How can i make sure i’m getting enough potassium while trying to lose weight?
Most people get enough potassium if they eat a balanced diet. If potassium levels are low, a doctor may prescribe the mineral in the form of supplements. If you have a severe deficiency, you may need intravenous (IV) treatment. A potassium test (also known as serum potassium) is used to measure the amount of potassium in your blood.
Potassium helps regulate important bodily functions, and a potassium-rich diet is associated with health benefits.
