Firstly, you got your question wrong (medically).
Better, write down the exact K levels to throw some light for you.

Secondly, effects depend on the grade/severity of elevated or depressed levels of K.
Hyperkalemia is elevated levels and hypokalemia is depressed levels.
Which one are you referring to ?
