I've had low potassium a couple of times over the years and my internist had me take prescription potassium with follow-up blood tests to ensure my K was back in the expected range. It was an easy fix.
One of the most important functions of potassium is regulating heart beat or function, but this abnormality is usually seen only in extremely low K (<2.0) or extremely high (>6.5) and can be treated quickly. Just make sure you follow your doc's orders. Love, Butterflake
