Low K and B12: 21 F has low K she thinks is due to B12 and asks what dose and how long for Klor-Con to help. I have been doing low K Dx for 50 years and never heard of it due to B12. Is low B12 because you are a vegetarian? Usually get plenty of K if so. Therefore the problem is to find the cause of the low K and then the treatment will be clear. Common Dx: using diuretics, low K intake, vomiting or diarrhea
