Re: Banana and cholesterol

Usually if someone is taking a blood pressure med in the Ace or ARB family they are told to avoid bananas. I have taken both yet still can eat a banana but only if they are quite small. If they are large, I was told to eat 1/2 a banana. Yes they are a bit high in sugar but my Potassium level gets low at times so that is why I was told to eat them. Ace or ARB meds. can raise your potassium level hence a Dr. telling you to stay away. Everyone is different so what may bother one person may not bother another.

Hope this helped some...JJ...
