What causes high potassium


Often, a report of high blood potassium isn't true hyperkalemia. Instead, it may be caused by the rupture of blood cells in the blood sample during or shortly after the blood draw. The ruptured cells leak their potassium into the sample. This falsely raises the amount of potassium in the blood sample, even though the potassium level in your body is actually normal. When this is suspected, a repeat blood sample is done.
The most common cause of genuinely high potassium (hyperkalemia) is related to your kidneys, such as:
- Acute kidney failure
- Chronic kidney disease
Other causes of hyperkalemia include:
- Addison's disease (adrenal failure)
- Alcoholism or heavy **** use that causes rhabdomyolysis, - a breakdown of muscle fibers that results in the release of -- potassium into the bloodstream
- Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors
- Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs)
- Destruction of red blood cells due to severe injury or burns
- Excessive use of potassium supplements
- Type 1 diabetes

I have high potassium what can I do about it


That's the good news! If you have high potassium - or are at risk for getting it - speak to your doctor about the various options you have to manage your potassium levels. It's important you tell your doctor about all the medicines you are taking including over-the-counter drugs, herbals, and supplements. To help keep your potassium levels within normal range, your doctor may recommend the following:
- Following a low-potassium diet, if needed.
-Try avoiding certain salt substitutes.
- Avoiding herbal remedies or supplements.
- Taking water pills or potassium binders, as directed by -your healthcare provider.
- Following your treatment plan carefully if you have -diabetes, kidney disease, heart disease, or any other serious condition.

Low potassium diet


High potassium food: potatoes, bananas, whole grains, milk, and tomato products. Low potassium food: berries, squash, corn, rice, poultry, fish and non-dairy substitutes. To lower potassium levels in potattoes, cut them into tiny pieces, soak them in water, then drain off (discard) the water.
