What foods are low in potasium? My last blood test last friday, my potassium was really high.

HIgh potassium level: Did a doctor order your blood test? Did you speak to him? Perhaps you need to see a neprhologist to see what is causing your high potassiumn (k) level in your blood. If you have normal kidney function, your k would not be elevated. Please see a nephrologist to have an examination and take some blood work. Eating a diet low in k probably is not the answer to your high k level in your blood. ...Read more

Low potassium 3mmol/l for the last month? Have been eating high potassium foods and it has not increased?

Need more info.: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that.

Very difficult: if your kidney function is normal it is difficult to "overdose" on potassium because your kidneys excrete the excess.

Meds and potassium: The best person to ask your question to is your physician (p). You have CHF and diabetes and only take spironolactone (s). Your tolerance for potassium (k) is dependent on your kidney function. If you have chronic kidney disease higher than stage 3, you may run into problems with k. Unless you have low k, there is no need for you to take k tablets when taking s. Speak to your p for more answers. ...Read more

Augment: Some lifestyle measures such as weight loss, sodium restriction and exercise can augment the beneficial effects of traditional medical therapy. However, If that was all that it took there would not be hundreds of different pharmacological therapies, instead I would just prescribe life style management.
