I wanted to get my levels between 4.5 – 5.0, as recommended for AF sufferers.
About a month ago, not having had a blood test, I wasn't aware of what my levels were, but checking my diet, I guessed I was well short of 4.5, so started supplementing with 600mg daily. Had a blood test this week, and it was 4.6. I’m guessing before I supplemented with 600mg, I was below 4.5. So that’s a good thing, and my heart seems calmer now, with less ectopics.
Now, as far as the NHS is concerned, 4.6 is just fine, so I guess I won’t be offered any more free blood tests, based on potassium levels.
There was a DIY blood tester I found on the web, for about £200 (but I've lost the bookmark - can someone help me find it?), which I can’t afford right now, so I’m fishing for feedback to see how much more potassium I might need, to bring me up to a mid-way 4.75.
Just wondered what peeps experience was, on how much the number rises, per 99mg of potassium supplementation?
