Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
High potassium level may be due to many reason like hemolysis, high potassium diet etc. Potassium level is very sensitive and high potassium level can leads to life threatening arrhythmia. You should control it immediately. Treatment of cause is also needed. Consult your doctor and take treatment accordingly.
