In brief: See Your Doctor

Recurrent hypokalemia can be a serious problem that causes weakness or possibly heart arrythmias.
It is usually caused by an excessive release of potassium through urination or by excessive diarrhea. In nay respect, there may be underlying kidney issues or a medication that could be causing this recurrent issue. Therefore you should see your doctor for further evaluation.

In brief: Recurrent Lo K

Find the cause by testing blood renin and aldosterone, lytes and urine lytes.
Once u know cause easy to treat, I do second opinions on this problem.
