It usually results from increased potassium excretion or intracellular shift and less commonly from reduced potassium intake. Although many chapters, clinical statements, and guidelines refer to hypokalemia, they do so, mainly in the context of other clinical entities i.e., they mention this condition with other diseases. In most patients presenting with hypokalemia, the cause is apparent from the history (e.g., vomiting, diarrhea, diuretic therapy). Learn more about this case in this expert speaker presentation designed by Medvarsity and Dosily.
