• hypophosphatemia
  • In addition, alcohol treatment is associated with refeeding, and the stress of alcohol withdrawal may create respiratory alkalosis, which exacerbates hypophosphatemia (see above). (wikipedia.org)
  • Other rarer causes include: Certain blood cancers such as lymphoma or leukemia Hereditary causes Liver failure Tumor-induced osteomalacia Hypophosphatemia is caused by the following three mechanisms: Inadequate intake (often unmasked in refeeding after long-term low phosphate intake) Increased excretion (e.g. in hyperparathyroidism, hypophosphatemic rickets) Shift from extracellular to intracellular space. (wikipedia.org)
  • Nutrition
  • When too much food and/or liquid nutrition supplement is consumed during the initial four to seven days of refeeding this triggers synthesis of glycogen, fat and protein in cells, to the detriment of serum concentrations of potassium, magnesium and phosphorus. (wikipedia.org)
  • He later developed features of severe malnutrition, and when parenteral nutrition was given, he developed re-feeding syndrome. (biomedcentral.com)
  • This article is from Nutrition & Diabetes, volume 4.AbstractRefeeding syndrome describes the metabolic and clinical changes attributed to aggressive rehabilitation of malnourished subjects. (duhnnae.com)
  • TPN may be the only feasible option for providing nutrition to patients who do not have a functioning gastrointestinal tract or who have disorders requiring complete bowel rest, including bowel obstruction, short bowel syndrome, gastroschisis, prolonged diarrhea regardless of its cause, high-output fistula, very severe Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis, and certain pediatric GI disorders including congenital GI anomalies and necrotizing enterocolitis. (wikipedia.org)
  • risk
  • Any individual who has had negligible nutrient intake for many consecutive days and/or is metabolically stressed from a critical illness or major surgery is at risk of refeeding syndrome. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although re-feeding syndrome is a common complication in patients with any kind of nutritional support, and known to us for many years, high risk patients still need more attention and monitoring. (biomedcentral.com)
  • long
  • Re-feeding syndrome is common in patients with long-term starvation. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Long QT syndrome (LQTS) is a condition which affects repolarization of the heart after a heartbeat. (wikipedia.org)
  • Long QT syndrome may be present at birth or develop later in life. (wikipedia.org)
  • Long QT syndrome is estimated to affect 1 in 7,000 people. (wikipedia.org)
  • If there is sudden death, and doctors suspect long QT syndrome as the cause, they may recommend that the family members of the deceased get tested for the disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • the following is a list of all known genes associated with LQTS: LQT1 LQT1 is the most common type of long QT syndrome, making up about 30 to 35% of all cases. (wikipedia.org)
  • Long term survival of the transplanted mice was achieved when valine was returned to the diet gradually over a 2 week period to avoid refeeding syndrome. (wikipedia.org)
  • condition
  • The condition has many causes, but is most commonly seen when malnourished patients (especially chronic alcoholics) are given large amounts of carbohydrates, which creates a high phosphorus demand by cells, removing phosphate from the blood (refeeding syndrome). (wikipedia.org)
  • food
  • The idea was for people to gather and redistribute the food, but some could not resist eating straight away, which caused some people to get sick and vomit, (and some died) a result that fatty food can have in starved bodies known as Refeeding syndrome. (wikipedia.org)
  • common
  • A common error, repeated in multiple papers, is that "The syndrome was first described after World War II in Americans who, held by the Japanese as prisoners of war, had become malnourished during captivity and who were then released to the care of United States personnel in the Philippines. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is a relatively common cause of sudden death along with Brugada syndrome and arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia. (wikipedia.org)
  • actually
  • It is actually quite difficult to ascertain when the syndrome was first discovered and named, but it is likely the associated electrolyte disturbances were identified well before 1951, perhaps in Holland during the closing months of World War II, before Victory Day in Europe. (wikipedia.org)
