Potassium: Potassium levels does not have a significant effect on blood pressure directly, however levels of potassium are affected by medications that treat blood pressure such as diuretics and ace inhibitors. There are also medical conditions that cause high blood pressure that affect potassium level as well, e.g. Hyperaldosteronism.
