I have hypokpp. Is it K related to be unable to increase heart rate during exercise? Is usually accompanied by weakness, no pump, no perspiration
Yes. If by hypokpp you mean hypokakemic periodic paralysis then yes. The muscle cells lose potassium (k) and cannot contract causing weakness. Hard to increase heart rate.
