Coma

    […] also eliminates ketone bodies (2) insulin – turn off gluconeogenesis/glycogenolysis [K ] must be carefully monitored, since insulin causes K to enter cells – hyperkalemia Þ hypokalemia[] During ketosis, ketones can easily be detected in the urine.[] The major causes of death are circulatory collapse, hypokalemia, infection, and cerebral edema.[]

  • Diabetic Ketoacidosis

    PURPOSE: To compare one vs. two bag system with respect to blood glucose variability (BGV), time for resolution of acidosis and incidence of hypoglycemia, hypokalemia, and[] This particular presentation of diabetes has been termed as ketosis-prone type 2 diabetes (KPDM) or atypical diabetes.[] KEYWORDS: Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA); acidemia; cerebral edema; hypokalemia; metabolic acidosis; type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM)[]

  • Coma

    Synonym(s): Persistent Vegetative State Table of Contents (click to jump to sections) What is Coma? A coma, sometimes also called persistent vegetative state, is a profound or deep state of unconsciousness. Persistent vegetative state is not brain-death. An individual in a state of coma is alive but unable to[…][]

  • Acidosis

    However, in severe cases accompanied by hypokalemia, correction of the hypokalemia may be necessary first.[] Synonyms Acidosis, metabolic Alcohol induced ketoacidosis Alcoholic ketoacidosis Ketoacidosis due to acute alcohol intoxication Ketoacidosis due to acute alcoholic intoxication Ketosis[] […] that is marked by sickly sweet breath, headache, nausea and vomiting, and visual disturbances and is usually a result of excessive acid production — compare alkalosis , ketosis[]

  • Vomiting of Pregnancy

    […] pregnant women and is associated with persistent vomiting (more than three episodes per day) that results in severe dehydration, ketonuria, electrolyte abnormalities such as hypokalemia[] […] gravidarum is nausea and vomiting severe enough to cause physiological and biochemical effects, including significant dehydration, often with electrolyte abnormalities, ketosis[] Complications In severe cases, dehydration, weight loss, electrolyte disturbance (eg, ketosis) and nutritional deficiency can occur.[]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Rarely, DKA patients may present with significant hypokalemia.[] "Essential labile diabetes" is an insulin-dependent diabetes, in the course of which irregular and unpredictable hyperglycemias, frequently with ketosis, and sometimes serious[] Users of insulin pumps, by virtue of absent reservoirs of subcutaneous insulin, may present with ketosis and more normal blood glucose levels.[]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    The presence of thyrotoxicosis and hypokalemia does not always indicate a diagnosis of TPP.[] The increased NADH levels favours accumulation of hydroxyl butyrate thus leading to ketosis [ 17 ]. 5.[] Abstract Recent reports have emphasized the occurrence of a myopathy in chronic alcoholism associated with hypokalemia.[]

  • Psychosis

    An association is documented between hypokalemia and an acute psychotic decompensation in a patient with chronic schizophrenia.[] In young children, vomiting often accompanies morning hypoglycemia with ketosis.[] […] cardiac arrhythmias, as well as other circumstances that may increase the risk of the occurrence of torsade de pointes and/or sudden death, including symptomatic bradycardia, hypokalemia[]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    Here, we present a case of a heart donor with severe electrolyte imbalance, specifically severe hypokalemia, and severe hypernatremia.[] Eades, “Metabolism and Ketosis”. [1]Effects of insulin on renal sodium excretion. Gupta AK, Clark RV, Kirchner KA.[] […] hypomagnesemia t widened hypercalcemia t tall hyperkalemia hypomagnesemia t inverted hypokalemia shallow, flat u prominent hypokalemia[]

  • Short Bowel Syndrome

    Hypokalemia, however, is a potentially underrecognized cause of rhabdomyolysis.[] […] to increased energy consumption. [20] , [21] Limitations of MCT include the fact that they do not provide essential fatty acids (FAs) and can cause nausea, vomiting and ketosis[] It features weight loss, diarrhoea, fatty stools (steatorrhoea), and deficiencies of sodium, potassium and trace elements (hyponatremia, and hypokalemia).[]
