29 Possible Causes for Postprandial Dyspnea

  • Diaphragmatic Hernia

    In our case, the stomach alone was involved; hence, the symptoms were suggestive of vague postprandial epigastric distress [11] .[] The main life-threatening complications are acute dyspnea caused by compression atelectasis, mediastinal shift, and strangulation and gangrene of the herniated viscera [6][]

  • Overeating

    Emotional eating (i.e., overeating in response to negative affect) is a commonly accepted explanation for eating behaviors that are not in line with personal eating-norms. However, the empirical evidence for a causal link between self-reported emotional eating and overeating is mixed. The present study tested an[…][]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Children with systemic onset Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (SOJIA) are known to develop myocarditis and congestive heart failure as a complication of disease process infrequently. Cardiac involvement causing congestive heart failure as a presenting manifestation in SOJIA is rarely described in the literature. The[…][]

  • Esophageal Achalasia

    Achalasia is rare motor disorder of esophageal smooth muscle. It has been linked to malnutrition during pregnancy leading to maternal and fetal mortality. We report a case of achalasia with intrauterine fetal death who succeeded in following pregnancy with good fetal and maternal outcome after operative treatment.[…][]

  • Delayed Gastric Emptying

    The case of an infant with Sandifer syndrome is reported. Real-time ultrasonography showed delayed gastric emptying time, which returned to normal when the patient was asymptomatic. The importance of gastric motility investigations in Sandifer syndrome is stressed since delayed gastric emptying could play a role in[…][]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Bodybuilders use anabolic-androgenic steroids to increase muscle mass, but abuse of these hormones has been related to cardiomyopathy in the past. A 60-year-old Caucasian male bodybuilder with medical history of male hypogonadism and on testosterone replacement therapy, allegedly preparing for a weightlifting[…][]

  • Morbid Obesity

    Pregnancy outcomes and infant growth and development are influenced by various prenatal and postnatal factors. Gestational weight gain (GWG) is an important indicator of pregnancy management and outcomes. Information about the interaction between prenatal obesity and depression on GWG among low-income women is[…][]

  • Food Allergy

    Previous genetic studies of food allergy (FA) have mainly focused on inherited genotypic effects. The role of parental genotypic effects remains largely unexplored. Leveraging existing genome-wide association study (GWAS) data generated from the Chicago Food Allergy Study, we examined maternal genotypic and[…][]

  • Tracheoesophageal Fistula

    Malignant tracheoesophageal fistula (MTEF) is a devastating complication of esophageal cancer, lung cancer or other carcinoma with a shorter life-span and poor life quality. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of airway stent insertion on MTEF patients. A total of 63 MTEF patients were included, 12[…][]

  • Adult Primary Lateral Sclerosis

    Postprandial dyspnea and orthopnea are attributable to pressure against the diaphragm from the abdominal contents. 33 Physical signs of respiratory compromise include tachypnea[] Dyspnea with mild exertion or in association with meals is suggestive of significant respiratory muscle weakness.[] […] patients may be asymptomatic despite respiratory muscle weakness demonstra ble on pulmonary function testing. 31 Symptoms may be mitigated by reduced activity level. 32 Dyspnea[]
