Kaliuresis is the process of excreting potassium in the urine.
Thiazide diuretics are used to treat patients with heart failure. Their goal is to decrease the amount of salt in the body by decreasing the amount that the kidney reabsorbs. This excess sodium in the kidneys that is destined for excretion can cause Hyponatremia and can lead to kaliuresis by increasing sodium-potassium exchange.
