Sažetak
Hypokalemia is a rare condition in the end-stage renal disease patients on hemodialysis, and especially in those with no residual diuresis. If hypkalemia occurs, it is usually transient and mostly associated with gastrointestinal loss of potassium (massive diarrheal stools), or appears immediately after hemodialysis with the use of dialysis solutions with potassium concentrations lower than 2 mmol/L. The aim of this case report is to present a case of a female diabetic patient on hemodialysis with permanent severe hypokalemia associated with chronic colonic pseudo-obstruction and secretory diarrhea, and to point to the possible rare cause of permanent hypokalemia in anuric patients with end-stage renal disease as well as to the causal relations of persistent hypokalemia with changes in different organ systems.
