yes. Histamine causes vasodilation and increased vessel permeability. But it's not involved in Gout. Gout is more about Neutrophils and Macrophages activating eachother and not really about Mast cells.
super high blood glucose; super high glucose spillage into urine; lots of peeing = volume depleted (“osmotic diuresis”)
because insulin normally stimulates Na/K ATPase, which sequesters K inside cell. lack of insulin means that there will be more K outside of the cell causing hyperkalemia. however, you are still total body K depleted due to osmotic diuresis. so the hyperkalemia is mainly due to a shift of K from the intracellular (where the vast majority of your K is inside your body is) to the extracellular space.
*where the vast majority of your K is inside your body
Woah. Who knew the body was so complicated?
