Peg 3350 Sodium Chloride Sodium Bicarbonate And Potassium Chloride Side Effects
Different molecule: Both Potassium Chloride and bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) are used as potassium supplements with the only difference being the part of molecule (the anion) attached to the potassium. The bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) portion of the molecule acts differently than chloride and is responsible for the fizzing in soday. It is for this reason that potassium bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) can be used as an aantacid. ...Read more
A low sodium salt has contents: 66.6%potassium chloride,33.3%sodium chloride.Should I be concerned on its high potassium or good replacement for salt?
Use caution.: Salt intake and salt replacements are getting a lot of press lately. Sodium load in a diet is getting out of control due to practices of our food industry and taste requirements. People look at the alternatives and Potaccium is one of them. A usual replacement shows that the ratio of NaCL/KCl should be 60/40. So your salt may be showing an unusual ratio. But be aware that it is quantity not ratio. ...Read more

Blood tests showed sodium 141, potassium 4, chloride 99, bicarb 22 which gives me a high anion gap of 24. As I am fatigued could this indicate cancer?
Can these cause any issues with hearing :potassium chloride, disodium phosphate dodecahydrate and sodium dihydrophosphate dihydrate?
Hearing: It is unlikely that any hearing loss is related to the items you list. Hearing tests are essential - I have had them and am wearing hearing aids. Many big stores offer hearing tests at no cost. In my area it is Costco or Sam's Club. There should be something like this all over the USA. ...Read more
Could a runner running in the heat who was drinking a sport drink with only potassium chloride and carbohydrates (no sodium at all) get hyponatremia?
Yes. : Any drink that doesn't taste like the ocean is mostly water, regardless of whether it contains sodium or not. Long distance runners can be susceptible to hyponatremia, and risk factors include long distances (marathons, ultra-marathons), women, low body weight, inadequate training, and water loading before and during the race, especially if more weight is gained by water than lost by sweat. ...Read more
Is salt restriction really necessary for hypertension? Is there any side effect of salt substitute (potassium chloride) that I should be aware of?
Potassium and HBP: In the absence of chronic kidney disease, potassium ingestion has a beneficial effect on blood pressure. A review article showed that increased potassium intake is potentially beneficial to most people without impaired renal handling of potassium for the prevention and control of elevated blood pressure and stroke. Here is the link: http://www.Bmj.Com/content/346/bmj.F1378. Speak to your physician. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I am on fludrocortisone for pots. My bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) is 32 potassium 3.5 and im short of breath. What should be done?
HIGH BICARB LOW K: Your elevated serum bicarb and reduced serum potassium are due to your med - Fludrocortisone. It signals renal retention of bicarb and excretion of potassium. To remedy - consume more potassium - tomato, potato, citrus, melon, banana, strawberries, etc. Tablets also can help. Also, a bit more salt will help the bicarb retention. Salt will raise potassium excretion though. Hence eat more K. ...Read more

Twitching all over body, skip beats while resting on side (they come together not followed) I take magnesium oxide and potassium chloride but nothing ?
Many causes possible: You have made an assumption that magnesium and potassium are sufficiently low to be the causes of twitching. However, there are many other causes for muscles to twitch- many of which are more common than electrolyte disturbances that should be checked. Would you like a virtual consultation?

My potassium level is low, dr started me on potassium chloride, but I take lisinipril htc. Is this ok?
Yes: The low potassium is due to the diuretic in your medicine (the htc). This diuretic works toward the end of the kidney tubule and increases the loss of potassium. It is important to take the potassium chloride and have the blood level checked to be sure of improvement. Very low potassium levels can be dangerous. ...Read more
Why is there an edema when you have Cardiomyopathy? I was given a diuretics. Now why do you think is it that I was given a potassium chloride?
Poor heart function: if the heart is weak, then it does not pump forward well, and fluid backs up in places - ankles/feet; lungs; belly. diuretics help drive excess fluid and salt out of the system. often diurectics also drive potassium out in the urine - hence extra potassium is needed to be taken in. ...Read more
