My dr had me on sodium pills and potassium pills. Both of these levels are critical to your health. I had to get my blood taken every 3-4 weeks to check my levels. Please talk to your Dr about this. My mother died because she tried to gauge herself. She was only 48. You have to be careful - listen to your body. When you are having leg and feet cramps, that is a sign of low electolytes. When your heart is racing, that is a sign of being too high. Research the symptoms. Most of all, listen to your body. You know when you feel "off." Ask your dr to set you up an account at your local lab so you can run there when needed to get blood taken. If you have health insurance, you can run to an urgent care office that has a lab and they can take blood there. If you ask them to label your blood work as STAT, your results will come back in less than 24 hours. I hope this helps..
Good luck and be careful.
