potassium levels low
Hi,
My question is,   Is it common for end stage cirrohsis to cause low potassium levels that are considered critical.   So critical that cardiac arrest happens?  
My father suffered end stage cirrohsis.   For about two weeks his potassium level was critically low.  He was given potassium intraveniously and then sent home after 24 hours and told to take an oral pill several times a day for the potassium level.  It never rose.  He ended up going into cardiac arrest three day's ago.  I'm wondering of the low potassium and eventual death were the result of his liver disease or something else.  I'm just wondering is this is common.
Thanks
