    Abstract Hyponatremia due to isolated adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) deficiency is difficult to diagnose as it is usually indistinguishable from non-endocrine syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion (SIADH).

  • Megaloblastic Anemia

    Tropical sprue is more severe than nontropical sprue (celiac disease) and can be associated with both cobalamin and folate deficiencies.[emedicine.com] Because the terminal ileum is the site of uptake of cobalamin-IF complexes, tropical sprue, inflammatory bowel disease, lymphoma, and ileal resection can lead to cobalamin[emedicine.com] Intestinal disorders that impede folate absorption include tropical sprue, nontropical sprue (celiac disease or gluten sensitivity), amyloidosis, and inflammatory bowel disease[emedicine.com]
