Endocrine system conditions

  1. 1. ENDOCRINE SYSTEM CONDITIONS  HYPERCALCEMIA  POLYDIPSIA
  2. 2. “HYPERCALC-EMIA” Condition of excessive calcium in the blood Develops when body fails to balance intake of calcium Can cause disruptions in muscle contraction, hormone levels and brain functioning Prone to post-menopausal women due to their hyperactive parathyroid gland Lung/breast cancer patients, tuberculosis/sarcoidosis patients Taking calcium supplements can also cause this condition Not drinking enough water can cause mild cases of hypercalcemia Little to no symptoms
  3. 3. “POLY-DIPSIA” Non-medical condition where patient displays excessive thirst Not a disease but evidence of a disease state A symptom of anticholinergic poisoing Found in diabetic patient’s (initial symptom), or those who fail to take their anti-diabetic meds Can be caused by a change in osmolality of the extracellular fluids of body, hypokalemia (decreased blood volume), and other conditions that create a water deficit, like osmotic diuresis
