16 Possible Causes for Hyperkalemia during Attacks

  • Hyperkalemic Periodic Paralysis

    Some people with hyperkalemic periodic paralysis have increased levels of potassium in their blood (hyperkalemia) during attacks.[en.wikipedia.org] Most people with hyperkalemic periodic paralysis have increased levels of potassium in their blood (hyperkalemia) during attacks.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov] Hyperkalemia results when the weak or paralyzed muscles release potassium ions into the bloodstream.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Normokalemic Periodic Paralysis

    Some people who suffer from HyperPP have increased levels of potassium in their blood (hyperkalemia) during attacks, while in other cases, attacks are associated with normal[cannabisoilsuccessstories.com] Each patient exhibited the characteristic clinical and laboratory features (including hyperkalemia during spontaneous attacks) of hyperKPP.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Most people with hyperkalemic periodic paralysis have increased levels of potassium in their blood (hyperkalemia) during attacks.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hyperkalemia

    In the rare disorder hyperkalemic familial periodic paralysis, weakness frequently develops during attacks and can progress to frank paralysis.[merckmanuals.com] Symptoms and Signs Although flaccid paralysis occasionally occurs, hyperkalemia is usually asymptomatic until cardiac arrhythmias develop.[merckmanuals.com] Serum potassium measurement ECG Review of drug use Assessment of renal function Hyperkalemia (serum potassium 5.5 mEq/L) may be found on routine serum electrolyte measurement[merckmanuals.com]

  • Familial Periodic Paralysis

    Most people with hyperkalemic periodic paralysis have increased levels of potassium in their blood (hyperkalemia) during attacks.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov] ) during attacks.[icdlist.com] During attacks, muscles of the lower extremities are initially affected, followed by the lower trunk and arms.[icd10data.com]

  • Periodic Paralysis

    Most people with hyperkalemic periodic paralysis have increased levels of potassium in their blood (hyperkalemia) during attacks.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov] Hyperkalemia during attacks can be very mild and fugitive. Serum creatinine kinase (CK) levels can be slightly elevated.[orpha.net] Each patient exhibited the characteristic clinical and laboratory features (including hyperkalemia during spontaneous attacks) of hyperKPP.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiodysrhythmic Potassium-Sensitive Periodic Paralysis

    during attacks is typically not seen, the treatment for acute hyperkalemia which is severe or life‐threatening should match institutions’ established protocols.[doi.org] In severe attacks, therapeutic measures that reduce hyperkalemia are utilized. Continuous ECG monitoring is always needed during the treatment.[emedicine.medscape.com] (serum potassium concentration 5 mmol/L) or an increase of serum potassium concentration of at least 1.5 mmol/L during an attack of weakness and/or provoking/worsening of[strongbridgebio.com]

  • Paralysis

  • Atrioventricular Dissociation

  • Glycogen Storage Disease due to Muscle Beta-Enolase Deficiency

    Whether the underlying channelopathy leads to hyperkalemia or hypokalemia, the serum potassium is normal between attacks.[clinicalgate.com] The clinician rarely has the opportunity to obtain a serum specimen during an event per se.[clinicalgate.com]

  • Paramyotonia Congenita

    (serum potassium concentration 5 mmol/L) or an increase of serum potassium concentration of at least 1.5 mmol/L during an attack of weakness and/or provoking/worsening of[strongbridgebio.com] Hyperkalemic periodic paralysis (hyperPP) is characterized by attacks of flaccid limb weakness (which may also include weakness of the muscles of the eyes, throat, and trunk), hyperkalemia[strongbridgebio.com]
