blood results

hi - been told this week that as per my blood results arent right. my white blood count is up so im fighting an infection, something else is dodgy too but will find this out later this week but anyone any ideas how i can up my pottassium levels (without eating loads of bananas as they give me heartburn). i know its because of the steroids but ive been told i have to sort it out.

I'm not keen on eating loads of bananas either- I have to disguise them. I think I read that root vegetables are high in potassium. I found this list of foods that are high in potassium, hopefully there are a few things you like.

Oranges

Apricots

Avocado

Strawberries

Potatoes

Tomatoes

Cucumber

Cabbage

Cauliflower

Chard

Bell pepper

Eggplant

Squash

Crimini mushrooms

Brussels sprouts

Turmeric

Parsley

Spinach

Broccoli

Hope this helps.

Take care

Bryony
