In Canada, hyperkaleemia is a rare disorder caused by an excess of red blood cells, but it can also lead to complications, including miscarriage.
The most common complication is anencephaly, where babies are born with abnormally small heads and no limbs.
About 20 per cent of babies born with this condition are born alive.
If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with hyperketalemia, you should talk to your doctor about taking medication that blocks the body’s ability to make red blood cell production.
Hyperkalema is a condition that causes a high level of red and white blood cells in the body, which cause the body to produce too much of the hormone red-blood-cell, which is a necessary nutrient for life.
The body produces a surplus of red cells that can cause severe red-cell depletion and premature death.
The problem is often misdiagnosed and untreated, and some doctors still think it’s only anemia, the body being deficient in red blood, that causes the condition.
The Canadian Society of Clinical Pathologists (CSCP) says about one in five patients with hyperkemia will develop hyperkalaemia.

But there is no treatment for hyperkaloemia, and it can be life-threatening.
Symptoms of hyperkallemia include: high blood pressure
