False Positives

So one possible explanation of my raised Potassium appears to be due to the large number of dead Myeloma cells in my blood stream, which have been destroyed by the chemotherapy- these cells – full of potassium are giving false positive readings  due to the method of testing.

More blood extraction has not reveal acidima (acidic blood) and a new test will be carried out to determine more accurately the potassium content which still might be high.)

My poor veins and arteries are taking a pummelling but hopefully we are getting to the bottom of things.
