I have high potassium and calcium levels? What does this mean?
High potassium levels can occur for a number of reasons, including most commonly as a side effect of blood pressure medicine. Because high potassium levels can cause serious health problems if left untreated, they should be discussed with your healthcare provider and treated right away. High calcium levels are also serious and should be discussed with your healthcare provider. High calcium levels are less likely to be from medication side effects and more likely from other medical conditions. Like high potassium levels, high calcium levels are abnormal and need to be addressed. There are ways to treat both of these abnormal conditions, but first your provider must determine the cause in order to avoid them from recurring in the future.
