associated symptoms

May 30, 1997

Can being diagnosed with "deathly low potassium" be associated hiv or could another illness be the cause?

Response from Mr. Sowadsky

Hi. Thank you for your question. I'm not sure what you mean by "deathly low potassium." However, having low potassium levels does not indicate HIV infection. However, it can indicate many other types of medical problems.

You must speak with your physician to determine what is the possible cause of your low potassium levels in your body. Your physician would have to do other tests to determine why your levels are so low.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to call the Centers for Disease Control at 1.800.232.4636 (Nationwide).
