    Everytime he has high serum potassium in his blood test. Sometime he has complain of chest pain and tingling sensation in legs and hands.His ped doctor says its normal.Chest pain could be due to acidity. But i don't think its normal.

    Re: 6 years old High Serum potassium.

    I agree that it doesn't seem normal to have high serum potassium. I'm not a doctor but I know that some people are born with abnormal kidney function. So you might want to think about taking him to a Nephrologist. A Nephrologist specializes in diagnosing and treating kidney disorders.
