Thank you for your question. If your potassium levels are dangerously high, you can experience life threatening heart dysfunction. For this reason, you need to go to your nearest emergency department where your heart will be monitored and you will placed on an intravenous solution containing a special compound which will bind to excess potassium in you blood and you will excrete it via the urine. You will also be placed on medications and other minerals to support the normal function of your heart. This is a medical emergency, and we encourage you to go to the emergency department as soon as you can.
