I am on spironolactone 25mg due to ef of 30-40%. Is it ok to eat foods high or with potassium and take multi vitamins with 10mg of potassium?

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

In a health checkup it was found out that vitamin d in my body is 10.6 and potassium 5.6. .. Rest everything was ok. Being a vegeterian wt shld I do?

Diet and supplements: Consider vitamin d supplementation. Also, make sure your kidney function is ok if your potassium remains high since normal kidneys should be getting rid of potassium in the urine. Avoid constipation which can increase potassium levels (should be no problem for a vegetarian with high fiber intake). Avoid vegetables that contain high potassium like spinach and potatoes. ...Read more

If I have low potassium and vitamin d, what would be a good prenatal vitamin?

If I have low potassium and vitamin d, what would be a good prenatal vitamin?

Prenatal & Vit D &..: No prenatal alone will be adequate. I do not know of any prenatals with more than 1000 iu of d and if you are low in d I advise at lease 5000 iu a day, which you can take with your prenatal. None have much potassium- get that from more fruits & veggies. Also advise a dha supplement. Many good prenatals but I advise basic prenatal by thorne research as it has the optimal form of folate (folic acid) (l-5-mthf). ...Read more

Can low potassium be causes stress & anxiety? Also have low vitamin D

No.: Low potassium does not cause stress or anxiety. Spontaneously occurring low potassium in conjunction with hypertension is often related to hyperaldosteronism. If you do not have high blood pressure I would not worry much. Vitamin D level greater than 20 is normal according to some experts and 30 according to others. Migh want to look at your level more closely. ...Read more

Nutrition: Improving your nutrition is essential. Food sources are best. Eat colored fruits and colored vegetables daily. Aim for 8 servings per day.

I find it hard to get enough omega-3 and vitamin-d as well as potassium just from food alone as recommended dosages is 2-3g; 1000iu and 4700?

Food then supplement: Evidence currently suggests that eating healthy is best way to stay healthy. Attempts to isolate specific factors from food and sell said factors as supplements have not demonstrated much benefit. With that said, if you don't like or can't eat enough fish, dairy & fruits/veggies, I suppose you could/should take supplements. But i'd still recommend real food first. Btw, fda doesn't approve suppleme. ...Read more

Have some numbness tingling left thigh. Vitamin d is 22, ferritin was 175 and potassium was 5.7. Any of these causing my condition?

Lab values: In regards to your lab tests, your vit. D is low, your ferritin is normal and you potassium is a bit high. What "condition" are you referring to?

Eating too much __________ can cause damage to the liver. Is it. Potassium B. sodium C. vitamin B D. magnesium?

Eating too much __________ can cause damage to the liver. Is it. Potassium B. sodium C. vitamin B D. magnesium?

Liver damage: If you have too much salt in your diet, that excess sodium won't cause liver damage, according to the National Library of Medicine. High dietary intake of Magnesium and Potassium is normalized by renal excretion and will not generally cause problems. High doses (2000 to 3000 mg per day) of niacin (vitamin B3) can also cause nausea, jaundice and elevated liver enzymes mimicking hepatitis. ...Read more

I have high ana, rnp, and potassium and low vitamin d and my joints are swollen what does all of this mean this is the second time for high ana?

This is tricky: The real question is whether to begin treating you for lupus, mixed connective tissue disease, or one of the others. This is difficult and needs to be decided in conjunction with a specialist. Manage the vitamin D with a supplement or sunlight if you are not getting it in your food -- doing this is often difficult. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can vitamin d deficiency cause muscle cramps even when calcium, magnesium, and potassium levels are good?

Can vitamin d deficiency cause muscle cramps even when calcium, magnesium, and potassium levels are good?

May be: Many issues are attributed to low vitamin D without necessarily strong evidence. However, if you suspect vitamin D deficiency, which is common, take about 2000 units of vitamin D3 daily.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

Recommended daily intake for: b-complex, vitamin b-12, vitamin a, vitamin k, vitamin e, magnesium and potassium?

Recommended daily intake for: b-complex, vitamin b-12, vitamin a, vitamin k, vitamin e, magnesium and potassium?

Depends: If you look at any multivitamin bottle, there will be a rda (recommended daily allowance) for the different components. There is very little evidence out there that surpassing rda will treat or prevent any disease. From my field (ophthalmology), people who have moderate to severe macular degeneration can benefit from higher levels of a, c, e, and zinc, but the benefit is relatively small. ...Read more

Boost immune system: Work with your doctor to make sure you don't have an undiagnosed condition which is compromising your immune system. Low vitamin D should not cause this, but take recommended replacement. Low potassium? I don't know. I presume you are rinsing your mouth after use of your inhaler. Avoid sugars/alcohol; avoid foods with mold; soak toothbrush in alcohol after use. May need anti-fungal med prophylaxis ...Read more

Can I take vitamin C pills (always made of sodium/potassium bicarbonate, (sodium bicarbonate) ascorbate, benzoate...) w. pulmonary hypertension requiring low sodium diet?

Can I take vitamin C pills (always made of sodium/potassium bicarbonate, (sodium bicarbonate) ascorbate, benzoate...) w. pulmonary hypertension requiring low sodium diet?

Yes, however...: I strongly advise you take Vitamin C, ideally 1000 mg 2-3x/day, but you should try to find forms without sodium. I don't know what's available in Denmark, but in the US you can find ascorbic acid, or calcium or magnesium ascorbate without sodium. Lypo-spheric Vit. C is esp. Well-absorbed, but has 120 mg of sodium, but a low sodium diet usually allows 2000mg/day. Vit. C is best with bioflavonoids. ...Read more

Is it good to have a drink which contains soy protein, hi-maize, vitamin (a c B6 b12), thiamin b1, niacin b3, folate, (folic acid) sodium, potassium in pregnancy?

Is it good to have a drink which contains soy protein, hi-maize, vitamin (a c B6 b12), thiamin b1, niacin b3, folate, (folic acid) sodium, potassium in pregnancy?

Which form: Which forms the vitamins are can matter. For example, B6 comes inactive and also active. The active form of B6 is pyridoxal-5-phosphate. Too much inactive B6 can actually block active B6 from the B6 receptor, creating symptoms of B6 deficiency.
Folic acid is synthetic, and too much can be bad also. Methylfolate and folinic acid are what one should take during pregnancy. ...Read more
