About Hyperpotassemia

Hyperpotassemia is excess potassium in the blood. Also known as hyperkalemia, hyperpotassemia occurs when the kidneys can't get rid of extra potassium in the waste, allowing the mineral to build up in the bloodstream. Potassium is an essential mineral in the body that helps cells perform correctly, and is particularly important in helping to build and maintain muscles. Kidney diseases may cause hyperpotassemia, but a burn or other major injury to the body may also cause cells to release potassium. Hyperpotassemia can be a serious condition and requires medical treatment, particularly if potassium levels are very high and causing symptoms. Symptoms of hyperpotassemia include abnormal heartbeat, very light or slow pulse, and feeling nauseous.
