724 Possible Causes for Hypokalemia, Polyuria

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    Patients receiving fludrocortisone acetate may experience gastrointestinal upset, edema, hypertension, hypokalemia, insomnia, and excitability.[pharmacytimes.com] Over the next few days, however, the patient developed severe thirst and polyuria exceeding 6 L of urine per day, accompanied by hypernatraemia and hypo-osmolar urine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Excess aldosterone results in sodium retention, hypokalemia , and alkalosis. Aldosterone deficiency results in sodium loss, hyperkalemia, and acidosis.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Conn Syndrome

    […] a cause of primary hyperaldosteronism and is the result of an aldosterone producing adenoma (APA) aldosterone secretion,supressed renin activity, hypernatremia, HTN hypokalemia[quizlet.com] […] pri·mar·y al·dos·ter·on·ism an adrenocortical disorder caused by excessive secretion of aldosterone and characterized by headaches, nocturia, polyuria, fatigue, hypertension[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] It is often symptomless, but may present with symptoms of hypokalaemia – such as muscle weakness, fatigue, polyuria, cramps. 2/3 are due to a solitary mineralocorticoid producing[almostadoctor.co.uk]

  • Renal Tubular Acidosis

    Subsequently, type 1 RTA due to Sjögren's syndrome was unveiled by sustained hypokalemia (3.3 to 3.4 mEq/L), persistent alkaline urine pH ( 6.0) despite metabolic acidosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Despite polyuria, both patients developed resistant hyperkalemia that needed further hemodialysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical Manifestations In children the clinical spectrum is nonspecific including anorexia, failure to thrive, vomiting and dehydration, constipation, polyuria, and polydipsia[renaltube.com]

  • Bartter's Disease

    Laboratory testing is significant for hypokalemia, hypochloremia, and metabolic alkalosis.[medbullets.com] Abstract Bartter syndrome is an autosomic recessive disease characterized by severe polyuria and sodium renal loss.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After birth he displayed extreme polyuria, severe renal sodium and chloride loss, and marked hypercalciuria.[link.springer.com]

  • Loop Diuretic

    […] severe hypokalemia or other electrolyte abnormalities were observed between the groups.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fatigue, muscle weakness, leg cramps NV, paralytic ileus Soft, flabby muscles Paresthesias, decreased reflexes Weak, irregular pulse Polyuria, hyperglycemia What are 5 key[quizlet.com] […] hyperuricemia, hypocalcemia, metabolic alkalosis ENDO: hyperglycemia GI: nausea, diarrhea, dry mouth, vomiting, anorexia, cramps, oral/gastric irritations, pancreatitis GU: polyuria[prezi.com]

  • Diabetic Ketoacidosis

    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 cerebral[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient developed polydipsia and polyuria one week before admission.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He reported polyuria, polydipsia, and general weakness. The patient had undergone preemptive, living-related kidney transplantation 5 weeks previously.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypokalemic Nephropathy

    Certain herbal products, like licorice and gan cao may be causative for hypokalemia.[symbiosisonlinepublishing.com] Hypokalemia can lead to a renal concentrating defect leading to polyuria and polydipsia- DI 2.[nephronpower.com] Chronic diarrhea commonly causes hypokalemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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] Here, a 32 years old lady with burning to colicky recurrent upper abdominal pain, polyuria, polydipsia associated with anorexia, dyspepsia, generalized body ache, joint pain[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] "Stones" refers to kidney stones , nephrocalcinosis , and diabetes insipidus (polyuria and polydipsia). These can ultimately lead to renal failure .[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Cushing's Disease

    Tw o also demonstrated personality changes, hypertension and hypokalemia, the last of these being rarely reported in patients with Cushing's disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Nine days postpartum, the patient was still unable to move in her bed, complained of strong thirst, and had hypotonic polyuria (8,900 mL/day).[academic.oup.com] Ectopic ACTH secretion was initially suspected on the basis of very high cortisoluria and ACTH concentrations, severe hypokalemia, a lung hypermetabolic lesion and a normal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Somatostatinoma- and aldosteronoma-induced hypokalemia can cause diabetes, at least in part, by inhibiting insulin secretion.[care.diabetesjournals.org] This is because both disorders cause polyuria , or excessive urine output.[courses.washington.edu] The patient was admitted due to polyuria and weight loss in the past few days. The initial blood glucose level was 1167mg/dL.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
