What is going on with low potassium and high creatinine levels? Are they associated with kidney disorders? If so, how to deal with them safely and efficiently? Now follow us to find the answer.
The normal potassium level is 3.5-5.0mmol/L. Low potassium level is defined as a potassium level below 3.5mmol/L. Potassium is a mineral in the body. Almost 98% of potassium is found inside the cells. Small changes in the level of potassium that is present outside the cells can have severe effects on the heart, nerve and muscles. However, the kidney is the main organ that controls the balance of potassium by removing excess potassium into the urine. Besides kidney disorders, dehydration, diarrhoea, excessive sweating are common cause of low potassium levels. If we only take kidney disorders into account, electrolyte disturbance causes low potassium level.
If we leave out other factors which can also influence creatinine levels, the appearance of high creatinine level can tell the impaired kidney function. As our kidneys have very strong compensatory ability, the creatinine levels will not increase until about 40-50% of kidney function is lost.
