Hi Dan, I don't know. What I will say is that the amount listed is for steady-state situations, healing ongoing at a replacement pace. With onset of healing as it occurs I would not be surprised to find out that the need goes up even 50% or so. When I started the l-carnitine fumarate by thigh muscles on top were the thickness of my thumb. I lost 45 pounds of water in 3 months. In a year I put 50 pounds of muscle on my body and my thighs became normal. In two years they were back to my skier thighs. How many hundreds of extra grams of potassium did it take to make that much tissue? In the healing of my skin, I didn't add much tissue I don't think. But I had a whole new layer of healthy skin that formed under the top layer of messed uo skin that sloughed off. My blood didn't get more normal until I took Metafolin, and again I had an increased need for potassium.. The amount I needed also went down as each round of healing completed. The paradoxical folate deficiency threw monkey wrench into the works by causing a yoyo effect of my potassium need. With onset of edema my potassium need goes down. When the water pours off I need a lot more potassium. There are a lot of factors to consider.
