In ATN maintenance phase (oligouric) why there is risk of hyperkalemia?
Also why increased risk of hypokalemia in recovery phase (polyuric)

During the recovery phase of atn, the gfr returns to normal. The recovery of the tubular epithelial cells are dalyed compared to the return of gfr to pre.morbid condition. The tubular epithelial cells are not yet able to reabsorb solutes. This will cause osmotic diuresis and will manifest as polyuria.
