I don't make New Year's Resolutions. I don't think I ever really did, but the last decade or two would have been enough to stifle that impulse. I've just been too aware that I don't have that much control over what happens in my life.

    hello. maybe some people already know but i just found out that beta blocker can caused hyperkalemia also it got interaction with insulin inhibitor and calcium.
    could someone explain more?
    it kind of confused me cause i thought and read that consume more potassium is important. and also i was thinking about the connection of BB to low blood presure,etc.

    Hello. No one knows?
    Since many people depend on beta blocker. What to do if it induce hyperkalemia? Also for pots have to take electrolyte drink which is potassium.
    I need some light here.

    I just Googled this issue.

    It does seem like a possibility but it seems quite rare and generally thought to be associated with other underlying health issues:

    It seems to me that it may be wise to discuss your concern with your doctor and ask about regular monitoring of your serum electrolyte levels.

    Best of luck to you.
