OBJECTIVES To compare serum potassium concentrations in diabetic and non-diabetic patients in the early phase of acute coronary syndromes. BACKGROUND Acute phase hypokalaemia occurs in response to adrenergic activation, which stimulates membrane bound sodium-potassium-ATPase and drives potassium into the cells. It is not known whether the hypokalaemia is… CONTINUE READING
