Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Plasma aldosterone, plasma renin activity (PRA), and electrolyte excretion were compared in 12 consecutive patients with persistent hyperkalemia and chronic renal disease and nine normokalemic azotemic patients. Plasma aldosterone and PRA were normal in seven hyperkalemic patients, suggesting that hyperkalemia in azotemic subjects often is not consequent to the low renin, low aldosterone syndrome.
