147 Possible Causes for Increased Basal Metabolic Rate

  • Malignant Neoplasm

    Following improvements in therapy for childhood malignancies, the striking increase in survival rate over the past 30 years has led to the increase risk of developing second malignant neoplasms (SMNs). We report a case of colorectal carcinoma as a SMN, following treatment for rhabdomyosarcoma. The patient was[…][]

  • Pheochromocytoma

    […] fat metabolism for energy (breaking down of fats for fuel) increases basal metabolic rate (burns more calories) increases thermogenesis (elevates body temperature) how you[] […] the following: increase heart rate and blood pressure increase glucose (stimulates the liver to release it stores of glucose in the blood and blocks the role of insulin) increases[]

  • Thyrotoxicosis Factitia

    An elevated free thyroxine index (ratio of T-4 to T-3), diminished thyroglobulin level with an increased basal metabolic rate are diagnostic of TF.[] ACTIONS OF THYROID HORMONE • Increases oxygen consumption • Increases carbohydrate and lipid catabolism • Stimulates protein synthesis • Increases basal metabolic rateIncreases[] . • T3 increases oxygen consumption, basal metabolic rate, and heat production by stimulation of Na /K ATPase in various tissues 10.[]

  • Thyroid Crisis

    Breathing: Tachypnea may occur for numerous reasons: increased basal metabolic rate; underlying heart failure as a complication of longstanding thyrotoxicosis (high output[] Pearls and Pitfalls Suspect thyroid storm in any patient with a history of thyroid disease (esp. thyrotoxicosis) and a hypermetabolic state.[] Thyroid storm typically presents with the signs and symptoms of a hypermetabolic state; however co-existing illnesses, patient age, and the severity of the patient may muddy[]

  • Triiodothyronine

    metabolic rate, and increased urinary excretion of hydroxyproline.[] […] and mobilization of glycogen stores, and stimulates protein synthesis, increases basal metabolic rate Absorption Oral: Well absorbed (95% in 4 hours) Excretion Urine Onset[] She exhibited clinical features of hyperthyroidism, elevated serum thyroid hormone levels accompanied by inappropriately increased secretion of TSH, mildly elevated basal[]

  • Thyroxine

    Thyroxine increases the number and activity of mitochondria in cells by binding to the cells' DNA, increasing the basal metabolic rate.[] […] active form: Increases cardiac output Increases heart rate Increases ventilation rate Increases basal metabolic rate Potentiates the effects of catecholamines (i.e. increases[] Administration of thyroid hormones, such as thyroxine, causes an increase in the rate of carbohydrate metabolism and a rise in the rate of protein synthesis and breakdown.[]

  • Dinitrophenol

    Health effects [ edit ] DNP is considered to have high acute toxicity . [4] Acute oral exposure to DNP has resulted in increased basal metabolic rate, nausea, vomiting, sweating[] […] an individual's basal metabolic rate. 3 It was soon taken off the market due to adverse effects including cataracts, liver failure, agranulocytosis, and death.[] DNP (C 6 H 4 N 2 O 5 ) first gained popularity for weight loss in the 1930s with studies showing that a daily dose of 300–400 mg for 2 weeks resulted in 36–95% increase in[]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    A 66-year-old man was admitted due to repeated syncope, and the electrocardiogram showed complete atrioventricular block (CAVB). He had moderate aortic valve stenosis (AS) with a severely calcified valve. This case indicates that if calcification spreads into the cardiac conduction system, it may cause CAVB.[…][]

  • Thyrotoxic Heart Disease

    A 29-year-old woman at 34 weeks' gestation with uncontrolled hyperthyroidism and thyrotoxic heart disease was admitted to urgency Cesarean section. After preoperative sedation and good communication, low-dose spinal anesthesia (7.5 mg 0.5 % bupivacaine) combined with epidural anesthesia (6 ml 2 % lidocaine) was[…][]

  • Medroxyprogesterone

    Relative to REE there was an increase of basal metabolic rate (BMR) in both groups after one year.[] After 12 months of evaluation, we could observe a significant increase in the DMPA group in weight (3,01 kg) and BMI, while the IUD group's only significant increase was observed[] The sub-group DMPA that gained 3 kg had increased significant weight, BMI and body surface (BS) with respiratory quotient (RQ) reduction, while the sub-group that gained 3[]
