The symptoms of electrolyte imbalance are based on which of the electrolyte levels are affected. If your blood test results indicate an altered potassium, magnesium, sodium, or calcium levels, you may experience muscle spasm, weakness, twitching, or convulsions.
A range of factors can compromise the kidneys’ ability to perform their vital work. These include illnesses like diabetes or high blood pressure, inflammation and a range of inherited conditions. Deficiency or excess in key minerals like calcium and phosphorous, electrolyte imbalances like sodium and potassium, dehydration and fluid retention can all have their genesis in the kidneys.
