""Hypokalemia is the result of urinary losses secondary to increased secretion of potassium, which is stimulated by the delivery of large amounts of sodium and fluid to the distal nephron. Acidosis contributes to this outcome by increasing the filtered load of potassium. Potassium depletion may result in muscle weakness, constipation, and, when severe, sudden death. In addition, hypokalemia contributes to the defect in urine concentration ability seen in these patients.""
