Fluid balance: The explanation may be complex. Albuterol in high doses can cause low blood potassium. Otherwise, if you are drinking over 90 oz fluid per day and adding salt, and are still appearing dehydrated to your practitioner, then you must be losing fluid and some Na and K from your body somewhere. Possibilities are GI, skin, or kidneys. Some kidney dz cause just that: fluid loss, Na loss, and K loss. ...Read more
