Abstract

Thirty-four patients (65.3+/-3.3 years of age, mean+/-SEM) with hyperkalemia (serum potassium >5.0 mEq/L) had measurement of their renin-aldosterone system. Nineteen patients (56%) had plasma renin activity (PRA) >1.5 ng/mL/h, which was not low, while 15 (44%) had PRA <1.5. Twelve of th...read more
