(5) The etiology for amputation is uncertain, but may involve poor perfusion due to osmotic diuresis and lower blood pressure in compromised patients.
In conclusion, in healthy volunteers with artificially induced SIADH, empagliflozin increased volume excretion due to osmotic diuresis. Due to the short treatment duration, serum sodium levels remained unchanged.
One strategy to diminish the viscosity effect of the isoosmotic dimers is by enhancing tubular flow with a concomitant osmotic diuresis, as occurred naturally with the LOCM [36, 61].
Recovery from acute renal failure, postobstructive diuresis, and osmotic diuresis can all lead to renal potassium loss.
The causes are multiple and include decreased mineral intake due to anorexia and vomiting, and excessive and inappropriate urinary losses due to a combination of osmotic diuresis, metabolic acidosis, and organic aciduria.
Osmotic diuresis, with its resultant loss of water and electrolytes, may influence hydration and is therefore a likely cause of the slower rate of NMC in diabetic patients.
The hyperosmolarity resulting from increasing hyperglycemia causes osmotic diuresis when the glomerular threshold for glucose (which is usually 180 mg/dL, but may vary with age) is exceeded.
David Lauler explained, "In patients with acute and chronic alcohol abuse, magnesium depletion occurs by osmotic diuresis induced by excreted alcohol molecules, that remove magnesium ions as part of the osmotic diuresis.
showed that dapagliflozin exhibited a glucose induced osmotic diuresis with a small increase in BUN, and small dose dependent increase in hematocrit levels.
Increased UGE caused by SGLT-2 inhibitors is associated with osmotic diuresis as a result of a transient increase in urinary volume.
Genital mycotic infections, urinary tract infections, and those related to osmotic diuresis were among the adverse events associated with canagliflozin, which was generally well tolerated, he said.
Reminder: Do not give dextrose solutions (except for maintenance fluids in children)--they may cause an osmotic diuresis and confuse adequacy of resuscitation assessment.
