Endocrine Disorders & Fasciculations

Postby misterjuanperalta on September 29th, 2015, 8:01 am

In this study, out of the 37 patients who were diagnosed with endocrine myopathies, thyroid dysfunction was the most common cause (17 cases), followed by vitamin D deficiency in (9) nine, adrenal dysfunction in (6) six, parathyroid dysfunction in (3) three, and pituitary dysfunction in (2) two. Some patients had atypical presentation (E.G, tongue fasciculations in (1) one). Following the treatment regimen which was specific for a given myopathy, 26 patients recovered fully. In conclusion, we found varied clinical presentations of endocrine myopathies. All the patients with neuromuscular complaints should be investigated for endocrine causes because a significant number of them recovers fully with specific treatment.

Interesting. Just so happens today my neurologist referred me to an endocrinologist. He said this is likely either autoimmune or some metabolic dysfunction . I may show this to the endocrinologist. Thanks for sharing.
