What can you do to raise low blood pressure and low potassium levels at the same time?

Fluids. Drink fluids and eat salt and potassium rich foods like dark green leafy vegetables, tomatoes, and bananas. You may need to take a potassium supplement depending on your deficit. If you don't have diarrhea, vomiting, diuretic use, or nasogastric suction, your potassium will correct itself on its own.
