Can a renal cysts cause hypokalemia?

No. A renal cyst is usually a benign formation within the kidney that usually goes unnoticed until one has an imaging study such as an ultrasound or cat scan that reveals it (them).

A cyst in and of itself in the kidney does not cause low potassium levels (hypokalemia).
