Can Renal cyst cause hight chromogranin and high vip levels? Also hypoK and dehydration.

Can Renal cyst cause hight chromogranin  and high vip levels? Also hypoK and dehydration.

No and maybe: Hi. Neither renal cysts nor tumors cause high chromogranin A nor high VIP. If the cyst is not a cyst, but a tumor, it could cause hypokalemia. Dehydration would be more likely due to the high VIP (which IS related to high chromogranin A), and the secretory diarrhea it causes. Renal cyst is probably a red herring. ...Read more
