- Scientific TitleHypokalemia around PEG-asc bowel cleansing for colonoscopy
- hypothesisPolyEthylene Glycol with ascorbic acid (PEG-asc) bowel cleansing preparation could contribute to the development of low potassium values.

Hypokalemia is partially a pre-existing matter before bowel cleansing.

Elderly are at risk for development of hypokalemia around colonoscopy.

Use of diuretics and hospitalization are risk factors for the development of hypokalemia.
