    well u know half the answer , there is shift from intra to extra cellular ,thus the patient will have Hyper K and when we treat DKA we MUST give the maintance of K bcz insulin will shift K to inra cellular.
    If not giving K with tx then we will produce Hypo K .
    In ICU treating DKA ,K started after making sure pt is urinating.
    I hope this will help.

  • Dka Hypokalemia Or Hyperkalemia

    Sort Adrenal causes of hyperkalemia? Adrenal gland is important in secreting hormones such as cortisol and aldosterone. Aldosterone causes the kidneys to retain sodium and fluid while excreting potassium in the urine. Therefore diseases of the adrenal gland, such as Addison's disease, that lead to decreased aldosterone secretion can decrease kidney excretion of potassium, resulting in body retention of potassium, and hence hyperkalemia. How traum ...

    INTRODUCTION Hyperkalemia is a common clinical problem. Potassium enters the body via oral intake or intravenous infusion, is largely stored in the cells, and is then excreted in the urine. The major causes of hyperkalemia are increased potassium release from the cells and, most often, reduced urinary potassium excretion (table 1). This topic will review the causes and evaluation of hyperkalemia. The clinical manifestations, treatment, and preven ...
