Monitoring potassium levels

Monitoring potassium levels

Bananas are a good source of potassium!

Patients taking fludrocortisone for syncope or PoTS are prone to losing potassium. Levels should be monitored by blood tests. If levels tend to be low, eat foods containing potassium, such as bananas, dates, beans.
