For what reasons could i have hypokalemia?

Diuretic, diarrhea..

Spironolactone
above are two common causes of hypokalemia. types and doses of diuretics typically used today do not lead to low potassium. however, meds are complicated. some hypertensive meds (ARB's, ACE's) can lead to higher levels, some diuretics (spironolactone) also can. so follow doc's directions and have blood tested at least every 4 months. Diarrhea-can lose large amt K+, causes death in cholera.
