Potassium” and “sodium” in electrolytes are extremely important substances in the human body. The intracellular potassium and the extracellular sodium are about 30 times different in concentration. All cells in the human body have sodium-potassium pumps, whose main function is to maintain the concentration difference of electrolyte ions in the cell membrane, thereby controlling the distribution of water in the body, providing nerve conduction and controlling muscle contraction. It will lead to potassium loss when sodium is too much, and lead to sodium loss when potassium is too much. It will cause disease when the sodium and potassium imbalance.
When hyponatremia occurs in the human body, an imbalance of osmotic pressure in the body may occur. It will be causing symptoms such as dyspnea, nausea, vomiting, anorexia, lethargy, muscle cramps, and even coma.
When hypokalemia occurs in the human body, it may affect the cardiovascular, central nervous system, digestive, urinary and muscular systems of the human body, It will be resulting in hypotension, myocardial damage, anorexia, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, lethargy, and even coma, respiratory arrest, etc.
