A Low Potassium Diet

A person’s body uses potassium, a mineral found in many different foods, to maintain fluid balance and keep muscles, nerves and heart working properly.

Hyperkalemia, or a high potassium level, develops when too much potassium stays in the blood.

Besides lowering the amount of potassium in the blood, using a low potassium diet has many other benefits if required by your medical doctor.

She/he must limit foods high in potassium such as kiwi, bananas, almonds, canteloupe and red kidney beans.

Like any diet, a low potassium diet takes a lot of extra work to follow.
