Potassium too much, too little

Whilst not all types magnesium are edible, without vital ones could get migraines and blood pressure issues. Epsom salts can be dangerous if medical issues with digestive already, I tried half dose, I was ok but finished other meds. Hasn't cleared gurd.
Breaking down propan mist I may have reacted to sodium, since it's potassium and not realising this meds can be fatal. Out of interest I looked up Gaviscon and it uses same ingredients as propan mist (lookup health warning) can cause renal or bladder dysfunction and note these are connected, my reaction to black forest , senna really alerted me when my bladder retention started or propan mist gave pains in back, kidneys.

Looking into oats milk to get good potassium levels for pH of bladder (interest is incontinence in bladder, retention and treating potassium) also eating more spinach and legumes to try for absorption of magnesium, which body should dispose of excess.

Has anyone else tried potassium for bladder issues
 
I don't know what effects it has on your body but I know a lot of green vegetables such as broccoli contain quite a bit of it. The richest natural source of potassium is bananas.

Side note - commonly used blood pressure drug called Warfarin warns users about vegetables high in potassium and provides a list of foods they should avoid, but bananas aren't on that list. When an old man I knew was struggling to control his blood pressure I noticed him eating bananas and warned him about them. He checked with his doctor and the doctor said "Oh hell no. You can't have bananas, that's possibly the worst thing you could be eating.".
 
Look up potassium-rich foods. Sweet potatoes, avocados, beans, legumes, spinach and many other foods provide as much or more potassium as bananas.
 
Is your doctor recommending this?

I ask this because be careful with potassium intake without medical supervision. Potassium is an electrolyte that conducts electrical functions within the body. Too much can cause your heart to beat irregularly and/or cause a heart attack.

Yes! I want to add that unmonitored potassium intake can be especially dangerous if you have heart or kidney issues - "bladder issues", whatever you, @Kayla55, mean by this, are often linked to kidney function, since it's all part of the urinary tract system. Be a bit careful there. Potassium isn't something you should experiment much with without a doctor's advice. Eating a few bananas per day is fine if you're healthy, but already eating a moderate to higher quantity of dried fruit regularly (which are also high in potassium) can be dangerous for someone elderly and/or with a heart or kidney condition.
 
Thanks everyone,
Doc has another gurd meds, just waiting pay after last bill. Meantime I'm trying to get my probiotics back inline, trickier than ever before!! Eating cheese again and just testing testing various foods and realised it may have being last time I dewormed as I'd never felt the affect so much, maybe one time tablet instead 3 days, not sure.
Discovered making own clove tea to clean tummy bacteria, retry and may use it for deworming too!! Cloves was helping before doctor visit but antibiotics cleared pain that may being gallbladder coinciding with UTI. Will try bananas before Citra soda on occassions where it's just ant-acid/alkaline.
Just terribly upset by all this, being burping and hardly eating....good part is realising cut down coffee, drinking more water (got into rut, depression and all bad habits with it) I did see some posts from users few years ago and it is asd issue.....
 
I just wished to correct my comment here:
Pharmacists are best doctors, so my cimetidine dosage was too low 200mg, it should have being 400mg X2 daily and can take up to 6 weeks. It's unusualy longer than normal to clear.

Also depending on what you treating, if you use baking powder is ok, but to flush small stones it's mixed apple cider vinegar (online recipes with full directions) and doctor approved clove tea but in this caseit was mixed with pineapple.
Wouldn't normally add vinegar if it's just antacid.

Lastly, I being using nature fresh calcium complex as it's much cheaper, but note the dosage is much lower so actually should take 5 tablets for recommended daily allowance so if food intake but I still take magnesium which is in this mix. It's not to say Gaviscon isn't safe but to consider total potassium intake, and that it's mixed with sodium which when using salt water as laxative or detox tell you not to use sodium based salt. Thanks 4 listening

Drugs like Prilosec can raise potassium levels, so it's a good idea to monitor levels. But iff your potassium is low, potatoes have a lot--I love to pig out on french fries.
 
Here is a meds being around before Gaviscon, looks similar in creamy white liquid......see if you can read label for satefty

Pectrolyte is an international combination product that contains chloroform, kaolin, morphine tincture, pectin, potassium chloride, sodium chloride, and sodium lactate. It is used to treat diarrhea and help replace electrolytes that may be lost as a result of diarrhea or vomiting
 
The active substances are: calcium carbonate 680mg and heavy magnesium carbonate 80mg. The other ingredients are sucrose, glucose, peppermint flavour (mint essential oil, maltodextrin, silicon dioxide, arabic gum), talc, povidone, saccharin sodium, magnesium stearate.

Rennies being used over 60 years, I noted Gaviscon also uses calcium. Never had problem with rennies, but never used more 10 days.
 
Ranitidine is an antihistamine that blocks the release of stomach acid. It treats stomach or intestinal ulcers and heartburn from acid reflux. This medication is no longer on the market due to safety concerns. The brand name of this medication is Zantac EFFERdose®.

What are histamines, also occur naturally in some foods. However unless treating allergies it's not described for asd (my ex gave this to our son and told me he's in control)
May release dopamine etc. and appear to fix asd symptoms
 
When I was in hospital with my stroke they were giving me potasium pills so asked my wife to get me my salt shaker of nu salt as my dad was on a low sodium diet which I got when he passed I liked the taste better than NaCl.
 

Just decided to see if there is another cause as I did order kitsch with jallepeno after realising it was Lorain with jallepeno sent back for vegetarian tomotie n basil


So parasites may cause gerd, in my case I never spat mouthful of unkosher bacon out, rolling in eggs. I think it's German owner, he ruins the kitsch

Review of trinchinosis symptoms very similar, and ncbi relates
 
Ya the artificial foods are really causing issues mine is sugar alcohols thank God I have a chemistry back ground.
 
Gail bladder set doctor looking h1n1 but not so much kosher as vegetarian,
Diseases Associated with Meat
  • E. coli from ground beef.
  • BSE (bovine spongiform encephalitis) from beef cattle.
  • Trichinosis from pork.
  • Salmonella from poultry.
  • Scrapie from lamb and mutton.
Lot of Arabs are now vegetarian. But no canola either.
When I ate chicken I could feel my tummy jump from introducing cultures, so many avian flu scares here I went vegetarian....but that can be tricky too

I became very healthy, did not make any sense. I hardly eat even mayo or ketchup
 
The issue with factory farms isn't just cruelty, it's assessing health of animals we eat. I interviewed for work on one computer systems, so measure feed and the chickens don't develop properly in 2 months, then seeing salmon on farm images was the end for me!!

Latest issue is anti-biotics in feed, so sure they managing healthy animals but what about resistance to anti-biotics, it's speculated as a ticking time bomb.

I ate soya mince out of a box once, my tummy blew up like a balloon....this is future of where we are heading. One day we may be left with only vegetarian type meals, but read into food labels, a lot of what we eating isn't really meat. There are ways to make bratwurst appear and taste same, but it's not.
 
Plants do not like being eaten, nor does fungus lots of poisons if you are not careful. that's why I'm on the fence.
Just eat healthy. Saw farming first hand when teenager, understand it well. Not into monoculture heavy fertilizer use
My dad had cirrhosis of liver, did not drink suspect pesticides. So lots of room for improvement. I do not think vegetarianism is the solution. If you do not like my opinion Watch Good Will hunting And listen carefully to Robin Williams speech,

I had an issue my doctor gave me the antibiotic that took care of it returned years later changed doctor he was stating to go senile due to age. current doctor to arrogant thinks he is smartest guy in room. So now stuck with proton suppressant drug. I have to stay away from sugar alcohols.

Incidentally took microbiology along with chemical engineering in college.
