506 Possible Causes for Hypomagnesemia, Hypotension, Magnesium Deficiency, Slurred Speech

  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication

    Magnesium deficiency in alcoholism . Alcoholism (NY) 1986 ; 10: 590 –4. 6. Kalbfleisch JM, Lindeman RD, Ginn HE, Smith WO. .[nejm.org] Behavioral changes such as euphoria and aggressiveness, as well as slurred speech, are seen in milder intoxications, which are estimated to occur at blood ethanol concentrations[symptoma.com] BACKGROUND: Persons with chronic alcoholism frequently have hypocalcemia, hypomagnesemia, and osteoporosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Take the patient’s blood pressure to ascertain if there are any orthostatic changes, hypotension, or tachycardia.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Short Bowel Syndrome

    Patients with massive intestinal resection require monitoring and supplementation in order to prevent magnesium and copper deficiencies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] D-lactate can be absorbed systemically, and increased serum levels are associated with central nervous system toxicity manifested by confusion, ataxia, and slurred speech.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chondrocalcinosis is usually sporadic but has also been associated with a variety of metabolic diseases including hypomagnesemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Because of B12 and iron loss, anemia can manifest as pale skin and tachycardia, while hypotension is a frequent finding on physical examination due to extensive volume depletion[symptoma.com]

  • Diarrhea

    The bacteria produce a toxin that, in addition to vomiting and diarrhea, can cause muscle weakness, drooping eyelids, blurred vision, double vision, slurred speech, dry mouth[labtestsonline.org] Attention should be paid to replacing any mineral and vitamin deficiencies, especially calcium, potassium, magnesium and zinc.[patients.gi.org] Hypomagnesemia after prolonged diarrhea can cause tetany.[merckmanuals.com] More commonly known types of autonomic neuropathy include erectile dysfunction and orthostatic (or postural) hypotension, the feeling of light-headedness or dizziness you[diabetesforecast.org]

  • Alcohol Withdrawal Delirium

    Delirium tremens is the most severe form of withdrawal and manifests with deep confusion, slurred speech, uninhibited behavior, staggering gait, delusions, vivid hallucinations[neuro-la-cote.info] Hirschfelder 1 first described clinical symptoms in man resulting from a deficiency of magnesium in 1934.[doi.org] […] suggest that patients in severe alcohol withdrawal are at risk for prolonged QT which may be at least partially a result of the associated electrolyte abnormality such as hypomagnesemia[emergencymedicinecases.com] They lower the severity but not the incidence of delirium. [54], [55], [56] They are also associated with prolonged QT interval and hypotension.[ijnpnd.com]

  • Hypokalemia

    Hypokalemia if refractory to intravenous potassium supplementation, concomitant magnesium deficiency should be suspected and treated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Hypophosphatemia, hypomagnesemia, and hypokalemia occur in patients receiving parenteral nutrition (PN), mainly when the body's stores are depleted due to fasting[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Intravenous fluid boluses of normal saline (10.5 L in about 24 h) and vasopressors were started with rapid correction of hypotension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other causes include: Diarrhea Dietary deficiency Excessive sweating Magnesium deficiency (causes overexcretion of fluid) Signs and Symptoms of Hypokalemia Symptoms of deficiency[healthcommunities.com]

  • Hypermagnesemia

    Magnesium replacement in enteral or parenteral feeding and magnesium deficiency is addressed often.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hypomagnesemia was seen in patients with various diseases such as cancer, hepatic cirrhosis, cerebrovascular disease, and generally poor condition.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hypotension improved with intravenous calcium and peritoneal dialysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Magnesium (Mg) plays an important role in metabolic processes and its deficiency or excess could adversely affect metabolism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • VIPoma

    Analysis showed: impaired fasting glucose (159 mg/dl), hypokalaemia (2.6 mEq/l), metabolic “acidosis” (pH 7.34, serum bicarbonate 15.1 mmol/l), hypophosphatemia (1 mg/dl), hypomagnesemia[endocrine-abstracts.org] Case Description: We present a 13-year-old girl with a distal pancreatic VIPoma diagnosed on her second hospital presentation who became severely hypotensive on anaesthetic[karger.com] Flushing and hypercalcemia are frequent but tetany can occur which may be due to hypomagnesemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Generalized vasodilation with systemic venous and arterial hypotension gave away to vasoconstriction with severe venous and arterial hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Magnesium deficiency in alcohol addiction and withdrawal [Review].[clinchem.aaccjnls.org] These may include inappropriate behavior, unstable moods, impaired judgment, slurred speech, impaired attention or memory, and poor coordination.[mayoclinic.org] Hematologic Anemia Leukocytosis or leukopenia Thrombocytopenia Increased serum globulin levels Metabolic Elevated blood ammonia level Hyperglycemia Respiratory alkalosis Hypomagnesemia[clevelandclinicmeded.com] Attention has been drawn to recent literature in which the importance of vascular insufficiency, hypotension and disturbance of fluid and electrolyte balance in the occurrence[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Loop Diuretic

    Magnesium deficiency: pathophysiologic and clinical overview. Am J Kidney Dis 24: 737–752, 1994. 2. Dorup I. Magnesium and potassium deficiency.[health.cvs.com] Hypokalemia Hypomagnesemia Hyponatremia What is the normal lab range for Sodium? What is the normal lab range for Magnesium? What is the normal lab range for Potassium?[quizlet.com] […] serum PTH was appropriately twofold greater than in those not taking hypotensive medication.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In some patients this can lead to hypocalcemia and hypomagnesemia.[pathwaymedicine.org]

  • Hyponatremia

    The former is caused by diuretic agents, which enhance sodium excretion, often with concomitant potassium/magnesium losses.[content.onlinejacc.org] On admission, the patient was agitated and had slurred speech. Treatment with hypertonic saline lead to full recovery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Records were reviewed for hyponatremia, hypocalcemia, hypomagnesemia, BUN clearance, osmolality shifts, and blood pressure control in the first 24 h post-transplant.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After several weeks of suffering from gastroenteritis with vomiting, she presented with disturbance of consciousness, hypotension, dehydration, and severe hyponatremia (108[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
