  • Diabetic Amyotrophy

    Laboratory evaluation of the hyponatremia suggested the syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patellar deep tendon reflexes (DTRs) and ankle DTRs are absent bilaterally. Biceps and triceps DTRs are each 2 bilaterally.[mdedge.com] The hyponatremia resolved spontaneously with improvement in body weight and the amyotrophy resolved after four to six months.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    Causes of Hyponatremia Hyponatremia is caused by conditions such as water retention and renal failure that result in a low sodium level in the blood.[healthcommunities.com] .  Irritability  Tremors  Muscle cramps  Hyperactive deep tendon reflexesSlow shallow respiration  Coma  seizures 44.[slideshare.net] HR if severe, blood clots are more likely, assess for slowed or impaired blood flow, sever muscle weakness, decreased deep tendon reflexes, may be confused or lethargic,[quizlet.com]

  • Ataxia

    Upper motor neuron signs in the legs such as equivocal or extensor plantar responses, brisk deep tendon reflexes and unsustained ankle clonus are sometimes present.[orpha.net] Deep tendon reflexes are retained, and progression is very slow, particularly in Arcadians.[emedicine.medscape.com] Ataxia may improve over time, but in the fifth to sixth decade of life a slow deterioration of walking is noted.[orpha.net]
