Hi. Welcome To HealthcareMagic
Low and high potassium are dangerous to heart. Management of high and low potassium should be closed monitored and the medications given only tell the defect is corrected. K-BIND sachets decrease absorption. But they should be used with our doctor prescription and monitoring the Blood potassium. Ask doctor
for prescription and repeat the blood test
There diuretics medications meaning which increases urine output. When on these medicines, patients loose sodium and potassium. But this medicine is Blood pressure medicines. It can be used if you have Blood pressure.
itself decreases potassium. So you can request long acting insulin in smaller doses which decreases potassium.
But My best options are two.
1. Avoid diet high in Potassium. 2.
HIGH potassium DIet:
All meats, poultry and fish are high in potassium.
Apricots (fresh more so than canned)
Oranges and orange juice
Potatoes (can be reduced to moderate by soaking peeled, sliced potatoes overnight before cooking)
MODERATE Potassium Diet
These foods can be a large part of most people's balanced nutrition plan. Persons restricting their potassium might be cautioned to include no more than one or two servings from this list per day, depending on their medical restrictions.
Summer squash, including zucchini
LOW potassium DIet
These foods give less electrolyte value per serving for people who need to increase their potassium levels.
They should be a major part of the menu plan for people limiting their intake.
Mandarin oranges, canned
