Excessive Urination (Definition)

Excessive urination may bring confusion in its possible meaning for peeing too often in its frequency or too much in total daily urine volume. By AUA, peeing >8 times in 24 hrs is urinary frequency, though I do not agree to. Peeing often may be related with much urine excretion resulting from over drinking, poor renal ...Read more

What could have given me polyuria?

What could have given me polyuria?

See below: Polyuria is due to passing large amounts of dilute urine, drinking excess water, or high blood sugar can cause it, and some condition of the kidney called diabetes insipidus can also cause it. Consult your doctor.

What exactly is nocturnal polyuria?

Salt, swelling: I would worry about fluid accumulation during the day in the legs due to excess sodium intake and vascular insufficiency. During the day the venus blood has to fight gravity to get to the heart and so it takes more pressure to return and the water leaks out of the legs into the tissues. At night, no gravity, more return of blood to the heart with greater delivery to the kidneys-more urine output.

Why does hypertension cause polyuria?

Ployuria and high BP: The most common cause of polyuria (p) is uncontrolled diabetes. Other causes are diabetes insipidus either central or nephrogenic. I suspect that the person with hypertension (h) and p is taking a diuretic agent which causes one to excrete a lot of urine to control h. If the person you are referring to takes diuretics, that could be the cause of p. If not, the person should see a physician.

hii what cause a severe polyuria after CABG

Polyuria: Did they put you on a diuretic? such as furosemide (lasix) or Bumex? Sometimes with a CABG they need to use IV fluids and then get the fluid off.
It might be that your heart with the better circulation is working better. I don't think it is anything to be worried about urgently. I would follow up with your cardiologist soon.

What are the symptoms of pcos and hypercalcemia?

What are the symptoms of pcos and hypercalcemia?

Odd question: These two conditions are not related in any way that I can see. PCOS is a complex syndrome with irregular menses, abdomen obesity, insulin resistance, hirsutism, excess androgens. Hypercalcemia is often asymptomatic, but there can be kidney stones, osteopenia, bone pain. See your doctor.

Do polyuria and polydipsia automatically make someone diabetic?

Do polyuria and polydipsia automatically make someone diabetic?

No.: Polyuria is the production of large amounts of dilute urine & polydipsia is elevated fluid intake; usually due to fluid losses from polyuria. These are just symptoms of a disorder & several different disease processes can cause this, with diabetes a common & important one. Diabetes is diagnosed by testing blood sugar levels. Other more rare causes are diabetes insipidus & psychogenic polydipsia.

What to do about pcos and hypercalcemia, which is causing my symptoms?

What to do about pcos and hypercalcemia, which is causing my symptoms?

See endocrinologist: Hi. An endocrinologist can help you with both conditions. We can't tell you which one (if either) is causing your symptoms because we have no idea what your symptoms are. But since an endocrinologist can help you with both conditions, she/he may be able to tell you what's causing your symptoms. Good luck, and don't break a bone or get a kidney stone!

How does hypercalcemia cause flaccid paralysis? Not described in my med books.

How does hypercalcemia cause flaccid paralysis? Not described in my med books.

Hyperpolarization: Highly elevated ionized calcium can lead to a variety of symptoms, including dehydration, polyuria/polydipsia, confusion, constipation and sometimes pancreatitis. Asthenia and weakness are common and can progress to a flaccid paralysis. Cardiovascular effects include shortened qt, av block, and brady or tachydysrhythmias. Muscular effects are related to hyperpolarization caused by high calcium.

Could amlodipine 5 mg and hydrochlorothiazide cause hypercalcemia in combination?

Could amlodipine 5 mg and hydrochlorothiazide cause hypercalcemia in combination?

Yes: Hydrochlorthiazide can cause hypercalcemia. Amlodipine does not cause hypercalcemia. Hypercalcemia caused by hydrochlorthiazide should improve in 2 weeks after stopping the hydrocholthiazide- if it does not it may be indicate there could be an underlying condition for the high calcium and overactive parathyroid gland is a possible consideration if that is the case.

Could the dehydration from polyuria in diabetes also cause a 'percieved' hyperproteinemai?

Could the dehydration from polyuria in diabetes also cause a 'percieved' hyperproteinemai?

Depends: Hi. Hyperglycemia causes progressively worse dehydration the higher the blood glucose (and more prolonged the high glucose). Hyperglycemia & dehydration SHOULD BE TREATED! Severe dehydration can cause impaired kidney function independent of diabetic kidney disease, and impaired kidney function can cause elevations in prolactin. Circuitous answer! Treat your diabetes and dehydration!

Can amlodipine 5 mg and hydrochlorothiazide cause hypercalcemia in combination? Need expert opinions!

Can amlodipine 5 mg and hydrochlorothiazide cause hypercalcemia in combination? Need expert opinions!

Yes: It's not the amlodipine. HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide) reduces urinary calcium excretion and can cause hypercalcemia in susceptible individuals whether given alone or in combination with another drug.

What could cause hypekalemia, hypercalcemia, low vit d, low vit b, leukocytosis, thrombocytosis, neutrophilia?

What could cause hypekalemia, hypercalcemia, low vit d, low vit b, leukocytosis, thrombocytosis, neutrophilia?

No single cause: You have at least two serious health problems. An evidence-based physician needs to sort these out, starting with a decent history and physical with particular attention to your diet and paying attention to the actual lab values. Nobody here can do anything more than this.

Fatigue yes, wt loss?: It is not unusual to have extreme fatigue due to Hyperparathyroidism and hypercalcemia. But it is not hard to loose weight Actually patients with Hyperparathyroidism loose weight as they have no appetite most of the time

I know that hypercalcemia is calcium deficiency. Wondering what are the symptoms and why does the body get these symptoms?

I know that hypercalcemia is calcium deficiency. Wondering what are the symptoms and why does the body get these symptoms?

Too much calcium: Hypocalcemia is too low a calcium and hypercalcemia is to high a calcium on lab tests. Symptoms of hypercalcemia are abdominal pain, constipation, kidney stones, nausea, vomiting, excessive urination and confusion. Symptoms of low calcium are cramps, tingling around the mouth, muscular irritability. The symptoms are related to calcium's key role in muscular contractions and function.

Can hypercalcemia be caused because the body is trying to protect you from negative effects of mild/severe acidosis (metabolic acidosis, perhaps)?

Can hypercalcemia be caused because the body is trying to protect you from negative effects of mild/severe acidosis (metabolic acidosis, perhaps)?

Hypercalcemia: The answer to your question is, unfortunately, "no". Hypercalcemia (h) due to hyperparathyroidism is seen with a metabolic acidosis, it is not a defense against acidosis. H is usually not caused by bengin causes. If you, or someone you know, has h, see a endocrinolgoist as soon as possible. Goo luck.

What are the health risks of the condition hypercalcemia?

What are the health risks of the condition hypercalcemia?

High calcium risks: Hypercalcemia (h) can lead to: excessive thirst, excessive urination, nausea, abdominal pain, decreased appetite, constipation, vomiting, bone pain, fractures, mental confusion, kidney stones, stomach ulcers. There are no benign causes of h. See a physician for a diagnosis and a treatment plan if you have h. Height loss bowed shoulders curvature of the spine.

How do hypercalcemia and hypercalcemia of malignancy differ?

Definition: Hypercalcemia refers to high calcium levels in the blood. It can occur from multiple reasons including increased intake, medications like hctz, (hydrochlorothiazide) parathyroid hormone excess, cancers. When it happens from cancers, it is called "hypercalcemia of malignancy".

Frequent Urination (Definition)

If the number going to pee makes a person feel inconvenient for daily living, it is denoted as urinary frequency or frequent urination, which should be individualized to reflect the function of bladder storage and emptying, urine excretion, and fluid consumption, although AUA defined it as peeing more than 8 times in ...Read more
