Anorexia (with purging now) and 2.2 potassium
I was in the ER last week because my potassium level was a 2.2, I think from purging, and restricting so severely. I was given IV potassium, magnesium, and 24 potassium supplements. After staying overnight I was at a 3.3.
I was discharged but told to continue taking the magnesium and potassium supplements and get a follow-up test later that week. My EKG in the hospital was abnormal. My doctor did a follow-up EKG later that week, and though my levels were back to a safe range, my EKG was still abnormal.
I'm still struggling, I know it's insane but I have the hardest time getting myself to consume anything.
Is it concerning that the EKG is still abnormal? How often should I test for low potassium? When I wound up in the hospital with a 2.2 that was WITH taking supplements...I've purged since then...I know how horrible this sounds, but please help?
