    High Potassium

    Hi all. I'm a 28 year old female. I went to a local urgent care a few days ago for extream all over body itching that had been going on for 4 weeks. They did a comprehensive metabolic panel and call with the results today. Everything was normal except I had high Potassium. What could cause this? No history of hearts problems. I have been the an ER for something unrelated about 3 years ago and was told the same, high Potassium. And ideas or suggestions. TIA
