i cant belive they never tested him..yes i can belive,.there that way around flu season..

it may be that his GFR is not up to par..this is the filtering of the blood...you need the labs..if the creatine is higher than 1.3 then the GFR will decrease..this may lower the potassium..dehydration  make the potassium higher..

the doc said this was  mabey  hyperkalemia is higer potassium...and low potassium  is  hypoklamia...or the other way..i might be off..you can google this and pull up sites to were you can get good info..read on it,,this may help you see what may or may not be wrong...but usually when you lose potassium threw the kidney's  ur dehydrated...or low potassium to begin with ,,,no meds  hmmmm...yes blood p is the sign of low potassium and low heart rate..mail me  whats going on  now???  did they put him on a potassium supplement like micro k ??? mail me let me know,,,thanks   james
