Patient Comments: Hyperkalemia - Treatment

What treatment was effective for your hyperkalemia?

Comment from: vilaskotekar, 45-54 Male (Caregiver) Published: April 17

My brother is suffering from cirrhosis of the liver, portal hypertension, and ascites. He is taking Ursomax and Aldactone. Now he is taking Indian Noni Gold juice. I don't know whether this improves his health condition or causes side effects. It is supposed to increase potassium levels in the body.
