@GregV814 , buddy, you know we all love you?sorry to offend you. forget I said it.
The RDA of potassium is 4700mg = 4.7grams, daily. Potassium also helps to lower blood pressure. A good form of potassium to take is potassium citrate. Potassium is also one the electrolytes the body needs on a daily basis. The others are, magnesium, calcium, and sodium.Keep an eye on your Potassium. I know you dont have hourly blood tests, but chow down bananas, broccoli, spinach and potatoes.
I spent 6 hours in the E/R this morning with a resting pulse that is unforgiving. As soon as I was given i. v. treatment, it immediately dropped... Fortunately no serious damage but the labs PROVED a very low potassium level.
Diuretics like furosemide, bumetanide, hydrochlorothiazide, and chlorthalidone are the main medication-related cause of low potassium levels.
Sure. Go to the very people that only want to "treat" you, rather than heal you. A doctor's licence is, today, only a licence to practice quackery. But I understand your CYA reasoning.
