In Reply to: Definitely get another PCP. And why is glucose 106 a problem? posted by If your potassium is low normal, it's still normal. SM on Sat, Sep 11 2021 at 02:25 PM CDT:
I was Googling how much food equals the 4700 mg of daily potassium that a person is supposed to have, and I found this:
A BREAKFAST of 1 cup of low fat yogurt (579 mg potassium, 127 calories) with 1 cup of cantaloupe (473 mg potassium, 60 calories), and 1/3 cup almonds (349 mg potassium, 190 calories); a LUNCH of 1/2 cup cooked Swiss chard (961 mg potassium, 35 calories) with 1/2 cup cooked white beans (595 mg potassium, 153 calories); and a DINNER of 4 ounces cooked halibut (590 mg potassium, 160 calories), 1/2 cup cooked spinach (419 mg potassium, 21 calories), and a baked sweet potato (694 mg potassium, 131 calories) will get you the potassium you need.
Great googly moogly! That's a lot of food. No way, Jose. Give me a pill. HA! I will see what the labs show at my yearly eval. in November with a NEW PCP, I hope. I think dehydration played a big part in my funky lab numbers, but I'm doing much better at drinking. I probably should be dead. I have never been a water drinker in all of my 68 years. Grace of God.
