Hello all. Here is a question for you. I have stage 5 CKD with 14% eGFR but my potassium levels remain normal. In fact the latest blood test shows a drop from 4 to 3.5 mmol/litre. My phosphate is pretty good as well at 1.16. I am not complaining but all articles I have read say that potassium increases as the kidneys decline. Any ideas why mine is stable?
