Potassium vs Diazoxide - What's the difference?

potassium | diazoxide |


As nouns the difference between potassium and diazoxide

is that potassium is a soft, waxy, silvery reactive metal that is never found unbound in nature; an element (symbol'' k) with an atomic number of 19 and atomic weight of 390983 the symbol is derived from the latin ''kalium while diazoxide is a potassium channel activator which causes local relaxation in smooth muscle by increasing membrane permeability to potassium ions, used as a vasodilator to treat hypertension and in diabetes to decrease the secretion of insulin.
