Week 4: Alterations in Renal Function

Discussion Part One

This week’s graded topics relate to the following Course Outcomes (COs).

1 Analyze pathophysiologic mechanisms associated with selected disease states. (PO 1)

2 Differentiate the epidemiology, etiology, developmental considerations, pathogenesis, and clinical and laboratory manifestations of specific disease processes. (PO 1)

3 Examine the way in which homeostatic, adaptive, and compensatory physiological mechanisms can be supported and/or altered through specific therapeutic interventions. (PO 1, 7)

4 Distinguish risk factors associated with selected disease states. (PO 1)

5 Describe outcomes of disruptive or alterations in specific physiologic processes. (PO 1)

6 Distinguish risk factors associated with selected disease states. (PO 1)

7 Explore age-specific and developmental alterations in physiologic and disease states. (PO 1)

Mrs. Orndorf is a 28-year-old woman married for 3 years who has just returned from an outdoor camping trip with her husband, with symptoms of dysuria with a burning sensation, urgency to urinate, and frequent urination. She said, “I have had similar symptoms three times over the last 2 years. Pubic and low back discomfort awoke me two nights ago and that is why I am here.” On physical examination, her temperature was 98.6° F, blood pressure was 114/64 mm Hg, pulse was 68 beats per minute, and the respiratory rate was 12 breaths per minute. Other than a tender abdominal pelvic area, the examination was unremarkable.

• What is your list of differential diagnoses in this case and explain how each of these fits with the case patient as described above. Be sure to list at least four (4) pertinent differential diagnoses. Indicate which of these you would select as the most likely diagnosis and explain why.

• According to the first item in your differential, what are the risk factors for this disorder?

• What are some treatments for this disorder?

5 Describe outcomes of disruptive or alterations in specific physiologic processes. (PO 1)

6 Distinguish risk factors associated with selected disease states. (PO 1)

7 Explore age-specific and developmental alterations in physiologic and disease states. (PO 1, 4)

A 56-year-old female comes into the clinic complaining of intermittent severe pain that radiates from the flank to the groin and sometimes to the inner thigh. Upon further questioning she tell you that she has an urge to always go to the restroom and that she sometime sweats and feels nauseous. A urinalysis provides traces of blood, a few white blood cells and no bacteria.

• What is your differential diagnosis? Discuss in detail the pathophysiology of each item in your differential and how it might fit in describing this case.

• The x-ray comes back and there is nothing abnormal except a slightly dilated ureter. Does this change your differential or narrow it?

• How would you treat the pain in this case?

Discussion Part Three

2 Differentiate the epidemiology, etiology, developmental considerations, pathogenesis, and clinical and laboratory manifestations of specific disease processes. (PO 1)

3 Examine the way in which homeostatic, adaptive, and compensatory physiological mechanisms can be supported and/or altered through specific therapeutic interventions. (PO 1, 7)

4 Distinguish risk factors associated with selected disease states. (PO 1)

5 Describe outcomes of disruptive or alterations in specific physiologic processes. (PO 1)

6 Distinguish risk factors associated with selected disease states. (PO 1)

7 Explore age-specific and developmental alterations in physiologic and disease states. (PO 1, 4)

A 60-year-old patient comes into your office with a history of hypertension and a myocardial infarction 13 years ago. You notice that both of her ankles are swollen and that her skin seems shiny. She first noticed her ankle swelling 9 months ago and it has gotten progressively worse. She has a smell of ammonia on her. She also has a 2 year history of diabetes.

• What are at least five systemic effects of chronic kidney disease?

• How would you modify the diet and what is the rationale to the changes of the diet that you make?
