12 Possible Causes for Impaired Judgement, Slowing - Theta Waves Bilaterally

  • Hypoglycemia

    Endocrine. 2016 Jul;53(1):47-57. doi: 10.1007/s12020-016-0902-0. Epub 2016 Mar 7. Abstract Spontaneous hypoglycemia is a puzzling clinical problem and an important reason for referral to endocrinologists. Several clinical conditions such as insulinomas, non-insulinoma pancreatogenous hypoglycemia syndrome, insulin[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alzheimer Disease

    It affects memory, thinking, orientation, comprehension, calculation, learning capacity, language, and judgement. Consciousness is not affected.[who.int] Progression is evident as increasing impairment of memory developing gradually into a global impairment of cognition, including orientation, language, judgement, perceptual[dx.doi.org] The impairment in cognitive function is commonly accompanied, and occasionally preceded, by deterioration in emotional control, social behaviour, or motivation.[who.int]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    ; disrupted insight, judgement, and thought; reduced processing speed; distractibility; and deficits in executive functions such as abstract reasoning, planning, problem-solving[en.wikipedia.org] […] frontal atrophy may have impaired post-retrieval evaluation processes leading the patient to falsely conclude, based on more general characteristics of the study episode,[dx.doi.org] Memory loss, the most common cognitive impairment among head-injured people, occurs in 20–79% of people with closed head trauma, depending on severity.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Hyponatremia

    Symptomatic hyponatremia is considered a rare complication of oral bowel preparation for colonoscopy. The pathophysiology underlying this phenomenon has been widely regarded as a mere sequela of excessive arginine vasopressin (AVP) release. This case describes a 61-year old woman who developed acute hyponatremic[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Stroke

    A stroke occurs if the flow of oxygen-rich blood to a portion of the brain is blocked. Without oxygen, brain cells start to die after a few minutes. Sudden bleeding in the brain also can cause a stroke if it damages brain cells. If brain cells die or are damaged because of a stroke, symptoms occur in the parts of[…][web.archive.org]

  • Dementia

    Common dementia signs and symptoms Memory loss Impaired judgement Difficulties with abstract thinking Faulty reasoning Inappropriate behavior Loss of communication skills[helpguide.org] Common dementia signs and symptoms include: Memory loss Impaired judgement Difficulties with abstract thinking Faulty reasoning Inappropriate behavior Loss of communication[helpguide.org] It affects memory, thinking, orientation, comprehension, calculation, learning capacity, language, and judgement. Consciousness is not affected.[web.archive.org]

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    Porphyria Types Urine can have this appearance during an attack or upon standing in the light. This is one of the hereditary hepatic porphyrias. Its inheritance is autosomal dominant. The deficient enzyme is porphobilinogen deaminase (PBGD), also known as hydroxymethylbilane synthase. This enzyme was formerly known[…][web.archive.org]

  • Wernicke Encephalopathy

    Neuroradiology. 2010 Jun;52(6):523-9. doi: 10.1007/s00234-009-0604-x. Epub 2009 Oct 21. Author information 1 Department of Radiology, Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA 15224, USA. giulio.zuccoli@gmail.com Abstract Wernicke encephalopathy (WE) is an acute[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Metabolic Encephalopathy

    Fumarase deficiency is a very rare inborn error of metabolism caused by decreased activity of fumarate hydratase enzyme. We describe a fumarase-deficient infant who presented with encephalopathy, metabolic crisis, psychomotor retardation, hypotonia, seizures, and facial dysmorphism. To our knowledge, this is the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Organic Brain Syndrome

    Diagnosis: EEG--- slowing of alpharhythm (( 8—13)) cycles/ second Emergence of theta (( 4 ---7 )) cycles /second Bilateral symmetrical predominant frontal delta waves (( 3[slideshare.net]
