232 Possible Causes for Urine Potassium Decreased

  • Acute Renal Failure

    […] in urine output Seizures, muscle twitching as a result of increasing potassium levels (hyperkalemia) Changes in the electrocardiogram such as elevated or peaked T waves associated[] : To get rid of extra fluid and prevent electrolyte imbalances Kayexalate (polystyrene sulfonate) is used to decrease buildup of potassium Sodium bicarbonate is used to decrease[] […] and/or diarrhea Rapid onset of numbness or tingling, especially around the hands and feet Sudden onset of edema to the feet and/or hands Rapid onset of hypertension Rapid decrease[]

  • Dehydration

    Examination of urine and measurement of a 24-hour urine sample may be done to determine if output is normal or decreased.[] ., sodium, potassium, chloride), blood urea nitrogen (BUN), and creatinine, among others.[]

  • Diarrhea

    Diarrhea describes bowel movements (stools) that are loose and watery. It is very common and usually not serious. Many people will have diarrhea once or twice each year. It typically lasts two to three days and can be treated with over-the-counter medicines. Others have diarrhea often as part of irritable bowel[…][]

  • Acute Pyelonephritis

    Subcapsular renal hematoma (SRH) is an extremely rare complication of acute pyelonephritis (APN). We report a case of SRH complicating APN with a ureteral stone, together with a review of the literature.[]

  • Addison's Disease

    Because mineralocorticoids stimulate sodium reabsorption and potassium excretion, deficiency results in increased excretion of sodium and decreased excretion of potassium,[] […] chiefly in urine but also in sweat, saliva, and the GI tract.[]

  • Chronic Pyelonephritis

    Vesicoureteral reflux and chronic pyelonephritis are usually associated with proteinuria of less than 1 gm. per 24 hours. When there is massive proteinuria an associated glomerulopathy is usually present. We describe a patient who had nephrotic syndrome with radiological evidence of ureterovesical reflux and[…][]

  • Hypokalemia

    What Makes the Potassium Level Decrease?[] […] serum potassium levels Delivery of negatively charged ions to the collecting duct (eg, bicarbonate) Potassium excretion is decreased by the following factors: Absolute aldosterone[] Measurement of potassium level in the blood Electrocardiography Sometimes measurement of amount of potassium in urine The diagnosis is made by measuring a low potassium level[]

  • Malabsorption Syndrome

    2015 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code 579.9 Unspecified intestinal malabsorption 2015 Billable Thru Sept 30/2015 Non-Billable On/After Oct 1/2015 ICD-9-CM 579.9 is a billable medical code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis on a reimbursement claim, however, 579.9 should only be used for claims with a date of service on or[…][]

  • Familial Periodic Paralysis

    Serum and urine potassium are decreased. Weakness may last up to 24 h. Episodes often begin at an earlier age and usually are shorter, more frequent, and less severe.[] Urine output is low with elevated urine levels of sodium, potassium, and chloride.[] During an attack the plasma potassium level is decreased, although it may not fall below the normal or reference range.[]

  • Post-Streptococcal Glomerulonephritis

    […] to insensible losses plus two-thirds of urine output until diuresis occurs) Avoidance of high-potassium foods Bed rest, with gradual return to usual activity as status improves[] […] unresponsive to treatment) No-added salt diet until edema and hypertension resolve Protein restriction if azotemia and metabolic acidosis are present Fluid restriction (amount decreased[]
