Ok, but I want to add that potassium raises aldosterone. I believe this is why potassium is very helpful for my POTS.One concern I would have in ME/CFS is that two studies have shown that aldosterone is low in this disorder. Normally, aldosterone acts to increase potassium excretion into the urine when it gets too high in the blood, so low aldosterone may allow the potassium concentration to rise in the blood in ME/CFS. I think it would be wise to check it periodically if potassium is being supplemented at relatively high dosages.
I am confused about how much supplemental postassium is safe?
In pills, they are only 99mg and it always says don't take more than 1.
Confused about Potassium
Potassium has a long history. The main reason I can find for limiting the supps to 99mg is tjhat large potassium chloride tablets that don't dissolve intantly can cause a potent acid to eat away at the stomach wallas killing the tissue. That is the same warning the time release potassium chloride gets now. As a powder or small content quicjkly diossolving tablet that doesn't haapen. It had nothing to do with 200mg being dangerous except as a solid pill. The Potassium gluconate in small dose high dilution pills doesn't cause the same problems for instance.
