It depends: If it is a superficial (i.e., 1st- or 2nd-degree) burn, it will heal on its own within 3 weeks. If it is a full-thickness (i.e., 3rd-degree) burn, it will only heal on its own from the sides if it is very small or narrow. Otherwise, a 3rd-degree burn would need to be skin-grafted. If the wound is not healed after 3 weeks of good wound care, see a general, plastic, or burn surgeon. ...Read more

Sulfuric acid just splashed into my dads eyes and they were badly injured. Doc says the chemical will start reacting after some days. Plz suggest..
Start reacting?: I am not sure what start reacting means. Acid burns are dramatic, painful and sulfuric acid is one of the more dangerous.

Observe for blistering and/or spreading redness which would require a physician's evaluation. ...Read more

I have acid reflux and as a result poor diet and I feel like I'm low on potassium. How to supplement/foods to eat to raise it?
Low potassium?: Before you start to add supplement (s) (s) to raise your potassium (k) level, make sure that it is low. If it's not, you are wasting your money on a s you do not need. Have your blood taken by a physician to see if your k is, in fact, low before you make your own diagnosis that may be incorrect. Good luck. ...Read more

Lab results concerns: Yes, these are concerning. The potassium is very low and you may experience muscle weakness, cramps, and heart rhythm disturbances, including premature ventricular beats and even VTACH. Finding the cause matters. The cause must be identified and fixed. Meanwhile you need high levels of potassium intake daily. The anion gap is low and this may mean serum protein balance is off. Requires eval. ...Read more
I would like to know what it means when your test results reveal that you have high potassium levels in your blood?
High K+: Sometimes high potassium can be simply a lab error or when the red blood cell hemolyzed after the blood sample is not processed fast enough by the laboratory, but a truly elevated potassium level can be from kidney failure, ingestion of too much potassium, may need to repeat the blood test to verify elevated k+ level. ...Read more
I suffer from anorexia nervosa, and I just received my blood results back. I have 3, 1 of potassium, is it alarming?

At that level it can be given by mouth but should be done promptly because if it keeps going doing you might need intravenous replacement. Having low potassium puts you at risk of life threatening heart arrhythmias. Make sure you follow up with your provider as soon as possible on this. ...Read more
2 weeks ago my potassium level was 6.0, creatinine 1.1, and GFR 55. Should I be concerned about this test result?
Repeat the bld test: You didn't mention your BUN or sodium. Sometimes high postassium can be a false result from breakdown of blood cells (hemolysis). Are you on supplemental postassium? Adrenal problems can also cause high K+, Either way, high potassium can cause heart rhythm problems and you need to be retested. ...Read more
My wife had a second blood test and results as follows. Creatinine 36.0 umol/L. Sodium 1.38 umol/L and potassium 4.4 umol/L what does this mean?
Hard to interpret: Blood tests can't be taken out of context. They are only a part of any physician's evaluation and must be interpreted along with the history and physical exam. Also need to know the normal ranges for the particular laboratory. I suspect the sodium is 138, not 1.38, and that is usually within the normal range. So is potassium. Creatinine = 36/88.4=0.41mg/dl seems low. High creatinine is worrisome. ...Read more
Had routine labs recently. Potassium level was 6.2 and sodium was 148. The test were repeated 1 week later. Same results. I have no history of kidney?
Hyperkalemia is: A serious condition that can be life threatening given your potassium level is well above 6. I would make sure that the blood sample had not hemolyzed when you get it checked again, hopefully in the Emergency room, and make sure an EKG and kidney function tests are done. If everything normal then you may need to see a Kidney doctor or Endocrinologist to figure out why your potassium is high. ...Read more
This is complicated: Very low potassium can injury any cell in the body (less than 2-ish) low potassium is happening for a reason - for most people it is a problem that the kidney is excreting the potassium out of the body - many times it is caused by a medicine that makes your kidneys excrete the potassium. There are potassium sparing diuretics that help you retain potassium but needs to be prescribed and monitored. ...Read more
A nurse recommended not eating bananas strawberries tomatoes avocados due to high potassium results Not diabetic Is this true and what else needs ck'd?
Hyperkalemia: Your elevated K+ level is not from over eating potassium. The underlying reason should be explored. First have test repeated since its usually due to thrombocytosis (clotting) and hemolysis from poor technique, other reasons may be kidney failiure (ATN), rhabdomyolysis, tumor lysis syn., hypocalcemia or medication side effect (including digitalis toxicity). Insist on finding out why and get retest ...Read more
