Hello. I have been diagnosed with hypokalemia recently . I take 10 pills of potassium citrate per day. Any thoughts on this disease?

      I ended up in ER 3 times in 2 months. Each time was borderline low potassium 3.0, 3.1, and 3.4. First time, required 2 potassium IVs. 3rd time, i was started on spironolactone and metoprolol. It worked. Only had 1 major episode the next month. Later my cardiologist acknowledged that he has had other patients who were very sensitive to even moderate low potassium levels like mine. Also fyi, my potassium levels fluctuated very quickly during that 2 month span. Once, it went up a full point in 3 days. Also note that too high of potassium can be even worse than too low. Unfortunately many of the symptoms are the same.

      Just take your meds regularly and keep praying healing comes with prayer even if it doesn't feel like it is working you have to believe you will get better and then continue believing in the faith of healing our father in heaven always prevails
