D) Elevated lactic
Lactic acid is often elevated in ischemia. Lactic acidosis often develops when areas of the body are not receiving adequate oxygenation. Metabolic acidosis is very common with ischemic colitis
Leukocytosis would more likely be seen before leukopenia. WBC are often >15,000. Abdomen pain is often severe. Ischemic colitis is emergent as it indicates that there is decreased blood supply to colon. Decreased blood flow can lead to tissue death and necrosis. #ischemia #lacticacidosis #nursingschool #nursingstudent #nursingachool #lpnstudent #futurenursepractitioner #hospitalistlife #gastro #nursingschool #nursesofinstagram #nclexreview #nclexstudying #nclexpn #nclexrn #nclexready #medmadeez #colon #lababnormalities #medicalschool #medicalstudent #cme #nurseselfie #nursingfriendly #nursingstudentstruggles #nursingnclex

A) low magnesium, low platelets
Alcoholics often have low magnesium due to "renal wasting" and also "GI losses" specifically from vomiting & diarrhea. (1). Alcohol also actually "slows the production of platelets". There are also other nutritional deficiencies that add to this issue as well. (2)
