Hi and thanks for the query,
Potassium levels will certainly have nothing to do with the accident.
The commonest and most serious cause of high postassium levels is renal or kidney
It is advisable for you to carry out renal function tests, and offcourse consult an internist for a complete clinical evaluation. Uncontrolled diabetes
mellitus also could cause high potassium levels and certain drugs. Remember uncontrolled high potassium levels at a particular point in time could lead to a heart attack
Thanks and hope this helps. Please do carry out renal function tests and diabetes screening, and consult your internist for a proper evaluation and management.
thanks and best regards,
