Re: Low Potassium at 2.7, help
There could be several reasons for having low potassium.
Hopefully seeing the specialists will help.
For me, low potassium is due to taking hydrochlorthiazide which I take to try and help prevent kidneys stones. But this drug is also using for high blood pressure. Since its a diuretic it makes you go the bathroom a lot which makes you lose potassium.
Some (not all) other reasons potassium could be low are:
long strenous activities
medications (prescription or herbal)- some cause loss of potassium and other minerals/vitamins
not eating alot of foods that are high in potassium (bananas, oranges/citrus fruits, tomatos, apricots,spinach, sweet potatos, raisins, yogurt)
a 24 hour urine test (done so many can't count) will help determine your potassium and other minerals in an entire day. its a much better test than just a urine sample as so much can change in 24 hrs.
good luck and don't worry too much.
