I don't think food intake in normal amounts should promote hyperkalemia but periodic blood work should be ordered anyway ...Read more
Can lifestyle means like taking garlic and bananas or potassium rich food control high blood pressure instead of drugs or medications.pls explain?
Augment: Some lifestyle measures such as weight loss, sodium restriction and exercise can augment the beneficial effects of traditional medical therapy.
