Hipopotasemia (Hipokalemia)

Abnormally low potassium concentration in the blood may be due to excessive potassium loss through renal or gastrointestinal tract, to an insufficient supply or intercellular movements. It can manifest clinically as neuromuscular disorders that can range from weakness to paralysis, and electrocardiographic abnormalities (depression of the T wave and elevation of the U), such as kidney disease and gastrointestinal disorders. (Dorland, 28th ed)
