Hi Lanie! Sorry, I tried getting on sooner but I was having trouble with Dry Eye. Too much time on screens. I did get on but I couldn't read since my right eye hurt too much and I forgot to log off. I also didn't get any notices of posts on Monday and Tues. from HW. That has happened before. Don't know why.
Anyways, thank you for the links. Yes, my GP and I counted the liquids that I drank and we both decided it was over the normal amount suggested(6-8 glasses), so I have dropped back a lot which is not fun. I've been drinking many liquids daily for many years mostly for my health. Didn't have a problem before, although I have been drinking more. My GP asked me to check my BP daily.
As far as the BP pills, I've been taking them since my former Endo put me on them a few years ago, no problems. I was mistaken, I thought my new Endo put me on them but it was the statin that she put me on. The diuretic, my GP put me on recently is the "Plus" on my BP pills. That was after the tests went through twice. It is a recommended choice since it helps rid the body of some potassium. I was supposed to go for a 3rd test but did not in Mar. I was just told yesterday that I had to go for other blood tests on the 19th before the surgery. Those are different tests though. I was going to combine both test sheets from both Drs. Maybe that's waiting too long? Hate all this running around. I don't have any bad symptoms though. Just a few days with headaches(I feel bad for people who get headaches/migrains often) and a few days with nausea haven't had them for a couple days now.
The risk list doesn't apply to me except for the newer drug that I am on(God knows whats in that) plus possibly some of my other meds since I have lost track of some of the common and some uncommon side effects of them. I should go through them again. UGH!! And almost all foods have potassium including vegs and fruits as I mentioned. Maybe I was eating too much of potassium from foods, as you say. I didn't eat much before so now I quit totally. :/ I've not checked foods for potassium before hand. Enough having to check the carbs, sugar and sodium for the most part. Having diseases is a battle on the brain like we don't already overuse it too much in regards to normal life. (Thank you Brain for working so hard).
It's been raining here a couple days and will continue. It's good for the farmers as long as they do not get too much. I hope you are having good weather and a good week Lanie.
p.s. Oh, 2 days ago I got the call for my hip surgery this month. Blah! Oh well, I can't complain since it is in the timeframe that he gave me.
