within living cells‚ much more than sodium‚ and low levels of potassium inhibit cell function‚
especially those enzymatic processes requiring transport across membranes3 and
4. Muscle weakness – acute potassium deficiency‚ hypokalemia‚ may result in skeletal muscle
weakness4. Low levels of potassium are often observed in people suffering digestive ailments
and those recovering from illness.
5. Circulatory problems including high blood pressure – again‚ hypokalemia often manifests as
