Hi I should have added that when my Potassium is too high , I have had 3 acute total Renal Failure,coma etc ( I cannot have dialysis), Normally when my Potassium is high, which , as I am sure you know, can be the result of too much Magnesium. While, it is true , I am very complicated with 10or12 co-morbidities, I leave my consultants to count, not interested! Potassium lead arrests ,which are what I have, are the most common cause of sudden death.rarely recognised by cardiologists or only the top Pathologists, So, one can never be sure ,who it is going to effect.When I was very lucky to be diagnosed in August 2010, there were only a very few Cardios even, that new about it,
Co-enzyme, Q 10, is marvellous, I have taken the max dose many years for lots of things. My sodium has to be low, must not have salt, however, usually too low, now days that is known to not relate to salt intake. I take a lot of Potassium but definitely vit K ,which would be dangerous. Magnesium is on a script, because it needs to be under a doctor and weekly blood tests. This has been the case for a long time. It can be bought as can Potassium chloride, which has a lot of deaths attributed to it. A lot of things which can be bought are not safe to take. All the same I think some alternative medicine is good, but think it should be through at least a qualified doctor. In fact, these days, a lot of my consultants like some and suggest it.Yes, Diabetes is a nuisance, however, that too, certainly in my case is pushing up the Potassium, a night mare really. it is left to me as too complicated, so I have to take great care, in hospital 3 blood tests a day also be well informed.Liver disease, which I also have, effects all the bloods, especially Diabetes, Potassium and anticoagulation. Often people do not know they have liver disease for a long time, it only shows on LFT`s when very bad.As for Calcium and vit D, another day!
