Hyperkalemia, which is defined as an elevated serum potassium level (ie, >5.0 mEq/L), may be caused by a reduction in the renal excretion of potassium or an intracellular-to-extracellular shift in potassium that results from various acute clinical conditions. Although the kidney can adjust to a reduced number of nephrons and maintain normokalemia under steady-state conditions, it lacks the ability to respond to acute increases in potassium load and to adequately excrete potassium in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD); the result in both cases is hyperkalemia.
