3,741 Possible Causes for Hypokalemia, Patchy Areas of Villous Atrophy, Xeroderma

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    The presence of thyrotoxicosis and hypokalemia does not always indicate a diagnosis of TPP.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Recent reports have emphasized the occurrence of a myopathy in chronic alcoholism associated with hypokalemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Laboratory data revealed hypokalemia (2.2 mmol/L), elevated creatine kinase (7282 U/L), metabolic alkalosis and reduced urine potassium, albumin, and total protein.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Rarely, DKA patients may present with significant hypokalemia.[web.archive.org] To prevent hypokalemia, potassium replacement is initiated after serum levels fall below the upper level of normal for the particular laboratory (5.0–5.2 mEq/l).[web.archive.org] Moreover, several deleterious effects of bicarbonate therapy have been reported, such as increased risk of hypokalemia, decreased tissue oxygen uptake ( 65 ), cerebral edema[web.archive.org]

  • Malabsorption Syndrome

    One or more boratory alterations (increased erythrocyte sedimentaion rate, anemia, hypokalemia, and low serum albumin vel) were found in 62% of patients with organic diarrhea[doi.org] […] cobalamin absorption with megaloblastic anemia ) Fat-soluble vitamin deficiencies Vitamins S ymp toms Causes Sources Vitamin A Night blindness Retinopathy Xerophthalmia Xeroderma[amboss.com] It was most probably caused by the severe hypokalemia despite central intravenous treatment (figure 2). Unfortunately, the T.[omicsonline.org]

  • Celiac Disease

    This article describes a toddler who initially presented with recurrent diarrhea and weight loss with a significant secondary hypokalemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient had normal anion-gap metabolic acidosis (pH   7.16) with persisting hypokalemia, hyponatremia, hypomagnesemia and hypophosphatemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Electrolyte imbalances, such as low potassium level ( hypokalemia ), low calcium level (hypocalcemia), and low magnesium level (hypomagnesemia), may be present.[emedicinehealth.com]

  • 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] […] muscle weakness Delirium Death Abnormal laboratory signs include low phosphate levels (hypophosphatemia), low blood sugar levels, ( hypoglycemia ), low potassium level ( hypokalemia[my.clevelandclinic.org] Patients with chronic emesis and use of cathartics present with classic metabolic disturbance: hypokalemia, hypochloremia, and metabolic alkalosis.[acphospitalist.org]

  • Primary Hyperparathyroidism

    Therefore, the mechanisms underlying persistent aldosterone over secretion despite suppression of the renin-angiotensin system and the hypokalemia have been a “puzzle” for[hyper.ahajournals.org] […] evidenced a “nondipper” profile (daytime: 139.8/87.6 mm Hg, night-time: 164.5/96.0 mm Hg; normal range: Laboratory Values and Imaging Tests The patient had a persistent hypokalemia[hyper.ahajournals.org] […] induces sodium and water retention and arterial hypertension, which suppress the renin-angiotensin system and, therefore, would blunt aldosterone secretion. 21 – 23 Moreover, hypokalemia[hyper.ahajournals.org]

  • Pellagra

    A 20-year-old woman was seen with the associated disorders of pellagra and anorexia nervosa, both of which had been present for approximately six months. Treatment with niacin induced resolution of the pellagra skin changes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tropical Sprue

    Blood tests showed hypokalemia of 2.9 mmol/l, hypomagnesemia of 1.3 mmol/l and hypoalbuminemia of 2.3 g/dL. Complete blood cell count was normal.[scielo.mec.pt] Furthermore, EME identified patchy areas of partial villous atrophy in 16 patients (5 CD and 11 TS) in whom standard endoscopy was normal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Specific therapy for dehydration, lactic acidosis, hypokalemia, and hyponatremia should be instituted.[history.amedd.army.mil]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    Hypokalemia Hypokalemia is uncommon but can develop in patients with very poor intake of potassium, gastrointestinal or urinary loss of potassium, or diarrhea or in patients[emedicine.medscape.com]
