What Causes Hypernatremia?

Mon, 30 Oct 2017 00:46:12 +0100

Discussion Hypernatremia is a serum sodium of > 150 mEq/L. Basic causes are too much sodium or too little free water. If body weight is normal or increased, there is an increase in total body sodium without an appropriate increase in total body water. Normally when the serum sodium is increased there is transient hypertonicity of the plasma which causes the thirst center to be stimulated and antidiuretic hormone (ADH) to be released. The thirst center tells the person to drink more water and ADH causes the kidney to retain free water. This normally will allow the plasma tonicity to go back to normal. Treatment is by treating the underlying cause and appropriate free water administration. If the body weight is decreased, there is a lower amount of free water with a relative increase ...

Central diabetes insipidus and hyperglycemic hyperosmolar state following accidental carbon monoxide poisoning - Ul Abideen Z, Mahmud SN, Rasheed A, Farooq Qasim Y, Ali F.

Carbon monoxide poisoning is common and carries significant morbidity and mortality. The nervous system, particularly the brain, is frequently affected by it, owing to its high metabolic activity and oxygen requirements. Carbon monoxide damages the nervous... (Source: SafetyLit)

State-of-the-art review of lithium poisoning: almost a must-read

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 02:50:23 +0100

4 out of 5 stars Lithium Poisoning: State of the Art.  Baird-Gunning J et al. J Intensive Care Med 2016 Aug 11 [Epub ahead of print] Abstract This is a very good paper, the best comprehensive review I can remember reading on lithium. It is up to date, with 78 references as recent as 2015. A major reason I liked it so much is that the authors are quire frank about how much we don’t know, and resist giving, for instance, mandates about when to start hemodialysis based on lithium levels. This is a temptation that the authors of the recent ExTRIP review  succumbed to. Interestingly, the two papers share an author (Sophie Gosselin). However, I think the authors missed — or at least failed to emphasize — a key point. With lithium poisoning, as with all toxicology cases, the key to ...

Full bladder wakes 2 in 3 women at night

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 18:35:51 +0100

Getting up at night to use the bathroom is often thought of as a problem mainly for older men. Not so—two in three women over age 40 wake up at least once each night because of a full bladder. And nearly half of them make two or more nighttime trips to the bathroom. That’s the upshot from a survey of more than 2,000 northern California women ages 40 years and older. They were asked questions related to possible reasons for nocturia, the medical term for getting up to urinate twice or more per night. Factors that increased the likelihood that a woman woke at night to urinate included older age, having had a hysterectomy, having hot flashes, and using vaginal estrogen. The results are to be published in the January issue of the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology. Until now, many cli...

Determined to get back in the game

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 19:28:52 +0100

Seventeen-year-old Kyle Arieta lives for football, but as his mother is quick to note, football doesn’t define him. Instead, she points to a quiet determination that he’s learned from his years on the playing field. It’s an attitude of pushing through and moving beyond that’s served him well in the game, and which drove him to get back on his feet after the brain tumor. When the southeastern Massachusetts native went to bed one night last May, he’d been having headaches off and on for a while. They weren’t all that bad, more like a mild cold that wouldn’t go away. That next morning, though, it was clear that the headaches had been a sign of something more. Kyle awoke in head-splitting pain—and nearly blind. By the end of the day, he was at Boston...

Genetic testing in suspected FCDI

Thu, 14 Nov 2013 12:00:00 +0100

Differentiating familial cranial diabetes insipidus (CDI) from primary polydipsia can be difficult especially in the early phase of cranial diabetes insipidus (CDI) when AVP secretion is declining. Srinivasan et al. report of a 3-month old boy with polydipsia and who had a family history of autosomal dominant CDI.  He was initially diagnosed with familial CDI and treated with DDAVP. However, 2 months later he developed hyponatraemia and DDAVP was stopped. Genetic analysis of the AVP gene was undertaken to establish a molecular defect and results showed that he did not have a pathogenic mutation and hence was not at significant risk of developing CDI. This case therefore highlights the importance of using robust clinical, biochemical and potentially molecular genetic criteria b...
