Our #residents got to learn about #syncope & #adrenalinsufficiency today from Rising Chief @LizzyHastie, Chief @photon_ick, & Endo-enthusiast @tsantoscavaiola!!

Check out some highlights below we wanted to make sure we shared with our #MedEd peeps on #MedTwitter!! Image
Don’t forget about adrenal insufficiency!! For patients with things like #syncope or #hypotension, it’s easy to forget about cortisol as a cause! While things like dehydration, infection, & other things may be more common overall… AI is #treatable, so make sure you catch it!!
Primary AI = #adrenal glands themselves are the problem. This means #cortisol AND #aldosterone will be low, while #ACTH AND #Renin will be very elevated in attempt to remedy this! Image

Some nice learning tips from a case report on #AdrenalInsufficiency

I wish all articles had them!

1. It is important to include primary adrenal insufficiency in the differential diagnosis for significant hyponatraemia even with the absence of hyperkalaemia.
2. Hypo-osmolar hyponatraemia with urine osmolality greater than serum osmolality and urinary sodium excretion >20 mmol/L, typically seen in syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone (SIADH), can also be seen in adrenal insufficiency, due to increased vasopressin secretion.
3. Ketonuria is seen in patients with hyponatraemia secondary to adrenal insufficiency, not SIADH. The urine ketone test is an easy point-of-care test to differentiate between these two causes of hyponatraemia.
