161 Possible Causes for Hypotonic Urine

  • Hyponatremia

    Loop diuretics interfere with the renal capacity to concentrate urine resulting in less reabsorption of free water and in the production of hypotonic urine—therefore relative[] ), as these medications interfere directly with the kidneys’ capacity to produce hypotonic urine.[] Because of this interference of loop diuretic agents with the renal capacity to concentrate urine, less free water is reabsorbed, resulting in production of hypotonic urine[]

  • Nephrogenic Diabetes Insipidus

    urine and hypokalemia.[] Definition (MSH) A genetic or acquired polyuric disorder characterized by persistent hypotonic urine and HYPOKALEMIA.[] urine due to the failure of renal tubules to respond to antidiuretic hormones, such as vasopressin, to reduce urine volume; tubular insensitivity to vasopressin can result[]

  • Psychogenic Polydipsia

    In the patients with central diabetes insipidus, the plasma arginine vasopressin level was low despite hyperosmolality, resulting in hypotonic urine.[] […] hypovolemic hyponatremia) Urine Tests 24-hour urine volume: increased Urine osmolality Sodium Urea: normal Water deprivation test: urine osmolality greater than 750 mOsm[] […] hyperosmolar hyponatremia) Salt-wasting nephropathy Nephrotic syndrome Chronic heart failure Cirrhosis Tests Reference: 3 Blood Tests Plasma osmolality Sodium normal or 135 meq/L (hypotonic[]

  • Dermatitis

    […] per day Urine osmolality – low results 300 mmol/kg Serum osmolality – normal or elevated EUC – elevated serum sodium Side note elevated serum sodium with hypotonic urine[] Diabetes Insipidus (DI) is associated with inadequate arginine vasopressin (known as antidiuretic hormone) secretion or renal response to arginine vasopressin, resulting in hypotonic[] There are two main types of diabetes insipidus, central DI and nephrogenic DI Triad Polyuria, dilute urine, and increased thirst are characteristic of DI Definitions Diabetes[]

  • Diabetes Insipidus

    urine and hypokalemia.[] Disorder characterised by polydipsia, polyuria, increased thirst, and formation of hypotonic urine.[] urine due to the failure of renal tubules to respond to antidiuretic hormones, such as vasopressin, to reduce urine volume; tubular insensitivity to vasopressin can result[]

  • Lower Urinary Tract Infection

    Although once thought to be diagnostic of chronic pyelonephritis, glitter cells are associated with dilute or hypotonic urine and may be seen in patients with lower urinary[]

  • Pregnancy

    Normal pregnancy-related physiologic changes contribute to UTIs, including dilatation of the upper collecting systems, hypotonic renal pelvises, increases in urinary tract[] […] dead space and vesicoureteral reflux, and reductions in the natural antibacterial activity in the urine and in the phagocytic activity of leukocytes at the mucosal surfaces[]

  • Hypothalamic Adipsic Hypernatraemia Syndrome

    Hence, most such patients will have a hypertonic urine (typically 800 mOsm/kg H2O) rather than the hypotonic urine necessary for a diagnosis of DI.[] In all TBI patients passing increased volumes of hypotonic urine, PTDI should be considered and the blood levels of electrolytes (especially sodium, but also potassium and[] DI is characterized by polydipsia and polyuria with voiding of diluted or hypotonic urine.[]

  • Pituicytoma

    The biochemical tests showed hypotonic urine, mild hyperprolactinemia, hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, central hypothyroidism.[] Water leaks back freely from the collecting ducts, the blood becomes hypotonic, and the patient loses the ability to produce dilute urine.[] NOT ENOUGH ANTI-DIURETIC HORMONE You'll suspect ADH deficiency when your patient is putting out a lot of urine that is hypotonic (SG Restrict water for a while, perhaps overnight[]

  • Hypernatremia

    Patients with renal concentrating defects typically excrete a large volume of hypotonic urine.[]
