Potassium Deficiency: A condition due to decreased dietary intake of potassium, as in starvation or failure to administer in intravenous solutions, or to gastrointestinal loss in diarrhea, chronic laxative abuse, vomiting, gastric suction, or bowel diversion. Severe potassium deficiency may produce muscular weakness and lead to paralysis and respiratory failure. Muscular malfunction may result in hypoventilation, paralytic ileus, hypotension, muscle twitches, tetany, and rhabomyolysis. Nephropathy from potassium deficit impairs the concentrating mechanism, producing POLYURIA and decreased maximal urinary concentrating ability with secondary POLYDIPSIA. (Merck Manual, 16th ed)Hypokalemia: Abnormally low potassium concentration in the blood. It may result from potassium loss by renal secretion or by the gastrointestinal route, as by vomiting or diarrhea. It may be manifested clinically by neuromuscular disorders ranging from weakness to paralysis, by electrocardiographic abnormalities (depression of the T wave and elevation of the U wave), by renal disease, and by gastrointestinal disorders. (Dorland, 27th ed)Potassium: An element in the alkali group of metals with an atomic symbol K, atomic number 19, and atomic weight 39.10.

The three sites were ceded to the British by the Chinese respectively in 1841, 1860, and 1898. Hong Kong reverted to China in July 1997. The name represents the Cantonese pronunciation of the Chinese xianggang, fragrant port, from xiang, perfume and gang, port or harbor, with reference to its currents sweetened by fresh water from a river west of it.Sodium Chloride Symporter Inhibitors: Agents that inhibit SODIUM CHLORIDE SYMPORTERS. They act as DIURETICS. Excess use is associated with HYPOKALEMIA.Sulfanilamides: Compounds based on 4-aminobenzenesulfonamide. The '-anil-' part of the name refers to aniline.Potassium Compounds: Inorganic compounds that contain potassium as an integral part of the molecule.Bicarbonates: Inorganic salts that contain the -HCO3 radical.

The word is a local name in Gold Coast, Africa, meaning "displaced child". Although first reported from Africa, kwashiorkor is now known throughout the world, but mainly in the tropics and subtropics. It is considered to be related to marasmus. (From Dorland, 27th ed)Lactose Intolerance: The condition resulting from the absence or deficiency of LACTASE in the MUCOSA cells of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT, and the inability to break down LACTOSE in milk for ABSORPTION. Bacterial fermentation of the unabsorbed lactose leads to symptoms that range from a mild indigestion (DYSPEPSIA) to severe DIARRHEA. Lactose intolerance may be an inborn error or acquired.Infant, Extremely Low Birth Weight: An infant whose weight at birth is less than 1000 grams (2.2 lbs), regardless of GESTATIONAL AGE.Infant, Very Low Birth Weight: An infant whose weight at birth is less than 1500 grams (3.3 lbs), regardless of gestational age.Community Health Workers: Persons trained to assist professional health personnel in communicating with residents in the community concerning needs and availability of health services.Infant, Low Birth Weight: An infant having a birth weight of 2500 gm.

Potassium deficiency symptoms appear as interveinal chlorosis on older leaves, that eventually progress to a red and/or gold coloration of the leaves. In cotton prior to bloom these symptoms will be visible on the lower leaves first because the plant is able to translocate Potassium from the older leaves to the newer leaves of the plant. After peak bloom similar deficiency symptoms can appear as well but will appear on the upper third of the plant.. In addition to the traditional leaf discolorations caused by Potassium deficiency, after peak bloom leaves may also begin to curl downward and the leaves to become thicker. If the Potassium deficiency is severe enough the plants may start to defoliate early, which can cause the deficiency to be confused with the vascular wilt disease called ...

As an electrolyte that carries a charge through liquid in the body, potassium is a very fluid-based mineral. That being said, potassium deficiencies most often occur when a medical condition or illnesses causes an individual to lose a great amount of fluid through vomiting or diarrhea. While a deficiency of any electrolyte is cause for concern, a potassium deficiency is extremely dangerous in children who tend to have levels lower more quickly than adults.. Some of the primary symptoms related to a potassium deficiency include becoming disoriented, nausea, muscle cramps and overall weakness and fatigue. Patients suffering from underlying heart conditions or who retain low fluid levels over an extended period of time have a higher risk of suffering from heart failure as the result of a ...
Our results show that potassium deficiency produces different effects on ovarian and plasma steroid hormones in female mice and suggest that normal levels of potassium are essential for the maintenance of correct regulatory control of steroid sex hormones.. That potassium deficiency decreases plasma progesterone while slightly increasing circulating estrogens indicates that the response of ovarian hormones to hypokalemia is specific and correlates with the changes observed in the reproductive physiology of female mice. These results complement our previous findings showing that potassium deprivation produced a dramatic decrease in circulating testosterone and in the activity of enzymes induced by androgens in male mice (50). Taken together, our results clearly show that hypokalemia causes infertility in both male and female mice.. The ...

Potassium (K+) balance is achieved by the control of urinary K+ excretion and by the control of K+ absorption from the digestive tract. While it is well established that colonic H/K-ATPase a subunit mRNA is expressed in the kidney, distal colon, and uterus, little is known about the cellular localization and expression levels of this gene in chronic hypokalemia. Accordingly, Northern analysis and in situ hybridization (ISH) were carried out to analyze the expression of mRNA encoding the colonic H/K-ATPase a subunit in normal and potassium-restricted (2 weeks) rats. Northern analysis demonstrated that colonic H/K-ATPase a subunit mRNA was abundantly expressed in normal and potassium-restricted rat uterus. Abundance of colonic H/K-ATPase a subunit mRNA in potassium-restricted rat uterus was increased but, not statistically significant compared to that of controls. By ISH, mRNA ...

Severe life threatening hypokalaemia in a patient with an eating disorder.. 1. Describe and Interpret:. Hyperchloraemic non anion gap metabolic acidosis. HCO3 16. AG 16. CL high. Severe hypokalaemia. Rhabdomyolysis. Interpretation -. RTA with severe hypokalaemia causing Rhabdomyolysis (look for other causes of Rhabdo). Potassium plays a major role in regulating the skeletal muscle blood flow; an increased potassium concentration in the muscle during muscle activity causes vasodilatation, which increases the regional blood flow. In state of hypokalemia, this increase is hampered causing relative ischemia in the active muscle consecutively leading to muscle cramps, and in a severely depleted state may cause muscle necrosis and rhabdomyolysis. In addition to hypoperfusion, hypokalemia-induced impairment in muscle metabolism also may contribute to muscle dysfunction.. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3109789/?report=printable. 2. ...

Our patient, a 31-year old, previously healthy Caucasian Swiss man, had a case of impressive symptomatic hypokalemia. His neurological symptoms (cramping and muscle weakness) resolved rapidly after correction of hypokalemia.. Hypokalemic paresis (paralysis) may be acquired in patients with thyrotoxicosis [1]. Our patient showed neither clinical nor biochemical signs of this disease, which is mainly found in Asians but still is more common as a cause of severe neurological symptoms in a patient presenting with hypokalemia in our hospital than Gitelmans syndrome, with the latter being more commonly found by chance on the basis of a laboratory finding of low potassium. Our patient had no history suggestive of familial periodic paralysis. This rare, hereditary defect of calcium or magnesium channels in skeletal muscles enhances the likelihood that insulin secreted after the intake of carbohydrate-rich food or catecholamine bursts (in response to ...

Intravenous patient controlled analgesia(IV-PCA) has been widely used to control postoperative pain. The increase in stress hormone level and hyperventilation caused by the postoperative pain may contribute to the development of hypokalemia during postoperative period. Hypokalemia is a risk factor for postoperative arrhythmia. Therefore, if the postoperative pain is well controlled by the IV-PCA, the plasma potassium level during the postoperative period may be not affected by stress response, and the incidence of hypokalemia may be reduced. The researchers tried to investigate the effect of IV-PCA on potassium regulation during the postoperative period.. The researchers divided the patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy into two groups of IV-PCA group and control group. The researchers compared the plasma potassium concentration from the preoperative to postoperative period. ...
Hypokalemia, also spelled hypokalaemia, is a low level of potassium (K+) in the blood serum. Normal potassium levels are between 3.5 and 5.0 mmol/L (3.5 and 5.0 mEq/L) with levels below 3.5 mmol/L defined as hypokalemia. Mildly low levels do not typically cause symptoms. Symptoms may include feeling tired, leg cramps, weakness, and constipation. It increases the risk of an abnormal heart rhythm, which are often too slow, and can cause cardiac arrest. Causes of hypokalemia include diarrhea, medications like furosemide and steroids, dialysis, diabetes insipidus, hyperaldosteronism, hypomagnesemia, and not enough intake in the diet. It is classified as severe when levels are less than 2.5 mmol/L. Low levels can also be detected on an electrocardiogram (ECG). Hyperkalemia refers to a high level of potassium in the blood serum. The speed at which potassium should be replaced ...
Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis. by: Joe Hing Kwok Chu. Other names: familial periodic paralysis, periodic paralysis. @. Hypokalemic periodic paralysis is a congenital disorder that occurs within certain families and causes intermittent episodes of muscle weakness or paralysis. The attacks can occur from daily to yearly and may last for a few hours or for several days. There is a low level of potassium in the bloodstream (hypokalemia) during the attack. But the serum potassium levels are normal between attacks.. There is no potassium deficiency in the whole body. Hypokalemia is low blood levels of potassium (low serum potassium).

Deficiency of one nutrient can impact your health. Health problems are increasing rapidly. The American diet has changed significantly. Due to this, chronic nutrient deficiencies are also increasing. Poor health has become common now.. The most common nutritional deficiency is that of magnesium. Body needs magnesium for a variety of reasons. Magnesium is difficult to obtain from food.. Why is it difficult to obtain sufficient magnesium?. It was once easy to get your daily dose of magnesium. Eating what you grew would provide magnesium since soil has a lot of magnesium. But modern farming has destroyed the magnesium present in soil.. It is found in dark leafy greens, nuts, beans, seeds and mackerel. There are also supplements giving magnesium.. The following are 32 symptoms that show you could be deficient in magnesium.. - Seizures. - Anxiety. - Cystitis. - Muscle cramps. - Hypertension. - Heart issues. - Confusion. - Depression. - ...
I have been slowly declining in health since the birth of my son in 1997. I was older (39) and developed hypertension during the pregnancy and then it went away afterward…not preclampsia. Then it returned 11 months later. I have been going to a chiropractor for at least 20 years but over the last 8 years I noticed that my adjustments wouldnt hold and I sometimes was out as soon as I got off his table. I started getting horrendous headaches, increased immune suppression and on and on. 12 years later I was depressed, ill, weight gain, fatigue to the point of having to take naps or go back to bed when my son was at school and each time I went to the doctor they only wanted to put me on more medicines for my HBP. I struggled to get tests because no doctor wanted to. I finally got one and she came back with the results that I had potassium deficiency and dehydration but no high cholesterol, normal salt, normal everything that leads to hbp. Her response was eat a ...
Erectile dysfunction (ED), also known as impotence, is a type of sexual dysfunction characterized by the inability to develop or maintain an erection of the penis during sexual activity. Erectile dysfunction can have psychological consequences as it can be tied to relationship difficulties and self-image. The most important organic causes of impotence are cardiovascular disease and diabetes, neurological problems (for example, trauma from prostatectomy surgery), hormonal insufficiencies (hypogonadism) and drug side effects. Psychological impotence is where erection or penetration fails due to thoughts or feelings (psychological reasons) rather than physical impossibility; this is somewhat less frequent but can often be helped. In psychological impotence, there is a strong response to placebo treatment. Besides treating the underlying causes such as potassium deficiency or arsenic contamination of drinking water, the first line treatment of erectile ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Diuretic-induced hypokalaemia and ventricular arrhythmias. AU - Holland, O. B.. PY - 1984. Y1 - 1984. N2 - In the past, adverse cardiac effect of potassium depletion in non-digitalised patients and in patients without cardiac disease were considered to be minimal. However, several studies have now demonstrated a significant incidence of ventricular ectopic activity in diuretic-treated patients, particularly in those who became hypokalaemic. Potassium repletion with potassium-sparing diuretics or with potassium chloride supplementation has generally demonstrated a beneficial therapeutic effect in reducing ventricular ectopic activity. However, occasional patients may have persistent ventricular ectopic activity after diuretic therapy which may result from focal myocardial lesions associated with potassium depletion. In ...
Volume depletion and potassium depletion may coexist in some disorders (eg vomiting). Severe potassium depletion alone can cause a metabolic alkalosis but this is typically only of mild to moderate degree. The mechanism seems to be related to an intracellular shift of H+ (intracellular acidosis) in exchange for K+. The alkalosis is generated predominantly due to non-renal mechanisms. Renal mechanisms are frequently involved in causing the potassium depletion (eg in syndromes of mineralocorticoid excess).. Volume depletion has long been implicated in maintenance of an alkalosis. The idea is that hypovolaemia is associated with increased fluid and sodium reabsorption in the proximal tubule and bicarbonate is reabsorbed in preference to chloride; the alkalosis thus being maintained. The role of volume depletion has probably been over-emphasised: the co-existing chloride depletion is the most important factor ...
Should someone supplement Potassium? Potassium is a key ingredient to maintaining a healthy heart, muscle function, kidneys, nerves, and your digestive system. While certain foods naturally will provide the potassium levels most women and men need, there are select individuals who must have much more than what can be processed through eating like those without potassium issues. A potassium supplement is necessary for those who have either temporary or permanent deficiency that deplete their body of potassium, such as: being dehydrated, having vomited while sick, diarrhea, inflicted with kidney disease or gastrointestinal disease and from having fluids sweated out from your pores (heat stroke, sweat, dehydration, diarrhea, etc.), from vomiting (the 24 hour flu, bulimia, as a result of another ...

The prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) is increasing and dietary interventions may be a strategy to reduce this burden. In the general population, higher potassium intake is considered protective for cardiovascular health. Due to the risk of hyperkalemia in CKD, limiting potassium intake is often recommended. However, given that poor cardiovascular function can cause kidney damage, following a low-potassium diet may be deleterious for patients with CKD. The aim of this systematic review was to summarize the evidence on dietary potassium intake and CKD progression. Multiple databases were searched on 7 June 2019 and data were managed with Covidence. No intervention trials met the inclusion criteria. Eleven observational studies met the inclusion criteria (10 post hoc analyses, 1 retrospective cohort), representing 49,573 stage 1-5 ...
Ensuring that our bodys fluids and electrolytes are in balance is crucial for life and homeostasis. Preventing and managing fluid and electrolyte imbalances is common in clinical practices. If an imbalance occurs, it must be corrected or it can adversely affect multiple body systems including the neurologic, cardiovascular and skeletal systems. When the amount of water in your body either increases or decreases, electrolytes can become too high or too low. When this happens, close monitoring is necessary. The most common fluid imbalance is hypovolemia or low blood volume, which is most often the result of dehydration. The most common electrolyte imbalances are sodium and potassium. You may also see imbalances in calcium, magnesium and phosphorus, however these are less frequent. This module will discuss hypovolemia, dehydration, and sodium and potassium imbalances. Since you will be providing care to individuals with fluid and electrolyte ...
In the new study, Yu, Kim and their colleagues looked for VNO potassium channels, which admit positively charged potassium ions. They began by setting up whole-cell patch clamp tests, in which tiny electrodes measure the net flow of charged ions through the membranes of neurons in a slice of mouse VNO tissue. To determine the contribution of potassium ions to these currents, they replaced the potassium ions in the neurons with chemically similar cesium ions, which cannot get through potassium channels. When these potassium-depleted VNO neurons were exposed to pheromone-containing mouse urine, the usual net inward flow of positive charge was significantly greater than it had been when the neurons contained potassium.. That and other experiments with the VNO tissue slices ...

We read with great interest the article by MacDonald and Struthers (1) in a recent issue of the Journal.The article reports that potassium depletion is important in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease and sudden cardiac death. The authors suggest that avoiding hypokalemia is beneficial in several cardiovascular disease states, including acute myocardial infarction, heart failure, and hypertension. The data linking hypokalemia with arrhythmia and cardiac arrest in acute myocardial infarction are fairly strong (2-4).. We want to add atrial fibrillation (AF) after cardiac surgery to the list of cardiovascular diseases where electrolyte imbalance may play an important pathogenetic role. Although the etiology of AF after heart surgery is incompletely understood, stimuli and triggers such as pre-existing structural changes of the atria related to hypertension, mechanical damage, volume overload, age, intraoperative atrial ischemia, and pericardial lesions are thought to ...
Methods of processing an aqueous solution comprising potassium sulfate and magnesium sulfate include crystallizing K2SO4, crystallizing recycle crystals, and mixing at least a portion of the recycle crystals with the aqueous solution. Systems for processing potassium sulfate and magnesium sulfate include a first crystallizer and a second crystallizer in fluid communication with the second mix tank. The second crystallizer is structured and adapted to precipitate recycle crystals from the concentrated liquor to form a potassium-depleted recycle brine. The recycle crystals precipitated in the second crystallizer have a composition suitable to be recycled to the first crystallizer to increase the production of SOP.

Deep-water pockmarks are frequently accompanied by the occurrence of massive gas hydrates in shallow sediments. A decline in pore-water Cl− concentration and rise in δ18O value provide compelling evidence for the gas hydrate dissociation. Mega-pockmarks are widely scattered in the southwestern Xisha Uplift, northern South China Sea (SCS). Pore water collected from a gravity-core inside of a mega-pockmark exhibits a downward Cl− concentration decrease concomitant with an increase in δ18O value at the interval of 5.7-6.7 mbsf. Concentrations of Cl−, Na+, and K+ mainly cluster along the seawater freshening line without distinct Na+ enrichment and K+ depletion. Thus, we infer that the pore water anomalies of Cl− concentrations and δ18O values are attributed to gas hydrate dissociation instead of clay mineral dehydration. Moreover, the lower δ18O values of sulfate in the target core (C14) than those in the reference core (C9) may be associated with the equilibrium oxygen fractionation during
Isolated segments of the guinea pig circumflex coronary artery were stimulated transmurally with brief duration (0.05 msec) pulses while recording intracellularly. Resting membrane potential was -60.3 +/- 4.3 mV (n = 66). Transient depolarizations (TDs) graded in amplitude with stimulus intensity were elicited with single stimuli. An action potential of 47 +/- 5 mV was superimposed upon the TD above a threshold membrane potential of -48 +/- 4 mV. Following the spike, a period of slow repolarization requiring 77 +/- 33 seconds was observed. Repetitive stimulation led to summation of TDs and a slow depolarization (less than or equal to 21 mV) that persisted for up to 90 seconds. The TD was reduced in amplitude when the membrane was depolarized with increased [K]o and enhanced when the membrane was hyperpolarized by adding potassium back to a potassium-depleted tissue. Phentolamine (10(-5) M), prazosin (10(-6) M), guanethidine (2 X 10(-5) M), ...

Low Potassium Linked to High Blood Pressure. As a risk factor for high blood pressure, low levels of potassium in the diet may be as important as high levels of sodium especially among African Americans, according to research being presented at the American Society of Nephrologys 41st Annual Meeting and Scientific Exposition in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.. There has been a lot of publicity about lowering salt or sodium in the diet in order to lower blood pressure, but not enough on increasing dietary potassium, comments lead author Susan Hedayati, MD, of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, and the Dallas VA Medical Center. The new study suggests that low potassium may be a particularly important contributor to high blood pressure among African Americans, and also identifies a gene that may influence ...
Low potassium intake or a low potassium diet is one of the major causes for a condition medically known as Hypokalemia. Hypokalemia literally means a paucity of potassium in the blood. However, in contrast to what might seem obvious, Hypokalemia is not caused only by a poor dietary intake of potassium. Hypokalemia is a condition that is caused by loss through the integuments in your digestive system and also through your kidneys.. The two major causes for the loss of potassium from the digestive system can be vomiting and diarrhea. In addition to this, excessive laxative use and intestinal surgeries can also cause this.. Hyperaldosteronism Can Lead To Hypokalemia. Hyperaldosteronism is a medical condition that may lead to the increased production of aldosterone by the adrenal glands. This hormone can cause ...
Left ventricular dP/dt has been reported to be enhanced in the perfused isovolumic paced heart (Langendorff preparation) isolated from sodium-depleted rats. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that this positive inotropic effect is caused by increased responsiveness of the contractile myofilaments to calcium. To address this question, the calcium-left ventricular pressure relation during tetanization of the whole heart at different extracellular calcium concentrations (2.5, 5.0, 7.5, 12.5, and 15.0 mM) was studied in 19 sodium-depleted (low sodium diet plus diuretics) and 18 control (regular sodium intake) Sprague-Dawley normotensive rats. Results showed that the maximum calcium-activated left ventricular pressure (induced by tetanization) was significantly higher in sodium-depleted than in control rats at 12.5 mM calcium concentration (170 +/- 27 [SD] mm Hg in sodium-depleted rats vs. 112 +/- 14 mm Hg in control rats, p = 0.0005). The calcium concentration at which half-maximal left ...

Renal tubular acidosis (1), an impairment of renal acid excretion out of proportion to reduction of glomerular filtration rate, has been described in a variety of clinical settings. Its characteristic clinical manifestations are hyperchloremic acidosis, an inability to excrete a highly acid urine, and impaired renal concentrating ability. It may be associated, in the primary form, with renal calculi, nephrocalcinosis, osteomalacia, and potassium depletion (2). Subclinical cases-either asymptomatic or lacking the laboratory findings of the overt cases of renal tubular acidosis-have been uncovered by an acid-loading test designed to detect acid excretion inappropriate to the induced metabolic acidosis (3, 4). ...

To assess the role of clathrin in the bulk endocytic flow of rat foetal fibroblasts, the rate of internalization of fluid-phase and membrane-lipid tracers were compared, under control conditions and after inhibition of endocytic clathrin-coated pit formation. After intracellular potassium depletion or upon cell transfer into 0.35 M NaCl, the rate of internalization of receptor-bound transferrin and the residual membrane area of plasmalemmal clathrin-coated pits and vesicles were similarly decreased by approximately 90%. In contrast, the initial rate (, 5 min) of intracellular accumulation of the fluid-phase tracer HRP was not affected. Both in control and treated cells, the rate of HRP accumulation declined after approximately 5 min, and was twofold lower in treated cells, due to enhanced regurgitation. After correction for regurgitation, the endocytic rate constant was similar to measurements at shorter intervals and identical in control and treated cells. Similarly, the ...
WASHINGTON : Eating foods rich in potassium, such as bananas and avocados, daily may prevent hardening of the arteries that can result in heart disease and death, researchers, including one of Indian origin, claim. Researchers at University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) in the US have shown, for the first time, that reduced dietary potassium promotes elevated aortic stiffness in a mouse model, as compared with normal-potassium-fed mice. Such arterial stiffness in humans is predictive of heart disease and death from heart disease, they said. Researchers, including Anupam Agarwal from UAB, also found that increased dietary potassium levels lessened vascular calcification and aortic stiffness. They unravelled the molecular mechanism underlying the effects of low or high dietary ...

Johns Hopkins researchers find mineral deficiency increases disease risk. Lower potassium levels in the blood may help explain why African-Americans are twice as likely to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes as whites, according to a new study by Johns Hopkins researchers.. The findings, if confirmed, suggest that part of diabetes prevention may someday prove as easy as taking a cheap potassium supplement.. "This research doesnt mean people should run out and start taking potassium supplements," says Hsin-Chieh "Jessica" Yeh, Ph.D., an assistant professor of medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and an author of the study, which appears in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. "But we now know lower serum potassium is an independent risk factor for diabetes and that African-Americans have, on average, lower ...
High sodium and low potassium intakes have been linked to hypertension. Americans consume higher than recommended amounts of sodium and lower than recommended amounts of potassium. The new dietary reference intake (DRI) values for sodium are 1500 mg/day for men and women ages 19-50 years, 1300 mg/day for men and women ages 50 to 70 years of age, and 1200 mg/day for men and women >70 years of age. The very first DRI for potassium is set at 4700 mg/day of potassium for both men and women >18 years of age. The data of 6,135 persons aged 18 years and older from NHANES 1999-2000 and 2001-2002 were analyzed in this study to assess sodium and potassium intakes of Americans. The variables were gender, age, ethnicity, annual household income, education level, and body mass index (BMI). The statistical software, SUDAAN was used to ...

Many epidemiological studies have shown that reduced salt intake is directly related to decreased BP.13-15 The Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet, which was a randomized trial comparing the effects on BP of 3 total salt intake levels (8.3, 6.2, and 3.8 g/d for high, intermediate, and low salt intakes), showed significantly lower systolic (SBP, −5.9, −5.0, and −2.2 mm Hg) and diastolic BPs (DBP, −2.9, −2.5, and −1.0 mm Hg) at each salt level, respectively.14 The DASH diet and salt reduction independently lowered SBP and DBP.. In a Chinese study that included a 7-day low-salt intervention (51.3 mmol/d), a 7-day high-salt intervention (307.8 mmol/d), and a 7-day high-salt plus potassium supplementation (60 mmol/d), the correlation coefficients of the SBP responses to low-sodium and high-sodium intervention were −0.47 and that to high-sodium intervention and potassium supplementation was −0.52.16 These ...
Abstract: Coronatine [COR] is a novel type of plant growth regulator with similarities in structure and property to jasmonate. The objective of this study was to examine the relationship between increased root vitality induced by 10nM COR and reactive oxygen species scavenging under potassium (K)-replete (2.5mM) and K-deficient (0.05mM) conditions in hydroponic cultured cotton seedlings. K-replete and K-deficient conditions increased root vitality by 2.7- and 3.5-fold, respectively. COR treatment significantly decreased lipid peroxidation in cotton seedlings determined by reduction in MDA levels. These results suggest that COR improves the functioning of both enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidant systems. Under K-replete and K-deficient conditions, COR significantly increased the activities of antioxidant enzymes SOD (only for K-repletion), CAT, GPX, and APX comparing; COR also significantly increased DPPH-radical scavenging activity. However, COR led to 1.6- and 1.7-fold ...
A manifestation of changing dietary loads over time is to regulate the distribution of ROMK channels between the apical membrane and intracellular storage, that is, high-potassium diets lead to insertion of apical channels and therefore higher potassium secretion. In contrast, during periods of prolonged low potassium ingestion, there are few ROMK channels in the apical membrane. Yet another adaptation to prolonged periods of low potassium ingestion is an increase in H-K-ATPase activity in intercalated cells, resulting in even more efficient reabsorption of filtered potassium. (3) Aldosterone. We discussed the role of aldosterone in regulating sodium excretion in Chapter 7. Here we describe its role in potassium excretion. A stimulator of aldosterone secretion by the adrenal cortex, in ...
In this study, we asked whether AD-related neuronal hyperexcitability involves changes in dendritic excitability. We showed that Aβ-induced hyperexcitability originates in the dendrites in hippocampal neurons and that dendritic hyperexcitability is associated with reduction in the level of Kv4.2 potassium channels. Tau is required for both the decrease in Kv4.2 and the increase in dendritic hyperexcitability. Our data suggest a feedback loop in which Kv4.2 depletion increases excitability and epileptiform activity, which in turn contributes to further reduction in Kv4.2. Loss of Kv4.2 is detrimental and exacerbates deficits in mice expressing hAPP/Aβ.. This is, to our knowledge, the first direct evidence of dendritic hyperexcitability in a model of AD. The ability to patch and directly record from dendrites was critical in this study as dendritic excitability cannot be evaluated using conventional whole-cell patch-clamp or extracellular field recordings because of the ...
Selenium is an essential constituent of glutathione peroxidase and deficiencies have been linked to increased risk of cancer. There is also evidence that selenium is essential for normal thyroid metabolism. A recent report claims a link between selenium and HIV, wherein selenium depletion increases the rate of virus replication and speeds the development of full-blown AIDS in infected individuals. Acute selenium overdose is associated with hair and nail loss, dermatitis, tooth decay, and neurological symptoms. The selenium assay is used for the therapeutic monitoring of selenium replacement therapy and toxicity assessment of selenium. ...
p53 is a transcription factor that specifically binds to a consensus DNA sequence and efficiently transactivates expression of the target genes (5, 8, 11). In addition, p53 also regulates a wide variety of cellular and viral promoters that lack specific p53-binding sites (37, 47). Because increased expression of p53 exerts distinct cellular outcomes such as growth arrest, apoptosis, or cellular senescence, depending on activation or repression of specific p53 target genes, cell type, and the nature of stress (5, 11), it is important and interesting to define the direct mediators of polyamine depletion-induced p53 in the normal epithelial cells of the intestinal mucosa. Our previous studies have found that polyamine depletion increases cytoplasmic HuR levels, in turn controlling the stability of the p53 and nucleophosmin (NPM) mRNAs and increasing p53 and NPM protein levels (54). Increased NPM also interacts with and stabilizes p53 protein in polyamine-deficient cells (53). Although increased ...

Another thing to consider is whether youre consuming enough calcium. With or without eating dairy products, its possible to get calcium from leafy greens, other veggies, beans and legumes. To obtain enough calcium naturally without needing supplements, consider adding high-quality and ideally raw dairy products to your diet if you can tolerate them. Foods like organic probiotic yogurt, cultured raw cheeses and raw milk provide high levels of electrolytes in addition to other important nutrients.. 2. Monitor Your Sodium Intake. When you do consume packaged or processed foods, check the sodium levels. Sodium is an electrolyte that plays a significant part in the bodys ability to retain or release water, so if your diet is very high in sodium, more water is excreted by the kidneys, and this can cause complications with balancing other electrolytes.. Heres how sodium works within the body: Essentially, water follows salt, which means if you increase sodium too much, water retention also occurs. ...
Previous publications have described a "volume controlling mechanism" in duck erythrocytes that returns both enlarged and shrunken cells to their original isotonic volume. Enlarged cells return to their original size by readjusting their K content. To study the specificity of this aspect of the mechanism for K, we prepared enlarged cells with various Na and K contents. Only cells containing a high K content resume their original size in the standard isotonic medium. The process of regulation resembles that described above. In contrast, cells containing a high Na content fail to reestablish this volume, but shrink instead until they reach a limiting minimal volume (four-fifths of normal). Here, another mechanism, the cation pump rather than the volume controlling mechanism, removes Na and is responsible for the changes in cell size. Enlarged cells with an intermediate Na and K content utilize both mechanisms to reduce their cation content. Only if Na is prevented from leaving the cell and ...

As I mentioned above, fluid and electrolyte imbalance results from several factors and I can attest to this especially in a hospital care setting. Working in a Chemo Base Unit is no joke. One day you see your patient alert and oriented, vitally and hemodynamically stable then the following day you will see your patient unresponsive, with muscle twitching, shortness of breath, unstable vital signs and so on and so forth. I remember one time a patient who is post chemotherapy came to ER and was admitted to our unit which presented with severe mucositis (oral thrush/ulcers), with profuse diarrhea, looking pale and dry, lethargic. The patient is always nauseated and with on and off vomiting, with vital signs BP (90/58); HR (120); RR (24); O2 (95%) on room air. As the primary nurse, I followed up the blood results keenly and unluckily, it came out to have severe electrolyte imbalance. Serum K (3.0meq/L); serum Mg (0.59meq/L); serum Ca (7.5mg/L). IV fluid with additives were ordered by the physician. ...

Potassium is an essential electrolyte, which is a mineral your body needs to function correctly. Potassium is especially important for your nerves and muscles, including your heart. While potassium is important to your health, getting too much of the nutrient can be just as bad as, or worse than, not getting enough. Normally, your kidneys keep a healthy balance of potassium by flushing excess potassium out of your body. But for many reasons, the level of potassium in your blood can get too high. This is called hyperkalemia, or high potassium. According to the Mayo Clinic, a normal range of potassium is between 3.6 and 5.2 millimoles per liter (mmol/L) of blood. A potassium level higher than 5.5 mmol/L is ...

What causes electrolyte imbalances? Electrolytes like potassium, calcium, sodium, and magnesium play a crucial role in the way our bodies cells function. Electrolyte deficiencies can cause serious symptoms, including lethargy, confusion, cramps, weakness, swelling, seizures, and coma.
Electrolyte imbalances can cause serious problems. The food you eat contains electrolytes, but it can be helpful to give your body an electrolyte balance boost if your levels are low. Studies show its most effective to pair amino acids and electrolytes.
Potassium is a mineral that is found in almost every food item we eat, differing only in the amount. So, a well balanced diet, with fruits, vegetables, milk, etc in it, is all you need to maintain the proper level of potassium in the body. Though lack of potassium has not been directly linked to a disease, the mineral has been found to be of great importance in helping body perform its vital functions. However, even too much of potassium is not good for health. An average adult is required to consume 2,100 to 3,200 mg of potassium in a day. Check out the amount of potassium in various food items, mentioned below, to know whether you are getting enough potassium in your daily diet or not ...

My brother almost died when he was a new-born. Though healthy at birth, it soon became apparent that he was having serious problems. Increasingly emaciated and severely dehydrated, he was suffering from chronic diarrhea. As a result, lactose - the one thing he relied on almost more than anything - could not be digested. The diarrhea got worse and worse; he grew thinner and thinner.. Biologically speaking, this is what was happening to him: diarrhea is brought about when the mechanism controlling fluid balance in the intestine is disturbed. The most common causes of this are toxins secreted by bacteria, or damage to the lining of the bowel by bacteria. My brother was experiencing the latter due to a bout of gastroenteritis. As a result, his body was releasing excessive amounts of essential fluids - water and electrolytes. The loss of these fluids was literally draining the life out of him. The electrolyte imbalance could well have begun to damage his kidneys and cause his heart to beat ...
