Potassium buildup--- ????

My sister is being prepared for dialysis.
She would prefer not to have to have it.

However, everytime they send her home, her potassium builds up and back to the hosp. she goes.

Now they're saying that since the potassium always goes up they just have to do the dialysis.

I only speak to her over the phone, so have very little information. can only get to see her every couple of weeks..

She is feeling ok, gets up and is alert, has lost a lot of weight (afraid to eat much)

Does anyone know what would cause the potassium build up? and what may help?
Does anyone know how to lower the potassium?

I don't know enough about the kidneys, and have very little time to try to help, or investigate. They are saying this time: dialysis...

Thanks for any input!
