Should I Recommend Potassium To My Patients?
Potassium has been considered a nutrient of public health concern for populations that do not regularly eat large amounts of fruits and vegetables, or follow a low-sodium diet plan. Deficiency-related conditions can require quick, decisive action to address their effects. Medical professionals have reconsidered supplementation as the viable option to quickly correct the course of care for those they treat.
Difficult To Get From Diet
Changing diets, and diet fads, have removed many of the fruit and vegetable carbohydrates that would naturally maintain the correct potassium levels in our bodies. Quick cooking methods have changed how we prepare our food and many may not realize they are cooking away their food's natural nutrients. Many people have never developed a palette for the foods that are most healthy for them although they all agree "they should eat better."
Extreme changes to a current diet may be required to adequately address potassium deficiencies. These types of changes, often being perceived as burdensome, lead to unintended failure to follow their provider's protocols and an associated reduction in the plan of care's efficacy.
Why PROs Worry About Recommending PotassiumExcessively-high potassium blood levels can be dangerous, and ensuring a precise dosage can be difficult with some potassium supplements. Healthcare professionals often encourage diet changes first because of this concern.
