Yes, and no.: Sodium and potassium are both positive elements that when combined with negative chloride molecules make salts that are both important parts of serum, and potassium in particular an important element in red blood cells (nb: sea water is very similar in composition to our blood). Abnormalities of potassium (hypo or hyperkalemia) or sodium (hypo/hypernatremia) are very distinct entities. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Correction of the d deficiency should result in a normal parathyroid hormone level. High urea could result from dehydration. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
