603 Possible Causes for Increased Basal Metabolic Rate

  • Third Trimester Pregnancy

    Abstract We determined unconjugated and total estriol concentrations in serum during the third trimester in 34 normal gestations. Data were obtained weekly for 13 women for as long as nine weeks; 21 others were studied daily for up to 15 days. No correlation between birth weight and either estriol fraction was[…][]

  • Graves Disease

    Growth in height may be enhanced by hypermetabolism, and bone age may be advanced. [3] Puberty may be affected.[] The hypermetabolic state is characterized by fast pulse/heartbeat, palpitations, profuse sweating, high blood pressure, irritability, fatigue, weight loss, heat intolerance[] Hypermetabolism usually leads to weight loss with increased appetite. Heat intolerance is often subtle. Muscle wasting is present, with decreased muscle strength.[]

  • 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.[] The signs and symptoms of thyroid hormone exposure to peripheral tissues reflect a hypermetabolic state.[] . • T3 increases oxygen consumption, basal metabolic rate, and heat production by stimulation of Na /K ATPase in various tissues 10.[]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    Cardiovasc Interv Ther. 2015 Jul;30(3):260-5. doi: 10.1007/s12928-014-0273-5. Epub 2014 Jun 6. Author information 1 Department of Cardiology, Tokyo Metropolitan Hiroo Hospital, Tokyo, Japan, Abstract The patient was an 80-year-old man with low cardiac output syndrome associated with triple-vessel[…][]

  • Thyrotoxic Heart Disease

    […] resorption, generalized lymphadenopathy Ocular changes : wide staring gaze and lid lag due to sympathetic overstimulation of levator palpebrae superioris Thyrotoxicosis : hypermetabolic[] It is characterised by features of a hypermetabolic state, including confusion, agitation, psychosis, hyperthermia and tachycardia.[]

  • Chronic Myeloid Leukemia

    Initial symptoms are often nonspecific and due to anaemia or hypermetabolism. Weakness, weight loss and fatigue are common.[] Some patients with CML have low-grade fever and excessive sweating related to hypermetabolism.[] The enlarged spleen may also be associated with a hypermetabolic state, fever, weight loss, and chronic fatigue.[]

  • 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[] […] which can be persistent or paroxysmal • Headache due to cerebral blood flow affectation from catecholamine level changes in the circulation, more occipital than temporal • Hypermetabolism[] Rarely, tumors produce epinephrine exclusively; in some cases, the clinical picture is dominated by signs of beta-receptor stimulation, such as tachycardia and hypermetabolism[]

  • Hashitoxicosis

    AIM: To investigate hashitoxicosis outcome in 14 children with persistent absence of thyrotropin receptor autoantibodies who were followed for 1.3-8.8 years (mean 3.5 2.5). Due to a more severe presentation, 4 patients required methimazole (subgroup A1), whilst in the remaining 10 cas es (subgroup A2) no treatment[…][]

  • Chronic Phase of Chronic Myeloid Leukemia

    Acute compartment syndrome is an orthopedic emergency requiring urgent fasciotomy to prevent irreversible damage. In hematological malignancies, acute compartment syndrome caused by severe soft tissue bleeding is extremely rare. We present a patient with chronic-phase chronic myeloid leukemia who had acute[…][]

  • Thyroid Crisis

    Circulatory collapse and dehydration under excessive hypermetabolic state presumably suppressed the source of energy and oxygen for muscle cells, leading to cellular damage[] Thyroid crisis, also known as thyroid storm, is a rare complication of thyrotoxicosis that results in a hypermetabolic and hyperadrenergic state.[] Similarly, severe burn injury also has a hypermetabolic response as part of its presentation.[]
