1,568 Possible Causes for Patient Appears Chronically Ill, Potassium Decreased, Starvation Ketosis

  • Anorexia Nervosa

    Consequently, there may be marked electrolyte derangement (decreases in serum potassium, phosphate, and magnesium levels) and expansion of the extracellular fluid compartment[academic.oup.com] ) further magnifies the impact of the malnutrition on the brain, owing to it being in a starvation-illness mode.[emedicine.medscape.com] […] testosterone Gastrointestinal problems, such as constipation, bloating or nausea Electrolyte abnormalities, such as low blood potassium, sodium and chloride Kidney problems[mayoclinic.org]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Insulin therapy, correction of acidosis, and volume expansion decrease serum potassium concentration.[web.archive.org] In addition, although alcoholic ketoacidosis can result in profound acidosis, the serum bicarbonate concentration in starvation ketosis is usually not 4 ).[web.archive.org] Potassium Despite total-body potassium depletion, mild-to-moderate hyperkalemia is common in patients with hyperglycemic crises.[web.archive.org]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Ethanol also causes structural abnormalities in the liver mitochondria which leads to ketosis superimposed by starvation, chronic malnutrition [ 13, 14 ].[pubs.sciepub.com]

  • Vomiting of Pregnancy

    ketosis with ketonuria, elevated specific gravity and BUN, and a hypochloremic hypokalemic metabolic alkalosis. 1,3,15 It is recommended to replete with thiamine if significant[emdocs.net] […] ondansetron, and metoclopramide. 13-14 In more severe cases, women may develop hyperemesis gravidarum that may result in dehydration ( 5% weight loss), orthostatic hypotension, starvation[emdocs.net]

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease Type 1

    Performing surgery on patients with Crohn's disease is a true challenge due to the elevated risk of complications related to the chronic proinflammatory response. Stenosis is the leading cause of intestinal resection in these patients. The authors present the case of a 50-year-old woman with inflammatory stenosis[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Celiac Disease

    Celiac disease, a chronic disorder with a characteristic small intestinal mucosal lesion associated with nutrient malabsorption, may be present in up to 1% of adults. Celiac disease (also known as celiac sprue, gluten-sensitive enteropathy, and nontropical sprue) is defined by a characteristic but nonspecific small[…][web.archive.org]

  • Amebiasis

    Whether risk of invasive amebiasis due to Entamoeba histolytica is higher among human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected persons than uninfected persons remains unclear, although intestinal colonization by Entamoeba dispar is common among men who have sex with men. Our objective was to determine the prevalence[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
