Treatments for Hyperkalemia

Hyperkalemia is an unhealthy excess of potassium in a person’s blood. This can occur because of Yasmin, Yaz, or Ocella use. These birth control drugs may drastically alter a person’s potassium levels, putting them at risk for abnormal heart rhythms. If left untreated, these rhythms can lead to serious heart problems or even a heart attack.

Abnormal heart rhythms, or cardiac arrhythmia, are very serious health concerns that may be linked to the use of the birth control drugs Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella. For more information about your legal options if you’ve suffered a heart condition because of these drugs, contact a Yasmin lawyer from Williams Hart today by calling 800-761-3187.

What Treatments Are Available?

A physician’s primary concern for someone suffering from hyperkalemia is to lower their potassium levels before a life-threatening health emergency occurs. This can include the following methods of treatment:

  • Prescribing a calcium-based treatment
  • Using insulin to temporarily lower potassium levels
  • Using bicarbonate therapy to temporarily lower potassium levels
  • Treating blood directly through filtration or hemodialysis

These treatment methods can prove to be prohibitively expensive in some situations, leaving a person with costly medical bills as a result of Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella’s dangerous properties.
